Acknowledging that anger in children is an emotion that cannot be entirely avoided, this guide for parents outlines a seven-step program to promote healthy anger management in children aged 4 to 14. The advice and experiences of mental health professionals and clinicians who are parents themselves are disclosed, with attention given to the anxiety that many parents feel when their child exhibits angry behavior. Parents learn techniques to help their child deal with stress and anger, build confidence and resilience, and use effective coping behaviors to avoid dysfunctional behavior.
