When teenagers can’t cope with their feelings maturely, they often tend to masquerade it with extreme outbursts of anger. Emotions such as shame, frustration, anxiety, hurt, depression, fear or helplessness, they all can cause a teenager to become exasperated and lash out.
Teens usually have trouble identifying and understanding the depth of their emotions and generally can’t really articulate or express these feelings responsibly. During this particular stage, parents must practice patience and need to focus their energies at helping their teenagers cope with anger in a more conducive way. They can also seek the help of a business motivational speaker who is trained to deal with matters like these.
In order to help your teens deal with anger, you need to set up some proper ground rules and punishments. Teenagers require a structure and need to be disciplined properly otherwise, they simply go completely out of control. That is why you need to establish some strict rules and make your teen aware of the ensuing penalties if they aren’t respected. Explain to them that though it’s ok to feel infuriated, there however are some improper ways of expressing it. So let them know that if they lash out and fail to express their anger in a constructive way, they will have to deal with consequences such as being grounded. Don’t pay your business motivational speaker for nothing. Get the advice you need.
