My daughter has extreme anxiety, and music is the only thing that can calm her down. I was the same way when I was pregnant with her, and I know that music (the right kind) will always have a calming effect on her and her emotions. When we are both upset or arguing (after all who doesn’t argue with teenagers) I tell her to take a walk or go up to her room and listen to music on her phone – and within an hour (or sometimes minutes) she comes down to apologize, and she’s a completely different person.
Music is an amazing healer – you need to try it for yourself!
