Angry kids aren't bad kids, say anger experts Jennifer Anne Brown and Pam Provonsha Hopkins, western Washington counselors who have worked with angry children their entire careers. This new book, already described as "a comprehensive look at children's anger," explains why kids 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 options when more help is needed.
