If your teen is heading down the wrong path, then you may want to consider enrolling him or her in a boot camp. Boot camps give teens the discipline and structure that they need to get on the right track and become responsible adults.  However, it is very important for you to make sure that you select the right boot camp for your child. Below are some questions that you will need to ask when you are choosing a boot camp:

What Are Your Credentials?

All boot camps are not created equal. That is why you want to make sure that you perform thorough research before you put your child in boot camp.

You also want to make sure that you take the time to ask the administrators about the credentials that they possess. Where did the staff members receive their training? How long did it take for them to complete their training? Those are two additional questions that you may want to consider asking. Parent Resources will help you find accredited boot camps that have highly-trained staff.

What Is The Success Rate of This Boot Camp?

The whole purpose of sending your teen to boot camp is to allow him or her to get the help that is necessary for getting back on the right track. It is important to remember that some boot camps have a higher success rate than others. How many teens successfully complete boot camp? How many teens try to run away or escape? How many teens come back to the facility? Those are some of the questions that will allow you to gauge the effectiveness of a boot camp. Parent Resources can help you find a boot camp that has a very high success rate.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of attending camp can vary greatly. However, boot camps are typically very expensive. That is why you want to make sure that you ask about cost before you sign your child up for boot camp. You should not go into debt paying for your child’s boot camp. Parent Resources will help you find a boot camp that will fit your budget and your teen’s needs.

Finding the right boot camp for your teen can be hard, but if you take the time to evaluate the credentials, success rate and cost, then it will be a lot easier for you to make the right choice. Give us  a call for a free consultation.
