I was in an intake home, a "long term treatment" home which also took in open custody kids and a independant living home which was hell on earth.

Why were you in a group home?  I used to work in a group home but these weren't kids that would be able to write about their experience one day...

thankgiving was the same as pretty much any other day.  Christmas most of the kids went to their parents house to visit.  I would just chill and enjoy some time to myself and getting to be alone for once.  One of the homes used to have a big christmas party and invite all the parents and social workers on boxing day. It was kind of nice.

In the intake home I was treated well, although I was restrained 4x.  The long term home was good, although a lot of things went down and shit happened there, but none of it from the staff, the staff was fantastic.  The last home, no it was bad.  Very bad.

I'm sorry :(  We had some aggression issues with my son last year and that was one of the options that was offered to us.  No way in hell did I trust someone else taking care of my son!
