Hi @Mimi80 

Thank you for sharing a bit about your situation with us. It sounds like it has been a difficult time trying to support your son to manage his anger lately. I am sorry to hear that this makes you feel like a bad mother at times. From reading your post I get the sense that you are a very caring parent who is trying their best to understand why your son might be behaving this way, so that you can support him the best you can.

I thought it might be helpful to share some articles we have on managing teenagers' anger. We have info on teens and anger here, and there are tips for managing anger here, here and here

We also had a professional answer a question about anger management, which you can read here. You might find some more helpful tips there. 

Please bear in mind when accessing these resources that we are an Australian-based organisation, so the resources may not be the best for international members. 

Supporting someone who has anger outbursts can be really difficult and exhausting. Have you got any support for yourself at the moment? Such as a friend, family member or counsellor who you can speak things through with? 

Please don't forget to take care of your own well-being during this time Smiley Happy
