Teenagers are full of raging hormones and can be difficult for parents to raise during the teenage years. Teens are even more difficult when struggling with anger issues. Anger issues can lead to violence making parenting and living with a teenager difficult to the point of frightening. Teenage anger is something that can be treated.

What is Teen Anger?

As a parent or grandparent, you may wonder if you will ever be able to connect with your child or grandchild again once they hit puberty, and become a teenager. Thankfully, teenage anger is treatable and it is relatively common, even at the extreme level. Back chats, talking back and always ready for a deliberate fight are all part of growing up. Anger in many teenagers does not get out of control but in some it gets to the point where it is just too much.

When the tension and anger elevate to the point of more than just talking back, or when it is continuous, intervention and treatment need to be considered. Societal issues, peer pressure and the mix of raging hormones and emotions inside the teenager make for a dangerous cocktail and this can lead to anger issues that require treatment beyond what general good parenting can offer.

Symptoms of TEEN ANGER

Defining the symptoms of teen anger is hardly necessary. All teenagers will go through a rebellious period at some stage and this is to be expected. However, in some teenagers, the rebellion is more open and aggressive, to the point of becoming violent. In others, the anger is less violent, manifesting more as mild outbursts. When the anger becomes noticeable, more frequent and more violent or disruptive, it requires treatment.

Serious anger issues in teenagers nearly always have a root cause such as problems at home or at school. The symptoms of teen anger can become more and more aggressive and threatening. The outbursts can become violent and irrational behavior can become dangerous. The anger issues affect family and loved ones and in some cases law enforcement is called in. The stressors of modern society have made anger in teens a great deal more troublesome and prevalent.

Anger treatment in teens requires specialist help. Anger can perhaps only be suppressed and cannot really be controlled through medication as with some other mental disorders. For effective treatment, therapy is required to address the cause of the anger rather than the symptoms. Anger management treatment opens up the patient allowing deeper problems and emotional issues to be brought to the surface and addressed. The aim of anger therapy in teens is to return calm to chaos and restore a sense of wellbeing.
