This book offers you an interactive, self-help workbook that will help you help your child control his or her anger.
The authors of the book conducted a wide-ranging, ten-year clinical study in which parents participated with school staff and children in anger-management training. They learned that when children expressed their anger, parents took it personally, got caught in negative reactions, had difficulty staying in proper parental roles, and were bewildered by the anger. But the authors also discovered essential skills that put parents safely back in parental roles, and helped them and their children cope in healthy ways with anger.
In this clearly-structured workbook youll learn the three essential components of parenting an angry child: how to always be prepared to be a good parent, how to teach children anger management skills, and how to relate within the family when strong emotions arise.
You wll also find out how to define good parenting and resolve excess emotional baggage from your past to so that you can remain nurturing in the face of a child's anger. The book offers strategies to understand, recognize, label, and deal with the anger your child expresses. Teach your child anger management skills, listen without reacting to his or her anger, use anger alternatives, and address and resolve this difficult emotion within your family structure.
