Parenting is never easy. “Why is my child so angry all the time?”
Whether they throw their smartphones against the wall when they’re frustrated that an app won’t work, or they tell and swear when they don’t get their way, teens who can’t manage their anger are bound to have serious problems. While some lash out verbally, others may become physically aggressive. If they don’t learn how to manage their anger, they’ll have difficulty at school, in relationships, and in their careers.
Although anger is normal, healthy emotion, it’s important to know how to deal with it. Knowing how to cope with anger and how to express it in a socially appropriate manner are important skills for teens to learn.
Your child may be taller than you and seem mature in some aspects, but often they are simply unable to think things through on an adult level.
PS: Whatever problem your child is experiencing, it is not a sign that you’ve somehow failed as a parent. Instead of trying to assign blame for the situation, focus on your teen’s current needs.
