Many parents find themselves at their wits end dealing with their insubordinate children, especially teenagers. Every fight just seems to escalate as the tension between parent and child grows. Finally one day it just becomes too much, whether the child threatens the parent, or worse, physically assaults the parent. At this point, seeing no other alternative, the parent is forced to call the police, hoping that it will be just the disciplinary lesson their child needs. Unfortunately for this desperate parent, it ends up costing more than a lesson when their child ends up being processed in the legal system. In fact in Orlando and Central Florida, police are certainly asked to step in during this situation and are often arresting the child and taking them down to the Orange, Seminole, or Osceola County Juvenile Assessment or Detention Center.

Has this ever happened to you? If an officer chooses to arrest your child he or she could then be booked and placed in a juvenile detention center overnight until the case can be heard. Once your kid's case is actually heard, a judge can then hold your child over twenty-one days in a juvenile detention center, preventing you from taking your son or daughter home. Now one tantrum by your child has turned into a messy legal affair leaving him or her at the mercy of the juvenile justice system.

Don't let this adolescent behavior by your child turn into a costly mistake, making him or her face consequences far more serious than you, the parent, intended. As the guardian of your child, you may know more about what your kid needs than the Department of Juvenile Justice.
