JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A mother in Jonesboro turned to a non-profit organization in town with the hope of leading her son on the right path.

Mandi Fair turned on her television Tuesday and saw what bad choices can do in a teen’s life when she learned a teenager had been charged in the death of a woman.

Fair went to the Internet for help because he teenage has been in and out of bad situations.

She found King’s Ranch which is a non-profit organization in Jonesboro. Their goal is to heal the hearts of children and families through therapeutic parenting.

Fair found parental training on their website that she wished she would have found earlier.

She is now encouraging other struggling parents to look into the online program in the hope troubled teens can find a way out.

“The King’s Ranch, they want to help kids who are troubled and that’s so important,” Fair said. “There’s so many kids out there that need help.”
