Teaching youth to handle anger and frustration
anger and frustration

Stress is a common feature of life for the young and as stress levels build, whatever the cause, so there is an increased chance of a violent emotional outburst. Frustrated youth need to know how to vent their anger in case they cannot cope with stress, yet Hong Kong people learn early in life that aggression is wrong and to show anger is to show weakness. We try to help them find the right balance, within the context of HKFYG’s parenting and outreach services.

Effective strategies for preventing and controlling the build-up of frustration and anger are needed. Young people who learn these strategies as they grow up from adolescence into early adulthood will understand their feelings and reactions better. They can acquire the perspective needed to stand back before causing damage, to themselves, to other people or their belongings. They will also learn to read danger signs in others. If we can help them, it may be possible to nip violence in the bud. Read this week’s Feature Story for some examples of how the Federation’s outreaching social work team approaches the problem.
