Award-winning author and psychologist Dr. Deborah Serani and illustrator Kyra Teis team up again for a companion to Sometimes When I’m Sad that tackles the difficult feeling of anger.
Anger is often an overwhelming emotion for children. Using gentle and straightforward language, Sometimes When I'm Mad describes a child's experience with anger and the many ways it can surface, along with ways children can use anger management techniques. For example:
● When anger leads to stomachaches or other discomfort, asking for a hug can help
● When an angry child yells or stomps, making things right with others can bring some relief
● When big feelings create confusion or distress, talking with an adult can provide comfort
A special section for adults offers more information on how anger is expressed by children of varying ages and discusses how to help children manage and express their anger in healthy ways. Especially useful for counselors, social workers, teachers, parents, and any other adults caring for children who struggle with anger.
