From the Author
Chosen by CHILD Mag. as best parenting book of 1991
I consider LOVE & ANGER a sequel to my first book, LOVING YOUR CHILD IS NOT ENOUGH, Positive Discipline that Works, also published by Penguin for over a decade. In LOVE & ANGER: The Parental Dilemma, I have tried to help parents express the inevitable anger that every loving parent sometimes feels--without hurting or insulting their children. All the examples, anecdotes and dialogs are based on the contributions of actual parents who have attended my workshops over the past two decades. Practical, specific skills and techniques are offered in lieu of theory. My goal is to help parents feel less guilty about their anger, but to learn to express it in healthy ways that their children--toddlers through teens--can emulate.
