Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Anger is "natural, normal and appropriate" and is a problem "only when we can't handle our... feelings constructively." So says Paul, a psychiatrist with a family and child practice. Anger is a response, he points out, that is nearly always triggered by a sense of helplessness, the cause of which is usually apparent after observing an angry child, and?if she or he is verbal?listening. While reassuring readers with such statements as, "You will never be completely free of causing anger in others because this is part of being human," the author offers concrete yet compassionate suggestions for ameliorating the behavior of both participants in clashes between parent and child. Leavened by anecdotes from his clinical practice and scenarios of typical familial interchanges, this eminently practical guide should prove invaluable to parents and others who work with children.

Format: Paperback
This book completely changed the way I viewed my child's anger. Now I can be more understanding of the real underlying issues involved and respond in a more constructive and confident manner. His anger is a plea for help and I am now his helper. Reading this book certainly improved our relationship.

Format: Paperback
An absolute must. This book is brief, to the point and sensible. It doesn't waste your time with a whole lot of psycho babble, but helps you discover the causes of anger that lay beneath the behavior you see. Most important for parents is to be educated on HOW we handle anger so we can make the changes in our own behavior that will break the anger cycle. An absolute keeper.

This book is short, sweet and to the point, a fast read that doesn't waste your time. It really will help parents discover the cause of anger that you can't always see. It will educate you in ways you don't expect. I had to read this for a class in college and I kept it for the future, great read.
