Question: What is a person thinking when they are released from prison? By: Larry Lawton

Answer: After appearing on FOX News Orlando Saturday and Sunday discussing this issues I thought I would give some insight into what goes on in a person’s mind right before they leave prison.

After being incarcerated for X amount of years a person getting out of prison feels anxiety, fear, lack of trust and a number of other issues like what will I do for a living, how will I eat, where will I live, relationship stress, etc.  The latter part of what I wrote can be addressed and usually is to a degree.

The hardest part is the fear, anxiety and lack of trust for authority. It takes time, help from loved ones, help from trusted non-family members and help from the system itself. Sadly, the system is part of the problem and my goal is to change the system to help prevent future victims, the ex-offenders and all taxpayers because ultimately we all pay the price for failing to help ex-offenders readjust to society.

The Bully – By: Larry Lawton

questionQuestion: I fear my son is becoming the bully, not the victim?

Answer: Bullying is not just associated with boys, yes, even girls bully. All kids go through a time when they feel defensive or inadequate which is usually associated with low self esteem. Most kids either act aggressive towards others or try to find someone they can feel superior towards. Hence; Bullying! First off, have them watch the Reality Check Program DVD. They will see where being a bully will get them.  In a a place they don’t want to go. Secondly, time spent with a son or daughter who is acting like a bully is priceless. Communication is the key. Find out what is really bothering your child. And lastly, it is all about LOVE. All people want to be loved. A hug and kind word goes a lot further then yelling and fighting.

Good Luck,

Larry Lawton

Teenager caught with a weapon – By: Larry Lawton

Reality Check Program Question and AnswerQuestion: I am a stay at home Mom and went through my 15 year old son’s dresser drawer and found a knife. He said it was something everyone carried. I am very concerned. What do I do?

Answer: First I would like to applaud you for going through your sons dresser draw. A lot of parents think that is an invasion of their son or daughters privacy. NOT! You have the right and should go through cell phones, computers, and anything else you feel you need to go through to watch over your son or daughter.

Parents have to get it through their heads they are not their kid’s friend, they are their parent. There will be plenty of time for friendship when they are older. What I mean by “not” being your son or daughters friend, I mean you have to make the decisions that will help them through the tough teen years. When a child makes a Read More »
