Parenting Guide to Teen Help
  • Implement a strict behavior management program in your home
  • Try using behavior contracts with your teen
  • Consider professional counseling and therapy
  • Residential treatment is an option for teens that need more intensive therapy
  • Boot Camps, boarding schools, or Wilderness Camps offer a very highly structured environment that focuses primarily on discipline
  • Hospitalization or Jail is the measure of last resort. Consider using these options if your teen has demonstrated that he is a danger to himself or to others
