Books for children and those who care for them
If you're researching a story on angry, disruptive or destructive kids, or need an expert for a broadcast interview, you'll want to talk to Jennifer Anne Brown and Pam Provonsha Hopkins.
These Seattle area therapists, both mothers of two, are the most upbeat anger specialists you'll probably ever find. And their new book, What Angry Kids Need: Parenting Your Angry Child Without Going Mad, has already been described as the most comprehensive discussion of anger in children ever published.
They'll help your readers and listeners understand why kids get angry, the importance of parents modeling good anger management, and how to help kids cope with anger—or avoid it.
(And if you'd like a feature story about the challenges of co-authoring a book on such a difficult topic when you're working full-time, nurturing a newborn, and responding to the comments of more than two dozen peer reviewers, the Parenting Press marketing staff will be glad to provide contact information.)
