					Anger Management - Dealing With Anger in Teens
Behavioral issues with a teenager such as dealing with anger can be
addressed by the teenager themselves looking into their present life
circumstances. Such circumstances can be how they see their life and
where their anger stems from. It is the personal feelings of the teenager
and their sudden explosive nature that are both connected.
A symptom of anger in a teenager is their unhappiness in life and in
particular certain circumstances that they are dealing with, or more
importantly what they are NOT dealing with.
Finding the connection between the teenagers own feelings and their anger
is one such technique to make improvements in their life and forms a
sound platform for anger management. When the teenager exhibits
behavioral issues you must agree that the quality of their life is not
quite what it should be when they should be enjoying life to the fullest.
Lets discuss one very important proven technique in anger management for
the teenager.
Take a piece of paper or note book and write down the headings of how you
feel about your present circumstances that makes you feel angry. Such as,
"No one likes me and no one will listen to me", "I hate my
friends/mother/father/sister/teacher", "I have no money and I am a
failure" or "I am a bad person so I will act like one".
These examples are just a few, write down your own individual thoughts
YOU FEEL about your circumstances that lead you to feel angry. Not what
you think your friends feel but exactly what you feel. If you think you
are just no good then write that down.
Pretty soon you will have quite a list of your negative feelings of your
anger and some of your responses might surprise you. It is in reality
when you read your list that you will see clearly how you feel about your
present circumstances and how you feel about your life in general.
Reading this list you will want to make changes that will build your
opinions that in turn improves your ability to control your feelings of
anger.
Now with each heading you have written down you will identify it as a
negative thought in your life. We will now change each negative heading
into a POSITIVE heading. This is the power of positivity that will
improve your feelings of belief.
This is how we do it. Lets say the heading is, "No one likes me". The
positive to this is, "I am a charming and likeable person'" and we write
that down. Go through your list and change all the negatives into a
positive. As you write the positives don't you feel some empowerment,
some encouragement and some feeling of believing in yourself?
It is working already. Now we take our positives and write them on a
small poster and hang it on the wall of our favorite area such as the
fridge or our bedroom. As you walk past your poster read aloud your
positive headings and learn to believe in your positives.
Your poster will now be called "My Inspirational Poster". Each time you
read your headings and believe in your headings you will find as time
passes by that you do not look upon yourself as angry and filled with
hatred but powerful and confident with a beautiful friendly and welcoming
personality.
Your Inspirational Poster is becoming your daily affirmations that will
empower you and provide you with one very small technique in building
your ability to control your anger and forms part of your anger
management program that will build your self confidence.
