Hello!  I'm looking for book recommendations--or even just some tips and techniques, if you have them!--regarding DS, 7, and learning to handle anger.  He's highly sensitive and very emotional, and we're looking for some guidance for helping him roll with disappointment, control his emotions about games and sports, and so forth.


We try to model being a good loser (or good winner), and we talk through disappointment from our own experiences, but we need to continue working on this.


Thanks in advance.

I've been slowly working through "What to do when you grumble too much" and "How to take the Grrr out of Anger" with my own little nearly-7-year-old honey badger girl, and we have both found them each helpful in different ways.

DS and I just started working with "What to do When Your Temper Flares: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Problems With Anger." We've only done a few pages but I like it a lot. DS likes that you can draw or write responses right in the book. I think we'll get the "Grumble" one next.
