When To Seek Help
There are many times when we can seek outside help to give us insight into a family situation. Sitting down with a counselor could be an option if you feel a situation with your teen may be getting out of control or simply more then you can handle. A counselor can help a parent and/or teen in dealing with rebellion. It doesn’t have to go that far, however, to need a little outside perspective. A counselor can help a parent by giving them an objective opinion of the situation. It may just be that there needs to be a few simple tweaks in the parenting plan.
Residential care is another option for a teen who needs to take some time out of his/her old environment and get back to making better choices and forming better habits. There are many different options as far as residential care goes. Feel free to check out Sheridan House’s website for more on our residential program and counseling center at www.shfm.org or call our main office line during work hours for help or referrals.
