Parenting Troubled Teens

As parents of troubled teens it’s logical that we try to look for a reason why this has happened in our family. Why us? Why me? Understandably, you may look for someone or something to blame; whose fault is it? Maybe you blame yourself, your partner, your teenager or their friends?

Blaming yourself or others will leave you feeling guilty, angry, powerless or all three. To truly take a first step you need to take a good, hard look at the problems and the situation before you can decide what to do next.

Relate have put together some questions for you to think about. Answer as honestly as you can. Every family will be different so this may leave you with even more questions. That’s ok, this is a time to think and understand. What you do about it will come next.  Follow the link below…
