This book provided great help with how to respond to my kid's anger & help with my anger as well. I loved the idea of being able to replace anger with love & forgiveness. Motherhood isn't easy, so we all need tools like this to help us change our perspective on the way we handle stressful times in the home.

Format: Paperback
First, YES this is a Christian-based book! Karol Ladd has several books out in Christian book-stores, the biography listed on this page mentions her Christian-based perspective, and other reviewers could have also clicked to see a few pages of the book before buying. It doesn't discredit the book that they didn't know it was Christian. The book does include pages for prayers to ask God to help with anger, BUT the other reviewers obviously did not read the whole book as that is certainly not the only tool she gives. There are assessments galore to help you gain knowledge about your triggers, sections for practical advice on how to deal with your triggers (toddler tantrums, etc.), insights into what you can do and why we react in our anger to certain things. This has been a wonderful resource for me, even leaving out the religious aspect. Her insights provoke me again and again to look deeper at the reasons I'm exploding to keep it from happening. It's invaluable.

A word to the wise- this is a *tool.* It is not a substitute for professional help. This book isn't going to fix all your problems, but it will help you manage your anger in a healthy way in addition to other tools, like your faith or a professional counselor. I personally liked the faith-based perspective, but it is easy to filter that out and get only the practical advice if Christianity isn't your thing. Its kind of like throwing the baby out with the bath water to rate the book low just because you didn't know it was religious-based. -_-

Love this book! Karol Ladd is my favorite reading, has been for years. Such a calm, compassionate, loving voice. Great advice for stressed mommies. Love Mrs. Ladds' humor, her common sense approach to stressors in a mother's life. May you enjoy this book as much as I do.
