OK...so I'm reading strugglingteens.com forum...an I found something to be quite funny.

First...let me preface what I am saying by letting everybody know that I have my B.S. in Economics.

The post I was reading was a few years old but I still found it somewhat amusing.

There was a single mother of an 18 year old boy asking the forum how they afford the schools. She was already working two jobs and stated that the tuitions at the programs were out of reach for her.

Lon chose to post a reply to her query.

He first noted that there were a number of schools that have scholarships...yet he went on to tell the poster that "the chances of getting one of those is a little like the chances of being hit by lightening, since there are so many parents looking for financial help"

so much for that avenue :roll:  

then he goes on to explaining how she can possibly get the state or health insurance to pay for it...and even goes so far as to state that there are even public programs that may be helpful if her child fits a certain criteria.

here's the kicker

Lon then states that "One common mistake parents make is to start by looking for something they can afford. That automatically eliminates many options that with determination, might work out."

finally...the punchline

"Often also, parents do what I did, and take out a second mortgage on their home to afford the tuition. This is often the unthinkable when parents first start their search, but if there is a possibility there, its worth weighing the pros and cons. In my case, my daughter graduated about eight years ago, and with luck, I'll get the second mortgage paid off by the end of this year, and it was worth every penny."

For anybody that is considering a second mortgage...I suggest that you brush up on your knowledge of the economy.

I know your message is a little old but I wanted to offer my support of your version.  I am a parent.  My daughter was in the jr. hi program after taking an overdose.  Her "family head" ( joke #3) betrayed her.  After she graduated her father, in a fit of rage and just to punish her, had her kidnapped and put in the harsher high school torture cedu concentration camp.  I was able to get her out after three weeks but the damage was done and she never got over it.  I hope you are doing well and want to tell you that you are soooooooo right on!  Those schools should be closed down and all the teachers jailed.

These programs are very good at selling their product. Even seemingly honest psychiatrists appear to get sucked into the scam. I can't see how a reasonable person can let their kid be in one of these places for a year or more without smelling something foul.  These places stink of abuse very quickly. At some point, it has to be a conscious disregard for reality.

Dear Hanlea,
           
      I agree that many CEDU programs are destructive emotionally.  I went to Sagewalk, A.K.A. Brat camp, four years ago and had a similar experience.  I was not on drugs, involved in the law, or with the wrong crowd.  Low self esteem and anger problems, due to watching my father die less than a year before being sent, were the reasons I went.   The camp staff initially told me that I was to be there a month, however when that month rolled around they said that I was not allowed to leave until I started making "progress".  I was forced to talk about things which, by doing so put a damper on my emotional development.  I felt embarressed, exposed, and especially guilty by the tactic of "speak or stay indeffinately".  No one should force their presence so much as to skip trust forming, bond making and friendship building steps in trying to help a teenager who recently lost a father. After reviewing the brochure, I do see the deception involved in creating them.  There was no education that I recieved outside of emotional growth packets,  the "professionals" had little or no training if any, and the environment for emotional development was, most definately, not fertile soil.   What happened after this experience?  I was left to deal with issues created by the camp, and my relationship with my mom has suffered greatly because of the poor decision to fall into believing  the trickery.  It is hard not to blame her, however, I do believe that she was scammed into believing this program and her money (over twenty seven thousand to be exact) were going to help her child during a troubling time.  Such CEDU programs have hurt many kids emotionally, and I am one of them as well.

July 21, 2010

At StrugglingTeens.com, we continually strive to enhance our client's visibility. Over the next several weeks, we will begin offering new and improved advertising opportunities, permitting advertisements in areas never before allowed on our website. The first phase will commence this week.

For the first time ever, schools, programs, services and educational consultants can advertise on a banner without having to purchase a button in a separate category on StrugglingTeens.com. Web Banners, in addition to enhancing a brand, supply readers with easy access your school, program or service's website. And because the banners display at the top of nearly 60,000 pages, the number of impressions is greatly enhanced. Readers will see advertisements while reading articles, not just when doing research.

Strugglingteens.com receives approximately 2,000 unique visitors per day. Because of the numerous pages the banner displays on, visibility of the services advertised on the banner is extremely enhanced when compared with a button. Also, unlike the button ads, banners use software allowing our IT department to track each click-through. With a Web Banner, you can request a traffic report of your campaign profile and determine just how many times your banner shows up and how many people visit your site from ours.

For more information or pricing on the new Independent Web Banner, contact Kristie Campbell at 208-267-5550 x 102 or send email to kristie@woodbury.com.
