Adolescence can be a very trying time for both the adolescent and the parents. But just like a baby bird in the nest, who needs to learn how to fly and jumps out of the nest, so does your teenager need to take some risks in order to grow and become independent of you. This is all very normal and necessary.
However, there are some risks that are not good and can lead to all kinds of trouble.
Please check the correct check box next to the statements that apply to your teen's current behavior.
It is noteworthy to realize that all of the following behaviors are cause for parental intervention.
Low Self Esteem
Lack of motivation & direction
Defiance / Disrespect
Manipulation / Lying / Stealing
Poor choice of friends
Anger or temper outbursts
Truancy / school suspension
Drug or alcohol experimentation
Trouble with the law
If your child demonstrates one or several of the behaviors listed above, they will continue in their behavior unless there is an intervention. Their behavior will not only affect them in a negative way but it will also affect the entire family
