“TEEN TROUBLE”

Behavior specialist, author and motivational speaker Josh Shipp hosts the all-new gripping, unscripted series TEEN TROUBLE.  In each episode, Shipp serves as the last hope for troubled families desperate to save their out-of-control teens and gives them the critical help they need to avoid tragedy.  He will embed himself into the hidden lives of at-risk teens on dangerous, self-destructive paths – taking drugs, stealing from their families, abusing alcohol and breaking the law. With his gritty approach, Shipp will confront the teens and their parents to identify the often deeply-seated roots of the problem and demonstrate the severity the teen’s issues using real-life examples of cause and effect.
