    Their r lots of children out there that HAVE been abused as a child & it does affect ur life! There r plenty of adults who were abused as children going way back in generations & they continue the cycle by doing the same to the children. There r true disorders that affect people. Not everyone has them but U never know who does & medicates to keep it in order.

    Well spoken!! There is a "disorder" for everything nowadays. Oppositional Defiant Disorder: not a real diagnosis-just a bad kid doing what they want to do. The same thing spills over into adulthood and only gets worse. They then start using insanity as an excuse or "I was abused as a child" or "the devil made me do it". It's time people took responsibility for their own actions and stop all this nonsense. Thsi should start at an early age. PS: I don't want to work today so I"ll have an "Over Worked and Under Paid Disorder" today.

    My outlook on children today is not good. These hard to handle children are brought into a world today where parents have no control, schools have no control. Some have been raised by addicts, sexual abusers and yet the system still does not punish harsh enough. Think about in the older days, (1920's thru 1980's), we were all raised with respect of our elders, were given chores or required to get a job if we wanted something, and stayed in school. My heart goes out to these children who have had the rough road in life, but sometimes it takes a smart child to overcome what life sheltered out and make the most out of theirs.

    To t.high - Oppositional defiant what??? There's an excuse (disorder) for everything these days. It used to be called a rebellious teenager that needed to be taken to the wood shed for some serious attitude adjustments......strict parental control works in most cases.

    I had a cousin in this same treatment center. What options do these kids give the authorities and the facility staff? No one made her run away this was the choice she made. How else do you expect the authorities to report missing persons by going door to door? If you don't have a rebellious teen in your family or know of one you should not speak on this subject. I know what types of kids are in this treatment center. They are living better than you can imagine. My cousin was diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder just in case you don't know the symptoms of this disorder it is commonly known as "doing what you want to do", not what is right. By the way they did not give her last name that is for confidential reasons.
