A teen in crisis presents a unique set of challenges to a parent. Often, their crisis can cause a crisis for you. As the song says "When something is wrong with my baby, something is wrong with me."
One of the hardest parts of parenting is knowing you can help and yet your child may not take your advice. And that's always hard and frustrating for a parent to watch.
The vision behind TeenCentral.Net is to help teens in crisis by giving them a private, anonymous place to receive sound, tested advice from professionals and to relate with their peers in a safe, professionally counselled environment.
Please understand. In order to give teens a place to speak freely, TeenCentral.Net is totally anonymous. There is nothing here to associate your child's site name with their real identity or yours. We will not, because we cannot, reveal any information gathered here.
We do hope by helping your child, we will help your circumstances. If you're feeling overwhelmed about helping your teen through a tough time or just have some questions, we can help you at KidsPeace.org or you can call us anytime at 1-800-8KID-123.
