Anyone else catch this new show? The premise; parents taking uncontrollable at risk kids and forcing them to go to a dessert camp run especially to help with intervention. A repeat episode and a new episode played tonight back to back on ABC. It's an interesting program, and some very unruly and wild kids are already responding to the tough love therapy.

I have some concerns over this kind of "intervention". I live in Utah and there have been numerous "boot camp" type programs in this state for at-risk kids. Unfortunately, several programs have experienced the death or severe injury to the child they were supposed to be "fixing".

 

Some people feel these programs are nothing less than legalized child abuse.

 

Personally, I believe many kids would benefit from a structured environment. But I think there is the potential for abuse.

 

But, I could support a program that has adequate supervision and safeguards.
