It may seem simplistic to say parents, teachers & community members must be
more actively involved, but that is the primary thing I've seen & heard in
counseling with disturbed kids. They do not feel heard. They do not feel
valued. They do not feel respected for who they are & what their skills
are. They do not feel "connected" or loved. I've heard alot in the news
about putting in more police, peer teams etc. Most of those efforts are
after the fact. We talk to our kids AFTER they've done something wrong. By
then, while these efforts may be helpful, the problem has already gone too
far.
