  • My brother in law was sent to a military prep academy as a teen and was kicked out. I think they have really backed off the harshness now, but they used to wake them up to swim the lakes until they would almost drown, do push-ups in the rain and mud, etc. He used to go every summer and I know he was kicked out at least once.

  • So your comparing boot camp to duct taping your child to the toilet ( to get a break)?!?!

    Only serious reply's please! Thanks!

  • I'm think a military prep academy is a little different then a boot camp. I don't believe you can get kicked out of a boot camp.

  • I think I once when joking with my son told him I would... but I don't think I ever really would... than again him being 15, I've joked I'll duct tape him to the toilet (so he can potty) to get a break (all in fun nothing serious)
