Like yesteryear's crazy uncle in the attic stories, almost every family today is dealing with one or more of its adolescent members who are at risk of being incarcerated. For middle class and single working parents in particular, time and money are already stretched to the limit. Dealing with and getting help for a troubled teen during his or her time of greatest need takes even a greater toll on family unity. Through 2 Late 4 Time Out the Juvenile Justice System is demystified through an engaging, shoot-from-the hip style narrative that is woven around preventive and corrective strategies, more than 100 illustrations, and over 1,000 links to schools, treatment and valuable resources found on the Internet Complimenting the hard facts are self-assessments, dozens of true-life scenarios, hundreds of annotated links broken down by category and interactive quizzes designed to help adult caretakers of troubled teens. 2 Late 4 Time Out helps adults quickly a) Assess how much risk a child is in; b) Prevent the onslaught of delinquent behavior; c) Learn the ever-changing juvenile laws; d) Identify self-help groups, schools, treatment programs and community resources; and e) Work in a pro-active manner to help a troubled adolescent gain a fair hearing.
