My son has been attending a special boarding school for struggling
teens. He has been there for eight months and has not seemed
to "get it" about his behavior. I am worried about
his return. Do you have any advice on boys returned from boarding/reform
school and still defiant to authority?
While he is still at school, use all the resources the school
has available to you to plan for his return - counselors,
local contacts, local support groups. You may be pleasantly
surprised by his behavior when he comes home. If so, let him
know you appreciate it. Get some support for yourself in advance
of his return. One source of support may be Toughlove, a national
organization with many local chapters. Find out more by going
to their website at www.toughlove.org.
Good luck to you and your son.
