Holidays are a great time to send your troubled teen at a boys’ ranch a package from home. So, for this St. Patrick’s Day, consider these ideas so you can bring the holiday to your troubled son at a boys’ ranch.
Check The Boys’ Ranch Package Guidelines
As your troubled teen son receives the help he needs in at the boys’ ranch he is attending, you would not want to do anything which can put that progress back. To ensure nothing inadvertently derails your son, be sure to review any package guidelines your son’s boys’ ranch may have in place.
Focus On The Positive For Your Teen This St. Patrick’s Day
From cute leprechauns and shamrocks when your son was a child, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day can take a negative sharp turn as your son ages. Many teens are caught by police every year engaging in underage drinking on this holiday. As you son is at a boys’ ranch for St. Patrick’s Day, you can avoid that particular parental scare easily and help keep his mind focused on more positive holiday messages.
This particular technique can also be applied to other holidays, both major and minor, to help bolster the positive habits and behaviors your troubled teen boy is learning.
