Military Schools

How many parents have threatened that if their kids don’t behave properly, they will send them off to military school?

With the access that kids have to information these days via the Internet, they can find out if military schools do indeed exist and what they are like. In fact, a little research shows that there are many military school and boarding school options for parents of teens with behavior problems so indeed the children can confirm that this is a credible threat with undesirable results for them.

Kids today are used to heretofore unimagined amounts of self-directed free leisure time. Military schools, of course, are not big on free time as they offer highly structured environments. That fact alone, would make most kids want to stay away from them. However, that is not to say that those same kids wouldn’t benefit greatly from the structured time and rules-intensive atmosphere of a military school or boarding school.
