Never heard of them myself. I'd suggest you register a username and use the "start watching this topic" link at the foot of the page so that, if someone responds weeks or months from now, you'll get email notification. No need to post under the username and I never give out email addresses from the database (do use a good address, but check the "don't show my email address" box in the registration page)


He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion.

John Bundy has, what seems like a million, websites with deceptive names.  THey all lead you to the same site.  For instance, do a search in altavista for "troubled teen florida" and most of what comes up are sites that will be one and the same.  He's got the search engines flooded with spam.  That's all I know about him.  I know nothing of the schools he refers to.

Aren't they considered a "Christian based" program?

Did anyone else notice that at the bottom of ALL the websites, it lists Parent Help as the parent company.  That is owned by John Bundy.  Do a whois search, some are private that you can't see, other's list him as the owner of the sites.  What a racket!  THe site is owned by him, but don't know if he actually owns Thayer.

Isn't Missouri one of the States that require an agreement by the teen to go?

SOMEHOW when you click on the links in the above site, it defaults or redirects to pharmacies if you click on them from this site.  There are obviously a LOT more that weren't added, as evident from the phone number search in several search engines. The owner of the sites is the webmaster, not Bundy himself.  Wonder how many parents have been duped by his spam??  THIS IS WRONG!

Hmmm...looks like they have some new sites attached to the previous ones now.  Do a search for the new phone number 800-781-8081 and some more come up.  This guy must be spending a fortune on all these sites, but it must be paying him well!  So Thayer Learning Center is owned by this man?

A former WWASPS employee?  Looks like he's into his own "vengeance" with a vengeance!  What an ugly way to live.  Sounds like he was fired, just a guess, though.

In the above thread someone said he was a close friend of someone at WWASPS.  If so, why doesn't he refer to any of the WWASPS schools?  WHY??  because they wouldn't pay him to do so.  That's why he and all other educational consultants don't, and then lie about why they don't refer to them.

Jesus warned of those who would come in His name, but not be of Him.  It is wise to check out the schools before sending kids there.  However, one must keep in mind, that just because there are those who use the Lord's name for ill-gotten gain, there are those who use the Lord's name for righteousness.  There are very good schools that are Christian based and that do strive to emulate Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:11  "and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people."

Mark 13:21-23  "At that tiime if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ? or, 'Look, there he is?' do not believe it.  For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect - if that were possible.  So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time."

II Peter 2:1-3  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.  They will secretly introduce destrucive heresies, even denying the soverign Lord who bought them-bringing swift destruction on themselves.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up.  

It is unhelpful to stereotype all of these places for troubled teens as being bad.  Yes, there are abuses that take place.  The people who do the abusing should be executed.  No problem.

There are those, however, that do help the teens without being abusive and without restraints.  

Just because you wouldn't put your child there, doesn't make it wrong for everyone.  It may be wrong to you, but that doesn't make it wrong.

While there are those who may feel that putting one's child in such a program, there are those who feel that not getting help is abuse.

There is no shame in admitting help is needed.  There is shame in needing help and being too arrogant to get it.

Proverbs 12:15  The way of a fool seems right to hikm, but a wise man listens to advice.

Proverbs 14:6  The mocker seeks wisdom and finds none, but knowledge comes easily to the discerning.

What do the above bible verses have to do with people "using" Christian based to bring in kids for their own profit?  This whole concept of Christian based is a mask in many troubled teen programs.  If the owner wasn't an internet spammer in the worst sense, then he might have some credibility.  I'm shocked in a sense that there are SO MANY sites he is associated with that are misleading parents in crisis.  

Everyone has a right to believe in something greater than themselves, if that's the right verbage.  But, that doesn't mean these owners are greater than anyone, except in internet sites!

They have private time to read the bible or study guide the parents supply.  They have no visiting pastor and as far as spiritual writing, they are NOT allowed to have any writing journal you may send to your child.
