A troubled girl is a phrase used for a teenager who is having problems which are causing negative behaviors. These problems, attitudes and actions are above and beyond the typical or normal issues that all adolescents face and may even be detrimental to themselves or those around them. They could also be the inability to deal with the normal issues teenagers face.
They can be anything like abusive relationships or unsafe neighborhoods to environment issues, and physical issues to mental health issues.

It is normal for teenagers to want to feel independent. But, it is not typical for them to act out in dangerous extremes. If your teenage girl is creating self-destructive situations, you cannot afford not to intervene. You should not wait until your child is in a perilous situation before you do something about it. Sometimes you must do things your child will not understand. Remember: you are a parent, not a pal. Your responsibility is to ensure the safety and well-being of your child. Intervening in a dangerous situation might make your child dislike you, but it will also save her life.
At Trinity Teen Solutions, we offer excellent facilities and comprehensive programs that can help troubled girls cope with a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems. To speak to our Admissions counselor and learn more, call 307-202-8400 today.
