Please direct him for counselling and access a transitory home. We have supported 129 university students and all of them have had to agree with our terms of discipline while they stayed at the transitory home. We offer services to those who can also afford to have lunch and do their own laundry!! We do have our way of checking out these stories. We have had to refuse 12 people for "crying wolf" !!
