  9. alisha Taylor Sat, Dec 10 2011 11:04 AM

    My son is in there his been in trouble since he has went there and has been enabled to make calls are get visits . I don't know much about the place but what i have read the staff talk down on tour children . And my son was not sent there to be made worse. He was sent to be helped, i don't like the fact that his been down there almost 2mos and i haven't been able to see him. I think them worker need to respect them as they would they own children . If you wouldn't speak to your that why don't trea t other peoples children bad. True enough the are there because they have issues but it still doesn't mean you have to miss treat them if you there for a pay check only you are there for all the wrong reason and i think you would find a new job.

    People that send our kids there like the courts systems the DJJ workers and the social workers Their kids need to be put in there and maybe get the feeling all of us parents have so they woukdnt send them their. There should be some agency that goes and inspects the way the staff is at this lincoln village& someone should do something about this. If anyone has information about something i could do please post something back. Their kids not animals&they shouldnt be treated liked this! Thanks.

  11. Concerned Thu, Jan 05 2012 10:57 PM

    somebody should be checking the school systems by the way they lie about things to get these poor kids in trouble. Instead of ruinig kids lifes like they have been doing. Sending kids to this place isnt going to help them one bit by the way people talk about this place. Its ridicious! & ssomething should be done! I hope the people that sent these poor kids there get whats comming to them because God himself said "You don't mistreat his children." & karma will come back on these horrible people.

  16. Mentor&Coach Thu, Dec 20 2012 8:33 AM

    I called the Lincoln Village inquiring as to visiting procedures and communicating with a young man that was sent therel. The individual answering the telephone was rude, abrasive and to say the least didn't sound very smart. I asked questions and he only kept saying parents and legal gardians. I have heard of various kinds of abuse from the staff of this institution and I actually plan on writing to the the Kentucky Department of Corrections and have some type of investigation started. The children that are forced to have to go to this Juvenile facility are grossly misunderstood for the most part and need someone to talk to them as opposed to talking at them. There is a difference. One of the parents of the young man I was inquiring about went there to get information on her sons condition and what she as a parent needs to do and was treated really bad. Public etiquette is a must in every sector of society and when you have to deal with the public there should be rules that all have to abide by. I hope the treatment of the children sent to this institution is mad public real soon so that the state will start monitoring them and make them act like adults and nots more childish than those they are hired to look after.

  18. disgusted Fri, Jul 26 2013 1:42 AM

    If you all are so knowledgeable about how to properly discipline and care for children, then why are your children being locked up. When kids don't get consequences at home, they usually do end up in a facility. Most of the time it's not just the kids' fault, it has a lot to do with the parenting, or lack thereof, that they receive. Discipline your kids at home and they won't have to go there. If they're out of control to where you can't, then they need to be someplace that will teach them to respect authority and the rules. I hear a lot of making excuses for their poor behavior and I'm sure that's a big reason they are in trouble now. If you make your bed, you better be prepared to lie in it!!

  19. badboy Tue, Oct 07 2014 12:37 PM

    The village is a very fucked up place. The staff treat us like shit, and the food fucking sucks. I believe that the place needs to be shut down. I was sent there for a week, for running away from foothills academy. Both, of these places suck. They are all the time picking on kids. All I got to say to them all is "sick my dick"
