“I hate you!”
These are the angry words no parent ever wants to hear. 

These words can make even the strongest of parents fall to their knees wondering “what did I do wrong?!” And, sadly, one in five tweens and teens experience anger issues.

While everyone gets mad sometimes, it is tricky to know when anger is masking other feelings like worry, grief and frustration. It can be difficult to understand if your child’s anger is normal “teenage stuff” or if it is something more.

Anger can put a strain on your family and increase more than just arguing. Often families have increased …

● exhaustion
● fatigue
● worry about where your child is or who he or she is with
● disrespect
● withdrawal
● fear and worry
● intimidation
● isolation
● despair over failed attempts to communicate and connect

It's Essential to Understand and Manage the Anger

Your adolescent’s anger can make you feel uncomfortable and there is a natural tendency to want to change or stop the situation so the anger will evaporate. However, there is something triggering the anger. You may not be able to stop the triggers, but you can learn to help your child understand and manage the anger.
