Rethinking the teen boot camp approach
Caring for a teen with significant behavioral issues can be exhausting, pushing you to your breaking point. In fact, it might stress you out so much that placing your child in a teen boot camp may seem like an appealing option.
These programs, however, which are known for their rigid, military-style methods, aren’t equipped to treat adolescents with significant mental health challenges. This is where most teen boot camps fall short, relying on aggressive psychological tactics more appropriate for battlefields than for therapeutic environments. These tactics can even make mental health conditions worse.
If you don’t want to settle for such an unsatisfactory treatment approach, consider a program that addresses the root causes of children’s behavioral problems. Boot camps generally lack this level of intervention.
