Most people think that tough love means “kicking them out” and spoiling the relationships with teenagers. It’s not true at all. The Tough love program is designed to help parents to deal effectively with their difficult and problematic teenagers. Tough love is a loving resolution for parents that are being torn apart by unacceptable behaviors, including drug use and verbal or physical abuse. It helps parents to discipline their teens with love and respect. When parents are in crisis and don’t know how to deal with their children, tough love provides really effective and practical support. Parents serve as a role model for their children so they need to set an example they can learn from. Tough love teaches parents to deal with their teenagers on the basis of merit.
