I was recommend this book by a friend and am really pleased with it. My husband is in the Army and frequently goes away and my 7 year old son find this difficult to deal with. He was always getting angry and lashing out. When this book arrived we sat down together and read through the first 2 chapters together and worked through the exercises. They were easy to discuss with him and he enjoyed working through the book, often asking to work through the next chapter. It gave us helpful tips on how to control his anger and how to change his thinking to stop him getting angry. would really recommend this book to children who find it hard to express themselves, it is also helpful to the parent aswell.
