Parenting a troubled teenager can be overwhelming for you and your family.The first step toward understanding a troubled teen is to carefully analyze behavior. What happens right before the behavior, what happens during the behavior and the consequences of the behavior. When you understand the observable process of specific troubled teen behaviors, you can begin targeting the unwanted behaviors.However, it is important to remember that if troubled teen behavior appears to be the result of something beyond “normal” troubles, professional help may be needed. And even when you are getting professional help for your troubled teen, it is important to remember to create a supportive home, as well as one where rules are obeyed.For professional help we recommend Sunset Bay Academy for your troubled teen.
