Texas – Is a large state in the southern U.S. with deserts, pine forests and the Rio Grande, a river that forms its border with Mexico. In its biggest city, Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts houses works by well-known Impressionist and Renaissance painters, while Space Center Houston offers interactive displays engineered by NASA. Austin, the capital, is known for its eclectic music scene.

If you want your child to succeed, look for how they react to pressure. While many teens get along fine with dozens of things thrown at them, others might react totally opposite and shut down their dreams and their feelings. Most do this because of their fear of failure. Let your child know that as long as they do their best, it’s okay. It’s only when they don’t try, they fail.

Texas – Texas has a reputation as being the place where the Old West begins. So it’s easy to understand why some people are surprised to find more than 600 miles of sparkling coastline here. We’re also home to the longest undeveloped barrier island in the world. It’s true. So if you’re looking for a stretch of beach to soak up the sun and the surf, we have a “little” room for you here.

Do you feel that your child is struggling with an eating disorder? Binge-eating is characterized by uncontrollable, excessive eating, followed by feelings of shame and guilt. Unlike those with bulimia, teenagers with a binge eating problem typically don’t purge their food. However, many kids who have bulimia also have binge-eating disorder.
