People should control their emotions and stop being a slave to them. No excuse for behaving like a brat.

I would have thought Harvard Medical School was above publishing sketchy studies that pretend like mood swings are something new.

I am shocked that unstable little bags of hormones are, in fact, unstable. Next thing you'll tell me is they want to screw ALL THE TIME.

I had this when I was teenager, my father cured my with BackhandiaTM. Just a few simple applications of BackhandiaTM to my mouthy, petulant, immature ass taught me to control my anger, act with maturity and respect. BackhandiaTMa is for external use only, and is recommended for all children above thirteen. Side of effects of BackhandiaTMa include ringing ears, minor swelling and reddening of the skin and crying. Only you can decide to BackhandiaTM is right for you, but with your shiatty kid, it probably would do a world of good.

I seemed to have picked up an extra vowel in that post, probably a latent side effect of the drug.

My father never punished me. instead we would just go and do some martial arts training everytime I did something rude and/or stupid. Its not abuse if you frame it around the martial arts. After back talking a lady in church we went and trained throws and breakfalls for an hour. Prior to that lesson i didnt know so much about falling. It worked on me and it will work on my nephew/nice/children when the time comes.

Having dealt with an awful temper my entire life, I don't think anything beyond strong parenting and hard work is needed to get past this sort of thing. I was a real tool as a teen, and now I'm slightly less of one, but at least I don't flip out and punch people now.

Just another bullsh*t excuse for people to not be responsible for their own actions.

I have an almost 5 year old and have the same plan for when he's older. "I'm not punishing him - we're training."

Sounds like......being 15-19 years old. Before I was yelling at kids to get off my lawn, my dad applied 'The Belt'. It immediately stopped the behavior, and you didn't need to wait 8 hours to apply another dose.

If they want to behave like brats, treat them like brats: throw them on the grill and leave them there until they become more palatable.

The "instant gratification" generation does not understand that anger is hot, but revenge is a dish best served cold.

I am not so sure this is complete balogna. I was an angry and violent kid that dealt with bursts of energy and emotion with rough housing and bike rides and setting paper airplanes on fire. How much outside time to young people get to just play? To goof off in uncontrolled enviroments? It seems to me that the reason these youngsters (boys especially) are running into this problem is because we are so over protective that we stunt their development somewhat and remove natural coping and venting.
I have for a long time felt that medication was a bad answer- but we cannot discount that this new world we live in isnt breaking us in new ways.

Christ I miss setting paper airplanes on fire.

There's also the simple question - at what are these kids getting angry/frustrated? There are legitimate causes and expressions of anger, and there are unacceptable ones. Does IED account for any of that?

Because I flew into a rage or two during my teenage years (and one in college). I'd say they were all justified and I physically hurt no one (other than another kid I choked senior year of HS, but he walked away from that) though I did break a garbage can and dent a wall (and hurt the shiat out of my hands).

There's "prone to anger" and there's "Katie Kaboom". Which are we talking about here?
