You’ve probably tried everything you can think of, but it just keeps happening
I know. I’ve been there.
I have two sons and they both feel things deeply. They have both been through periods of their lives where they experienced explosive anger.
This has sometimes been abrupt outbursts of rage. There was intense screaming and crying. Often there was physical lashing out, hitting and blaming their upset on someone close; usually me.
These outbursts were triggered by something, but it was not always possible to work out what that was. Even if the trigger seemed clear, there may not have been a way to avoid it.
