These crises are often accompanied by rebellion, drug andalcohol abuse and dependency, poor communication, low self-esteem, disrespect for authority,lack of motivation, academic problems, and conflicts associated with divorce, death, peerpressure and the stress and strains associated with living in todays society.The ACTION Parent & Teen Support Program is a gathering of concerned parents who meet tooffer each other support and practical solutions to problems. A parent who has been trained asan ACTION group facilitator, who has experienced just how tough it is to raise a teenager in thisday and age, leads each group. And best of all ACTION attendance is free of charge.Because of our own experience in dealing with teen problems, we are able to understand andoffer suggestions that are effective. We know that you want the best for your family and werealize how important your family is to you. We also understand that trying to face theseproblems alone can be overwhelming and frightening at times.ACTION offers a safe place to talk, cry, laugh, and to discuss your teens behavior with otherswho can offer practical solutions that work.While parents are meeting, teens attend an ACTION teen group meeting. Growing up in todaysworld and making the wrong choices can sometimes be deadly. Teens are faced with pressuresand decisions that can be confusing and frustrating at best. The teen group is lead by trained,licensed and certified counselors who are experienced in working with young people. ACTIONoffers a place for teens to learn positive behaviors that will work for them. They learn skills topromote healthier and happier lifestyles. Remember there are "no" bad kids, however there arekids who "make" bad choices.
