Parents turn to Wraparound for lots of reasons. Some are concerned that their children are struggling in school. Others see behaviours that worry or bother them—there may be incidents of stealing, assault, unsafe sex, or alcohol and drug abuse. Children may be spending time with the wrong kinds of friends or even taking part in gang-related or criminal activity.
Some parents feel their children’s behaviour is potentially dangerous and destructive. And there are those who are panicked because their children are already putting themselves in unsafe situations or harming themselves.
In all cases, children and youth are presenting challenges that their parents weren’t expecting, don’t feel prepared for, and need some help addressing.
