Why Are Young Men Mean to Each Other?

Often, when young men are mean to their peers it is indicative of an underlying condition.

If you are interested in this program or require more information, we urge you to contact us today at 866-439-8112.

Reasons A Young Man Might Be Mean To His Peers

1 - Anger problems - Young men dealing with anger problems will often lash out at their peers and those around them. This can make it seem as if young men are always mean to each other, however anger problems can be easily overcome with help. With the right treatment, young men can deal with these anger problems and learn healthier ways to relate to their peers. This will result in an overall happier life for a young man.

2 - Substance abuse - When young men are dealing with substance abuse, it can lead to anger or depression. Both of these conditions make it difficult for young men to relate to their peers in a non-confrontational way. If your son seems to be constantly fighting with others, it is important to consider the possibility that he is dealing with a substance abuse issue.

3 - Lack of confidence - When young men have a lack of self-confidence, they will often seek to overcompensate by acting mean towards those around them. This behavior is meant to cover up their perceived weakness. Beartooth Mt. Ascent could be an excellent option for dealing with this, as the ranch lifestyle is perfect for building self-confidence. While working on the ranch, young men are forced to learn new skills and rely upon themselves a great deal. This promotes confidence in a very direct way.
