936. Shirley Oaks Children’s Home / Lambeth children’s home

Lambeth children’s home also known as Shirley Oaks Children’s Home was in operation from 1903 to 1982. The responsible owner was London Borough of Lambeth. So far 1887 victims have been identified having been suffering various forms of abuse.

The investigation has been subjected to attempts of having it covered up, properly due to the ownership which could affect the careers of politicians, who basically have neglected their duties to supervise the facility.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child and have been subjected to abuse.

935. Herlufsholm

The boarding school was founded in 1565 as a a boarding school for “sons of noble and other honest men”. It was a male-only boarding school until 1960 for day-students and since 1985 for the students attending the boarding school.

The students wear uniforms. There are special uniforms for Half Galla and Full Galla.

Over the years the prefect rule has been modified due to criticism. Older students spoke of a very strict ruleset being controlled by the prefects. Also the sleeping quaters has been the focus of the authorities. On several occasions students have been charged with rape. Only in one case was a student convicted. Numerous cases of bullying has been reported to the media and there have been produced a number of documentaries about the boarding school. The student body is for a large part been put together by children of the most wealthy families in Denmark. Lately even the Royal House of Denmark has sent students to the school but in wake of the revelations of the alleged abuse the Royal house of Denmark cut their ties with the school

Being victim of bullying and in some case attempted rape makes it safe to conclude that it not always can be fun to be there as a student.

934. WinGate Wilderness Therapy

WinGate Wilderness Therapy is located in Kanab, Utah. The operate on public land in parts of Utah. The teenagers detained at the wilderness program are sent to the program by their parents. Some reportedly transported by the programs in handcuffs and shackles.

During their detention in the program the teenagers are evaluated and if they fit the need random so-called treatment facilities claim to be able to fix, they are referred to those facilities when their stay at the wilderness program come to an end. Sometime referral fees are exchanged with these facilities as reward for a good profitable diagnosis.

The safety of the teenagers while partipating in the program can be at risk. One student got injuries when he was forced to participate in rock climbing which he had no training in. Over the years teenagers have died partipating in such programs. However, we have not found cases of death among the teenagers who have been detained at Wingate – yet.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

933. Hope Haven

Hope Haven located near New Orleans in Louisiana was founded in 1911 as  St. Vincent’s Hotel. The targetgroup was homeless men and boys. Over time it grew. Maybe the facility became too big to monitor as information now surface that a priest abused boys. The organization in charge at the time of the alleged abuse is the religious orders of Salesians of Don Bosco and School Sisters of Notre Dame as they are named in a lawsuit.

It would not be the first time lack of supervision results in abuse.

It sounds like it was not a fun place to be as a teenager.

932. Participant on the Dr. Phil show

Quiet a few teenagers found themselves being used as entertainment on the DR. Phil show. It is a show that criminalize the entire transition process from child to adulthood.

In Denmark where most of the authors come from, we have managed to provide the teenagers a safe environment where they can socialize over beer and wine. In fact teenagers in Denmark can buy alcohol on their own once they have turned 16 years of age as long as the alcohol percentage is below the safe level of 16.5. Providing the access to alcohol enables their ability to socialize and empathize the needs of the youth they drink with. Not but not least: Friday bars in school lowers the amount of students that drop out.

Do we have troubled youth in Denmark? Yes. Some neighborhoods seems to create crime. It is not bad upbringing but simply the truth in the old wording: “It takes a village to raise a child”.

That is why Denmark have the ghetto-plan. It a neighborhood creates troubled youth, it is labeled a ghetto. The local authorities have two years to fix the issue or they are ordered to tear the buildings down. It means that some people who did not commit crimes, will have to move which might sound a bit unfair but in the general interest of the society it must be so.

Most young Danes grow up questioning authority and in that way we as society ensure that we bring up innovative generations that can move boundaries.

The Dr. Phil show do the oppesite. The children are sent to boot camp styled ranches or even the dangerous wilderness therapy programs that have claimed the lives of more than 100 teenagers during the last couple of decades. They learn not to question authority which let them become victims of whatever person who is in charge. They never move boundaries and invent new things that benefit manhood.

Many see non-issues published nationwide and in a time where social media allows you to track only the youth but also friends and family, their participation defines their life. Regardless of the outcome of whatever prison-styled so-called treatment program they are sent to, they are labeled as they were before the program decades after the program they participated in, was broadcasted.

It cannot be fun to be on this show as a teenager. The only good thing is that Dr. Phil has decided that his time as pre-doctor on Television has come to an end.

927. Faderhuset

Faderhuset is a cult with roots in Denmark. Officially it has been disbanded but Danish new media have found traces of it located abroad in countries like the Czech republic where the Danish authorities cannot get an agreement with the local authorities to protect the children.

The cult was founded around 1990. They started a school in Copenhagen in 1994 which was closed by the Danish authorities due to the use of an ACE-based curriculum which is found as totally inadequate as curriculum in a civilized society like Denmark is.

They became involved in the political intrigue and basically used as tool by the authorities against Ungdomshuset which was a public house for youth culture in Denmark that was teared down resulting in citywide riots for a full week.

They etablished themselves in a village on the southern Danish island Lolland and took over a hotel in the village of Bandholm. When the local child protection services and the media became concerned about the welfare of the children, the cult declared itself closed and official dismantled. The hotel was sold and went bankrupt because the workers now had to be paid instead of serving for free for the good of the cult. However, the children disappeared and in 2019 the children was tracked to the Czech republic which is known to have housed cults like the infamous WWASP school Morava Academy before.

The Danish child protection services are investigating the cult but they live in protection in the Czech Repulic due to the local authorities lack of interests.

It cannot be fun to live in a cult like Faderhuset if you are a child.
