Is there a counseling job where I would deal with teens living in single parent homes?
I'm a teen coming from a single parent home and I was wondering if there was a counseling or therapy job I could go to college for so that I could deal with kids/teens living in single parent homes. It was just a thought since I could relate to them and actually understand what they're going through. Please help, thank you(:

You would need to get courses that deal with child psychology and those kinds of courses and then you could get a job most anywhere that worked with any sort of kids. Most of that is handled by 'Wards of the Court' or 'Child Protective Services' etc. through each state's Juvenile Court system.

Once you have a degree in psychology or social work, you are free to counsel any demographic of the population you want. Don't assume that every teen with divorced parents needs counselling....
