Brief Answer:
needs to see counselor

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for your concern about your son.
It depends upon what he is able and willing to do regarding how much help you can be to him.
Sometimes when people work very hard and do not get enough rest they can become very irritable and have outburst of anger.
This is not good for their health or for their relationships with other people.
Try gently suggest to him that it may help him to talk to a counselor about stress reduction.
If he is willing to do this he may get great relief.
If he is not willing then just love him and be as supportive as you can.
That said, do not let him be abusive to you. Take care of yourself even if it means staying away from him if he is being angry toward you.
Best regards,
Dr. Robinson
