    This late in the game, you may have to get really creative.

    Write and decorate coupon books for your children.

    coupons can be redeemed for a ball practice, a skating night, a bowling night, movie night, new dress, an ice cream outing........whatever your teens are into.

    Just make it a one on one outing.  Teens may be more likely to confide in you, if they are not in the company of their siblings.
     
    I do not know much about the various programs that may be able to help, but I fear, you may be too late in the season with the poor economy.

    Best wishes to you........
