I bought it thinking that it will help me with my 2 year old but this is geared to older kids. It is still a great book and I have learned a lot from it. I like the fact that is a general parenting book and not only for anger situtations.

It's excellent! When I first read it I felt like I had totally failed as a parent. It's very practical and extremely helpful. I also did not realize how much I was letting my kids manipulate me to get their own way. This book has been a huge blessing to our family!!!

As a pastor of family ministries I deal with many families that struggle with how to handle their children's anger. The Heart of Anger deals with all the right issues from a biblical perspective. The book and workbook have been a tremendous help to my ministry and my own life! I highly recommend it!

This book gave not only sound advise for the prevention of anger in children but also gave me the tools to deal with the anger I had carried with me to adulthood. What a blessing this book has been in my life. I gave copies to many of my friends!

This is one of the best parenting books I've read! And I've read many. The title may keep some folks from order thinking anger isn't really an issue in their home, but this is a book that ANY parent can benefit from. The author makes this biblical teaching very practical. Although the journaling won't work for little ones, he does tell how to make it work for younger children. I haven't implemented anything yet, as I just got the book and went on vacation, but my husband and I plan to work on things with our son (and ourselves) when we get home. A MUST READ!!!!!!

This is an extremely helpful book for all parents - not just those whose children struggle with anger. There is a chapter that lists things that parents do to provoke their kids. I was both convicted and inspired to do better as a parent. At the end of the book there is a test to find out the extent to which parents are allowing their kids to manipulate them. I was very surprised by the results. I highly recommend this book. On the down side, there are exercises in this book that can only be done by older children and I think that in reality, unless anger is a huge problem in the family, most families won't do them. Every parent who is attempting to raise godly children should read this book.

Anger is really pain...and in this book you gain the knowledge to help your child deal with those less than perfect emotions. I have read it twice and will probably read it again.
