Boot Camp for Teens
by Tammy T
My husband and I are writing you to ask your recommendation for a boot camp for teens. We have read countless parenting books and tried every technique out there, but we can't get control of our unruly child.
This child is a 15 year old teenager who lies, steals, and cheats at school because he refuses to study. He is unmotivated, doesn't seem to care about anything and is even unphased when we take his privileges away, which is our sorry attempt to bring some discipline into his life.
I could on and on, but I'm sure you've heard the story before and I know we are not alone in our issues with our struggling teen. We love him dearly. We are good, caring parents. We are educated and have learned everything we can to try to help our son because we realize that as miserable as he makes the lives of those around him, he's equally as miserable himself.
We know that we need to do something before it is too late. We hate to resort to this ebecause we don't want to make our son somebody else's problem and because we truly want to help him on our own, but we feel defeated and unqualified, so can you please recommend a boot camp for teens
or some other alternative.
