Hitting Book

Do you have or work with children who express anger through hitting? These children aren’t “bad;” they just need to learn a better way to manage their anger. That’s where this book comes in! It teaches children socially acceptable alternatives to get their needs met.

Pages at the end of the book also teach adults strategies they can use to help the child in moments of upset. Print this book or use it as a template to create your own with photos of the child.
