The structure of schools for problem teenagers
Guardians have a lot to research about schools for problem teenagers. Besides school activities, there should be extracurricular activities so they can develop a personal perspective about their emotions and learn other options of reacting to something not coming out the way they expected.
A teenager may be stubborn to change because “nothing seems to work out” or “it won’t change anything”, a school with experience with teenagers with similar problems, will have a team of professionals to help your family and teenager see another way of solving past wounds. Once something is done to be able to receive help but fails, or doesn’t last, they might lose hope. Keeping that hope up to get them into a secure mental state can be done with an integrated program.
Teens that part-take in activities such as: Been absent from home without parents’ consent, violent behavior towards their caregivers, themselves, or any person that crosses them, substance or drug abuse puts them at risk of getting involved with the juvenile justice system. So checking the option of a boarding school can be the way to come to terms with the teenager. Letting the family feel backed up by a team of teachers and psychologists that will be there for their teenager 24/7.
The key to change
At Sunset Bay Academy we give a variety of extracurricular activities so every teenager can be challenged, to see a broad diversity of ways to take part in a group or develop on their own, as a healthy activity suited to their way of expressing or managing their feelings.
Having several activities allows them to see that their actions can build their confidence and self-esteem, can nurture their self-image from the core, and into affecting positively on their personal life in the long-term, helping also their relationship with family and their community. Little by little seem they to break out of their shell. Leading up to realizing their strengths and acknowledging their limitations. It is part of a journey in which milestones can be achieved.
