Parents Play Critical Role in Teen Anger Issues

Parenting Style and Anger Management

Much research suggests that parenting style can actually effect the behavior of teenagers.  Parents need to better understand the impact they have on their children and recognize their parenting style makes a difference in how their children are going in interact with other people as the grow up.

1. Parents who are authoritarians tend to dictate rules to their kids.  They are the ones bossing their kids around and barking out rules.  They will punish their kids but put little effort into rewards or show a lot of warmth.

2. Permissive parents often are the ones that simply don’t pay close attention to the kids.  They essentially let their kids do what they want, set poor or diffuse boundaries and lack discipline.  They might think they are doing their teens a favor by being their friends, but in reality they are setting them up to fail by not showing them they care what they do.

3. Authoritative parents set appropriate boundaries, use warmth and love, and have appropriate discipline.  These are the parents that are most respected by their children because they know they are loved and cared for but also know what the boundaries are in their life.

Once big step parents can take to improve their interpersonal relationships with their kids would be to enroll in an anger management class.  Anger Management classes are not just for hostile parents or hot heads  They teach skills to help improve interpersonal relationships.

Regardless of where you live, you can take an online anger management class or have access to specific classes just for anger management and parenting.
