I don’t know which is worse, being treated like shit in the states or being sent to western samoa. My brother attempted suicide so my parents sent him there for 16 months or so. I lost my brother because by the time he returned, I was ready to go to college. My parents made me go to all the seminars while my brother was in Paradise Cove. In the seminars, the people there managed to tell me what a screwed up person I was, and my parents agreed. Meanwhile, my parents did not live in the same house and I suffered verbal, physical, and emotional abuse from my mother. I remember John Sutton coming over to the house because he handled the legal aspect of my brother being allowed to be in Samoa. At the age of 12, I saved him from suicide and then this Paradise Cove place caused him to have ptsd, anxiety, and constant fear as do I. I am currently writing a book on my experience as this Paradise Cove concept caused greater problems. Who in their right mind would send their child to Samoa to have other people abuse their child? Please email me at @ as any more information or facts would be ideal for my book.
