Parenting Troubled Teens
Parenting a teenager is never easy, but when your teen is violent depressed, abusing alcohol or drugs, or engaging in other reckless behaviour, it can seem overwhelming. You may feel exhausted from lying awake at night worrying about where your child is, who they're with, and what they're doing. You may despair over failed attempts to communicate, the endless fights, and the open defiance. While parenting a troubled teen can often seem like an impossible task, there are steps you can take to ease the stress and chaos at home, and help your teen transition into a happy, successful young adult.
