Re: Any good RTCs or therapeutic schools out there?

Dear "Terrified Parent",

I'm sorry you felt "attacked" by a message that simply explained that institutionalizing children is illegal, unethical, and a form of abuse. That's all true and supported by the facts.

I believe you are not legitimately seeking assistance or feedback and are trying to find support for your own awful choices in regards to your family with your post.

Instead of looking at the facts and being reasonable, you react emotionally and made demands on others that owe you nothing. This is clearly an attitude that has caused problems in your family and something you should get mental help to address instead of scapegoating your son and sending him to a modern day orphan asylum.

The number of children placed in residential treatment centers (or RTCs)1 is growing exponentially.2 These modern-day orphanages now house over 50,000 children nationwide.3 Children are packed off to RTCs, often sent by officials whom they have never met and who have probably never spoken to their parents, teachers or social workers.4 Once placed, these kids may have no meaningful contact with their families or friends for up to two years.5 And, despite many
documented cases of physical and sexual abuse and neglect, monitoring is inadequate to ensure that children are safe, healthy and receiving proper services in RTCs.6 Source:

You are privately making your child an orphan by doing this. If you want to destroy your relationship with your child and end up in an abusive residential nursing home when you are elderly, by all means keep this up.

But, I think based on your response claiming sharing information and facts equate to an "attack" show that you are not a legitimate parent with a legitimate inquiry, but, a troll seeking to create drama on a forum that is run by a victim's rights organization. Go troll somewhere else.
