What is a troubled teen?
Many things come to mind when describing a "Troubled Teen": defiant, disrespectful,
dishonest, disobedient, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, bad grades, expelled, runaway,
depression, suicide, ADD, ADHD, ODD, etc. All of these describe characteristics
or problems certain teenagers may have. Sometimes it may take only one of these
bigger problems for a parent to say they have a troubled teen, other times it may
take many separate problems for a parent to determine their teen is troubled.
A simpler definition of troubled teen may be concluded by answering this question,
"If the teen continues on their current path, will they be successful in life? Or
will they end up suffering from bad health, incarceration or even death?"
Do I Need To Get Help For My Teen?
If you are worried about your teen's future and the problems they are having,
you need to find help for your teen. If the problem(s) with your teen have just
begun, you should not jump to the conclusion that your teen needs to be sent away
to get help. You should confront them immediately and try to work the problem(s) out.
However, if your teen's problems have been ongoing and they refuse to obey you as a
parent, you should find help A.S.A.P. If you don't help your teen now, the problems
will only get worse.
Options for Troubled Teens
Many parents first turn to counseling for their teen. We feel this is almost a waist
of time because the success rate is very low. Some parents also turn to military schools.
We feel military schools would be a good choice, but the problem is that most traditional
military schools will not accept a teenager that is not willing to be there. Or they
will kick a teen out for breaking rules and they will keep the tuition you paid them.
