"I've tried everything with my kids!"
" It seems like my kids run my house!"
" Why do I have no control over my kids?"
" I think she may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol."

" His skipping school, failing grades, and poor attitude are out of control!"

 
 

These are just a few statements Jennifer has heard parents use to describe their children and teens. These kids could have depression, anxiety, ADHD, or oppositional defiance disorder. No matter what the diagnosis is or just a behavioral problem, Jennifer can help. Some teenagers rebel more than what is seen as acceptable teenage behavior. If you are concerned that your teen may be pushing boundaries, there are options and solutions that work.
