"What Angry Kids Need"-Anger Menu-Anger Management-Problem Solving and More

This Sunday on the MamasTimeOut© show, I had the opportunity to speak with, Pam Hopkins, MSW, children's specialist and co-author of "What Angry Kids Need". Pam shared several ideas and tips discussed in her new book, including the "Anger Menu", using anger management to help teach your child to control behavior and starting out by teaching non-verbal children using emotion words to empathize with them and help them learn words to help them express them self. As discussed in my recent book review, "What Angry Kids Need", offers parents, care givers and educators role-playing examples that can help you to mediate and help your child problem solve, use conflict management and develop limits which are non-negotiable.

While the show went really well, we were unfortunately cut off towards the end due to technical difficulties at BTR and we were unable to finish the show. I was unable to share the resource sites I normally share related to our topic and I could not announce our September Contest winner of the Dinosaur Live Experience family 4-pack tickets. Please watch for a post announcing our winner soon as well! If you are not the September winner, don't worry as I have another set to giveaway for the month of October!! So make sure you are subscribed to this blog via email to keep up to date and follow the contest rules to get extra entries to win. Members or new members to the MamasTimeOut© social network may also get entered to win by sending the most new registered referrals to the network site.
