THE IMPACT OF EARLY INTERVENTION ON TEEN VIOLENCE
On behalf of Law Office Of Scott G. Cerbin, Esq., PLLC posted in violent crimes on Saturday, February 9, 2019.
When parents in New York begin to see the changes in their children as they become teenagers, they often face intense emotions and decisions about how to protect and teach their kids without smothering them. Developing a balance and feeling confident in their children’s ability to make responsible decisions can be supported a great deal by early intervention and consistent education throughout their child’s younger years.
Youth violence affects a lot more people than many realize. Unfortunately, once a teenager engages in violent behavior once, it is not unlikely that it may happen again. In many cases, their involvement in continual violent crime may increase until they are in dangerous situations where their life is compromised. Parents that know the risks of teen violence and understand the warning signs of potentially violent behavior, can take initiative to help their children to discover alternate ways of coping with problems before the issue intensifies and becomes a dangerous threat.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention boldly proclaims that youth violence of any kind is entirely preventable. They say that early intervention and the efforts of parents to educate their children can help to put a stop to juvenile violence before it ever has the chance to begin.
Verywellfamily.com suggests that once parents voice their concerns to their teenager about violent behavior, to consider enlisting professional help for their child if they do not notice a change in his or her behavior. Therapy may be an excellent resource to help belligerent children to recognize improved ways of expressing their emotions without resorting to violence and anger.
