Anger Management Games for Children


This practical handbook helps adults to understand, manage and reflect constructively on children’s anger.

The book covers the theory behind the games in accessible language, and includes a broad range of enjoyable activities for different sized groups.

The games address issues that might arise in age-specific situations such as sharing a toy or facing peer pressure. They also encourage children to approach their emotions as a way to facilitate personal growth and healthy relationships.


This book is a model of good writing: clear and accessible. We need to attend more carefully in pastoral care to the emotional world of children and Plummer is a skilled guide - James Woodward, Canon of St George's Chapel, Windsor

Throughout, Plummer is sensitive to the influence of environmental factors in shaping a child’s expression of anger making her writing approach empowering and child-centred...Plummer has written a concise and helpful book that parents, teachers and some healthcare professionals could benefit from drawing upon. The games are imaginative and designed to both benefit the child but also the facilitator. - Dr Stephen Bainbridge, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Trustee of the Encephalitis Society
