GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN, ETC.

Posted by OFFICER FRIENDLY on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, In : Legal Issues 

Tell the kids: "Here are some areas we're going to start working with you over the next few weeks or until you've learned more pro-social and positive habits. If you refuse to comply and work on your thinking and behavior, we will put zero's on your Conextions paperwork. This may delay getting higher stages, chances are you may increase your stay, you'll have NO priviliges, and when sent to Security you'll be gone from the dorm for a matter of days, not hours. If you still continue to refus...

New Paradigm Shift?

Another missed opportunity to do the right thing...

NEW DIRECTIVE:  The kids are to sleep under their sheets.  OK... we tell them this, a number of times.  They KNOW the expectation.  BUT... there's problems.

Do the 2-10 JCO staff monitor this when they can watch them all go to bed at 9:00?  I'D say yes, it's their responsibility.  So, by 10:00 the kids who have chosen not to sleep between the sheets can be appropriately consequenced (at the on duty JCO staff/s discretion) for their behavior......

The good, the bad, and the ugly...

The upside of the situation is if I just absolutely can't stand working at TYC, I can quit.  This would keep me from getting unemployment... but that's allright.  I might have to go lean for a while, sure, but my mental health, marriage, physical health, safety etc are pretty important to me, at least!  So I'll do what I gotta do to keep my job while I'm still employed and when the time is right, move on to others things with an amicable parting of ways.

The downside of working for TYC is they...

The above link is yet ANOTHER missed opportunity, indeed.  Can we aff...

NOT A PRETTY SITE

Posted by JCOfficer on Monday, July 11, 2011, In : Legal Issues 
No, there's nothing much positive to say today.

It's probably a GOOD THING that a blog post I'd just been writing on got poofed out into the ether after I got a little trigger-happy on the mouse and blitzed it off to never-never land.  I was getting just a WEE BIT testy there towards the en d... and while I can never hit all those exact same keys in the exact same order, below is the gist of what I had written. Enjoy, and keep posted.  Sure there will be more fairly soon. GRRR.  Topics include...

About Me


Officer Friendly I'm here to help the kids, but it isn't easy. The little Joe Delinquent's we have to deal with 24/7 have gotten out of hand lately, and it's getting harder and harder to keep being firm, fair and consistant. I'm doing the best I can!
