As teenagers begin to assert their independence and find their own identity, many experience behavioral changes that can seem unpredictable to parents. Your teen can engage in troublesome activities that can make you wonder if it is a normal way of growing up or if can lead to future poor choices. Bottom line, it is important to address concerns and deal with them when things feel “off.”
SIGNS OF A TROUBLED TEEN:
*STEALING *SKIPPING SCHOOL *EXCESSIVE OUTBURSTS *SECRETIVE BEHAVIOR *PROMISICUITY
Although these signs just the start, being aware or involved in a child’s life daily will help detect these signs sooner. Counseling is always an option to find out how or what may have caused such behaviors.
Leaving the behavior untreated can cause problems beyond the teen stage.
