I thought this book would be helpful to me as a parent to understand how the court system works more technically. This is the kind of book that a judge would give out as a diversion assignment after handing out a speeding or really minor offense citation with admonishments all through- "pick your friends well" , "don't speed", "don't tresspass" etc. these are his tips. Not worth the $29.

I have never seen a book quite like Juvenile Court by Leora Krygier. It truly is in a class of its own. What sets it apart is the value this book offers to teens and families of teens, people who assume they will never spend a day in court, people who normally go about their lives above the fray. Those people who may suddenly find their lives turned inside out by a summons to juvenile court.

As I was reading this book, I kept thinking that this it should be a text used in every high school health and psychology class in the nation. There are so many myths surrounding minor teen infractions and more serious crimes, too. Many of them have to do with what happens in that inner sanctum, the courtroom.

It also occurred to me that if and, yes--when--disaster hits for parents and teen alike (that day they face a call to court), they probably won't be thinking straight enough to go to the library so they can face the experience confidently and deliberately. More than likely, they wouldn't be aware that a practical book on the subject--written by an experienced juvenile court judge--exists.

Parents and teens may, of course, think of hiring an attorney and that certainly isn't a bad idea. But if they had a modicum of knowledge about what lies before them (to say nothing of the money required for that kind of assistance), that hiring and the legan process that follows would be easier.

Looking back on my own children's teen years, I wish I had a resource like Juvenile Court in my library at home. As it turned out, I never needed it. But isn't it the job of a parent to prepare themselves to guide their children through the most trying experiences? Most parents prepare themselves for the eventuality of teen pregnancy, as an example, but I doubt many would feel confident about their parenting skills if a call to court should ever come.

One of the things I found most enlightening about Krygier's book was the quotes she included from teens, their naiveté, their need for support, their passion, their willingness to learn from their experience. The quotes came from letters Krygier has assigned as part of the retraining process she is so passionate about.

The other thing that struck me is the tenderness (and toughness) of this judge so willing to reach out to do what she can to fill the huge gap in knowledge destined to make life harder on a growing group of parents and young adults.

This is an excellent guide for a young person facing juvenile court, or for the parent of a young person facing juvenile court. And even better for a parent who wants to keep their child from having to face juvenile court.

It's easy to navigate and easy to read, full of real-life experience of teens who got into trouble--including their language. If you're facing "Juvie," it'll tell you what to expect and how to cope. If you have a teen who you think may be at risk, get her to read it. [Note: The author is a friend.]

I am a big believer in self-help books and this book, Juvenile Court: A Judge's Guide for Young Adults and Their Parents, is a practical guide with tremendous value to teens and their prents. I have not seen another book about juvenile court addressed to parents and teens that explains the judicial system in such an easy to understand manner. It is an invaluable tool not only for parents and their teens, but for anyone in the mental health professions including, social workers, guidance counselors, substance abuse counselors psychologists and psychiatrists. Professionals who work with teens are sure to value this book as both a practical guide for their clients and as a preventative measure, as the vignettes recounted by Krygier illustrate how easy it is for teens to "cross the line" through rebellious and experimental (mis)behavior. This guide also warns of consequences with real-life examples from peers, and teens are more apt to pay attention to their peers than to adults. Any parent with a child in trouble or heading into trouble, should buy this book. It is clearly less expensive than hiring a lawyer and this book will provide information of great worth for all who are involved in the juvenile court system.

Leora Krygier's book does double-duty in my life as a school principal and the mother of a teenage boy. The real-life examples from actual teens that have appeared before Krygier are effective teaching tools. Knowing what kind of behaviors can land a teen in juvenile court provides a "heads-up" for teens tempted by friends to participate in risky and/or illegal behaviors. Should a teen get a citation to appear in juvenile court, reading this book and following Krygier's advice is an absolute must. Juvenile Court: A Judge's Guide for Young Adults and Their Parents offers much more than common sense, something many teens lack, it offers a way to turn a troubled life around while there is still an opportunity to do so.

In my practice as a Clinical Psychologist who assesses children and adolescents at risk, I find this book, Juvenile Court-A Judge's Guide for Young Adults and Their Parents by Leora Krygier to be a valuable resource to assist clients and their families in navigating the complex and intimidating legal system.
