Teens In Crisis

Things can happen pretty quickly when you discover that your teen has been making negative choices. Before you know it you have teen in crisis. Teen crisis’ can range from anything like poor grades, to ending up in the juvenile detention system. Parents will inevitably ask themselves what they could have done to head the crisis off. There are signs along the way that may be subtle but they are signs none the less. One of the first signals along the way is a decrease in academic performance. The teen headed for a major crisis will usually lose interest in his school work. Another sign can be your child hanging with a new group of friends. In many cases your teens’ old friends do not want to do the new things your child may be doing. Another sign is defiance.

Many times the new friends your troubled teen has begun hanging with will empower him with thoughts that his parents can’t make him do anything. Some parents have found traces of marijuana in their child’s pockets while doing their laundry. Some have found stashes of drugs hidden in their children’s closet. Usually the troubled teen will deny that the drug is theirs and that they are just holding it for a friend. In either case the teen is teen in crisis is in denial that they are doing anything they shouldn’t.

Many teens that engage in sexual activities do not use proper birth control methods. Some because they don’t think they will ever get pregnant, and some because they don’t realize how easily they can actually become pregnant. The problems that a family faces with a pregnant teen are many. Abortion is a very controversial topic for most families while we don’t believe it is an option to consider the teen will more than likely be advised by someone to consider this option. Studies have shown that even an abortion performed by a trained medical professional can haunt the abortive mom for the rest of her life.

While it is more accepted for a pregnant teen to continue with their high school education many teen girls drop out of school rather than accept the additional responsibility of getting through this additional challenge. There are also options for young moms to finish high school and bring their baby to school. This is also more work and many young women drop out of this option as well. It is a good choice for most pregnant teens to give their child up for adoption. This option allows the mom and the baby to live relatively normal lives. This option is equally as difficult as the others the mom will need to consider. Some pregnant teens opt to become teenage moms, and try to raise the child on their own. This is a very difficult way to go but is better than the abortion choice. Very few times do teens that wed stay together long term. While this choice shows integrity on the part of both teen parents it is very difficult for two young people financially to make a go of it. With both still in high school the best they can hope for are minimum pay jobs.

Sudden Outbursts

Things seem to be going along fine and then it happens, your teen begins screaming at the top of his or her lungs at you. The troubled teen sudden outburst is a sign that your child is suffering from trials that he may not even understand. Sometimes the outburst surprises the teen himself. After things settle down and the teen has some time to reflect on what has happened it is important that the parent calmly discuss what has happened. This may be a situation where the teen does not even realize that they are stressing about something. In today’s society the youth of today are forced to worry about wars, talk about a global warming, a failing economy, and the ever present fear of an attack of nuclear proportion. It is no wonder that a troubled teen may experience a melt down accompanied by sudden outbursts. A parent or responsible adult confidante can speak with the teen and help them learn the skills necessary to deal with the daily stresses that everyone faces on a daily basis.

Sudden outbursts while seemingly insignificant are usually the sign of something going on inside the heart and mind of the troubled teen. It is important for parents to create a situation where they can communicate with their child. The teen will need to feel safe, that they are able to speak freely, in confidence, and that the parent is sincerely interested in what they have to say. Parents should repeat what their child is saying to them to help them understand that their parent is indeed listening to them. By learning to communicate effectively with your child you can become a resource for your teen to confide in.
