Violence in Troubled Teenage Boys
Troubled teenage boys often struggle controlling their anger, causing them to resort to violence. In our society today, mainstream media, such as TV shows, music, video games, internet sites, etc., often glamorizes violence. This often causes adolescents to believe that violence is acceptable, which leads to a number of issues in their lives. At Cedar Ridge Academy, we address all of the issues that troubled teenagers face, including anger management. Please give us a call today if you have any questions or concerns at 866-471-6629.
When troubled teens act out in anger, it usually means they are covering up some other emotion, such as depression, embarrassment, anxiety, or frustration. In the adolescent stage, boys are experiencing an entirely new range of emotions that they may not be used to dealing with. This can cause them to act out violently, placing themselves and others in danger. It is critical to teach teenage boys how to manage their emotions in an effective manner to prevent these episodes of anger from occurring.
Cedar Ridge Academy helps teenage boys manage their anger
At Cedar Ridge Academy, we are a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teens. We offer a unique, effective combination of therapy programs to help our students overcome whatever issues they are struggling with, such as anger management.
Through our karate therapy program, students are able to learn how to effectively take out their frustrations through physical activity. The philosophy of our program can be summarized in the dojo Kun, which is a universal meditation that our students recite after each training session. This helps foster an atmosphere of respect by teaching our students to seek perfection of character, be faithful, endeavor to excel, respect others, and refrain from violent behavior.
Regular exercise has enormous benefits for adolescents, such as improving their self-esteem and confidence. This helps them immensely when it comes to managing their emotions, helping them correct their violent behaviors. We also offer an exceptional academic program, helping our students get back on track in their studies with a number of fully-accredited courses available. Please do not hesitate to give us a call at 866-471-6629 if you have any questions regarding our program here at Cedar Ridge Academy.
