A parent should never give up on their son or daughter. No matter how far they have gone or how hopeless the situation may be, it is never too late to help your troubled teen. Parents have a unique bond with their children that cannot be replaced by any other relationship in their lifetime. There is an inherent responsibility that binds parents and children into the very depths of their hearts. I’ve heard smokers say things like I’m going to quit smoking; I’ve already done it a hundred times so I know I can do it again. The irony in their statement makes one laugh, but illustrates the point that it may take more than one time to reach your adolescent and you never know if this time is going to be the time that makes the difference.
C.A.R.E., the Center for Adolescent Recovery & Education, presents four very unique residential treatment centers to assist families in their struggle to reach their kids. C.A.R.E. is a consortium of residential treatment centers for struggling teens. For immediate assistance call 866-492-9215.
The Last Time Was The Last Time
Watching a child struggle with addictions, mental health issues, and behavioral problems can be very difficult. In some ways, you think they need tough love and want them to hit rock bottom so they can make the changes they need too. It’s conflicting to hear advice from other people saying you are enabling them or they’re never going to change, and let them go. The greatest supporter a child with have is mom and dad. No one else will love or care about them the way a parent can. No matter what, you can never give up on your son or daughter. The real answer lies in knowing what to do and what not to do.
