Anger Management For Teens - Techniques And Activities
.



.
. . .
If you are the parent of a teenager, anger management will be one of the biggest challenges that you may be facing. It is one thing that makes growing up during teens complicated and difficult – for both parents and the teenager.
Anger Management For Teens:
.
Understanding your teenager’s psyche and following a few tips can help you manage your teen’s anger better.
Why Does My Teenager Get So Angry?
.
We have all been there, haven’t we? Remember, how your parents struggled dealing with your moods and emotions during your teens? The best way to manage anger in teens is to understand why he gets so angry in first place.

2. Teenage Brain Develops Differently:
.
The two pivotal brain parts of humans develop in two different speeds during teenage years. While one part is developed fully, the other is still developing. These two parts together help them make decisions and lead life.

2. Anger Isn’t Power:
.
Most teenagers feel that anger helps them gain power and respect. They find it authoritative. This could also be because they see their elders getting angry all the time.
.
. . .


This is a long article with a number of subsections with lots o points in each.
..
I believe the suggestions are practical and likely to work for the majority of remotely reasonable teens.
.
There are points and suggestions for dealing with defiant teens. The suggestions sound like they would be effective but I've learned to never underestimate the capacity of a teen to sabotage the best laid plans to help protect them and others from themselves.
.
My favorite saying that I persistently shared with parents was that:
.
THE BEST TIME TO SOLVE TEEN PROBLEMS IS THE FIRST 6 YEARS OF LIFE.
.
It's more true now, than ever. PREVENT any ATTACHMENT DISORDER problems if at all possible. Read Dr Sibcy and Dr Clinton's book: ATTACHMENTS: Why you love, feel and act the way you do.
.
Nevertheless, this article has a lot of good input for playing catch-up with teens who likely still have some lingering attachment issues.
.
The article seems to go from the perspective that all teens get angry routinely.
.
I'd say that almost all teens with significant attachment issues get angry.
.
I've known of a few teens without serious attachment issues. They did not get angry often and not all that angry when they did. It was usually solved peacably within a matter of a few hours and certainly within 24 hours.
.
There are some good exercises in the article as well.
.
I think it's worth some serious consideration.

He can grate on me but one can learn some useful things from watching.

I threw the TV out about 12 years ago. Glad I did.

Do you have teens in your home?

A LOT of us end up in the "too soon old--too late smart" category.

I hope y'all survived those years tolerably without horrendous lasting scars.

If they are still struggling as adults, Drs Sibcy and Clinton's Attachment book might be of value to them.
