Hey, Ginger, I don't think you're off the wall. I think you have legitimate questions and concerns. I will see what I can do to get the answers for you.

Ok, I made a couple of edits. If you've sent out my questions to anyone, could you please also give them the url to the updated version.

Thanks :exclaim:

Yap I've sent out the questions. Where do I find the updated version (feeling a little stupid right now, it's probably under my nose)? Can you send it to me here again? Thanks.

Here's are the questions I asked:

1.  Does Alison and the rest of the A START group know about Straight, Inc., Life, Growing Together, and SAFE, Orlando?

2.  Which community based programs does ASTART want to funnel federal funding to?

3.  What is the science they have to back the claim that these programs are safer and more effective than the Synanon based tough love troubled parent industry?

4.  Do they understand or have an open mind to the fact that most people don't need any formal intervention at all and that many of the problems could be resolved at home with love and guidance?

I couldn't agree more with number 4. From all the kids I've talked to, and some parents too, things could have easily been resolved at home in many instances. And more often than not, it does seem to be linked to parenting style.

Anyway, let me know if the questions above are OK and what you'd like me to add. Thanks.

("What about "tough lovin'" the parents for a change. How about they get some tough love for themselves to see where they went wrong and why their kid is acting out, or whatever else may be going wrong?")


I support this statement 100%....
 ::cheers::

I don't think my parents would have sent me away if they did some "tough love" on themselves.
MMS was to fix me and in turn fix all the problems at home...
Yet when I went home to the same enviorment I left...not to much changed.

I know not everyone thinks so, but it does start with the parents and they need to step back and think twice about what they are doing.
Maybe we as children or even young adults...say 16,  should be able to hire escorts to come and take them away....esp when we start to see boarding school brochures on the dining room table.  :rofl:

I'm not sure that many would disagree on this point- I know that I certainly agree!!!!!  Good point, B!!!! Someone once told me it's like taking a fish out of a dirty bowl and then putting them back into that dirty bowl...I thought that an applicable metaphor in this instance...[ This Message was edited by: katfish on 2005-10-24 23:59 ]

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

I was at MMS from 94-97 yes all three years......
I think at that time MMS was not only emotionally hard but esp Physically hard.
