In 1996, Dwayne Betts, then 16 years old, walked out of a courtroom with a sentence for nine years in prison; he’d flashed a gun at someone in a suburban mall and stolen his car. Betts, now a lawyer who represents young people facing trial, still remembers what the judge said to him before sending him off: “I am under no illusion that sending you to prison will help.” advertisement advertisement That was almost 20 years ago. Even if Betts’s judge knew the justice system was a flawed solution, there was no energy around seeking an alternative.

Will they stay locked away in their room for the whole Christmas break? It turns out that might not be such a bad thing. advertisement In a recent study, we found that talking online and texting actually strengthened friendships more than just spending time in each other’s company. Rather than neglecting relationships and encouraging insularity, having a phone meant that young people were more likely to feel connected to their friends and closer to their family. This is particularly important for teenagers, who are at an important stage in their development. They need to make close friends and renegotiate relationships with their parents. Making friends allows teenagers to learn how to interact with others, learn more about themselves, and find their own place in the world.
