As a parent of two teenagers, I understand the challenges. They are hard to figure out. What I know to be true is this: teenagers don’t tell you how they are feeling or what is happening in their lives; they will show you through behavior, mood and changes in personality.
Therapy can be extremely effective in helping teens express themselves in healthier ways. It also can build on what you, as a parent, are already doing, as well as offer support, education and new concepts to try at home. Being a parent is hard regardless of your unique situation, and there is nothing wrong with seeking help.
