Do Military Schools for Troubled Boys Really Help? Maybe Not. So, Where Can My Troubled Boy Find Real, Lasting Help?
Are you a parent of a troubled boy and don’t know what to do? Is your teen spinning out of control, rebellious, defiant, stealing, involved in substance abuse, trouble with the law, or maybe he’s been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, or ODD? If your answer is “Yes,” then Agapé can help, and probably better than a traditional military school. Agapé is the complete solution that offers discipline, counseling, mentoring, trades training and real help for troubled boys, including team sports, an awesome ranch facility and a fully accredited school.
Military schools for troubled boys are built on intimidation by drill sergeants, but Agapé offers counseling, mentoring and Christian love instead. Make no mistake, our school is secure and highly disciplined, but the boys who come here are turned into men by a loving, respectful, and a well-balanced approach that has lasting impact on the boy’s life and actions.
Military schools are unable to properly turn around the behaviors of students that are defiant, manipulative, or that might need spiritual help or emotional therapy. In fact, some would argue that the disciplinary nature of military schools without working on underlying emotional or spiritual problems could prove a disservice to troubled boys and harden their thinking and actions. Although the boy might begin to show an improvement in behavior when under the strict supervision of the school (usually out of fear or punishment), parents will often see a complete reversal a few weeks after the boy returns home.
Agapé provides intervention and a year-long transformational program that turns troubled boys into respectful and motivated young leaders. We’re different from military schools because we offer a long-term solution without scaring, screaming and intimidating boys like military schools do.
