Whetstone Helps Boys with Attention Deficit Disorder
Whetstone Boys Ranch can help your pre-teen boy who struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay on task, with trouble controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can hinder your young boy’s ability to finish his work, and function successfully in society.
If your troubled boy is easily sidetracked, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one unfinished assignment to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Precise causes of ADD (also Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some links with heredity, nutrition and environment.
Because it’s so easy for young teens with ADD or ADHD to be distracted, a large percentage fail to finish high school, or don’t get the kind of grades needed to attend a good college. While your child may not completely outgrow his symptoms, he can certainly learn strategies for success, even as a teenager.
Helping Boys with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Whetstone Boys Ranch is a therapeutic Christian school that serves struggling boys (ages 12-16) and their families. Here boys live, learn, work and grow as they experience essential individual, group and family therapy–plus excellent academics, exciting outdoor adventures, and useful hands-on tasks. We believe in sharpening the character of young men to become true servant-leaders in their families and communities.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17 NIV
Since 2011, Whetstone’s purpose centers on the reconciliation of boys and their families. Whetstone treats struggles such as anger, depression, low self-esteem and trauma with a loving, systems-based approach. And this comprehensive method of treatment and restoration sets us apart.
