Troubled Teens in Jail: What are you really resolving?

Jail will not resolve your teen's issues.

There are parents that believe that their teenager needs to be taught a lesson – learn to appreciate what they have, understand that respect is expected not a choice.

However what many parents, in their time of anger and frustration, don’t realize is that their teen isn’t happy with themselves either.  They are crying out for help with their negative behavior.

Seeking a scared straight program or even a boot camp can be more damage than parents realize.  You are taking a broken child and beating them down even more (emotionally – if not psychically).

Is your teen using drugs?  Smoking pot?  Suspended or expelled from school?  Failing? Hanging with a new group of kids that are not on their way to a bright future?

Don’t be a parent in denial but don’t make rash choices.  Having your teen arrested may end up doing more than teaching him/her a lesson.  Who will they meet in juvie?  What will this accomplish?

There are options.  Take your time – do your research.  Visit www.TeenHelpAdvice.com – and get answers!
