Considering the current condition of America’s youth, is there hope for America’s future? With our special guest it is easy to see that there is.
Today we’ll be talking with a teenager who’s been given a second chance at a better future for herself and a better vision for the future of America. In fact, God provided this second chance through the unlikely form of a Wilderness Program.
That’s right! Today’s guest, Kelsey, is a former student at Shepherds Hill Academy. She was actually a student during the time of this recording. In addition, Kelsey is on air with the Girls Next Step Program Manager, Sarah Harvey.
How Do Teens Overcome Entitlement?
A sense of entitlement is one struggle many teens have today.
They arrived on 3rd base; living under the illusion that they have just hit a triple.
Better said, they believe they deserve a trophy just for showing up.
How can parents help their teen overcome entitlement?
In today’s broadcast, through Kelsey’s perspective, we uncover possible solutions to curb entitlement.
Additional topics discussed are:
- Understanding teenage entitlement
- Kelsey’s experience with the Wilderness Program at SHA
- How structure and discipline can improve academics
- Why public schools may not be the best choice for your teen
- How parents providing tough love can be exactly what your teen wants
Believe it or not, establishing boundaries and discipline curbs entitlement with teens in your home.
Like Kelsey, and in cases with troubled teens, the hard decision of residential care may be your teen’s opportunity at a second chance.
