Teen Phase of Life Problems
Life is full of challenges. Particularly during the teen years due to the demands of choices that must be made during this critical time period. Many teens will struggle with changes that occur during this difficult period of time in life. Unfortunately, sometimes circumstances beyond their control occur such as parent divorce, death of a family member, moving to a new city, illness, etc. lead to emotional and behavior problems. These changes can create significant challenges that can interfere with adolescent development. Family Bootcamp is a great place for gaining perspective on phase of life problems.
In a perfect world, children and teens would grow up to be happy, healthy, functioning adults. However, there are hundreds of influences that they will encounter throughout their early lives that will have an impact on their development - both in negative and positive ways. Adolescence has commonly been characterized by issues such as rebellious behavior, lying, cheating, school performance problems, negative attitudes, disobedience and disrespect, sibling rivalry, drug and alcohol abuse, pressures from peers, depression, and issues of sexuality. Too many teens use phase of life problems as an excuse to engage in the behaviors just mentioned. Teens must learn to adapt to life changes and phase of life problems in order to achieve their potential and develop into responsible young adults.
At Family Bootcamp, we help teens and their parents communicate about phase of life problems they encounter and provide valuable feedback and direction for navigating these problems.
