Overview

Publishers Description
You can be good -- and angry. After all, everyone gets angry once in a while. That's normal. But what should we do with our anger? Do we have any choices?

Mad Isn't Bad says children do have choices. Just as importantly, caring adults have choices about what to teach children about anger. By helping children and ourselves better understand what anger really is -- and knowing what it feels like and what makes us angry to begin with -- we can learn and teach healthy ways to handle it.

Mad Isn't Bad is a book every parent, teacher, and caring adult will appreciate -- because it offers children of all ages a positive and honest view of anger -- and what to do with it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too much info  Apr 18, 2006
We were hoping the book would provide more ideas about how a child can appropriately express and deal with their anger or being mad. The book excessively addresses what can cause someone to get mad, but not enough solutions for our needs. The artwork was a bit too "busy" but could definitely spark some conversation. However, the content is geared to the age range listed in the description. Most of the solutions are suited to a child that is mature enough to stop themselves to talk it out. Again, the book is probably much more helpful to a child 6-8 years old.
 
Helpful for our family  Dec 1, 2005
I have a wonderful girl who has been having trouble expressing her feelings. I got Mad isn't Bad hoping it would start some discussions for us, and it did. The elf-help series seems to be just what our family needs as a discussion starter so we can work together to solve problems. In reference to a different review, I think the being mad at God page could be taped together or merely skipped, but for our family, it was appropriate, since that's something she has asked me about.
 
The BEST for teaching young kids anger management skills  Jun 25, 2004
Anger that leads to aggressive behavior is one of the number one reasons that parents of young children seek counseling. Parents often feel at a loss as to how to teach their children skills for anger management, and kids don't know that there are choices about how to express this emotion without aggression. An excerpt from the note to parents in the beginning of the book states, "What a gift we offer children when we show them that we can channel the energy of anger to make constructive changes and get positive results. We can teach them the benefit of talking it out, rather than slugging it out; the value of creative, assertive confrontation; the helpfulness of physical outlets for frustration; the value of letting go and forgiving." This book does an excellent job of communicating to young people the positive and peaceful ways of handling anger. The beautiful and expressive illustrations are an added bonus. As a practicing Child and Family Therapist, I have often used this book for pre-readers, who I have tell the story to me based just on what the illustrations show. This has led to some wonderful discussions about solving anger problems, as the children relate to what the characters are experiencing.

Mad Isn't Bad says children have choices-just as caring adults have choices about what to teach children about anger. Through understanding what anger feels like and what triggers it, we can learn and teach healthy ways to handle it. Mad Isn't Bad is a book every parent, teacher, and caring adult will appreciate. It offers children a positive and honest view of anger and what to do with it.

 
Mad Isn't Bad  Jan 3, 2004
This is a wonderful book to use in the classroom. When teaching diversity or having group discussions or just helping students accept other students who may have behavioral issues due to personal problems, Mad Isn't Bad can be used in sections or units. I wouldn't recommend reading it all at once rather using it as a tool to teach about anger and how to deal with anger. It is surprising how children exposed to such discussions can help improve classroom dynamics!
 
Don't bother with this one.  May 8, 2003
Enough of the pop-psych! This book bores my kids. It also bores me. There's no plot, no story, nothing.
So many children's books try to be self-help books that are geared for adults. Most kids don't need this and don't want this.
I also disagree with the way the whole subject is handled in this book. One example, "it's okay to be mad at God." I don't want to teach that to my kids. This is just another one of those books with a message, no plot, no in-depth characters, and so forth.
I once read that books that do not stir a child's imagination are a waste of time. This book is a waste of time. My suggestion - try to avoid all the self-help/pop pscyh trends, and go for the REAL books, books with a good story line.
