When Kids Are Mad, Not Bad: A Guide to Recognizing and Handling Children's Anger
An adolescent boy turns hostile and sarcastic. A previously happy fourth-grader suddenly has problems sleeping. A young girl picks at her dinner and obsesses about her weight. Many behavior problems -- ranging from depression, rebellion, and addiction to aggression and beyond -- may be rooted in hidden or repressed anger.
In this helpful new guide, Dr. Henry Paul explains what makes children angry; how age, gender, and background can affect their expression of anger; the right and wrong ways to respond to anger-based behavior -- and, most importantly, how to gain a new understanding of this powerful emotion, foster healthy development, and strengthen the bond between parent and child in a loving, constructive way.
