Why Boot Camps Don’t Work
Parents might consider boot camps or military schools for the troubled daughter in a desperate attempt to try to teach discipline, respect and responsibility when all else has failed.
Unfortunately, studies show that many boot camps do little more than bring about temporary behavior compliance in troubled teens and often do not bring about permanent, lasting changes in attitudes or behaviors. This is because most boot camps or military schools are not designed to be therapeutic programs.
As a result, they often are not equipped to address the underlying behavioral or emotional problems that are causing out-of-control behaviors in troubled teens. A real concern with the military school or boot camp approaches are they can sometimes make emotional problems worse for teens — especially those struggling with self esteem, eating disorders, self-injury, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other disorders.
