Hi, I have an almost 11-year old daughter who has been having terrible anger management issues for the last five years. Once she gets to the point of no return, she argues and shouts for about 45 minutes and gets herself so angry that nobody can calm her down. Only once she's calmed down, does she realise that her behaviour was wrong. Anyone with the same issues?

Shame Rebecca, very stressful indeed. I really hope there's light at the end of the tunnel for us and other parents going through the same thing. Kind regards and best wishes for your appointment.

I feel your pain. I have a 9 yr old son with the same issues. Very short tempered and when he gets upset there's no calming him down. He throws things and screams so loud I'm surprised my neighbors have called DSS. And when he's in this mood it's like he can hear nothing you say to try to calm him down. He's a very stressful child and after today's 5 episodes and me missing work I finally called his dr and refused to hang up til I got help. Im now waiting on the drs referral to call for his appt. with a child pschologist. My husband and I have 4 boys and all the stress is having us talk about divorce.
