The laws affecting young people of all ages are complex, controversial, and have changed rapidly over the past twenty years. The rights of a minor in trouble may differ dramatically from those of an adult from the moment of arrest to the sentence imposed. Recent cases have also changed laws in the areas of child abuse and neglect, foster care, adoption, and the termination of parental rights. Further, special laws often govern a young personÃ¢ÂÂs right to medical treatment, contraceptive devices, and abortion. Clearly written and authoritative, this is an essential reference book not only for young people themselves, but for all concerned parents, educators, and social and health care professionals.
