Struggling teens and at risk teens can be described in many ways, depending on what they are struggling with.

Is your teen struggling or at risk? Are they experiencing the bumps of puberty combined with the pressures of teen life today? There are many reasons why your child could be experiencing confusion in their young life, but it is our responsibility as parents to try to determine the cause of the inner hurt and sadness that can potentially cause negative and inappropriate behavior. Many teens will close up like a clam, but we need to keep on digging to prevent our child from sinking to a level of making bad choices. As a parent, this can be extremely difficult and may require outside help. Don’t ignore it– search for answers and find your course of action. Seeking outside assistance is nothing to be ashamed of and knowing you are not alone is comforting.

canstockphoto25821149If a teen is struggling in school with their academics, this could be a learning disability that has not been diagnosed or properly diagnosed. Your child could also be having emotional problems which distract them from school. A therapist or guidance counselor could be helpful. This can evolve from many sources including problems at home, a disagreement with a friend, or an other issue that they have been suppressing. With this, we always encourage parents to seek local adolescent therapist to evaluate the situation. Early prevention can help your child not to become a troubled teen.

At times, a child may view an issue as extreme, when in reality it is minor. It is how a child perceives the problem, in comparison to how an adult would see the same problem. Children do not have the maturity parents have which may cause a child to act out negatively due to a minor incident. We may think it is small issue, but to the teen, it is huge. This needs to be addressed before it escalates into what could be considered major trouble. Problem teens, at risk teens, struggling teens, troubled teens, depressed teens, angry teens, difficult teens, and/or violent teens all need proactive parents to seek help sooner rather than later.
