Importance of Judicial Leadership in Juvenile Justice

Understanding the anatomy and physiology of the child brain development is critical/imperative. Underlying/enviornmental life circumstances are contributing factors in many juvenile cases, that lead child into a criminal arena. Children are vulnerable, easily "influenced" by "others", leading them astray toward a destructive path. Children, who have done crimes, must be shown the "error" of their ways,(incarcerated), but with discipline, counseling, compassion, "rehabilitive efforts" in helping children to become "productive" members of society. Far too many never had a "chance" since birth. IMO
