As a parent, are you witnessing teen anger? Your teen, with raging hormones and an over committed schedule may find that anger is an easy way to express stress. Yet, the outburst can cause damaging results. Teens express their anger for any number of causes such as getting a poor grade in school, losing in an athletic competition or having a bad hair day.
Although expressing anger can be a normal occurrence at times, parents should guard against the anger escalating and occurring more frequently. Here is a program that is very effective for parents to use if they believe that teen anger is getting out of control.

Teen anger is an emotion that expresses itself from time to time but be careful if the outbursts can cause harm to the teen or someone else. I raised two sons who could get very angry at times, especially in athletic competition. I have witnessed a plastic water jug and tennis shoes being hurled through the air. However, when things calmed down, we talked about alternative ways of venting frustration and anger. It's a lesson that kids have to learn. Managing anger is a life skill to be practiced. Don't let the anger be a cause for disastrous outcomes.
