495. Jump Up Internet Rescue School, South Korea

Yet another camp targeted against minors who use too much time on their computers instead of being with their parents who for some reason are not even there anyway was in the media in 2007.

It was labeled as the first but in reality such camps popped up in a lot of countries around that time. The deaths started to happen a year later. Forcing untrained children into exercise without proper medical supervision will kill some and they did.

We got no reports of death in this specific camp but in general they are unregulated and the question everyone ask. Will parents be able to demand the level of exercise of themselves that they put their children up for when they sign their children over to the instructors? Do they even know what they order for their children?

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.


272. Zhengzhou Boqiang New Idea Life Training School

Zhengzhou Boqiang New Idea Life Training School has marketed itself as a cure against the so-called Internet Addiction Disorder, which was introduced as an illness after pressure from the troubled teenage Industry so they could get more clients.

The methods to cure this so-called illness is punishment, isolation from peers and family and if it doesn’t cure the illness – pure violence.

A 19 year old girls lost her life at this boarding school may 2014.

It is safe to say that it is not a fun place to be for a teenager.


111. Hongkai Education and Training School – China

On Youtube you can watch how parents in China (and now elsewhere) can send their child to a school in Jinan, China so they don’t spend that much time on the Internet. The so-called diagnose called “Internet Addiction Disorder” has been accepted as something people can make money on and when money is involved then it is OK to label children.

Spending at least 4 months offline without being able to maintain your network which is vital for your future career is certainly not fun for any teenager.


53. Guangxi Qihang Survival Training Camp

Yet another camp, yet another attempt to cure the so-called Internet Addiction Discorder, Yet another death.

Guangxi Qihang Survival Training Camp was nothing special compared to other camps claiming to be able to cure the so-called illness.

And as it is the case this was also a place where a teenager lost his life. Deng Senshan was only 16 years old when they killed him off.

It does not sound like a fun place for a teenager.

52. Chinese Anti-traditional Education Training Center

Chinese Anti-traditional Education Training Center was marketed as a cure for the funny “decease” called Internet Addiction Disorder. Of course there is no such decease. It is only something which was been invented so some guys can earn money.

The place was shut down by the authorities, but not before a stay left the only 14 year old known as Liang Liang in critical condition.

It does not sound like a fund place to be as a teenager.


51. Tianhai Boot Camp School

Internet Addiction!!

It is a kind of funny diagnose. It was actually something people saw as a prank, but as always when there is money to make on curing people of a “decease”, you bet the doctors will start to label the patients.

How do you cure Internet Addiction? According to Chinese doctors who were the first to enter this area, electric shock, hard exercise, corporal punishment and various drugs is the answer.

For 14 year old Yao Jian the cure led to his death. Tianhai Boot Camp School does not sound like a fun place to be for a teenager.

His parents were awarded 350,000 yuan (US$51,000) in compensation but that does not ease their pain.


29. Beiteng School

An article stated:

Chen Shi, 16, died two days after enrolling in Beiteng School in Changsha, capital of central China’s Hunan province, having been beaten up when he refused to run during training

You cannot control how much your child is on the Internet. If you try this could be the result. I have learned that a number of Danish boarding schools called “Efterskoler” are trying to isolate their students for a week. I guess that the parents will have to pay for counseling when the year is over because banning Internet, Facebook and cell phones – that is just cruel.
