We've all seen them -- children whose tantrums leave their parents embarrassed and desperate to quiet them; touchy teens who escalate innocent comments into raging arguments. Or friendless kids who got that way by habitually turning play into fighting.

Uncontrolled anger is the common factor in all such situations. In The Angry Child, Dr. Murphy tells parents how to recognize excessive anger in their children and how to change their own and their child's behavior in order to defuse it. Dr. Murphy alerts parents to the ten characteristics of an angry child (and the four types of families who produce them), tells parents how to evaluate the barrage of "do's and don'ts" they hear from other parents and the media, and points out the fallacy of the belief in venting anger and the value of diffusing it instead.

Destined to be a classic in the style of Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems, The Angry Child offers real solutions for a widespread parenting concern.
