I am a 22 year old female and I am bi-polar. I had to deal with my anger and aggression because I come from a very poor family and we could not afford any help. I have never taken any medication and I have to admit that I am fine now. You shouldn't try to load these kids up on drugs to help them with their anger. They need to to deal with it. I use to beat my brothers and kids at school up for no reason other than a release. Then I realized that it was wrong so then I started hitting on trees when I got the urge for violence. Finally I found a way to release it. I wrote poetry and I paint, sketch, draw, all sorts of things. These drugs do not help... they just postpone it. Everytime I get the urge for violence, I either sit at the computer and type what ever comes to mind or I draw. I am now happily married and I have a 10 month old son. Being bi-polar shouldn't be looked at as a problem, it should be a blessing. Most people who are bi-polar are very gifted. Instead of only using the right side
or left side of the brain, they can tap into both with ease. Try anger management classes, unless the kids are like me and decide to mess with the counselors heads... lol, boy did I have a blast in there. Don't worry about it... your kid is special. What really changed me was the birth of my son. I sat there and decided that if I was angry, I would not take it out on him and I would not punish him if he did anything wrong, because we all know how we bi-polars lose it once we are angry. I avoid anger at all cost and I take a cold shower and meditate when I am angry. Give the kids time, they will calm down on their own. They just have to learn how to deal with it and that takes time.
