A program to prevent kids from dropping out of school is now available in Canada.
Reconnecting Youth is a U.S. program that helps kids gain self-esteem and cope with their emotions.
The Canadian program adds something more. It helps kids to see how anger can rule their lives.
The Canadian program is taught by social workers, who have training to help kids deal with anger that may be holding them back.
Many teens who are angry may also skip classes, insult teachers and even drop out of school, says Ed Schild, a spokesperson for the Reconnecting Youth program.
Reconnecting Youth has been a pilot project at R.H. King Academy in Toronto for the past two years.
