Periodically, parents have been heard to say, “it’s not easy to raise a teenager”. How quickly some parents forget how difficult it is to be a teenager. As parents, we see the confusion on our teens faces as they try to work out issues on their own. Many teens aren’t always as forth coming with information if we ask them too many questions about what’s going on in their lives. Being attentive to what teens are not saying is just as important. In their own way, your child may be reaching out with serious behavioral or emotional issues they may be experiencing but afraid of any consequences associated with poor choices made. With understanding and compassion, your troubled youth may just open up either to you or a professional therapist. If necessary, the benefits of programs for troubled youth in Seattle may be researched.
At Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy, we have such programs.
No matter the issues your teen in experiencing, drug or alcohol use or abuse, emotional concerns such as depression or anxiety, behavioral issues such as acting out, over eating, a combination of any of these or others, Rites of Passage NW programs for troubled youth can help.
Using the environment as a therapy tool, at Rites of Passage Wilderness Therapy, your child will start off by learning and developing a mixture of hard and soft skills. They will learn more about themselves as the individuals they are. Taking responsibility for the actions of their past, present and future.
