Very good book, 26 Jun. 2013
I bought this book to work through with my 8 year old son after searching for books on children's anger and reading other reviews. The book has lots of opportunities for children's input to keep them interested. It is very practical, which is what I wanted. The book has given my son and I a framework to discuss his anger (and other people's too!). This in itself was a big thing. My son's behaviour has changed immensely recently and I am sure that spending time with him talking about it with this book has been a big part. When anger takes hold we both know key words etc from the book that have helped make any flare ups much smaller as well. When he packed his bag and left home for 5 minutes I know it was his way of escaping the giant vaccum cleaner! (We know what I mean!) I have encouraged others in the family to have a read so we can be consistent and all benefit from the book's approach and ideas. Thoroughly recommended.
