When things don’t go right. When it’s not fair. When someone doesn’t do what they promised they would. Losing or breaking something, being scared or hurt. Not understanding or being able to make something work. Any of these things can trigger anger in children. In response, they may scream, shout, or lash out.
This book helps children learn how to deal with their anger. It explains how and why we get angry, and why we think, feel and do the things we do when we’re angry. It explains how children can use up their angry energy safely, in ways that don’t hurt anyone or make things worse.
Take Charge of Anger understands what’s going on for an angry child. It suggests ways in which a child can learn to manage their anger and get help if they need it. With this book, children can learn solutions that really work so that they feel less overwhelmed and upset and more in control.
Each book in the ‘Kids Can Cope’ series is backed up with practical activities for the child to complete and discuss, consolidating and personalising learning, plus extra notes for parents or teachers.
Supports PSHE teaching in the National Curriculum, and encourages both self development and empathy for others, while fostering resilience and giving advice on how to seek help.
