Are you struggling with anger management?

Anger can cause many different symptoms. It might affect how your Chile feels physically or mentally, or how they behave. Some children or teens become aggressive towards others when they’re angry. Other people hide their anger and may take it out on themselves.

What is Anger?

Anger is a natural emotion. It is nature’s way of telling us that something in our lives has gone wrong. Anger occurs as a defensive response to a perceived attack or threat to our well-being. In addition to psychological changes, like any emotion, anger is accompanied by physiological changes.

For children, anger issues often accompany other mental health conditions, including ADHD, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Tourette’s syndrome.

The Onebright difference

What you need to know

In CBT, the therapist and client work together to identify and change negative thinking and behaviour patterns that may contribute to emotional distress. The focus of CBT therapy is to alter and change these thoughts or self-talk which express one’s beliefs and perceptions. Cognitive approaches focus on replacing one thought, belief, or form of self-talk with another. CBT Therapy also focuses on teaching the client more balanced ways of thinking about and coping with life events and relationships.

Children happen to take the worst of a parent’s anger issues, children that grow up in an angry household tend to be fearful especially towards the dominant parent, they mimic theirs parents’ behaviors by showing aggression and naughty behaviour around their parents and siblings.
Children display emotional issues and live under a cloud of judgment that leads to depression, low self-esteem, and dishonesty.

Teenagers have a tendency to rebel or fight back while living in a concoction of mixed emotions topped off with low self esteem and self-pity
