My name is Austin and my experience has been great. The houseparents are really nice and the assistant counselors are really easy to build a relationship with and are really nice too.
I have learned to handle my consequences better and also learn to take my anger out in better ways. They also have taught me how to be more assertive in communicating my feelings and needs with others. The one thing that has helped me the most is the way they handle the way I can get disrespectful when I do not like something.
I think the program will help me raising my own children one day because I will know how to give them reasonable consequences. I feel like this program will make me a good parent.
