Juvenile interrogations are interviews conducted by law

enforcement officers when a youth is suspected of being involved in

a crime. Parents do not have to be notified if authorities are

they are witnesses or suspects to a crime. Often, this delays parents'

time in speaking on behalf of their child. Additionally, studies show

many youths are willing to give up their right to remain silent due to

youth and their parents with programs directed towards youth rights

is essential to empower families to advocate for their youth.

educational campaigns. Law enforcement agencies should require

ongoing training regarding youth devel
