International Boarding School...It's all about relationships!

By Stephen C. Schultz


When teenagers start to struggle, the first thing to go are the relationships they have with parents, teachers, church leaders and other responsible adults in their lives. They tend to push those people away who really care the most.


Teens will gravitate toward "friends" who they think "understand" them. They will often seek comfort, attention, entertainment and excitement from those who also rationalize their attitudes and behavior. There tends to be "Group Think" and a false sense of emotional security when teens are "Hanging" with like minded teens.

Check out this short, fast paced video that showcases troubled teens working on healthy relationships at Discovery Academy...

Awesome! I loved the video :D Definitely looks like a great part of the program. It seems to me that self esteem, participation, fun etc. are all elements of this program - And elements we all need to be healthy. Thanks for sharing!
