Life struggles that impact pre-teens and teens in today’s culture disappear as boys understand important life principles and academics in a unique, transformational approach. With over 30 years of experience with boys (ages 10-17), Triangle Cross enlists an expert life coach, therapists and mentors in our approach to instill principles of family and love as well as the “Cowboy Code of the West” – an honorable, manly approach to life that is still alive and well in Wyoming. This approach is based on our strong Catholic faith, and we accept families from all Christian traditions. We call this “Reality Counseling” and your son will never be the same. Our experienced, caring and committed staff provides strong academics, as well as trade school education. Give us a call to learn more about our program at Triangle Cross Boys Ranch, (307) 645-3322.
Parents looking for effective therapy methods to help a struggling young boy can learn about how we treat Mood Swings at our therapeutic Christian boarding school and ranch in Wyoming.
Triangle Cross Boys Ranch understands that parents want to send their son to a safe, monitored environment where he receives personal care, and individual therapies that help heal emotional and mental disorders–whether brought on by trauma, foster care, adoption or family genetics.
And while the young boy or teen enrolls our therapeutic boarding school for counseling, treatment, and improving academic/life skills, Triangle Cross Boys Ranch also helps boys struggling with mood swings improve their mental and physical health.
Toddlers and young children often appear “moody” and may throw tantrums as they learn to regulate their emotions. While they’re generally a normal part of emotional development, mood swings in children can also be a sign of an underlying mental health disorder, learning disability, or even a physical ailment.
As kids get older, mood swings continue to be a normal part of their development. By the time they enter the preteen years, fluctuations in mood are primarily driven by hormonal changes. These shifts in mood tend to peak during adolescence and gradually stabilize by young adulthood.
What a Young Teen Eats…
A boy or teen who is eating a diet that’s nutritionally inadequate or not getting enough to eat may experience mood changes in response to fluctuating blood sugar levels and malnourishment.
Digestive disorders that affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, such as Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), have also been associated with mood swings. These conditions have also been linked to specific mental health conditions, such as depression.
How a Young Teen Sleeps…
A boy’s mood can also be heavily influenced by the amount and quality of sleep they get. A teen who is sleep-deprived (especially when chronic) may experience intense mood fluctuations as well as other psychiatric symptoms.
Triangle Cross Gives Boys Healthier Ways to Deal with Mood Swings
That’s why Triangle Cross helps boys with Mood Swings. Therapists address your child’s symptoms to determine if the mood swings are symptoms of other mental disorders, or not, and create an individual treatment plan to follow at school, including therapy. We also provide nutritious meals, and healthy exercise and activities. We want each student to experience effective counseling and treatment, as well as improve daily life at school, and back home with family.
