    Question Too Harsh?

    Advertisements
    I was telling a friend from work the other day about a job I worked at in college.
    It was at a boarding school for troubled teen girls. They had been in trouble for anything from drugs and underage drinking and going to jail. Or their parents thought they were having sex too young or not getting good enough grades.

    Anyway at the school when the girls got there they were "level 1" and some of the rules were

    No Shoes (It is harder to run away with no shoes)
    No salt, pepper, katsup or mustard for food (those were privlages)
    hair always in a low pony tail if it was long enough
    No phone calls to or from parents (unless it was an emergency)
    No social speaking with any of the other girls
    Ask permission for anything from getting a tissue to throwing away a piece of paper


    My friend thought those rules were almost child abuse....what do you think?

    I don't think that's child abuse. I think it's discipline. Those girls were there for a reason. I'm assumming that with good behavior came rewards like getting ketchup and mustard and stuff?

    I'm not sure I understand the ponytail thing except though. Was it so that they would all lookthe same?

    Wow...I would cry every night if I was there

    They couldn't wear shoes? Or they could? That's kind of gross if they couldn't even wear shoes.

    ETA: I don't think it is child abuse. I think it is just discipline. Those girls went there for a reason.

    I did not work there for long, I quit the day a girl was in the "intervention room" (a room with a bed and thats all) for not obeying the rules and telling other staff she was going to kill her self, and I suggested that her parents be called because she had other issues the school could not deal with, all she did all day was sit on the floor pick at the carpet and eat it

    The level 1's only wore stockings
    level 2's could wear flip-flops
    then level 3-5's could wear shoes
