Helping Your Angry Teen
How to Reduce Anger and Build Connection Using Mindfulness and Positive Psychology

From the jacket cover:


Is your teen angry all the time? Do they shut down, lash out, or blame others - namely, you - when life's challenges arise? Parenting an angry teen can be extremely difficult. You may even have trouble keeping your own cool, or worry that your relationship with your teen is doomed. The good news is that there are solid strategies you can use to stay grounded when the drama rises, put an end to angry outbursts and re-establish a healthy, lasting connection. 

Helping Your Angry Teen offers in-the-moment techniques based in mindfulness, compassion, and positive psychology to help you navigate your teen's explosive anger and restore peace to your household. You'll gain a better understanding of the psychological conditions that can contribute to teen anger, learn important skills for improving communication, and discover go-to mindfulness tips for staying calm and collected yourself. If you're ready to take control of your own reactions and start reconnecting with your angry teen, this guide will show you how.
