It is extremely difficult for a gang member to get out once he or she has been initiated. If your child is already in a gang, don't try to handle the situation on your own. You may think that by moving or sending your child to live with relatives in a small town, you can get your child out, but gangs have a long reach, and you may find the same gang in your new location. Or your child may become leader of a gang in the new location.
This is a very serious issue and you need to draw on all the resources possible to ensure your child's success. Please contact the BOYS TOWN USA HOTLINE for further, in-depth information about gangs and gang related questions and concerns.
