In language that every parent, caregiver, and teacher can understand—even when exhausted and frustrated—this guide explains why children get angry, what anger-management skills they and the entire family can be taught, how parents can model anger-management techniques, and how parents can cope when nothing seems to work. The authors, who emphasize the importance of patience and practice in developing the ability to handle anger, also explain the options available when more help is needed.
