What to do when you feel you have lost control of your teen?

It is often difficult for parents to keep pace with the evolving culture and the increased need for healthy communication skills, especially in children. In today’s culture, Dr. Mike Dadson understands that many parents work full-time and there is less time to engaged with their children as a result. At the same time, other parents others are over-involved. If your child is depressed, overly anxious, acting out, violent, breaking the law or overly rebellious, and you feel like you have lost control, Dr. Dadson believes, “It is time to consider counselling.”

When adjustment issues present, it can affect problems at home, at school, and in social relationships.
