It is normal to feel overwhelmed, desperate, and lost right now.
At this point, you tried bargaining, screaming, begging, pleading, therapy, and in some cases, even medication.

The behavior of an out-of-control teenager affects everyone in the family. There are many programs available to help “troubled teenagers.” Each program claims to be unique.

It is normal to want to put this decision off — to want to wait, give your teenager another chance.
Instead of giving in to that thought, please take a moment to consider how many times you encouraged them to make better choices, and they chose poorly. Likewise, it is essential to think about what’s going on with your child right now. What is the level of risk?
It is true that not every teen who is belligerent and disobedient needs a program. I can help you figure out if this is the right decision for your family.
Let’s be honest, no parent wants to send their teenager away to residential treatment center or therapeutic boarding school.
However, the fact is that every day you delay making this difficult love decision, you are also delaying your child from getting healthy and dealing with the root cause of their actions. Making this love decision is difficult and it is normal to change your mind and find reasons to wait or put it off.
Worrying that your child will hate you and will never forgive you is also normal. But ultimately the answer should be yes, absolutely. This is necessary for your child to get better, you should do this… in every case. The fact is that teens who are enrolled in a troubled teen program eventually realize they needed help and are grateful their parents loved them enough to get them the best treatment for their specific situation.
You need to understand that no child wants to be in pain and whether they realize it or not, they are acting out for a reason.
Your teen wants to be happy. They want to feel better. They want to live; they don’t know how to stop the pain.
Don’t give in to that fear! Be brave! You got this! You can do this!
You can save your child’s life and secure his future!
