total, adolescent institution...Jamaica style

If your kid (11-17) misbehaves and you got the $$, send him/her to "Tranquility Bay" for some rehab. From the Guardian UK article:

"When you have a teenager on the rampage, who are you going to turn to? In America, parents send their troubled offspring to Jamaica's Tranquility Bay
- a 'behaviour-modification centre' which charges $40,000 a year to 'cure' them. Decca Aitkenhead, the first journalist to gain access to the centre in five years, wonders if there isn't too high a price to pay.
