For the first years of life, parents are the biggest influence on the lives of children. Later into teenage years peers tend to exert more influence over teens than parents, but in the early formative years, the way parents behave and react to situations can have a lot to do with how teenagers behave and react. Many times, the origin of troubled teens begins in the home. If you have a student that you feel is spiraling downward and you don’t know what to do anymore, consider a therapeutic program. Lava Heights Academy is here for both boys and girls. Please call us for more information today at 866-452-8772.
Parental Attitudes and Troubled Teens
Family problems are never easy to overcome. Issues in families tend to fly under the radar for long periods of time until it all comes to a head. This can be very unhealthy, especially if the family is dealing with a troubled teen that already has emotional or behavioral issues that they are dealing with. Lava Heights Academy is a residential treatment center that is able to offer support to parents and therapeutic guidance to troubled teens. Creative arts therapy is an experiential component that gets troubled teens into a place where talking about their issues isn’t so hard.
Residential treatment centers can provide the most help to troubled teens who have been dealing with problems for an extended period of time. Getting troubled teens to discuss their problems can be the hardest part of recovery, but discussion is a powerful first step for many troubled teens. If you need help, consider Lava Heights Academy. For more information about our program, please give one of our Family Advocates a call today at 866-452-8772.
