Anger Management Workbook for Kids
This comprehensive resource is structured in three parts:
- Understanding Anger

In the COOL KID JOURNAL, Mike, a 12-year-old boy who used to have anger issues, shares with your child all the healthy coping strategies that have helped him and his buddies learn to tame their angry monster.
Let’s explore the anger workbook in more detail
1. Understanding Anger
The first part answers important questions, like:
- What is anger?
- What are my anger triggers?
- What are my anger warning signs?
- Anger Behaviors
It also has two anger trackers
2. Anger Coping Strategies
The second part explores different anger management strategies and why those strategies work.
There are 11 coping strategies for anger:
- Asking for help/sharing
- Breathing techniques
- Relaxation strategies
- Dealing with our thoughts
- Taking breaks
- Burning out anger
- Sensory strategies
Each of these eleven coping categories is broken into different strategies or techniques, so the diary presents 70 activities.
3. Anger Coping Cards
There are a total of 70 anger coping cards (70 calm down cards as per the strategies explored in part 2)
The main focus is the development of coping skills for anger, so part 2 is the most important part of this book.
Each coping strategy that they will learn in part 2 comes with its own calm down card in part 3 (they are shown as a medium-size “thumbnail” in the coping strategies section, so you will easily recognize them)
Coping cards can be useful tools for anybody needing support when making coping choices.
The picture below shows how parts 2 ad 3 of this workbook connect:

If your kids’ anger management problems are difficult to manage you need to seek professional help.
Tantrums and meltdowns may be absolutely normal. But there are also cases in which those episodes are very intense or happen too often.
A health professional will also assess if they are developmentally appropriate.
Some of the reason why aggressive behaviors may be present can be:
- Learning disabilities
- Sensory processing issues
You need professional help to assess if there is an underlying problem that requires specific interventions.
