Way to go Mr. Glenn , keep it going , I remember a morning in church when my now 14yr old wanted to speak with you because he had an attitude/anger problem and after speaking that short time with you , he has been a total different person and that was over 5 yrs ago , he would make you proud now, we now have 6 kids , we have had 2 daughters since we attended church with yall , hope all is well with you and your family. Sincerely , Melissa & Aime Fedler

Just to be clear, there is no yelling at Camp Consequence. Yelling isn't necesssary when there are clear expectations and consequences for behavior. Once parents take the Empowered Parents class, they know that yelling is ineffective and just creates larger gaps in communication. The class is for parents and teaches the techniques of effective discipline, communication and rewards. It costs $150. Camp Consequence comes after the class and is the wake up call to kids that the rules are changing and that their parents are committed to saving the family. It also gives the kids a clear view of how good they have it at home and that they should appreciate it more. Now that camp is at Montgomery Correctional, it also gives them a preview of what their future could be if they continue letting anger and impulsiveness run their decisions. Camp costs $50. I took the class a year and a half ago and my daughter and I took the camp 2 weeks later. The results were instant in our family. No more yelling, no defiance and no school referrals. Grades are awesome and we have happiness in our home. Now we attend camp strictly as volunteers to help new families just starting the journey.
