Ask Shannon: How can I convince him to take anger management classes?
Ask Shannon: My son is in desperate need of help, how can I convince him to take anger management classes?
Answer: We often do not seek help until the pain become to great. Obviously your son’s anger has not brought him to the point in which he is hurting enough. As a parent we never want to see our children suffer for their mistakes. You may be able to encourage your son to seek help by applying a bit of pressure. You may make his allowance, driving privileges, etc. contingent on him going to class. If he is older you may even limit his contact with yourself or family until he chooses to get help. Sometime drastics change takes drastic measures.
