through my child's eyes
on December 28, 2007
This is an excellent book to help discuss anger from a kid's perspective, when my logic of "just get over it" obviously doesn't work!
As expected, it took some time to win my 7 year old over - he was angry about having to confront the problem - but he really got into it after a while.
It's not a quick fix - the child still has to do the work and practice the techniques - but it is a great guide to help parents and children deal with anger management at a young age. Especially important is that it puts the responsibility for the emotion on the child's shoulders where it really belongs. The author lets children know she understands what they are thinking but that it is not an excuse for letting anger brew.
