Adolescent anger management is such a tough problem because adolescence is an in-between time--a teen is no longer a child and not yet an adult. Anger is often a natural part of this transition from childhood to adulthood.
Angry teens are not bad kids. They're having trouble with anger, and that makes them tough to deal with, but when you learn to understand, empathize and respond in a helpful way, you'll see them improve and become the good kids they really are.
They're having those anger problems for very good reasons. Find out (on this site) what those reasons are, and you can help them.
