London: Does your child often behave violently? Beware, the teenager might be suffering from an impulse control disease called the intermittent explosive disorder (IED), psychologists have claimed. IED, recognised as an impulse control disorder, usually begins in late childhood and persists through the middle years of life. The condition is characterised by persistent and uncontrollable anger attacks. The new study from Harvard Medical School in the US was based on a survey of 10,148 young teens and it found that nearly two thirds had a history of anger attacks involving real or threatened violence. It also found that one in 12 met strict criteria for a diagnosis of IED. Across the US, that would equate to almost six million individuals, the Daily Telegraph reported. To be diagnosed with IED, a person must at any time in life have had three episodes of "grossly out of proportion" impulsive aggressiveness.
