Review for Young Marines, Dumfries, VA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Young Marines Is a great program But it has a good and bad side the good part is that there is great structure for kids and does provide discipline and can show children strong and persevering skills. The downside is the preferential treatment of the staffs children. Now i feel that they do do a lot to earn there positions but there are some that aren't higher rank that will try to control your kids in a very unhealthy way showing controlling behavior that is completely against there code of conduct and completely get away with it like if they're parent is the president of of the parents support group Which isnt fair to others This can be a somewhat mentally abusive program for these reasons. Parents are a click in this organization and have to much power that can spoil the program for the kids This organization also has no business serving food to children as well there are no regulations to keep things sanitized so there is noone checking temps on food and noone is keeping track of allergies some food has i pet hair all through it with animal hair. The parental structure of this program is very flawed. My best suggestion is to never leave your childern unsupervised with these people if they were just men and women in uniform these things would not be happening but when you get a bunch of the parents involved there is to much petty behavior and you as a parent really have to tolerate alot if you dont want to be apart of the click and remember all parents want there kids to be the best and earn the most So There is 50% more competitive behavior since the parents are involved not all troops are the same but something really needs to be done
