Are you searching for Military Schools for your troubled teen in Tallahassee, FL?

oakridgeMany parents are under the misconception that Military Schools for teens that are struggling in their traditional school environment or a private school setting. Maybe they are acting out at home, have become defiant, using drugs, hanging out with a negative peer group and escalating out of control. Unfortunately this is a myth believing that Military Schools are a viable option for troubled teens.

The majority of Military Schools are a privilege to attend. You may find a few that will accept your at-risk teen, but keep in mind, they typically have policies in place for behavioral issues that are not much different than the school you are leaving. One difference will be that when (or if) your child is expelled or asked to leave, it is highly probable you will forfeit your tuition. Military Schools annual fees approximately are $25,000.00 and up. We have heard from many families that have fallen into this trap – and it an expensive mistake to make, but more than that, you are setting your teen up for failure.

DistraughtFamilyWhen you have a teen that is belligerent, underachieving, lacks motivation, has lost interest in their favorite activities, changing friends and becoming secretive or withdrawn, these can be red flags that there is more going on internally (emotionally) than what Military School would be able to provide. Military Schools are not a therapeutic or clinical setting. They will not be able to help your son or daughter with the problems that are causing this negative behavior. Or if they are using drugs or drinking at home, it is likely they will continue this behavior at Military School too. These are open campuses.

My son graduated a Military School. I am a huge advocate of Military Schools, as a matter of fact, I had two other relatives in my family graduate Military School. Students attending Military Schools generally have to have a very good GPA and many require the potential student to write an essay about why they want to enroll in that particular school. The other factor is the student has to be a willing participant. A parent can attempt to force their son or daughter, but let’s go back to how they can be expelled or asked to leave for breaking policies – and you swiftly will lose your tuition. My son would tell me frequently how students would be expelled for smoking pot or drinking. Yes, it happens.

Parent’s Universal Resource Experts (P.U.R.E.™) is a service to parents and families to assist them with Parent Awareness regarding Therapeutic Boarding Schools, Residential Treatment Centers and Teen Help Programs for troubled teens in Tallahassee, FL. This industry is extremely competitive and can be very confusing. The “desperate parent” is at high risk of making wrong decisions that may be detrimental to you and your child. Since we were once in that position, we want you to take comfort in the fact that you are not alone and give you the opportunity to learn from our experiences and more importantly, gain from our knowledge.

Researching can be time consuming and tedious, yet very important. How do you know if a program or school is right for your child or if they really are who they claim to be? We speak from our hearts and our experiences to give you a feeling of ease. Restricting your search to a geographical area limits your chances of finding the right placement for your child. We encourage you to review what is best for your child, not what is closest to home.

We help educate parents especially when the Internet can leave you more confused and stressed out. Simply understanding that a Military School may not benefit your son or daughter is the first step in getting them the right help they need emotionally.

ParentsTalkingTeensWe believe in finding a positive and encouraging setting for children. Placing a negative child into a negative environment can usually build resentment and anger, especially to the family that placed them there. Peer pressure in today’s society is making it very difficult for our children. Let’s help them, not punish them. P.U.R.E.™ believes in bringing families back together…
