If you have a troubled teen, you know how heartbreaking it can feel. As a parent, you are willing to do anything to help your child, but it may seem like they don’t want your help. They may act insolent, out of control, and even aggressive toward you. There are no easy solutions for situations like these, but luckily, there are Boarding Schools for at Risk Youth.

Sending your child to a boarding school may be the best option for your child and your family. You will relieve the immense amount of pressure that a troubled teen can create in your home life. At the same time, they can get the help that they so desperately need.

If you decide to look for boarding schools for your teen, you may be surprised at how many boarding schools there are in this country. There are all kinds of boarding schools in all kinds of locations. However, before selecting a school, you will need to ask them a few questions about how their policies and procedures.

If your teen has anger issues, you will want to talk to the school about whether or not they accept extremely aggressive teens. To follow up on this issue, you may want to discuss how they handle aggressive teens. Do they offer therapy? Will they allow your teen to take depression medication or other medications as necessary? If it interests you, you may ask them if they are willing to offer natural alternatives to medication. You may also want to ask how they can ensure that your teen will be safe around other aggressive teens.

If your teen has been in legal trouble, you should ask the facility if they accept court appointed teens or teens with criminal records. Finally, to ensure the safety of your teen, you should ask the boarding school about their security protocol. Is the facility staff secured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Additionally, you should ask what the staff-to-student ratio is.
