Throughout the teenage years, your child will interact with a wide variety of people, settings and emotions. In some situations, personal conflict may result in violence or injury.
As a parent, guardian or authority figure, it’s important to help your teen learn to deal with emotions without using violence. Preventive methods include learning nonviolent methods to control anger and developing more efficient problem-solving skills.
Demonstrate to your teen through your own words and actions that violence is never an acceptable form of behavior. This is essential to your teen’s growth into a responsible, level-headed young adult.
