Adolescent child and parent conflict! How to approach the angry child in adolescence?

Irritability may occur in children due to hormonal and character changes in adolescence, which is the process from childhood to adulthood. This damages the unity of thought and love bond with the parents. Experts warn that parents should be more sensitive in this regard. How to approach the angry child in adolescence?

Puberty is a stage of maturation. This age, which is given to the process of stepping from childhood to adulthood, takes place at different ages, including girls and boys. Although the symptoms may vary, physical and mental changes are usually noticeable. The onset of puberty begins, on average, between the ages of 10-15 in boys and between the ages of 9-13 in girls. Although 95% of the researches indicate this age scale, the 5% part differs.

The biggest factor in the irritability of the adolescent child is hormones


  1. Conflict is the basis of adolescence. This happens both physiologically, spiritually and with the environment. While concrete thoughts from childhood leave their place to more abstract thoughts, their fragility begins to increase.
  2. Emotional relationships, friendship relationships and family relationships seem to have a new meaning for the adolescent who started to exhibit different perspectives and feel different emotions.
  3. One of the troublesome situations will be that the inexperienced adolescent child does not know what to do in the face of the problems that occur in this step into adulthood. They believe that they have little ability to solve problems and that they will get rid of all their troubles under the name of “popular”. With this ability, they can also put their family relationships into trouble. At this point, the factor that the family will pay attention to will be to take care as much as possible.

how to behave towards adolescents


  • Making them feel valued by their families is the first step of communication. Adolescents who do not feel valued will not hesitate to enter environments where they will feel valued. Therefore, the first thing the family should do in this period is to make them feel valued.
  • Adolescents who think they are critical of advice will not listen and will be pushed more. Finding the right communication channel and establishing the right communication is the most important thing.
  • Adolescents who cannot find a solution to their problems may become more aggressive. In this case, what the family should do would be to get him a hobby. Because the more he puts on his head, the more he will wear it and he will suffer from the mental illness we call adolescent depression.
  • He needs to feel family support at all times. At this point, the family should constantly remind the child of this and make him feel that he is with him.
  • To approach him in a way that he feels like a child will again push the individual against the outside world in a vulnerable way. The family should be expected to assign duties to him and to perform these duties.
  • Another important point is that the parents have a common view. If the mother approves something but the father does not, or if the father rejects what he approves one day, the next day, this will create distrust towards the family and the way of communication will be blocked.
