UNDERSTANDING AUTHORITY PROBLEMS
There are an array of issues that may cause Authority Problems in teens. It may be that the teen merely struggles with a sense of entitlement, and projects that to others. However, the teen may also be struggling with ADHD, ADD, BiPolar Disorder , or any other number of issues. For example, teens struggling with intense emotional problems, crises, or events may become defiant, illogical, or otherwise problematic in their dealings with authority figures.
Coping With The Effects of Authority Problems
When teen (boardingschools-troubledteens) Authority Problems result in parents and others "walking on eggshells," and feeling intense anxiety whenever the teen is around, there is a problem. Worse, when parents become exhausted, feeling as though they've "tried everything" to get through to their teen, such troubled teens are often left to their own device, to succeed or fail. This creates a cycle of frustration, anxiety, and conflict that is doomed to intensify to the point of someone - the teen, the parent, or both - hitting a breaking point.
Diagnosing The Reprecussions of Authority Problems
Authority Problems among teens may or may not include school or work problems. A good therapist can help determine if the problem is with the teen, the teen's environment, or with an issue that is triggering inappropriate reactions. In our Therapeutic Boarding Schools our therapist will evaluate the level of issues with your teen and you will be able to address these needs in family therapy. Your teen will also have the opportunity to sit down one on one with the therapist and get to the root of the problem.
If your teen's problems with Authority have ultimately left you frustrated, and those problems are causing repeated crises and/or the danger of harm to your child, to those around him/her, or to property, it is probably time to consider the value of employing the services of a Therapeutic Boarding School for troubled teens. Such schools provide 24x7 supervision and support, therapy, and strong academic focus.
