The Importance of Parenting as a Team | River View
River View is a licensed residential treatment center with therapeutic programs for troubled teens. We believe the importance of parenting as a team is key in raising teens. We teach students to learn to cope with social pressures, grow in self-advocacy and mature in ways that cannot be achieved in most programs. Our combined efforts in these areas help us to consistently achieve outstanding treatment outcomes. We truly believe that every interaction with the boys girls in our care is a therapeutic chance that can help them change their behaviors from the inside out. If your child needs the help of these therapeutic services, please call 000-000-0000.
Being a parent can be a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience. It also brings challenges and hard work. Parenting as a team helps couples face these challenges in a way that lessens conflict and strengthens relationships with each other as well as with their children. Teamwork is working together and being in agreement about parenting approaches. It is also about backing each other up, so that your child doesn’t pit one of you against the other. The way that parents interact with each other has immense influence on adolescents.
Teenagers Learn from How Parents Interact as a Team
Parents have a large role to play in creating a positive environment for their teenagers. This means supporting each other, using teamwork to discuss and solve problems together. Some conflict is expected even in the strongest of relationships. Children learn from how they see their parents interact as a team. For parents, this means showing their kids that disagreements are a normal part of life, and teaching them healthy strategies for managing and resolving conflict. This is also vital to the long-term happiness and health of all relationships. Teens can manage and even learn about how to handle conflict if they see parents disagree from time to time. But they are seriously affected by angry, unresolved and frequent conflict.
There might be times when parents need more support than teamwork skills to deal with their teen’s poor behavior. Parenting a troubled teenager can be overwhelming and exhausting to say the least! It makes no difference what challenge you are facing, whether it be adolescence that escalates into troubled teenager syndrome, or challenges that the medical community have given a name to such as ADHD or ODD, sometimes parents need outside help.
If your teen is experiencing difficult enough behavior that no amount of parental teamwork can fix and you need more support, call RiverView at 000-000-0000 to speak with our Admissions Counselor.
