The help we had been crying for was close at hand. Aug 04, 2008
reviewer: Bill Strudel from
My son has some mental and personal issues that made life challenging and even threatening for my wife. He was arrested twice for hitting her, and had been hospitalized too many times to count. Home was hell. Our Psychologist suggested Camp Consequence and we signed up for the next parenting class which was only a week later. We received a strong dose of hope on the first Friday night and by Sunday we were elated. The camp follows the parent training. My son said the camp did not work, but he strongly desires not to go back even as a helper. He has a chart on the refrigerator where the most minor act of disrespect or anger will cost him a point. He seldom loses any. He is not perfect, the devil and his disability keep working on him, but this program is a major influence on his actions and most importantly our responses to his actions. I think I learned a lot more about life from camp than he did. I have only missed two since we went almost two years ago and in the process I found a fantastic church home in one of our parental meeting sites, First Coast Christian Center. I am now very close with God and my son. Again I warn he is not the perfect child. He is a respectful and more considerate teen than he started out two years ago, and now I only occasionally think of kicking him out of his birthday in September. One last word for parents whose children are wonderful and are doing well. I heard there are some out there. I think this program will set a great baseline for them and you and your spouse. One of the worst problems between my wife and I were our parenting style differences. The program preceeding Camp Consequence goes a long way toward uniting the home team in the battle to make our children the kind of adults we hope we model. The parenting goups that follow camp make you the parent you wished you had, or if your parents were great, you will be even greater. Invest a couple of weekends in this program and even the best of families will be made stronger.
