People usually associate temper-tantrums with children, but adults are being caught now pitching a fit.
CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported that more and more adults are being caught on tape throwing temper-tantrums. They kick, scream, fall to the floor, and throw things — and it doesn’t take much to set them off.
Adults throwing tantrums are also being caught on video thanks to today’s technology. But could there be something more going on?
Treating intermittent explosive disorder, from Harvard Medical School:
"A number of medications are known to reduce aggression and prevent rage outbursts, including antidepressants (namely selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs), mood stabilizers (lithium and anticonvulsants), and antipsychotic drugs."
Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Child Mind Institute, under the subheading "Treatment":
"…a variety of medications have been used to help people with IED, including antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, as well as anticonvulsants and other mood regulators. After a careful evaluation, a psychiatrist will prescribe the appropriate type of medication for an individual case."
I'd venture to say this is a direct result of lack of parenting and lack of morals in the home.

Actually, in my experience
the LIBERAL REGRESSIVES seeking to "progress" us all the way back to Babylon
are much MORE addicted--in sheer numbers and in intensities--to the sense of ENTITLEMENT than conservatives come close to being.
I suspect there's some documentation on that but I don't have any ref's handy.
Sorry there bud its not the liberals who are stuck in the past, good to see you blaming the liberals again, the harder you guys try, the bigger the fail.
Most liberals dont follow a book written by men more than 2000 years ago.edit on 21-5-2016 by dukeofjive696969 because: Silly iphone
