When do I know that my child needs a program for troubled youth in Kalamazoo, MI?

If your child becomes more secretive, and it seems like more than a desire for greater privacy (he or she is sneaking out, skipping classes, hanging out with new "negative" friends) there might problematic issues below the surface. Our recommendation is that you look deeper. If your teen has regular, sudden outbursts of anger that are clearly unreasonable and out of proportion to whatever has caused the anger, there might be drug use or addiction that you don't know about.  Perhaps what you are witnessing is just the tip of the iceberg.  Parents, if you are frieghtened, worried, concerned, and confused then perhaps you would benefit from counsel from a Family Advocate.  A Family Advocate will assess the situation and then coach you through your options.  Call 866-452-6321.

If your child regularly misses curfew, does not show up when expected, and lies about his or her whereabouts (is not where you expected them to be if you check up on them) you might have a tiger by the tail. If your teenager has suddenly changed his or her peer group and hasn't made an effort to let you meet these new friends. If the new group has led to a distinct change in appearance (clothing, jewelry) and change in attitude (more sullen, defiant, hostile), perhaps you need to remove your child from the group before things get worse.

In your adolescent has stolen money from your purse on regular occasions... if your adolescent has extreme mood swings, going from depression to elation, and seems to sleep a lot more than usual at times... if your child comes home with red and swollen glassey eyes, smelling like alcohol or pot... perhaps its time to make a move to change his or her environment.

Is there a therapeutic solution for troubled teens in Kalamazoo, MI?

Many programs are marketed toward the "brat" teenager (spoiled, emotionally immature, selfish, self-centered). Usually, these programs are typically accredited schools (academics is extremely important to most parents), offer therapeutic intervention and continued aftercare, and family counseling. Typically programs for youth are used as an opportunities to provide treatment and needed academic support. Programs are used by parents to rescue their child's life with the hope to get them back on track toward a powerful future.

Famous Quotes It's like this old patchwork quilt my momma used to have...Each piece on that quilt meant something. And some of those pieces were the damn ugliest things you've ever seen...But some of the pieces were so beautiful they almost hurt my eyes to look at when I was a kid...That's the best you can hope for, Danny. That your life turns out like that patchwork quilt. That you can add some bright, sparkling pieces to the dirty, stained ones you have so far. That in the end, the bright patches might take up more space on your quilt than the dark ones. Brooke McKinley, Shades of Gray

Famous Quotes Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind. Dr. Seuss if i'm going to fuck up my life, does it really matter which way i do it?. Jodi Picoult Nothing is built on stone; All is built on sand, but we must build as if the sand were stone. Jorge Luis Borges
