Helping Boys Who Can’t Focus
Attention deficit disorder and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are usually behind the problems with focusing some boys have. Researchers aren’t completely positive as to why boys can have these disorders, but some studies suggest it’s genetic. Boys have a dramatically higher likelihood of having ADD or ADHD, so if you notice that your son has problems focusing, it is an issue that should be addressed as quickly as possible. If left alone for too long, schoolwork is usually affected negatively, which can cause bad grades and hinder the ability to continue education at a good college. At Cedar Ridge Academy, we can help put an end to problems with focusing. The therapists in our individual therapy program will help uncover the best tactics for improving focus. On top of this, our challenging and enriching academic program, with a small 1:6 academic staff to student ratio, provides the individual attention required to see success in all students. As your son returns home, you will see a marked difference in his abilities and his academic achievement.
Teens Have Short-Term Thinking: Their Brains Focus on Right Now
It is commonly known that teens generally have short-term thinking and that their brains tend to focus on the “Right Now.” What this basically means is that teens are more likely to make poor decisions with little regard for their future because, they simply do not care, or at least don’t take their future into consideration when making impulsive choices.
If you are a parent of a troubled teen that struggles with making decisions due to their lack of consideration for their future, you are not alone and do not need to battle your teen’s poor decision making as if you were. The experts at Cedar Ridge Academy are here to help your troubled teen and provide caring therapeutic intervention.
The troubled teens thought process of living in the “Right Now” is a problematic one. What these teenagers don’t understand when they are skipping class and don’t see the problem with the “recreational” drugs they are indulging in, is that this careless thinking can have life long consequences. Basically, troubled teens don’t comprehend that they are making mistakes that they will eventually and inevitably pay for later in life.
What impulsive acting and thinking teens need is what troubled teen experts like to call, therapeutic intervention. This type of treatment is readily available at a number of different programs for troubled teenagers.
