Thank you, your right, these kids have it hard enough in todays world, to many things open, available, things we never heard about. things to detailed on the news, let alone dealing with being a teen. I feel that the woodstock court system let my son down, we had counceling set up, sass set up, out side work set up, the school involved to help when he came home, we even had Sass workers visit him in Juvi every week, but no......the Judge we had was a tirant, I don't even know why he asked my Husband and I how we felt, he took him from us once again anyway! He didn't care that I have a brain tumor, my son recently lost his grandmother whom I took care of and lived with us for 20 years, that his girfriend was pregant and aborted then broke up with him, my son was dealing with a lot of emotion, he received help in the hospital, he was punished with 30 days in juvi, but the judge could care less. This is just not right, the courts gave up on him, they could have let us do the counceling, sass, support from the school and put him on probation.
I am sure my son feels so alone and no one wants to help him, what kind of a justice system do we have if all they want to do is push kids into something that is just going to make them worse and feel worthless. He needs support, love, and guidance, not this kind of punishment.
Oh I didn't tell you, when he was in JJC for the 30 days, he had to switch rooms 3 times because of roaches that were actually crawling on his blanket and ants. You should see his chest and back, he has so many bites. They have to sleep only in their boxers so he only had the wool blanket.
