Is your teen dealing with behavioral or emotional problems beyond the scope of what most teenagers deal with?

Every teen will have struggles, but it is your job as a parent or guardian to determine if the issues your teen is facing have reached a point where intervention is
necessary. Try not to compare your teen to others, but rather assess based on what you know of your child if they are acting in a way that is putting
themselves and/or those around them at risk.
