Angry Teen/Hostile Adolescents Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale AZ

Angry and hostile teenagers make the family  feel frustrated and helpless and in reality the teen feels helpless as well. Homes that provide guidance, structure, and responsibility are vital.

There is a clear difference in allowing a teenager to find his independence and to allow a teenager the freedom to do whatever he/she wants to do.
It is normal to experience anger and defiance when the parent/parents assert rules into the home.It will be easier to reintroduce rules if their is structure that is already in place in the home. It is important to be consistent as well as to schedule time to listen to your teens: thoughts, feelings, and hopes. If a teenager is not communicating with either parent this is a red flag and shows that communication needs to be worked on daily.
