Beyond Scared!!!
18 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent first season, Second season is going on right now. Putting teens 12-18 through H-E-L-L to get them to Straighten up from Drugs, crime,violence,etc....

teens do not know that life behind bars is so bad, until they experience life behind bars. So the parents of the teens put them through an Prevention/intervention basically to get them to straighten up.

The strong content featured here, which includes cursing ("b--ch," "s-- t"), threatening, and discussions of criminal behavior, is offered within the specific context of helping young people.

I loved it! watching that show with my kids was great it gave both me and my kids a reality check Betty in Atlanta,Ga

The best way to change kids What i feel is that even though crude words are being used, kids these days are starting to use them even if parents think their kids don't. The country i'm staying does not have a jail that's anything like these, and maybe that's why the troublemakers here do not learn. No matter the crude words, violence, whatsoever, i really feel that this is one of the best ways to turn a kid's life around, especially if he/she has a chance of being jailed. Sitting at home watching this would not be as effective as getting it in real life. Charlotte in Greenbay,WI

This program has scared the wits out of teens across the country.
