When parents choose boot camps, they are making the dangerous assumption that boot camps for troubled teens will be the answer for changing their child's negative and unproductive behavior. Parents usually choose boot camps because of the perception of boot camps created in their own minds: "My child will learn discipline and learn how to respect authority." This however, could not be further from the truth.
When you force a troubled teen to go to a boot camp where they will literally be screamed and barked orders at all day, this will enhance their negative and rebellious behavior upon their graduation. Whatever improvements your child may make after graduating boot camp is almost always completely temporary. In fact, sending your troubled teen to a boot camp would more than likely be counterproductive. A boot camp would most likely reinforce the teens disdain for authority and possibly destroy the relationship with parents even further.
The only way to promote permanent emotional and therapeutic change in a teen, is to promote change from within. This type of change only occurs when the teen trusts their staff and respects them, not because they are afraid, but because they truly believe the staff are there to help and that they truly care.
