Helping Your Angry Child: A Workbook for You and Your Family

Darlyne Gaynor Nemeth, Ph.D., Kelly Paulk Ray, Ph.D., & Maydel Morin Schexnayder, M.S.

(March 2003)







     Helping Your Angry Child, written by three leading anger researchers, is an interactive, self-help workbook written for you, the parent, with real-world solutions for helping your child deal with anger and rage. The authors of Helping Your Angry Child conducted a wide-ranging, ten-year clinical study in which parents participated with school staff and children in anger-management training. They learned that when children expressed their anger, parents took it personally, got caught in negative reactions, had difficulty staying in proper parental roles, and were bewildered by the anger. But the authors also discovered essential skills that put parents safely back in parental roles, and helped them and their children cope in healthy ways with anger.
