Is anyone here familiar with them or involved with them in any way?

Most "boot camp" environments are set up for a fairly narrow segment of offenders.And most require placement there as an option by sentencing court with agreement of parents and delinquent child.They are one step below prison in most cases and not designed for miscreants without "Severe" problems.WI just graduated their first class of 89 from State sponsered voluntary "boot camp" program and feel it was/is a successful venture.At a lower level most states or regions have "behavioral modification" schools for kids who "act out",display overly aggresive behavior etc.Kids are evaluated by specialists and if ordered enter a lockdown type school with very strict rules and expectations,Initially there is like a 30 day,no visit,no correspodence,adjustment period and child is educated besides being in therapy sessions,group dynamics etc.Degree of acceptance,behavior etc determines length of stay and privelidges.Daughter of friend spent about 90 days there"getting adjusted" a few yrs ago when she got completely out of control at 14.It was an uphill battle but she came out with a new sense of worth and values which got her headed down the path of life safely,instead of becoming the alcholic,drug abusing street tramp,and criminal she could well have become.Talk to a juvenile caseworker,specializing in these matters,your taxes pay their wages and thats what they're there for.

We saw a picture of "somebody's" MIL over on Tales, don't none of ya'll let him send her to ya,that falls under "cruel and unusual punishment".Besides Clipper, we all (most of us) gots our own MIL to deal with.
