Schools for Troubled Boys
The best schools for troubled boys exercise a philosophy that focuses on the individual boy's strengths as the foundation of treatment. Meaning, these schools build off of a boy's strengths in a positive way instead of focusing on the negative behaviors like everyone else does. Parents of troubled boys already know that their "troubled child" displays "troubled behavior". These boys have been reminded of their "problem behavior" over and over again. They have already received punishment (restriction, etc.) and punishment has not changed their behavior.
The top schools for troubled boys pose the following philosophical question, "should we continue using the same old approach to bring about 'change' when it has not worked thus far?" The top schools are willing to think outside of the box, and use "leadership" training as a new approach. Troubled boys seem to respond better to "outside of the box" thinking. Boys do better when a school focuses on their strengths as a way to work on their weaknesses. As a parent, this is something we think you should look into. It is our recommendation that you look at schools that are "outside the box", using leadership training and "strength-based" approach to treatment.
