Unresolved Anger - Parents of Teens - Real Tools for Parenting Well

Unresolved Anger

 

Those who control their anger have great understanding, those with a hasty temper will make mistakes. - Proverbs 14:29 (NLT)

Don’t be quick–tempered, for anger is the friend of fools. - Ecclesiastes 7:9 (NLT)

_______________________________

One of the most important areas in which a teenager needs training is in how to handle anger. Anger is normal and occurs in every human being. The problem is not the anger itself, but in managing it. This is where most people have problems. - Ross Campbell

_______________________________

Some aggressive teens have difficulty putting frustration and anger into words, and thus they act out violently...You may need to help your teen develop a vocabulary regarding feelings. Talk to her about it saying, “I am mad/sad/frustrated/ashamed/scared.” Tell her when you are feeling these emotions and suggest them to her when she is upset.

Do not rescue your teen from the consequences of his anger.

If your actions do not bring about more...self-control, you may need to bring in other resources to help. Groups and counselors can be a big help here.

If your teen’s aggression is dangerous to others or himself, he may need to be placed in a residential treatment center or a boarding school that handles aggression.  Don't be afraid to send your child away. A treatment center may save his life. - Dr. John Townsend
