Brat Camp for Kids

by Boot Camps on May 16, 2010

Help me find a brat camp for kids that doesn’t cost very much. This is more than a slight behavior issue. I need to get control before it gets out of hand.  I have been searching for a brat camp for kids for many months now.  I need a good camp that teaches Catholic values, discipline, structure, virtues, morality, respect for elders and authority.

I need a place like this that will take my 12 year old.  He has been fighting and has been suspended from to school to often, stealing, lying etc.   He has also started getting tickets and going to court almost monthly and doing just community service, my family and I are begging for help.    I am sure there are some parents out there that could advise me on this.  He has been

stealing money from family, doing poorly in school and hanging out with the wrong crowd.  If he gets any worse, I am going to call the police and just tell them to come get him.  I am just at my wits end.  We are in New England, but he can go anywhere.  In fact, the further away he is, the better for the time being.

I am also a single parent with a low income. Please help with some free, low-cost or subsidized options. Are there any grants out there for something like this?  Are there any government programs that would help with this?  I appreciate all of your help in advance.

I had heard about a show for kids in your situation. I would try searching on the Internet for something. Also look up grants for brat camps or boot camps for kids grants.

Check out the ABC prime time special, Brat Camp. That may help with ideas.

Go on a little visit to your local prison. Scare him by telling him about prison life and showing him where the prisoners eat, sleep and work.

It’s almost always the parents’ fault. Blame yourself for their behaviour. Military school works. Forced labour is another option.

So what your saying is that its my fault that my child beats her siblings when i do not touch my children? My daughter is almost 11 and all she does is fight and scream with everyone she has left scars on the other children as well as myself… So its my fault that her father commited susicide and left me to raise 4 children at 32 years old? Im sorry bud but i am doing the very best that i can i need to do something for her own well being so that she grows up to be a good person …she is still my baby no matter where she is!

I have never hit my kids and my 9 year old told the preschool teacher when he was 4 that we hit him all the time. Now he hits his sister all the time, in my opinion it’s because he has never been hit and doesn’t know what it feels like.

There are several camps like this all around the country. You can look on-line, but be sure to do your homework before you send your child to any of them. I wanted to send my son this past summer. Once I told him I had found a few places and made some phone calls, he took me serious and changes his behavior for the better. Good luck.

There are several "boot camp" style camps for kids, usually teenagers who are seriously involved in life-threatening types of behaviors (drugs, sex, gangs, etc.) They are expensive–my cousin spent almost $60,000 to send his son to a drug abuse camp, only to send the kid back to rehab 3 months later. Check with your local family services, and local psycologists/psychiatrists (preferably your child’s).

However, if the problem isn’t severe, then good old fashioned disipline is your answer, and that comes from you. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Don’t make idle threats to kids, they pick up on those. If you say you’re going to do something, then do it. If you lay down a consequence for bad behavior, then when the behavior shows up (and it will) the consequence must as well. Remove priveleges for poor choices, reward positive choices. Best of luck to you.

I work as a youth worker and believe that parents are to blame if they have abused their child, neglected their child and treated them soo badly that their child has no opportunity in life to grow as a respectful human being….it is not right to cast judgement on a person’s parenting when you do not know the situation, yes some parents are just too soft, but thats nothing on what some people do to their kids, and Nissa is obviously aware of her mistakes but willing to try to help her boy, bad parents don’t do that they leave their kids to fend for themselves…….

Hi nissa I am going through the same problem and I put mine in a karate class and it really straighten him out plus he enjoyed being there after a week so find something that he likes to do as in sports or anything and get him started immediately…. Hope this helps

Yeah my friend is being a little shit. He’s like two years younger than us so we’re trying to find him a place to go to. If anybody could link me to some Brat camps that go out to Central Australia or something hectic that’d be awesome.
