When Good Kids Make Poor Choices: Juvenile Law

Science shows us that a teen's brain is not yet fully hardwired. We know that many youths have trouble making reasonable executive decisions. Sometimes this incomplete wiring can cause an otherwise "good" kid to make a poor choice.

The Law And Teens

Unfortunately, many times law enforcement and the courts do not understand what causes a 10-, 12- or 14-year-old child to act impulsively, sometimes with violence sometimes sexually. The truth is that the court, the judge and the jury all need to be educated about a teen's brain. They also need to see your child as a person, a sibling, a son or daughter, but most importantly as still a child.
