Children's Home Of Wyoming Conference Reviews
I was there for 2 yrs. was it an amazing experience? no... however they gave me great tools to live my life. yes it is for children with coping and behavioral problems. but to say it is horrible or causes depression or any other mental issues is unfair! I myself was a very angry 15 yr old. by the time I was released I could hold my tongue, control my temper and help other troubled youth! im sorry, but if this school doesn't help your child, it's because they didn't stay long enough to get real help for the original problems! I strongly recommend it for anyone that needs help for their child!!! I am now a well mannered, thoughtful and productive member of society. that did not have a child until 31 and has never been a part of the "welfare class". instead of being a drain on our economy and a teenage mom. that's all I have to say. I couldn't help but put my 2 cents in because I was a student and I think a rather successful one at that! good day and god bless.
Lack'd up thats funny. My son had been residing there for awhile and now is Going there just for schooling. It is far from Jail (lock'd Up). This program isnt supose to be fun and games it is run to hopfully guide your child down a better path. For your child to be sent there means there has to be issues in the first place.....
My son was ordered to be sent there for 90 days evaluation by Oswego County Family Court, Judge Hafner in the late 1990's. He was 14 years old at the time and had minor behavioral issues at school. After serving his 90 days for an evaluation he came home and when asked about his experiences there, my son would only say that "You can't even begin to imagine how horrible it was there, it was bad, real bad, I would rather die than have to go back to Wyoming Conference." My son still refuses to talk about what happened to him during his time there and his behavior following his stay at Wyoming Conference was much worse. Given the chance to go back in time and make a different choice, I would fight tooth and nail to keep my son out of that place, even if it ruined us financially. My son's mental and psychological evaluations done there showed him to have no signs of mental illness, but when he returned home, he seemed to have gained several mental and psychological issues including depression and rage.
i was sent there by the judge because of my behavioral actions it was the worst 3years of my life being lock'd up with kids that were worse then me
ABSOLUTELY WORST MISTAKE I HAVE EVER MADE SENDING MY CHILD TO THE DAY TREAMENT PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM SOUNDED TO BE TO GOOD TO BE TRUE.....AND IT WAS. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANY PARENT WHO HAS A SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD, IT IS A SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN WITH BEHAVIORAL ISSUES ONLY. IF THAT IS THE CASE THIS SCHOOL COULD BRING GREAT SUCCESS FOR YOUR CHILD.
It is a wonderful school I went there they were the best years of my life!
