Does anyone know of a free boot camp for troubled teens

Does anyone know of a free boot camp for troubled teens

by Boot Camps on March 1, 2012

This is kind of a difficult situation to talk about, but here I go. My nephew is just about to turn 13 years old and is having some serious social, school, and family issues. He is failing all his classes except for a D in P.E., and is constantly getting in trouble for disrespecting his teachers, other students and his parents. From my perspective my brother is a great father that really cares about this kid, but his son will just not behave even when he is grounded or put on restriction.

This kid just will not listen to anyone. My brother even had him drug tested and tested for any type of mental disorder. Every test indicates there is nothing wrong, yet the issues are right in front of us. My brother’s wife stays at home to keep an eye

on their son, but he is making even her life difficult. She assigns him chores, but he will not do them and ends up being defiant to the whole parent child relationship. The whole family is at a loss at this point.

My brother is seriously considering placing him in a boot camp for teens. We have researched some of them and feel that the structure, discipline, and respect these camps teach can really help with this kids attitude. The problem is that my brother is not wealthy by any measure and there is no way he could afford one of those camps. We have looked for a free boot camp for boys, but have not been able to find one. Again, we are at a loss and would like to know if there are any free boot camps for teenagers? We would also like to hear about any other options that might be available, and what other parents have done when faced with this type of situation.

I have many of the same problems as well, only mine is with my 12 year old daughter. She is very defient and disrespectful and I don’t really know what to do anymore. I can’t afford the cost of boot camp as well. Her grades have dropped and we end up arguing every day because I won’t let her do everything that it is that she wants to do as well as the fact that I expect her to clean up her room and pick up after herself. I work 10 hours a day just to make sure that my bills are paid, but when I don’t have much left over, then she seems to think that makes me selfish. If she isn’t taking her anger and irritation out on me, then she is taking it out on her younger siblings. I’ve tried getting her to talk to me about things and teaching her different ways to vent and cope with things, but nothing seems to be working and I’m out of ideas. If anyone has any sugestions, I would be more than grateful. I have been looking into sending her into a boot camp or military camp.

Grizzly Youth Academy in San Luis Obispo was great for my son. They have great military structure for troubled teens.

I have a 16 year old I have been trying to seek help for 2 years now and still have no idea what to do. Now my 15 year old is taking after my 16 year old and I am at my wits with the situation. My 16 year old started out just being defiant to everyone then he started smoking weed and skipping school now he’s doing all that and not coming home at all and popping cold, cough, and cognition pills and is having sex. I need help and the system now days states the child has to agree to be placed when did they system decied if our children were worth saving or not I think this is a crazy world if anyone knows where I can turn for help please send me a message, because I had two amazing children that at one point were calm, smart and had so many goals to two confused and angry boys that just want to run the streets. My family is not a good one and I just want my children to take a different road then I was taught. Thank You for listening to my pled for help.
