A recent study reveals that two thirds of American teens have damaged property and threatened or engaged in violent behavior. These social challenges have become so common that they have been given  a name.  Read more after the jump.

 

An estimated six million young men and women between the ages of 13-17 have been diagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder. This is a syndrome characterized by ‘persistent uncontrollable anger attacks not accounted for by other mental disorders”. Sadly, only 6.5 percent of these young people will get professional help for this disorder.

What do you think? Is this disorder just a made up label for what might be just bad behavior? Are today’s generation of teenagers angrier than they were ten years ago?
