Great book for children and parents! Jilly’s Terrible Temper Tantrums And How She Outgrew Them is a children’s book written by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. This is a great book for children as well as parents. I actually read this with my granddaughter, who is two and a half years old, and she loved it!

Finally a middle ground! As a teacher and a parent-thank you! This book really helps children talk about their feelings when they see Jilly become so upset in the story. It provides the perfect opportunity to talk about how hard it feels to be upset and what we can do to help children feel better. What I find to be most meaningful is that over time you can see (as I have in my classroom and in my home) that when you regulate with warmth and understanding, children actually become more self-regulated while sharing…

This book should be in every pediatrician’s office! As a child psychologist for over 20 years, I often search for books that provides parents with accurate advice about how best to respond to children’s negative feelings or difficult behavior. This is it and it should be in every pediatrician’s office!!! Too often parents are told to either ignore children’s negative behavior or to punish them for being unhappy. The problem with this advice is that it does not take into consideration children’s immaturity and their developmental needs…
