Wayward and Disobedient Youth Program

A Wayward/Disobedient Petition is a legal charge a parent or guardian can file against his/her child if the child is exhibiting or engaging in serious behavior that would be considered disobedient, or persistent running away from home, not following house rules and or not keeping curfew. By filing a Wayward / Disobedient Petition against their child, parents or guardians are saying that they are no longer able to manage their child’s behaviors and as a result, cannot ensure the safety of their child. Therefore, they are requesting interventions to help the family find solutions.
