When your teen acts out, it can disrupt the entire ecosystem of your home. But it can often be difficult to determine why our teens are behaving badly. If your teen is disrespectful, abusing substances of any kind, or being secretive and avoidant, these may all be signs that it is time to seek help to identify their needs and reassess their behaviour.
Venture Academy can create a customized program for your teen so that they emerge from treatment with a fresh and healthy perspective on life.
Teen Stressors and Changes in Behaviour
The teen years are tough to navigate for so many reasons, but some changes may contribute to personality problems or lacking coping mechanisms that shadow them through their lives. Some of the root causes that may be changing your teen’s behaviour include:
- Teens may feel out of control due simply to stress, peer pressure, or hormones. The teen years have so many new types of relationships, physical changes, and obligations to navigate.
- Teens tend to move toward autonomy as they detach from the family structure. This is important for building new and lasting relationships. This is a positive change, but a change nonetheless.
- Teens are experiencing new methods of expression in friends’ households and relationships outside of the home. This may cause them to re-evaluate the values they have been taught.
- Major hormonal changes occur during the teen years that can sometimes reveal severe issues such as mental illness or learning disabilities such as ADHD, depression, or dyslexia.
- Teens today have the added pressure of social media, which can undermine their sense of self and even become an addiction.
The experienced professionals and individualised treatment at Venture Academy can help you to root through the possible causes of your teen’s distress so that you can get them back on track.
