Item Description...
Anger has a positive side and can help parents identify problems in their children that need attention. This book helps parents view their anger constructively, using it to lead them to practical solutions for each of the seven most common problems that parents see in their kids. These solutions not only help children change their hearts, but also foster positive character qualities that will enable them to relate to God in a healthy way. Includes questions for discussion and special activities to do with your children.

Publishers Description
Parents often feel angry when their children do the wrong things. But responding to children in anger rarely brings about the desired result and can even have a damaging effect instead. Yet anger doesn't have to be the enemy. It can be a trigger that makes parents even more effective. Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller show them how.
Recognizing the very real emotions parents feel, "Good and Angry" taps into the constructive side of parents' anger and teaches welcome strategies for addressing the things their children do to drive them crazy. Addressing common problem areas for children-such as annoying behavior, lying, not following instructions, and bad attitudes-this book outlines seven routines that will help children improve in these areas and allow them to thrive in their relationship with parents and with others.
In "Good and Angry, " moms and dads will come to understand anger's true purpose and how they can use it successfully in their day-to-day parenting. They will also learn new approaches that will solve many common problems and, in the process, help both them and their children grow closer to God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It could change your life  Apr 2, 2006
Good and Angry is such a good book! I feel like I've experienced a shift in my thinking. I used to think that righteous indignation over being disobeyed gave me license to solve the problem full force with that anger. That had been the parenting model for me. Now it makes so much more sense to view that anger simply as a flag to identify the child's problem,  rather than the weapon, trusting God to move in the child's heart as I seek to direct them with kindness. It could almost be considered a theological shift as well as an emotional one. It has me moving in the direction of trusting God, and away from trusting myself as a parent.
#1 on my list of Top 11 parenting books- A MUST READ  Feb 28, 2006
This book is excellent. I gave a copy to everyone in my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group because I really feel this book is a must read book.
This book helps you as a parent to recognize the five basic causes of anger and gives you practical ways to help reduce your anger and use it wisely. In my experience as a parent, I was suprised by what my kids brought out in me- especially anger!
"Emotions need to be interpreted wisely...Anger, for instance, is a flag that says,"Something's wrong here, and`I need to do something about it." The anger does not define what is wrong. You need to take time to think and interpret anger's signal appropriately before you take action...We believe that the key to using anger in a productive way is to separate the trigger from the response. If you can use anger to identify problems but not react to them, your perspective on anger will change." pp. 25-26
This book is written by Christians so they do quote the Bible and talk about God in the book. However, anyone can benefit from the very practical ideas in the book.
Some of my favorites are "The Lie Detector Test" p. 174-175 and the five steps for giving instructions in chapter 3. This is where a lot of parents get frustrated because kids won't do what you ask them to do.
One book is not going to cover all parenting issues(that's why I am continually reading parenting books because I need all the help I can get!) but this book covers what many books do not- how to use anger wisely. Other books often say don't get angry or seem to assume that you won't get angry and don't tell you how to break the anger cycle. That's why I like this book so much and feel it should be a part of your parenting library because anger is a basic emotion felt by every parent.
Must Read  Aug 15, 2005
Households get busy. And kids will misbehave.

After a while,a parent's patience can run a bit thin. Especially when children do the same thing time and time again. "Will they never learn?".

The authors provide the reader with a list of tools to get through these times. The goal is to build family relationships while helping kids learn better ways of responding to life's situations.

Kids learn from us. If you ever find your patience being tested in those difficult moments, then you will want to read this book. You might be surprised how it can bring a little peace to the household while building closer family relationships.
practical and wise  Oct 29, 2004
very well written, insightful and revealing for both your childs behavior and yours as a parent
The authors run the Center for Biblical Parenting  Sep 14, 2004
In case it's not clear from the book description, these folks run the Center for Biblical Parenting, and are some of the many out there who believe they can use their interpretation of the Bible to dispense parenting advice. I haven't read the book, and it may be just great. But I do think full disclosure is important, and nowhere in the book and author description do they disclose their affiliation with the Center for Bibilical Parenting.
