Beyond Parental Control (BPC) Statutory Supervision
Parents can approach the Juvenile Court for help with their children who are deemed beyond their control. The aim of the programme is to provide supervision and guidance to modify the child's behaviour and stabilise the family. Under the BPC Order, counsellors and social workers from Children's Society will supervise and counsel the wayward youth for a period of one to three years.
