Cool Down and Work Through Anger
Author: Cheri Meiners
Format: Paperback
, 2010
  • Everyone gets angry, so it’s never too early for children to learn to recognize feelings of anger, express them, and build skills for coping with anger in helpful, appropriate ways. Children learn that it is okay to feel angry—but not okay to hurt anyone with actions or words. They discover concrete social skills for anger management: self-calming, thinking, getting help from a trusted person, talking and listening, apologizing, being patient, and viewing others positively. Reassuring and supportive, the book helps preschool and primary children see that when they cool down and work through anger, they can feel peaceful again.

    Presented in a social story format, the book includes a special section for adults, with discussion questions, games, activities, and tips that reinforce improving social skills.
