What to do when teen keeps acting up and suspended from school? Topic: What is case method training

Question: My friends teen daughter has been acting up a lot. He doesn't know what to do because he has tried a lot of things and nothing has worked. She doesn't want to open up to him about anything and her behavior is bad with all adults. Is there a program in NYC that can help her? Any suggestions?

Dial 211 and ask them what is available in your area. My brother had a troubled teen boy; he had to put him in a school for wayward boys. He was in from age 14 to age 18. He hates his father for it, but he had no choice. I saw the way my brothers behavior caused his son to act out, in the end the boy had to pay the cost. Sometimes fathers can be jerks. The think they have to be the heavy hand of everything. Really, when you consider what the bible says about discipline (don't worry, not gonna get all preachy); look for the boy with discipline that when he grows old he will not turn aside from it. But he that does spare the rod spoils the boy. What that means is that discipline is a must. But too many people think that the rod stands for whacking the heck out of the kid. Consider that a shepherd guided his flock with a rod or staff. He never beat the sheep but used it to guide them in the right way. Children are the same way. Beat them and you will scatter them. Guaranteed. Rather, it takes patience and discipline (training) to raise a child. I had my hands full with my oldest girl. I learned a lot about how to guide and discipline her (and her sisters - got better with experience). In time any parent - if they are willing to LEARN can become a teacher of children. That's what we all must become. Your friend may be at a point of no return. However, in case he isn't, I hope he tries a different approach. Parenting classes can help too. There's lots of people out there saying "Don't beat the child" - and I somewhat agree. There are better methods of training; only should a spanking be a last resort. Even then it shouldn't be done in anger. Sorry, but I have to think it's not the child's fault. I've seen this sort of thing before. But try 211 and ask them what resources are available. Today there are so many children who have been trouble that there may be a waiting list to get him into a program. [shaking his head he says] Good luck. "/

For now focus on growing as an actor rather then a professional career. Remind your Mom that acting/theater can teach you many life skills including teamwork, leadership & resilience. So keep up with the school plays. Audition for community theater. Join (or start) a drama club. Compete in forensic speech/drama contests. Read plays and scripts of all kinds. Take acting classes; Voice and dance lessons can be fun too. Get a job and save up money if you have to. Join other performance groups - choir, band, dance troupe or the like. Get together with friends and make your own shows. Things like that. That will show your Mom that you are serious about this and both of you can figure out if you really are passionate about the craft of acting and see if you are exceptionally outstanding. THEN you start to focus more on the business end of things and thinking about a career. If you love acting, focusing on non-professional stuff right now will give more opportunities. Good luck

You could start at an acting class right now, if your mother will let you. But bear in mind that it takes about seven years of good quality training to get to the point where you might get an agent and real auditions. So you're going to be at least 21 before you start real acting. But even if that happens, you'll still need to work an ordinary job to support yourself. Very few actors make more than a few dollars a week from acting. So for now, concentrate on your school work and get qualified for a job you could work self-employed - free-lance, which would leave you free to take whatever time off work you need for rehearsals, masterclasses, and auditions. Good luck!

Someone has to find out what is wrong. There is a reason kids act up and out, it is not for no reason at all. She wants to get past "the problem" but does not know how to do that. A patient counselor could help, but in my case it did not help me because I was too afraid to tell the counselor my father was sexually abusing me so I kept acting out refusing to admit the real problem.

Exactly why is your license suspended, and for how long?. When you move, you are supposed to notify the DMV/Secretary of State within a certain limit. Usually 30 days. Supply the information requested, and I'll attempt to assist you. Edit. I suggest that you study the rules of the road more carefully, you're heading for a revoked license. Most likely, your suspension will be extended, and you're facing some pretty stiff fines. You failed to notify the DMV/Secretary of State of your change of address, which is a violation in itself. You didn't put in a change of address form with the Post Office, so you couldn't receive any notices from the DMV. I'm not even sure if you have insurance, because they only cover valid licensed drivers. I suggest that you get to court early, and speak with the attorney handling your case. In the mean time, don't drive.

You have had a total of 6 speeding tickets and now you have another ticket for passing a school bus. If the Officer said you did it then you must have, except responsibility for your actions. While you may not be a bad person. You have to understand when you speed you put other lives at risk. When you go around a bus that has its flashers on you are putting children in danger of being killed. You say that you don't get why there is so much anger? Maybe if you don't get it, then maybe you don't deserve to have a drivers licenses, because we definitely need people who get it when they are driving around on our roads. Unfortunately there are a lot of people that don't get it, and so many innocent people die each year because of them. God bless, be a better driver when you do get your licenses returned to you as I only wish good things for you as I do for all of us.
