I've personally always thought it would be a great experience. There are other ways to control your kids and that should be done by the parents, as they need to take YOU seriously. I don't believe that boot camp should really be used as a punishment so much as a learning experience for an individual to grow emotionally and physically. It would depend on the age and circumstances, of course, but taking control of your own children should probably be worked on by YOU. Kids have a lot of energy, it just needs to be channeled more into productivity if you feel that they are "out of control". Sports may be a good idea to try before sending them away to boot camp.
I have cousins who were sent to bootcamp - and i fully support my families decision in sending them. There are chilldren out there that no matter how much you discipline them or are the best parents in the world, you cant handle them and you cant change them. I dont feel it should be the first thing a parent tries, but as a last resort, i agree with it. My cousin Jen (who is 27) now was sent to bootcamp after being kicked out of five schools, being arrested for dr.ug charges, etc. Bootcamp worked for her and it helped her. She will tell you to this day shes thankful that her parents sent her.
Depends on what you mean by out of control
If they're just a hyper little spaz then they just need some meds or something xD
But if they're one of those kids that's constantly getting in trouble for the same thing over and over and they dont seem to be learning by any other means then I say off to boot camp! xP
I have yet to meet a kid who was out of control and the parents couldn't have done something else. Even with the best intentions parents sometimes go wrong. There's ways to fix it. I don't think boot camp is the solution. However, if parents arent going to change, it is better than nothing.
I think it can be a great thing. Sometimes people need someone to hammer that discipline into them.
While I don't think it should be a first option, some children/people in general - just have issues with being a productive member of society.
i believe that it is a good form of discipline as long as it does not cross the line of learning and and being flat out over extreme. i think that it will teach discipline though and it can in some cases be a good idea
no not at all children shouldnt be forced to go to bootcamp unless they want to......im not saying your a bad parent but they probly just need some more time spent with you and more discipline
o ok well i still dont think people should send there children to bootcamp because sometimes it can just mess them up
I think that it is like a last resource thing, you need to try all the things possible and not give up on him/her.
Its not my children I'm just asking in general cuz I know some parents who have a lot of probs with thr kids
