More immediately, anger can manifest in tense family relations and sometimes even run-ins with the legal system. But even if anger is “only” affecting day-to-day relationships, when it is experienced by adolescents it is important to deal with it properly, caringly, and thoroughly as they are still maturing and their view of the world is limited.
