Today's youth have their own problems, but sometimes the parents of these young kids make their problems their child's problem as well. This, is when the trouble can begin. Sometimes it can be the parents of the at-risky youth that's the very problem. Perhaps it's the parent that's struggling with a negative addiction or personality habit that's creating the opportunity for the young adult to act out.
Sometimes the solution is as simple as a councelor or family therapist to provide the space for everyone to be honest and forthcoming with their issues. For others, the only change that might help could be dtrastic.
