Why Kids STAY Angry

Anger in children and adolescents is one of the toughest behavioral issues to manage. This is partly because the expression of anger “feeds” the next angry outburst. In other words, angry behavior is self-reinforcing because of the “benefits” it creates for the individual. Consequences alone usually don’t slow down the angry youngster much at all. Nationally recognized psychologist and author, Dr. James Sutton, explains the issues of anger in young people, why they are so difficult to address, and how we can better address the needs of the angry child or adolescent.
