More details would be helpful, and you could try counseling.

 What type of anger issues?  Does he get violent, or loud?  What triggers them?  Nothing, or getting in trouble, questioned?

i have a teen with anger issues, cousouling would be the best (i know i spelled that horribly wrong but i havnt had coffee yet) his anger is coming from somewhere and someone. I let my teen know he is getting out of line, and i demostrate what i mean (cause sometimes teens are hard headed) i suggested to him when he gets angry at me for something to sit down, cover his face and count to ten and breathe in...if he got an attitude with me, i would get one right back to show him he isnt going to bully me..when he realized that i wasnt someone to mess with he started using my suggestion. He will get angry but when he does i take something away that is the most meaningful to him, i make rules for certain things until he adjusts his attiude for a while..so far it works.

It's hard to open up sometimes, but what does he get angry about.  Why haven't you started counseling?
