Editorial Reviews

Review

"Elizabeth Crary has written a sensitive story that provides productive and positive interactive ways for parents to support their children in dealing with a sometimes debilitating emotion. The practical and imaginative suggestions included in the story certainly have the potential for tempering anger and raising self-esteem." -- Daphne Muse, Children's Advocate, 6/20/91

"Finally! A book that recognizes a child's anger as a real and legitimate feeling. I'm Mad will help adults accept a child's angry feelings without shaming the child and without denying or 'fixing' the feelings. It will also help adults guide children to consider various healthy ways of feeling, expressing, and letting go of any angry feelings . . . ." -- Dr. Jane Bluestein author of Parents in a Pressure Cooker and 21st Century Discipline

From the Back Cover

Tired of temper tantrums? Foot-stomping? Children's emotions can be draining and validating strong emotions like anger can become a task for the brave. Unfortunately, telling children to "use words" or sending them to their rooms rarely provides long-term solutions to handling strong emotions. Elizabeth Crary offers options that children will enjoy and that work.

A girl is mad when a promised picnic is canceled due to rain. Her father helps her think of ways to manage her anger and feel better. The reader gets to pick a page to turn to depending on which idea she will try: pounding clay, taking a bath, singing an un-mad song, etc. We see her try many ideas and eventually begin to feel better. This is a great book to teach kids that we are in control of how we manage our emotions. We can even be creative about it!

This is a fantastic book for your 3+ year old children. My daughter, who is 3.5, had trouble labeling and expressing her emotions. Basically, this book is about a girl who is is mad after her picnic plans change. In an interactive format you and your child get to pick from the 6 choices Katie has to "get her mads out;" ranging from squishing playdough to doing a mad dance to calling a friend for advice. After reading this book a few times, my daughter started to have logical reactions to her frustrations, voicing them and then (thankfully) moving on.

I use this book regularly in my private counseling practice - what is interesting is that often the parents find it as educational as the kids do, because it models for everyone the kind of language they can use to start the conversation about difficult emotions.

I work with young children and their families and have found the Dealing With Feelings series very helpful. What I like most about these books is that present a situation and the child can choose what kind of ending they want from a number of alternative actions, and then see what the outcomes could be based on those choices. It is not preachy, and children and parents can learn about their feelings in an accepting and supportive manner.

Format: Paperback
This book is simple to read and interactive. It is useful for teaching kids about their feelings of anger and offers some suggestions on how to express themselves safely. I have used this book in the past in my counseling practice and at a K-8 charter school. I recommend this book if you would like to open discussions with children about anger.
