More About the Author

Jerry Wilde is a professor of educational psychology for Indiana University East. Prior to this academic appointment, he spent years working with students who had emotional, behavioral, and learning difficulties. It was through his experiences with children and families that he learned the skills and techniques included in his books. His experiences with his own health problems have reinforce his beliefs about the nature of emotions. After experiencing kidney failure and being on dialysis, he was fortunate enough to receive a kidney transplant. However, he developed cancer in his transplanted kidney and went back on dialysis for two years. On February 24, 2012, he received his second kidney transplant. Through it all, Jerry remains optimistic and stubbornly refuses to let these difficulties change his outlook on life. Other than psychology, the great loves of his life are his family, the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Minnesota Twins, and Diet Mt. Dew. He can be contacted at jwilde@indiana.edu

Format: Paperback
This book is an exceptional work book for adolescents. My 12 year old son was able to use this book on his own as a learning tool. Next, we read the book together and discussed his answers. This book is great for parents and children, but could also be used by teachers, counselors, Psychiatrics, or Psychologists to help view underling anger factors.

Format: Paperback
My eight year old son has a pretty hot temper and was getting in trouble at school because of it. He was also having trouble making and keeping friends. Does this sound familiar? Read on. We liked this book because he could read it himself. It also has questions as you go through to help reinforce the different concepts and apply them to your own situation. It is amusing, I colud hear my son laughing as he was reading it and he would say "Mom come and look at this, It's really funny". The book gives clear guidelines regarding how to 'Chill Out' which my son is beginning to use with VERY good effect. I would recommend this book to anyone with an angry child.

Format: Paperback
I think this book is already helping my 11-year old son. Although I could not get him to read the book himself, he was willing to listen and interact as I read it to him. Because it is very focused and relatively short, this approach worked for us. The real breakthrough came in doing one of the distraction exercises recommended. -- My son was truly amazed as a smile played over his face and he said, "It works, I can't stay mad." He still has a long way to go, but he has some new tools now to try to change his life.

I am an 11-year-old boy in fifth grade and this book really came in handy for me. The suggestions all work, and the fill-in-the-blank makes you think. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to control their anger.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for my son, he and I sat down and started reading it and laughed from the start. My son took a great interest in reading it and is normally pretty resistant to the subject in general. The authors approach is straightforward and humorus at the same time. It is hard work trying to change a difficult trait at a young age, but this book gives good advise in a way that young people can understand, relate, and open up too. Thanks!

This book can be used directly by kids which is what I liked about it. The author has a humorous style with his writing that kept our students interested. The illustrations were clever, too.

40 of 45 people found the following review helpful By Julie Hull on April 18, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book was an excellent resource because it was a tool that both child and parent could work on together. We would read sections together and then talk about examples that pertained to our own situation and how we could handle them in a different manner. Several ideas/solutions are given in the book on how to handle anger at the child's point of view. My son is ten and using this book and counseling has helped a great deal. My son told me that the "red book" helped him. I've noticed a big improvement.

Format: Paperback
I am an intensive in-home therapist who works with chldren and adolescents ages 5 - 17. A lot of my clients have anger issues and I have been using this book with those age 13 and younger. We read a page together and then talk about any of the questions that are asked and take any surveys, etc. during our sessions. This book is a great way to introduce children to the concept of CBT without using the technical CBT language. It teaches them about automatic thoughts without calling it that and is working well with "my" kids.
I would recommend it to anyone who has a client load which includes 8 - 13 year olds dealing with anger issues.
