    Do you guys think this is a real issue or is it overhype or exaggeration?

    I think it's overhype, teen anger is something that has always gone on. Hell, it's what rock and roll was born from.

    I fully expect to have to fight off young testosterone factories until I'm taken down and my harem is dissolved among the victors.

    I put my fist through a wall or 2 when I was a teen, and that was a long time ago.
    Nothing new.

    When we sold my Mother's house last Summer, I noticed a dent in a door that I caused some 35 years earlier. Oops.

    Teenagers get angry and throw fits, what else is new? Was his DVD player not working that day so he tried to destroy it? What good is that kind of anger? He will have to spend even longer now to fix his DVD player - oh but wait we dont fix things anymore we just throw it out and buy new ones; and waste all the other functional parts. I've always viewed people who punched walls as idiotic. Especially when I witnessed a man punch a concrete wall and break his hand.

    The way I and most of my schoolmates were brought up strongly shunned unacceptable shows of anger. I guess this meant that most of the time we had to repress our anger and let it out in acceptable ways. My school always topped the Rugby competition (an Australian type of football).

    If a student lost his anger during class - one student once started swearing and throwing stuff - we would restrain him; and if necessary, take him outside and pin him down till he calmed down.



    Except for cases of significant mental illness, I would guess that these teen temper tantrums are a symptom of an absence of discipline and manners been imposed on children from a young age.
