“Studies have shown that many children and teenagers with ADHD are not aware of being overly angry, or, if they are aware, they are unable to identify the origin of their anger. In the uncovering phase of treatment, they begin to identify major disappointments in their lives and the anger associated with the hurts they experienced.”
Parents play an important role in helping children with ADHD learn how to understand and to resolve their anger. They are encouraged to teach children about how virtues can diminish anger, especially forgiveness, through participation in family therapy sessions, through and through reading. Clinical studies have found a child’s learning how to understand and use of the virtue of forgiveness is very effective in the mastery of excessive anger.
