In chapters 13-17, in a few sentences do you think it is right for young people to be able to witness criminal trials; especially trials that involve difficult subjects like rape and abuse.

I think the attendance of children at trials, particularly trials addressing adult situations depends upon the children, their maturity, and their relationship to the case at hand. No two cases are ever alike..... children might be too closely involved...... children might not be mature enoiugh to handle the subject matter. These decisions should be weighed carefully and decided by the children's guardians. I personally, would not allow my children to witness a trial where either of these situations was in question.
