“I was immediately drawn to Calming Angry Kids because my family has had some high emotions over the years. As I read Tricia Goyer’s book, I felt encouragement and not shame. I felt as though Tricia was sitting next to me sharing her personal stories and giving me help, guidance, and encouragement for my own parenting journey. If you have a child who struggles with anger, sit with Tricia and let her encourage you as well.”
—Jamie Ivey, bestselling author of If You Only Knew, host of the podcast The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
“From the very first words of Calming Angry Kids, my heart resonated with Tricia’s story. Loving children from hard places is a beautiful calling and one that is very lonely at times. Tricia offers insight and wisdom for parents struggling with anger in their homes. She makes you feel as if she is in your corner, fighting with you for the heart of your child.”
— Natalie Gwyn, speaker,author of Okayest Mom
“As a mom of angry kids (who also struggles with anger myself!), I need this book. Tricia has faithfully hiked this rocky path of calming angry kids, and I am selfishly very grateful she has put her experiences into a handbook for the rest of us. This will be my go-to resource for years to come.”
—Emily Thomas, host of The Mom Struggling Well podcast
“These words from Tricia are whispers of hope. They offer a healing way forward for those who have felt stuck. Read them and sigh with gratitude and relief, like I did.”
— Sara Hagerty, author of Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet and Unseen: The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed
