My 13 y/o son has been having anger management from his school and although I know its a good thing and very much needed, Ive found that it seems to be working the opposite way to what its supposed to. I was called into school again as he had been excluded yet again and theyve said theyre going to arrange Behavioural Therapy for him, again from school. Hes not a problem at home, I get the usual teenage stuff but nothing out of the ordinary, but at school hes like a demon. Hes disrespectful to the teachers, plays truant, refuses to do work and gets angry and swears at them, thats what hes been excluded for again. He has been given a `time out` card to use,so that if he feels himself getting angry he can have time out of the lesson to calm down instead of getting into trouble,he doesnt use it as if he gets wound up hes confrontational and wont walk away. The schools being great but theyre considering permanent exclusion because hes being disruptive and aggressive. I just wondered if anyone else has had this and if so did the anger management eventually work. Im worried that if hes like this with one lot of councelling is it going to be worse adding behavioural therapy aswell. I honestly dont know what to do for the best. There is definately a problem at school and even the school has said that but they cant get to the bottom of it,they did suggest he could have a condition (I cant remember what its called) that makes them like this with people in authority, that fills me with dread for his later years,if it is that and hes like this now,whats he going to be like in a few years? Sorry for rambling but I dont know what to do. x
