Anger is a natural and common feeling that everyone has from time to time. Showing anger is necessary but sometimes, children may show anger at the wrong time and place! Often children find it difficult to manage problems at school and home which make them irritable and moody. They might need some support and strategies to cope with everyday issues. Anger can be a challenging emotion for many teens as it often masks other underlying emotions such as frustration, embarrassment, sadness, hurt, fear, shame, or vulnerability. When teens can’t cope with these feelings, they may lash out, putting themselves and others at risk. Teenage girls get angry as well, but that anger is usually expressed verbally rather than physically. Teen boys are more likely to react physically by throwing objects, kicking doors, or punching the walls when they’re angry. Some will even direct their rage towards you.
