Boys homes like Future Men can help boys going through some rough times.
Boys homes for troubled boys are often the best solution if your son is acting out, defiant, or falling behind in schoolwork. Future Men offers a Christian atmosphere and a caliber of care that isn’t available at many other programs.
At Future Men, the primary aim is to help your son change his behavior. Boys come to us with all manner of issues and difficulties, so whether your son is depressed, angry, ditching school, or even getting involved with substances, we know how to help them. You’ve likely done everything within your power to give your son the chance to succeed, yet he has suddenly changed and continues to act out. Sometimes, the only solution to teen troubles is to enroll them in a home where they can learn a new way of living.
Changing problematic behaviors in your son typically requires therapy. Although there is a variety of boys homes with therapy, not all such programs include the spiritual approach. At Future Men, all counseling work and mentoring is done from a Biblical perspective, which is essential for real life-long change.
You have seen the outcome of the self-destructive way he is living his life. Frequently, boys just can’t seem to find another way to live. Often, they want to change, but don’t know how, or the influence of their peers is to strong. We can show your boy a new way.
Your son will attend five group counseling sessions on a weekly basis in this boys home. The purpose of these group sessions is to identify the behaviors that were getting them into trouble and identifying precisely how to change such attitudes. The group setting enables your son to form healthy and personal relationships with his peers and his mentors. These kinds of friendships will be entirely different from the negative peer circle you may have seen him running with back home! As they foster these relationships and support each other in their progress, their problems begin to slip away, allowing them to grow into healthy young men.
Along with therapy, your troubled son will be involved in accredited academics so he can carry on with his education and get caught up. As your son begins to experience the hope here, he will renew his interest in school, and he will develop a drive to succeed.
When your son started to give up on school, it was probably very worrisome, as a parent. He might have seemed apathetic, he wasn’t open to help, and the increasingly severe punishments he was receiving didn’t seem to affect him. This is because most traditional schools just aren’t equipped to deal with troubled boys. At Future Men, however, that is the only kind of boys we work with. We are dedicated to working with only troubled young men!
Most importantly, Future Men keeps its class size to just 15 students. All teenage boys are different and this might even be more true for troubled boys. Not only do teenagers learn differently, they have different interests and learn at different paces from each other. This is why individual attention is necessary and available to your son at this program. He will get an education that is accredited and all-inclusive, all while being individually tailored to his needs so that he can succeed. You may think your son is throwing away his future, but at Future Men, he will be able to catch up to and ever surpass his school mates.
