Regardless of the level, the parents can talk with a staff member once a week regarding the progress of sculpture the intended ideal of a personality.

They use visits home as a kind of probation to see if child is programmed correctly and when the child is released to his or her family it is done on a basis of a home contract, which outlines the rules the child will live by until adulthood and beyond unless the child wants to risk being sent back or live on the street if the former detainee are over 18 at the time where the home contract is violated.
