About This Book

When children are very angry, they don’t realize how damaging their tantrums are to themselves and others around them. This well illustrated book shows that they have a choice of going into a ‘Snit’ or showing their anger in healthy ways.

Since verbalizing anger is difficult to learn, the included Snit-O-Meter is a handy tool for them to visually show their anger level, and helps create a dialogue to resolve the situation.


"Fun and can lead to ongoing discussions..."

As an experienced counselor, I am always looking for materials that can help to convey issues that exist within the families I see each week. The Snit and George Franklin Whit has been well received by the parents that I have suggested it to. The book is fun and can lead to ongoing discussions with children about a host of developmental behaviors that inevitably come up, again and again. I recommend you take a look and see if it can be an additional tool in your practice or in your family.

The Snit and George Franklin Whit is a marvelous book that empowers children to control their anger and guides children to understand they have a choice in how they respond to what upsets them. The engaging book provides coping techniques on how to manage anger and a coloring page and Snit-o-meter to help children process skills that are taught in the book. The book is a useful tool for any mental health professional, teacher or parent."
