A rebellious 17 year old is increasingly getting into trouble, doing drugs, and hiding events from his parents. As things spiral further out of control, his parents turn to an organization called "Toughlove" for help. There they learn that it sometimes is necessary to turn your back on your child and allow him to accept the consequences of his actions. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

It is not easy to be parents
29 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film in the classroom. I am doubting about the parental style of the parents. However, I still not be a parent so I can not say anything. I think more and more parents meet the situation but not know how to face it. I do not think it is the best way as the movie show but it can let you think how to face your teenage child.
