As a single parent, I do not have the time to constantly be at his school for meetings with guidance counselors and principals to discuss the issues he is having both in class and out of class with other students. Since he is failing all of his classes and has recently started a fight in school, I would not be surprised if the next decision is expulsion.
I really love my son and want the best for him, but I am feeling at a loss as far as what to do next. I have heard from other parents that it would be better for me to get a New Jersey family court involved and have a judge assign him to a boot camp or
My personal opinion is that boot camp or a similar program would do him some real good. Despite my best efforts, he really does not have discipline or respect for authority and I am worried for his future. But since my financial situation is less than ideal, I am trying to find boot camps for free.
Does anyone have experience with sending their teenager to a free boot camp program? Do you feel that they offered a quality program that gave the same results as a more expensive camp would?
My son is still a minor and I am not sure if that will affect which boot camp programs he is eligible for. I am hoping to get him into a good boot camp and on the right track before he turns 18. The last thing I want for him is problems with the law, so I need to act quickly. Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
