What are your thoughts or experiences with sending a difficult child to juvy? Does it help or make things worse? My 9 year old is on the verge of being sent there (he has to see a judge next week and sign a contract, if he breaks the contract, he gets sent there). I am just curious to know if juvy has any effect on Impulse control disorder, bipolar disorder, conduct disorder or aspergers. I do not mind sending him there if it will help but I want to know what others think about the system. Thoughts?
