Know what the really messed up part of those rehabilitation centers is? They are working on the wrong person.

Most of the kids who get sent to those end up with the same behaviors. Because the problem is almost never the kid. It's the parents.

My guess is they didn't "try everything." They only wanted to change her. They had no interest in learning how their parenting mistakes were exacerbating the problems.

I'm glad she left home and found her own way. No thanks to them.

Sad about the nightmares. I can relate. I lived through some horrific abuses and the nightmares have never ended. I keep hoping maybe one day.

Thanks for posting this, Gillian. Might just have to watch it now. :)
