Reduce angry and aggressive behaviour of children and teens by teaching new social skills and positive ways to express frustration. Worn out parents worried by their children’s explosive, angry behaviour learn strategies to improve behaviour and create a calmer home. Exhausted or frightened by frequent outbursts, parents often try to avoid doing or demanding anything of their children that might trigger their anger.
Author Connie Schnoes tells parents not to unintentionally reinforce angry behaviour by cajoling or consoling the angry child in order to keep the peace, nor to shield children from situations that make them angry. Instead, all children must learn that feeling angry at times is a normal emotion and there are appropriate ways to control and express anger without hurting themselves or others. This book helps parents, grandparents and primary caregivers to:
- Recognise angry behaviour in children and act before it becomes a problem
- Understand a child who is often angry and learn what that anger might represent
- Teach children to stop using angry and aggressive behaviours and learn new, positive ways of behaving and expressing anger or frustration
- Know when it’s a good idea to seek professional help for a child who is often angry
