I have a kid, well he’s 22, who thinks maybe he needs an anger management program.
All of my family have kind of bad tempers. Some with short fuses and quick explosions, some with longer fuses and a longer time till they’re back to normal. I believe I would call some of my family members rageoholics (can’t get enough of that rage-ohol).
Now what I do is tell myself that I’m going to calm down eventually so it would be better to calm down now, and it works. Although sometimes someone else has to mention it to me. Obviuosly though I am the most well balanced of all of us.
But this doesn’t work for my son. I’m wondering if it might work better if somebody else, not his mother, recommended this technique or some other.
I’ve really only ever heard of court mandated programs. And of course the movie. (Please tell me it’s not like the movie.)
I would love to hear if anybody has actually gone through an anger management program, and if it worked.
