Does Bi-polar run in the family on either side? My son now 24 was diagnosed in elementary school as ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Until the age of 14 in middle school he was diagnosed w/ Bipolar. Come to find out my ex husband was bipolar and so were other members of his family. I would have your son evaluated w/ a child psychologist. I faced a lot of issues w/ school wanting to punish my son for behavior/anger issues before we new he was bipolar. I am no doctor but have spent the last 24 years trying to help and protect him. I am happy to say he is now married and expecting a child of his own. Just know whatever the problem or solution there is hope. I hope this helps. Then again it may not be ADHD or Bipolar. Only a professional doctor or child psychologist can answer this for you. Good Luck and God Bless you and your son.

Work on finding out what triggers his anger, and then try to develop some strategies for him to use to better express himself. I have anger issues myself, so I do know what it's like to fly off the handle and have no sense of how to solve the problem because I'm so worked up. Some things I've come to learn about anger recently are that it's a completely normal human emotion, and expressing it is also normal. It's your body telling you that something's not right and you need to find a solution. The big problem with anger, however, is that if a person doesn't know how to express it in a way that will help them solve the problem, the anger only escalates and gets much worse. And I'm betting your son feels pretty bad about himself when he does lose control, so that only makes him feel more anger and perpetuates the cycle further. You might consider talking to a counselor to get some advice on strategies for coping with anger.
