Some of these children are far too young to be in a place like this. They have FIVE year olds there. Wtf?

sad I've had to turn it off.

This is nuts....

TheBogQueen Wed 08-Oct-14 22:12:59

Can't watch it

RipMacWinkle Wed 08-Oct-14 22:14:14

I am pretty stunned to be honest. It's so extreme

PourquoiTuGachesTaVie Wed 08-Oct-14 22:18:02

I've watched things like this before where the residents/inmates or whatever they're called are out of control teenagers, but I didn't know they actually took children to these kinds of places. I'm gobsmacked any parent would allow or want this.

I thought the youngest was 10?

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:26:15

How could the child forgive the parent? (Disclaimer: don't know what the kids have fine, have just turned it on and it seems extreme!)

Dontlaugh Wed 08-Oct-14 22:28:04

Unless these children are all cooking meth in their parent's garages, then this is bonkers.
They look so YOUNG!
Bonkers.

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:28:25

They are endorsed by children's services?? The poor things have had three hours sleep!

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:28:51

And the senate!

PourquoiTuGachesTaVie Wed 08-Oct-14 22:29:01

In the intro it said these camps will take children as young as 5.

Dontwanttobeyourmonkeywench Wed 08-Oct-14 22:29:09

Bloody hell, the guy from the LA is nuts! Who makes kids stay wake for 52/72??? nuts!

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:29:29

See PTSD!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 08-Oct-14 22:29:36

If parents treated their kids like this in this country I reckon SS would remove them for emotional neglect and abuse.

Dontlaugh Wed 08-Oct-14 22:31:19

Spot on, Viva and rightly so. I've switched off.

Dontwanttobeyourmonkeywench Wed 08-Oct-14 22:31:58

Bloody hell! It's glorified kidnapping isn't it? Even though the parents have given consent it must be terrifying to be pulled out of the house and not know what's happening.

thornrose Wed 08-Oct-14 22:35:08

Surely the children will end up resenting their parents at the least, hating them at the worst? It's flaming barbaric.

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:36:26

She is putting him through this cos he is is gaming?!? No drugs no staying out just on his Xbox too much?

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:37:58

He is hardly an out of control teen!

thornrose Wed 08-Oct-14 22:38:03

Didn't they say it's the third time he's been? Then it's not working!

ladybird69 Wed 08-Oct-14 22:41:40

Hasn't seen this thread just started another one!
It's unbelievable. I watched one a few years ago and it treated kids behaviour and emotions. This is just pure bullying.

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:43:10

This is like a prison with the jumpsuits and wire?

Dontwanttobeyourmonkeywench Wed 08-Oct-14 22:43:40

At least Camp Consequence has the parents and kids together so it's not a case of the parents dumping and running. Still nuts though.

ChillyHeatwave Wed 08-Oct-14 22:44:12

Fuck! A year long??
