I agree that we should no longer sit around without dealing with a childs disturbing behavior. if they need help, we should get it done. One program that is becoming more and more popular for troubled teens is the wilderness therapy. I found a site that has some positive feedback from parents and teens that have been through the program. troubledteen
This should be something that parents look into. Getting their teens away from any bad influences while being in nature where they are being challenged daily is a great idea

I agree with what has been written so far. A teen left unchecked is not only no fun to be around, they are more than likely in danger. Few parents realize what activities their kids engage in when they are away from home. Many teens live dual identities, one at home, and one away from home. The irritable disrespect is what the parents get when they are around the teen. Some of these youth, are actually relieved when they are placed in a boarding school or boot camp. It is better to get help a little early than a little too late.
