Good Parent, Bad Parent: How To Discipline Consistently With Troubled Teens

It can be very difficult for parents to understand how to discipline troubled teens consistently, and why it’s so important to do this. If they don’t do this, their children will think they can get away with anything, because they won’t take the consequences seriously. If your child is disrespecting your authority, not responding to your rules, and misbehaving in other ways, there are many professional treatment facilities that can work to make a life-altering change in their bad behavior.

When you believe that the time is right to seek assistance for the troubling behavior of your son or daughter, it is important to trust your intuition and go through with it. Zion Educational Systems strives to provide families with the information they need about their many options to ensure that they make the best choice, so call us today for assistance at 866-471-8579.

The Importance of Proper Discipline

The first part of being good at disciplining a young adult is making sure that you are extremely clear and firm with your rules. There should never be any wiggle room in the regulations you set. Teens like to avoid trouble, so they will find any way to work around the wording you used and make it out to seem that they didn’t do anything wrong or break any regulations. The less room for interpretation there is, the more effective the rule will be. Once these kinds of regulations have been established, consistency of consequences is the next, most crucial part. If parents slip even once and let a teen out of their punishment, they will always remember this. From then on out, they are more likely to push the boundaries, because they believe they will be able to squeeze out of the punishment their mother and father have set.
