Cool Down and Work Through Anger
Trim Size 9" x 9"
Page Count 40
Everyone gets angry, so it’s never too early for children to learn to recognize feelings of anger, express them, and build skills for coping with anger in helpful, appropriate ways. Children learn that it is okay to feel angry—but not okay to hurt anyone with actions or words. They discover concrete skills for working through anger: self-calming, thinking, getting help from a trusted person, talking and listening, apologizing, being patient, and viewing others positively. Reassuring and supportive, the book helps preschool and primary-age children see that when they cool down and work through anger, they can feel peaceful again.
Praise for Cool Down and Work Through Anger
“Cool Down and Work Through Anger is an ideal resource for home, school, and childcare settings. When children understand and learn important basic social skills, they are better prepared for successful interactions with teachers, family, and friends.”—Arizona Parenting
“Cool Down and Work Through Anger is highly recommended for kids ages 4–8 who have anger management issues or concerns.”—Midwest Book Review
“Cool Down and Work Through Anger is an excellent book for helping children understand this unpleasant but normal emotion. The book gives very helpful strategies for helping children deal with anger.”—Marian Marion, Ph.D., professor, early childhood education, Governors State University
“A delightful addition to the series. I particularly like the focus on what kids can do to handle their anger more constructively, rather than focusing on what not to do . . . The cognitive-behavioral perspective is also quite helpful—that changing thoughts as well as behaviors can help with handling anger . . . Will appeal to kids as well as those who work with them.”—James J. Crist, Ph.D., author of What to Do When You’re Scared and Worried and Mad
