Some youth seem to stay within their comfort zones. They pick and choose which of life's challenges they will take on believing those challenges are preparing them for life. In many cases however, these are just stepping stones to the real challenges. Parents want their teens to be prepared for the obstacles they are going to face in life. A proven, effective rites of passage model of therapy will give them the wakeup call they need to set them on the right track. The wilderness provides the perfect venue to face some of life's basic challenges; finding shelter, water, navigating, making fire and preparing meals. Making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, making the right choices and taking responsibility for those choices will assist an individual to deal with the many challenges ahead.
Learning how to deal with the successes and failures associated with life's challenges will make these youth emotionally stronger. Many parents understand the emotional concerns with youth aren't always about school and social issues; it's about facing the many obstacles of daily life ahead of them.
