Rebellious behavior is when an individual defies authority for no given reason. It is a very common characteristic among teens when the parents don’t give their adolescent/child the attention they need, and in some cases, because of peers. For example, a child who refuses to clean up their room is displaying a form of rebellious behavior. This type of rebellious behavior, although annoying and aggravating, is very common and should not concern the parents that much. However, a child who destroys property is displaying an uncommon form of rebellious behaviors, which should raise much concern in parents. This behavior can progress further into an out of control state if not properly treated.
Teens who display out of control, rebellious behaviors, are also known as, troubled/struggling teens. When a teen becomes troubled, it is important for parents to immediately seek treatment for their child, through a form of therapy. Without the proper treatment, a troubled teen’s negative behaviors can lead to life threatening choices and furthermore can destroy the individual’s life. For parents of troubled teens with out of control behaviors, a residential treatment center might be the best option to consider.
