Dramatic Teens

Teenagers who try to involve drama in their lives don’t always realize how much they are overcomplicating everything.  Sometimes they do it because they get bored with their regular lives and think it will be fun to add some spice to things.  For most young people, it is an issue of attention.  They believe things will be more interesting if they go looking for problems, and people will notice and pay extra attention to them.  However, this is not a good way to add excitement.  The most common ways adolescents try to add some thrill to things is through picking fights with their friends or other schoolmates, misbehaving or ignoring their parents just for the sake of it, trying to steal another person’s boyfriend or girlfriend, starting rumors about themselves and others, or manufacturing other kinds of crises.  It’s very easy for young people to get in too deep, though, and create real problems that aren’t so innocent anymore.

Getting the Right Help

Instilling in your son or daughter a sense of self-esteem and confidence can help them realize they don’t need to be dramatic.  Cedar Ridge Academy has the tools to achieve this, and at the same time teach students the communication and relationships skills they need to get into fewer issues have more problem-free relationships.
