Authority Problems

Has your child begun to defy authority in a way that has begun to concern you? Children do at times go against the grain, however there is a point where you need to step back from the situation and determine if this should be of real concern. Normal authority issues include behaviors that are often corrected when you reprimand them. If your child has completely ignored any type of constructive criticism and the authority problems they are having are beginning to take a toll on their life, it may be time to look into the option of an intervention.

There are some specific situations that can help you determine if your child has an authority problem, or if they are behaving with normal teen rebellion. Has your child disrespected you and shown no improvement when you have discussed the situation with them? Does your child show disrespect to outside authority figures such as teachers at school? Is there no improvement seen with any of the steps you’ve taken to correct the situation? If you can answer yes to even one of these questions it may mean that your child needs an intervention from a professional who will get them back on track.

It may not seem like a huge deal if your child is dealing with authority problems and you may even think that they will grow out of these problems eventually. The truth is that the problems are likely to get worse and they can even lead to further issues in your child’s life such as; drug addiction, dropping out of school or even running away from home. An authority problem is a real issue that needs to be addressed promptly in order to correct the situation before it does have the chance to escalate.

If you feel that your child may be in need of professional help that will help them stop defying authority and get back on the right track, you need to find a facility that is appropriate for dealing with your child’s specific issue. Here at Teen Assist, we have a full line of information on the many different programs available for your child and we can help you determine which is best for your child’s needs.
