It’s challenging to know how to parent difficult teens. If you’re wondering, “how do I successfully raise a teenager?”, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there are many resources available for you and your family.
Caribbean Mountain Academy (CMA) works hard to keep tuition costs low for our therapeutic boarding school in order to allow more families access to the help their teen needs.
CMA has been able to maintain a lower tuition rate by offering this program in the Dominican Republic where the cost of living is less than the United States. Also, generous gifts from individual donors and churches allow program rates to remain low.
While you are seeking out solutions for your teen who may be struggling, it can be overwhelming to read through different types of treatment options and understand what they really mean.
There are many ways to help troubled teens or teens who are struggling regain control over their behavior and their lives. Some are more effective than others. Anyone who has worked with teenagers knows that approaches such as punishing them or placing them in a boot camp-type environment do little to promote positive, long-term changes.
Every year Caribbean Mountain Academy (CMA) takes students on a hiking trip up Pico Duarte, the Caribbean’s highest mountain. Like the mountainous terrain, students experience ups and downs along the way, There are frustrations, aches, and frigid nights, but there is also conversations, growth, and deepened relationships.
Does your son or daughter struggle behaviorally or emotionally? Does he or she struggle to focus on tasks in school, or follow even basic instructions at times? Are they disruptive to the home, depressed, or anxious? Your family might benefit from seeking help from a Christian therapeutic boarding school like Caribbean Mountain Academy.
The decision to send your son or daughter to a residential treatment center or a therapeutic boarding school is extremely difficult and can be full of mixed emotions. However, it can also be one of the most loving decisions you make for your teen if it helps redirect them towards success and healthy relationships.
Former Caribbean Mountain Academy (CMA) student, Kaylee, explains how CMA made a difference in her life.
Conflict in the family is one of the most destructive factors in health and quality of life. It is crucial, especially when dealing with defiant teenage years, that parents make an effort to stay on top of their own health and have some strategies for self-care in their toolbox.
