Let's talk... Sep 12, 2007
This is a great book for learning to talk about and work through strong negative emotions, which all children have, providing a model for how to be specific about what is making you mad, and how the frustration makes you feel. It is useful for both children and adults, and is a perfect tool to help open a dialogue about emotions and anger, and how to figure out ways that children can make themselves heard in a healthy, respectful manner. If tantrums, etc., have become a big issue in your family, this is definitely worth checking out. (ReadThatAgain)
