Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Bedford, New York

Is your teenager spinning out of control? Looking for a Christian boarding school for him or her near Bedford, New York?

There is nothing worse than having your teen spinning out of control, and no worse feeling than the despair parents experience in the process. It is hard to know what to do and how to react when your boy or girl daily reaches new lows in disobedience, dishonesty, and disrespect, and chooses badly.

We know, because we went through it with our son. Raised in a Christian home and mostly home-schooled until high school, we suddenly found that we didn’t know him. He had changed seemingly overnight. His academics started falling and his interest in sports and old friends shifted to a new group of friends — the kind parents are wary of — the kind of kids that got kicked out of a public school, so the local private school took them in.

Unbeknownst to us, our son was already heavy into smoking marijuana, huffing, drinking alcohol and just about everything else his new peer group dared him to do. The downward spiral was dramatic — all the way down to holes-in-the-walls rages, running away for days at a time, and finally threatening suicide. After months in counseling, the therapist proclaimed that there was nothing more he could do. He recommended a local therapeutic school where issues could be dealt with and the influence of his negative peer group could be broken.

Putting our son in a therapeutic Christian boarding school was the hardest thing we’ve ever done as parents. We learned from this traumatic experience that therapeutic programs can be quite different and need to be selected based on their strengths and avoided if they have serious weaknesses. It’s important to know what those are.

Some Christian boarding schools are good, and others are not so good. Some target one set of issues; others are experts on other issues. But talking to them, they want to fill their beds, so they’ll often present themselves as “experts in all areas” having to do with behavior. But that’s not always so. Some kids are just being rebellious, but others are really dealing with serious issues that may not be known to their parents. So choosing a “behavioral modification” program when a “therapeutic” program is needed can do more harm than good. It can also be a big waste of money.

No one was around to help us find the right program for our boy. We made a mistake to begin with, and that cost us dearly, but after weeks of research we found a good program that was able to help our son. Today, our family and even our son are thankful for that program.

The program we finally enrolled him in literally saved his life and got him off the downward spiral.

So, is your family experiencing the same storms of a teenager who is out of control? Are you walking on similar pins and needles around your teen? Does it sometimes seem like he or she has suddenly been taken over by aliens (well, not literally)?

More about Bedford, New York:Bedford, New York can refer to:

Bedford is a town in Westchester County, New York, USA. The population was 17,335 at the 2010 census.

The Town of Bedford is located in the northeastern part of Westchester County, and contains the three hamlets of Bedford Hills, Bedford Village, and Katonah. Westchester County ranks number two (number one being Manhattan) for wealthiest counties in New York State and the seventh wealthiest county nationally.

Bedford, commonly known as Bedford Village, is a hamlet (and census-designated place or CDP) located in the town of Bedford in Westchester County, New York. The population was 1,834 at the 2010 census.

Bedford is a community in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, centered approximately at the corner of modern-day Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue.

Its name is better known today as part of the larger community of Bedford-Stuyvesant. See that entry for a description of the contemporary neighborhood.

Bedford, in pre-American Revolutionary War times, was the first major settlement to the east of the then-Village of Brooklyn on the Brooklyn & Jamaica Turnpike to Jamaica, Queens and the rest of Long Island. It formed a major crossroads with roads to Williamsburg to the north and Bedford Road to Flatbush to the south.

The advent of the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) in 1836 early established Bedford as a major railroad town as well and, in 1878, the building of a terminal and junction with the Brooklyn, Flatbush and Coney Island Railway made Bedford an important gateway to Coney Island.

The LIRR continues to operate the Atlantic Branch on its original route, though it is now in a tunnel under Atlantic Avenue west of Bedford Avenue and on an elevated structure east of that point. Bedford Station, originally west of Franklin Avenue, is now located two blocks east on the structure and is known as Nostrand Avenue Station. The BF&CI is now part of the BMT Franklin Avenue Line subway and its station is now located at the corner of Fulton and Franklin.

Bedford Brooklyn has an extensive urban fabric of historic townhomes. These townhouses also known as “brownstones,” because of the brownstone building material, were built around the turn of the 20th century. Often referred to as pre-war architecture, these homes were developed by speculative developers for the expanding middle to upper middle class from the 1890’s to the late 1910’s. Many of these homes contain highly ornamental detailing throughout the interior of the home and have classical architectural elements, such as brackets, quoins, fluting, finials, elaborate frieze and cornice banding.

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission may deem individual properties or entire urban streetscapes, which can consist of multiple blocks, can be protected under landmark status. If the property owners and community show the necessary support for the effort, properties maybe placed into preservation. The process takes years and is accomplished through an extensive series of community meetings, commission historical analysis, and individual structure documentation and final vote. This protects the exterior envelope of the property from future demolition or alteration from speculative developers.

Currently, Bedford Brooklyn is undergoing an effort to landmark multiple blocks North of Nostrand Avenue and Fulton Street. These include blocks: Arlington Place from Macon Street to Halsey Street; Halsey Street from Bedford Avenue to Marcy Avenue; Hancock Street from Bedford Avenue to Tompkins Avenue; Jefferson Street from Nostrand Avenue to Tompkins Avenue. This area was originally named Bedford Corners by the community group perusing landmark status for the area and has been subsequently shortened to Bedford.
