Alex is angry. During practice before the big game, his teammate Emma won’t pass him the ball—and then she has the nerve to pass it to Sam! Thankfully, Coach Ryan understands plenty about anger. When Alex reveals his irritation in an unhealthy way, Coach Ryan has biblical tools and wisdom that will help Alex calm his anger and identify the underlying emotion beneath it so he can rejoin the team.
Psychologists have long labeled anger a “secondary emotion.” It’s there to cover up other negative feelings such sadness, betrayal, and embarrassment. Dr. Josh and Christi Straub want children to understand that being angry is not a bad thing: we can express our anger in healthy ways, and we can use it to help us figure out what we’re struggling with deep down. What Do I Do with Anger? models this approach to anger in a fun and relatable way for children, ages 4-8.
