Anger and aggression can be very scary for the teen and the parents. It can begin as irritability, i.e. talking back, yelling, and appearing disobedient. These characteristics are often over looked as typical adolescent behavior, although these can increase if not addressed. Behaviors could be affecting their relationships at home or at school. They might feel out of control of their own behaviors.
If this sounds like your teen, they could benefit from learning both ways to express their tough emotions in a healthy way and using the skills necessary to feel happy and empowered.
