Item description for When Anger Hurts Your Kids: Changes in Women's Health After 35 by Matthew McKay, Kim Paleg & Dana Landis...
Overview Based on a study of how 250 parents copy with their anger, this handbook helps readers understand their anger and the effect it has on their children. The authors identify 16 "trigger thoughts" that cause anger, and show parents how to change these thoughts into healthy, problem-solving communication.
Publishers Description All parents get angry sometimes, but research clearly suggests that the amount of anger expressed in the family will have a negative impact on a child's performance in nearly every important area of life. When Anger Hurts Your Kids brings together the practical lessons of a 2-year study of 285 parents. You'll learn how to tell if your family has anger problems, how to combat the eighteen mistaken beliefs that fuel anger, and how to practice the art of problem-solving communication skills that will let you feel more effective as a parent and let your kids grow up free of anger's damaging effects.

Great book. Aug 31, 2006
This book explains about your emotions and trying to raise children. Some of us have short fuses and need to learn how to rethink situations that could lead to harmful situations for both parents and children. I find the material very helpful. I also bought this book for a friend who was interested in the topic and she loves it too. My husband bought it and had not touched it yet but I will keep reminding him. Great and interesting book.
A must have parenting book Oct 21, 2001
I'm going to say that this is THE best parenting book I've read (and believe me, I've read a lot!). I don't consider anger to be a big problem of mine, but nonetheless this book taught me how to keep my patience and has some awesome tips. If you're a mom or dad striving to build a great relationship with your child, go ahead and read it.
Good information to have. Jun 8, 1999
A technical book that explains the reasons parents get angry, how that affects children, and gives suggestions on how to get control of angry emotions. Lots of data to back up their ideas. For more practical ideas on how to handle parents and kids anger I'd suggest two books by Elizabeth Pantley - Kid Cooperation (How to Stop Yelling, Nagging and Pleading) and Perfect Parenting Dictionary of 1000 Parenting Tips with entries such as: Child's Anger, Parents Anger, Disrespect, Expressions of Hate, Fighting.
