Many families in today’s culture are searching for the latest medication or therapeutic tool that will get their kid under control.
Today, I want to provide a practical therapeutic tool your teen will love. However, I must first address one of the root causes to why parents are seeking therapy in the first place.
There are way too many parents, these days, using electronic babysitters. I’m talking about video games, cell phones, TV and other forms of digital technology.
A good option for families that have yet to own a pet, would be to acquire one. Since the beginning of time, pets have been therapeutic friends to kids from around the world–particularly man’s best friend–dogs. They won’t snub you to check their emails or answer their cell phones; and, the responsibility Junior gains by caring for a pet will be another bonus for having one. Every moment a pet brings joy to the real world is a moment your child’s heart and mind isn’t tainted by the virtual world.
