Rebellious behavior

Re.bell.ious \ be.hav.ior


Rebellious behavior is an action demonstrated by an individual who chooses to disobey any and all sorts of established authority, no matter how negatively these actions may affect their life.

An individual who displays rebellious behavior fights and resists any authority they feel is oppressing them. These individuals feel justified and righteous in their fight against authority, despite any palpable evidence that suggests otherwise. For instance, a troubled teen may feel as though they are justified in disobeying rules set forth by their parents. A troubled teen may feel as though their parents' rules are too strict, unfair and perhaps even, inhumane. Consequently, the teen feels justified in rebelling against his or her parents, and disregards their rules altogether. While the teen may feel as though their parents are 'oppressive' and cruel,' they fail to realize that these rules are structured boundaries established to ensure their safety.

A troubled teen who's rebellious behaviors are unprovoked, or have become uncontrollable and self-destructive, can find the stable, therapeutic and self-improving treatment they require at a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teens.

Therapeutic boarding schools, also known as boarding schools for troubled teens, are a specialized treatment option for troubled teenage boys and girls. Therapeutic boarding schools are used to provide therapeutic and behavioral treatment to teenage children who are displaying out of control, self-destructive behaviors at home. These specialized boarding schools offer therapeutic care to troubled teens who are in desperate need of correcting troublesome behaviors, behaviors that stem from psychological maladies within the individual child.

Therapeutic boarding schools share many similarities to traditional boarding schools. For example, therapeutic boarding schools require students to live on campus for 9-12 months out of the year, and also offer year long academics. However, therapeutic boarding schools differ from traditional boarding schools by extending therapeutic and behavioral treatment in hopes of restoring the lives of troubled teens. Therapeutic boarding schools incorporate therapy into their curriculum in order to promote behavioral, emotional and psychological within troubled boys and girls

Therapeutic boarding schools are widely considered to be the teenage equivalent of residential treatment centers. As some feel as though there is a difference between the two (residential treatment centers for troubled teens) the two terms is mostly just a personal preference of the individual treatment facility.
