    Kids who have been in Juvie or have a Po assigned to them usually play the cat and mouse game with them, believe they have been wronged etc and very little change happens.

    Restorative Justice approach is gaining acceptance all over the world. in my humble opinion it supports the human needs of autonomy, competence and especially relatedness . The Paintball case illustrates this. The process is similar to CPS collaborative problem solving -perpective taking,concerns of others, mutually satisfying solutions.The CPS starting point is the kid's lagging skills.The RJ process is more likely to reduce the high rates of recidivism - returning prisoners and help kids change from the inside
