In 1999 Valessa Robinson was risking being jailed at a private Christian farm called Steppin Stone Farm. On Facebook many of the former inmates from this farm has spoken about their ordeal which have left them emotional scarred for life.
The media attention given the Valessa Robinson case should have warned parents from interfering in the life of their children, but sadly it hasn't been so.
Now we learn that the teenager from the present was sent to a private boot camp styled program by his mother and the hatred he learned at the program had caused him to kill his mother while his little brother was sleeping in another room.
We must urge parents to let their children choose their own path, even if this path leads them down the wrong road. No family deserves to become part of tragedies like we have seen in the cases mentioned above.
