We all know that teenagers make some serious mistakes. Often times, young people get caught up in reckless or destructive behavior because they do not fully understand the consequences of their actions. Teens are more susceptible to peer pressure and can be more impulsive than adults, which means that they often get themselves into trouble.
While people generally understand that these young people should learn from their mistakes, parents can often step in and protect their children from facing overly harsh punishment for something that they may not have even done. The father of a 15-year-old boy recently did just this after his son was jailed on serious violent crime charges.
