Humans are born with a number of basic emotions, that is, God has placed in the institution of all human beings. One of the current problems and concerns in families is the issue of teenagers' anger. The behaviour of parents has a significant impact on the formation of children's personalities. For this reason, if parents cannot overcome their indulgent behaviour towards their children, they will undoubtedly face many negative consequences in the future. Anger is caused by nervous or emotional stress in teenagers.
