Boot Camps for Troubled Teens in Boca Raton, FL | Boys & Girls

Boot camps for troubled teens around Boca Raton, FL are desigend to be a wake up call.  Boot camps use "behavioral modification" as their main modality for behavioral change.  Behavioral modification in this case is "fear and intimidation".  Through a boot camp experience in Boca Raton, FL you will find a bunch of authority figures yelling and screaming at the campers.  This is very similar to what you would find in a US Military Boot Camp.  The good news is that troubled teens usually respond well while participating in the boot camp experience.  The bad news is that the behavioral changes (improvements) that come through a boot camp do not last very long.  For more information about boot camps for troubled teens call Call 866-471-8579.  We can help you find the perfect alternative to a boot camp.

It is our recommendation to parents of troubled boys and girls that they steer clear of boot camps for troubled teens in Boca Raton, FL.  In fact, many teenagers who expeience boot camps come out angry, turn away from their parents and drop into deeper rebellion.  Lets take a good look at this phenomena for a moment.  Why would teenagers come out of the boot camp and be worse?  When teenagers have emotional trauma at the core of their "acting out" issues, a boot camp is the last place they need to be.  These struggling kids don't need to be yelled and screamed at, they need therapy and emotional growth.  They need to take responsibility for their choices, and hold themselves accountable, but not because someone (staff) is intimidating them with fear.

Furthermore, when teenagers are suffering from depression, anxiety, mood swings, or learning disorders, a boot camp experience could cause more trauma and more emotional damage.  If a child is struggling with emotional immaturity that is tied to a horrible divorce, the last thing you need to do is to punish that child by sending them to a boot camp in Boca Raton, FL.  It is true that an emotionally immature child who is not dealing with a divorce well will act out and cause trouble, but the point is that a boot camp is not the way to improve his or her behavior. This "confused" child is not going to come home after the boot camp experience and all of a sudden behave properly.  In reality, nothing has changed, except that he or she is angrier than before.
