Food poisoning: What is the safe tolerance thereof at CALO?

Quote from: "Che Gookin"
I've heard stories about CALO cooks feeding the kids infected meat. Did this happen?

I've heard a story along those lines as well. That the meat was stored in the fridge for a highly unrecommended length of time (at least a week). That a lot of people got sick, especially the kids. Must be those young tender stomachs.

Was it Salmonella? Was it Staph. aureus? These are the two more common forms of food poisoning. Let's be thankful it wasn't botulism.

I think parents would do well to contact their kids regarding this incident. Or... were there more incidents?



Are parent-student communications monitored by CALO? I would hate for parents to worry that their concerns are prevented from being honestly answered.

FYI CALO PARENTS
Before the molestation takes place, the perpetrator goes to great lengths to cement his or her relationship with the child to insure compliance. This behavior is called “grooming.”

In his publication, “Child Molesters: A Behavioral Analysis,” former FBI agent Kenneth V. Lanning lays out  stages of the grooming process: identifying a possible victim, collecting information about the intended victim, filling a need, lowering inhibitions, and initiating the abuse. The good news is that there are several opportunities during the process for savvy parents to spot what is going on and put a stop to it.


Identifying a Possible Victim
The first stage in the grooming process is the identification of a likely victim. Pedophiles differ in their preferences regarding gender, age, and appearance, but almost every pedophile looks for a child who is vulnerable in some way.


Filling a Need
Once the pedophile knows a little about his victim, he steps into that child’s life to fill a need. Thus a poor child might receive expensive gifts, a lonely child might receive extra time and attention, and a child who feels unloved might receive unconditional affection.
Know the adults who play a dominant role in your child’s life. Be aware if your child suddenly starts talking about one adult more than any other.
Lowering Inhibitions
Next the pedophile begins working to lower the child’s inhibitions about sexual matters. He may make sexual comments, show the child pornographic movies or pictures, or manufacture situations where he and the child will be undressed.
At this stage, children sometimes become a little uncomfortable around the abuser. Watch for any changes in attitude towards an adult that has been important in your child’s life. Watch, too, for inappropriate sexual comments or interest. (E.g., “Mr. Smith says I have big boobs.”)
Initiating the Abuse
At this stage, the pedophile begins overt sexual abuse of the child. When the abuse occurs, many children show marked changes in their personalities and behaviors. Often they will look for an excuse to avoid the abuser.
When it comes to protecting your child from abuse, inform yourself about the stages of grooming and trust your knowledge and intuition. If you have any concerns about the adults in your child’s life, investigate further and, if necessary, put a stop to any questionable relationships. Anyone who truly cares about children will understand your desire to protect your child from harm and respect your decision.

Abuse is the harmful exercise of power.

In programs, staff have power over every aspect of the teens’ lives:
* Food, clothing, shelter
* Youth not permitted to leave campus
* Physical and mental health
* Education; intellectual freedom
* Religious/spiritual practice
* Books, newspapers, television, radio, Internet
* Relationships and sexuality
* Work tasks—chores, physical labor as punishment, or part-time employment—and earnings, if any
* Access to communication with family or advocates
* Civic involvement and political action
* And approval to graduate and leave

This is a recipe for the abusive exercise of power. For child molesters and bullies, this is a dream job.

Parents have all the power and control.......
That can occur to any child in any family in America by just living at home.  Children dont have to travel far to get abused or bullied.  Some can experience it right at home.  Children dont have any rights of their own until the come of age.  Many children who go to programs gain more freedoms than they had at home.

You make it sound like it is an every day occurrance that a child would be kept completely isolated without any accesss to outsiders--like that's normal parenting. (Maybe to you that sounds like normal parenting.)

And you blew past the issue of child molesters and bullies being drawn to this type of work/setting.

The kids are isolated for months and years, and the parents are not there to protect their children from abusers who would harm them. Further, the children have no access to outside advocates in order to report abuse. The abusers don't need to groom the children to keep them quiet--the kids are pre-branded as "liars," and can't reach law enforcement to report abuse when it occurs.

I would never place a child in such a high-risk environment. Period.

Most of the list is an everyday occurance.  It is not unique to programs at all, but many here try to pretend it is.  Everything applies except the communication to family.

The only safe alternative is to home school your child.  If you send them to a public high school then they are exposed to teachers who may molest them.  They are forced to disrobe after sports practice and shower which leaves them exposed to all sorts of potential abuse from peers, coaches and assistants.  We all read about this everyday.  Child molesters and bullies are not unique to programs they follow kids where ever they go.

We, as a society, need to do a better job protecting these kids.  But anyway, I responded because I didn’t want the readers to get the impression that programs were unique to this problem and to just be honest and say it is a problem we have at all levels of education and treatment of our children.
