Product Description

Anger is a part of life. We can?t avoid it, we shouldn?t stuff it, and we can?t make it go away. Kids need help learning how to manage their anger. This book speaks directly to kids and offers strategies they can start using immediately. Blending tips and ideas with jokes and funny cartoons, it guides kids to understand that anger is normal and can be expressed in many ways?some healthy, some not. It teaches them how to recognize anger in themselves and others, how to deal with situations and emotions (loneliness, guilt, frustration, fear) that lead to or mask anger, and how to deal with the anger they feel. Young readers learn that violence is not acceptable and there are better, safer ways to resolve conflicts. They also discover what to do when people around them are angry, how to get help, and how to locate other resources (books, hotlines, school groups) when they need more support.

  • Somehow it sinks in.
    My son was suspended from his school, 3 times in 2 weeks. (He's only in first grade)They were one day suspensions, but regardless, he was suspended for anger behavior issues. And as a parent it kills you inside to think that your child could be so bad. I sat him on my lap at my computer and we researched it together. We picked out these books together and strange as it may seem, soon after his behavior started to change, it was like he was someone elses The lessons we went through were amazing as far as learning together what he should do and as a parent how to approch situations. For example, my son flew off the handle when someone would smirk at him or laugh at him. Make fun of
    his behavior. IN the book it gives a situation, what if you were walking down the hall and a kid bumped into you knocking your books to the floor, what would you do. My son said I would scream at him to "watch out man or next time you'll get it!" IN the book it tells you it was a handicapped person in a wheel chair that bumped into the student, before
    hand. So that you can set up the question correctly. I asked my son what if it was Dennis? (A Kid in his school who is in a wheel chair), He said then I would not have screamed at him. And we both learned as the book teaches, you can control your anger, YOU decide if you want to be mad, no one else, can make you mad. You choose to be mad or not. He is my first born of 2, I don't have all the answers, I learn as I go, but I know I love him enough to try anything. And my son is amzingly different now. Thanks to these books. Thank you, "Getting the GRRR out of Anger", We have learned alot as a family. ...more info
  • self help for children
    The text and illustrations make this self-help book appealing for children. They can read it independently but parents and teachers should read it also. It gives concrete steps for handling anger, seeking help when adults are angry, etc. The introduction starts with a discussion of why you need this book. This book increases understanding and options. It also has a message for adults, resources for kids and adults, and an index for easy reference. This little gem fits into small hands nicely and should be used as a frequent resource. ...more info
  • Good practical book
    I bought this book because I'm getting ready to teach 5th graders, but I have a 5 year old at home and began reading it to him when I received it. He loves for me to read it aloud to him. It is a really practical book for children. It gives them lots of real life situations to evaluate. ...more info
  • Great Anger Handbook
    Wonderful explanations of what anger is, how to recognize the feelings, how to express the feeling in a healthier way and how to problem solve. My daughter loved the examples of dialogue as they were accurate samples of what she deals with on a daily basis with her peers at school. I appreciated the fact that we could pick it up and read any chapter without reading the entire book. My daughter has also benefited by reading a book called Angry Octopus: A Relaxation Story. She feels empowered by both of these books and is now implementing taking a deep breath to calm her anger just as the octopus does in Angry Octopus. It is a winning combination....more info

  • Great Book to Indentify & Deal With Anger
    This is a great book to help children identify the physical signs of anger and to sort out the emotion they are feeling. It also teaches strategies to "tame your temper". I made a "cheat sheet" for my son to use when he gets angry with anger strategies. My 7 year son with autism uses strategies suggested in this book. ...more info
  • Great book for little kids with anger issues!
    I have been using this book to help my two sons, ages 8 & 11, understand and control thier tempers. I have read several of these types of books to them and I feel that this one has been the most effective. The book is written with an appealing age appropriate sense of humor and the illustrations are fun for them to look at. This book contains all of the important themes about anger but is presented in a way that appeals to kids. I highly recommend this book to parents of kindergarten through seventh grade kids that have anger issues. Thanks for a great book! ...more info
  • Take the Grrrrr Out of Anger
    This book was bought for my 10 year old girl who was developing some anger issues. Even though we have talked about it, she was in denial. One day, she became very angry and it escalated. For her one of her punishments, I required her to read 3 chapters (since the chapters are short) everyday and then we would discuss it. She was very reluctant. However, after reading the first couple of chapters, she came to me and told me she learned alot. She even talked about, which she would never do before. This was a very very helpful book. ...more info
  • It's a cute book . . .
    This is a very cute book, but to find the time and place to sit down with an angry kid hasn't come about just yet, it's one of those that I'll have to read and then take the ideas to the kids.

    Definitely a book I'd suggest though . . . I just haven't gotten a chance to use it the way I'd like yet!...more info
