Are you going to send your kids to the hardship camps, if any?

It is said, children brought up in poor families are more mature to share the responsibility, as seen in the 2008 earthquake in southwest china. There are camps for spoiled children. They are sent by their parents in the attempt to get them changed through hardships. Do you think it a proper way? Are you going to send your kids there to ask others to help your parenting?

Parents are partly responsible for the way their kids behave. Sending the kids to hardship camps may send a message that the kids are completely responsible for their behaviour. I have spoken to quite a few spoiled kids and managed to understand them. In my country we have three months National Service Camps. Names are chosen at random from a list of students who have completed their Malaysian Certificate of Examination. Those chosen must attend. Exceptions are made for special cases. Most of those who have attended the camps were in favour. So do the parents. Among other things they were trained in forging and developing friendships, and in teamwork. In addition they received an allowance. I too are in favour of this type of training camps. all the best, rosdimy

Well i think I've seen that in Discovery Channel sometime ago. i feel sorry for the kids but again I cannot blame the parents because the children I see there are really brats and are disrespectful of their parents already that is why they are sent there to learn responsibility and respect for elders. For some reasons I guess it really depends on the culture of each society. i think if you do that in other places it would be different how they would solved such kind of a problem.
