Where parents drop off their children because they can't deal with them.

Funny thing...My mom dropped me off at this place when I was 14 years old because I was drinking and smoking pot.  Now I work for them.  They know about it and actually it made them favor me because of the challenges I have overcome and I could relate to the kids who come in on some level.

Anywho, I ran away from the place to go hang out with friends anyway and didn't stay, that is how bad I was. 

What would your kid have to do to make you consider dropping them off where someone else will take care of them???


**I will add, its a 28 day program.  If you don't go home after 28 days you must leave for a day and thenn come back.  The goal is to get them back at home and hope they see that this life is harder than listening to the rules your parents set.  If they don't go back or leave for a day, they are taken to a group home :(
