Locking a kid up in a cage doesn't help them. It only helps the people who love them and are watching them hurt themselves.


Yup. It's like this. It's an imaginary problem, all this hysteria over drugs and allegedly out of control youths and all. No matter that it's fiction, it's convincing fiction and it scares hell out of the parents, judges, schoolpeople and others. Program provides another fiction that's more soothing, that's what the rents and the courts and other supporters are paying for. I think we should just by them a beer; same effect, much much cheaper and less distructive.

My mother once told me, if you don't have anything nice to say -- don't say anything at all.  :question:

We had forms of isolation at Benchmark... nothing so draconic, but similar effect and similar reasons.  They never used physical isolation really (we were over 18)...  instead they threw kids on the streets with no money, ID, etc; made sure you failed, and let you come back, weak or broken.  repeat until subject believes he/she will never be successful without the program... Or they attacked you in group...  Or kept you on bans with everybody...  Different things for different people, until you started to work the program...  AA meetings they would escort you to at nights and on weekends...  you weren't allowed to share, but you could hear how you were going to end up like that illiterate slob across the table if you didn't stay in program.  I was too "in my head" I was outspoken, pointed out flaws in logic, debated...  The guy to convince me I wasn't real was a counselor at CEDU, Carl Janowitz.  He normally functioned as a parent relations (propogandist) guy, but on occasions when he was needed, was brought out to "facilitate" group as sort of a "Heavy hitter".  He seemed very in touch with emotion, at least his Jargon made it sound that way.  I realize, now, that he was only spouting est-ian philosophy about authenticity to attack your self.  He made you feel that there was something inside you... some truth of who you are, and you could only find it by "taking down your walls" and "taking off your mask"...  Everything about you, from your dress to how you talked, to your taste in music, was an elaborate effort to distract from who you really were, according to him, and he made it seem so true, he made it seem so right.  oh well..

ADHD... Autism, mental retardation, aspergers, Chronic anxiety, Schizophrenia... you name it... they would claim to be able to fix it....

Chances are, if you tried to tell your dad the truth in letters they never reached him.  Half the letters my parents wrote me never got to me.  My aunt's birthday package they tried to keep from me as well...
