Are we talking Army boot camp here, or do they have an Army style boot camp for troubled teens
Army boot camp, probably yes. If they were on a fast track to self destruction then some intensive discipline and routine would definately be something I would try.
Boot camp for troubled teens, unsure. Do I want my self destructive teenager forced into close contact with other self destructive teens, I really don't think so. I think they would have enough troubles of their own without finding out about everybody elses 'how to drive my parents insane, and damage myself in the process' behaviours.
Then again maybe seeing what they could turn into would be enough to 'scare them straight'. I really don't know, and hope I don't have to find out.
We have 1 down and 2 to go, so here's hoping.
