Your Son is Running Out of Options

Does this sound like your son?

  • Poor grades even though he’s pretty smart
  • Disengaged and apathetic about school
  • Anger at home – but seems to handle it okay in other settings
  • Low work ethic
  • Abuse of technology – (Video game addiction, porn use, screen addiction)
  • Psychiatric Struggles – Depression, ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Mood Discorders,Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD)
  • Poor social skills
  • Low self-immage
  • Entitled attitude – feels he deserves or is “owed” stuff but now willing to put in effort

Have you tried these things to help?

  • Switching schools
  • Counselors
  • Taking away technology
  • Lectures, pleading
  • Tutors
  • Mentors
  • Vacations

There are few things more frustrating than trying to help someone who doesn’t want help. He doesn’t see any reason to change his behavior because it isn’t causing enough pain and frustration now.

But if he doesn’t get help. . . then he’s going to experience a very challenging life.  He is unlikely to complete high-school let alone be able to get of hold a job.  It is unlikely that he will have the opportunities that you want for him.  He will struggle.

He needs more help than you can offer. . . and it isn’t too late.

Our six-month Therapeutic Boarding Program for Boys will partner with you to get your son back on course.
