If anger were an art form, I think teens would be the Michelangelo’s of the world!
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
You know what I’m talking about. The verbal tirades of a 17- year- old… the empty cussing
of your child’s friends… even the icy silence of a troubled teen. I might be describing
some of the colorful behavior in your own home!
After seeing some of the angriest teens come through the doors at our residential counseling
center in Texas, I’ve learned that many kids are upset because they’re encountering
things in life they weren’t prepared for. The disappointment and confusion blindside
them… and their response is pure anger.
Next time anger flares up in your home, be sure to keep your cool. Then …take a look
behind their outrage …and try to find out what’s really going on.
