      This book is an excellent resource for parents and teachers of school-aged children regarding teaching kids to manage anger and other strong emotions. It is laid out in a workbook format that allows parents and kids to read about strategies and then come up with their own real life scenarios and solutions. It helps kids to work on changing unhelpful thinking and behaviors and to solve problems in an approach similar to cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. Of note- the strategies in this book [...]

      Another hit in the "What to Do" series. My daughters and I have talked about these tools and techniques one on one, with the rest of the family over the dinner table, and many other places. Usually they bring it up when their sibling is starting to lose control- but hey! Recognition is happening. Next is working on personal application. :)Ideas for dealing with short fuses, prickly balls other people throw at you, cool thoughts, and taking a break among others are shared. Several examples and ex [...]

      This workbook is a great guide for parents and kids looking to better manage big emotions. It is non-pathologizing, normalizing, and uses humor to make it accessible. I have used with my own kids and those I work with. Appropriate for ages 6-10.

      Have an angry kid? Get this book. It offers solid practical advice for how to recognize, manage, diffuse, and delay those angry emotions.

      Note: kids need to be able to grasp analogies in order for them to get anything out of this book.This book is not preachy, but it speaks to children about anger - it mostly explains how it works. For instance "its a terrible feeling to have anger trapped inside like that. Cooling thoughts help, but sometimes they aren't enough. When anger has made its made into your whole body, it needs to be released to help your body feel okay."By explaining the mechanism of anger, it helps redirect the respon [...]

      What a great book! I strongly recommend it to everyone of all ages - seriously! I was so impressed that here is a book that addresses anger issues in the way that I firmly believe emotions MUST be dealt with. It walks the reader through steps to identify issues that are upsetting and how to deal with them in constructive ways. The greatest lesson, in my opinion, that is eloquently taught in this book is the fact that individuals are responsible for their own reactions to situations they encounte [...]

      This is geared for 6-12 year olds, and I think it'll be age appropriate. I've been looking for some tools to help the kids cool down. This book takes a very logical approach and uses some good analogies. Many of the ideas are things I've already said, but it might be better received coming from a neutral party. There are lots of practical things to try, and there are places to write down thoughts or draw pictures. I checked it out from the library, and it seems useful enough that I bought a copy [...]

      Our 8 year old started reading this yesterday and already using some of the strategies in the book. The book starts off with an extremely kid-accessible way of explaining that only we are responsible for our anger, and encourages kids to think about how anger negatively impacts them. The next chapters describe strategies for cooling off before getting angry. I love how a book is able to get through to her in a way that I was unable to do. And I'm thinking these strategies could help me tooI do p [...]

      It may be written for children, but it is perfectly suited to me, the mother, as well. (Maybe I'm just juvenile when it comes to anger management.) Great ideas to try and skills to learn. I read it aloud with my daughter and we had great discussions about the topic. Because we read it together, I think it will really help my family with being slow to anger and resolving issues and reducing contention. And isn't that what all families want? :) Highly recommended if your family, children or adults [...]

      This was a really great book to read as a mom. It has helped me gain a better understanding of how to talk to my kids about their tempers, their feelings, and then how to cope better with them. I really appreciate the author doing such a great job of carefully putting together a book that can help both parents and kids learn how to cope with their anger in a helpful manner.

    11. Alicia on said:

      Interactive workbook in chapters, with concrete ideas and activities to get kids thinking and talking about managing anger. I know a certain 7-year-old who will definitely be getting a copy of this to work through.

    12. Pawsitive SchoolCounselor on said:

      One of my most used workbooks in my office. It's a great way of showing students they are in control of their anger. Although some don't get it, I love the message that no one makes them angry, they "choose to be angry." I have recommended this to lots of parents.

    13. Erica Swenson on said:

      This is a great series of books for helping kids deal with pessimism, anger, worrying, and other things.

    14. Amyiw on said:

      Has some interesting suggestions. We'll see how well they work and if children understand the analogies. I find them very on spot.

    15. Lisa Lewis on said:

      This is one of the best books I have seen for children's anger management. Concisely written with clear instructions to tackle uncomfortable feelings. Highly recommended!

    16. Maggie on said:

      Easy to read and easy to follow, What to Do When your Temper Flares lays things out simply so that you and your child can start conversations and put things into practice.

    17. Jean-Paul Eberle on said:

      A useful developmentally appropriate guide for introducing youth (ages 5-11, roughly) to coping skills for the more difficult emotions (i.e. - anger).
