About my latest book, How to Keep Your Child from Going to Jail: Restoring Parental Authority and Developing Successful Youth

Day in and day out, the courtroom of Judge Grimes and many other family and juvenile judges throughout the country are filled with too many youth charged with delinquent conduct. On the other hand, many children are dealing with the failures of their parents. Addressing these matters only in the confines of the courtroom alone fails to deal with many of the underlying issues that cause our youth to end up in court in the first place. Parents play a powerful role in determining whether youth succeed in life or end up incarcerated. 

In How to Keep Your Child from Going to Jail, Judge Hubert Grimes uses his years of courtroom and life experience to create a framework for parents who want to steer their children away from such dire predictions. His no-nonsense approach that starts from the moment prospective parents decide to have a child, carries the reader through the various seasons and challenges of successfully raising children to maturity. Along the way, he points out the challenges that threaten to derail parents and children from achieving their goals.  He readily identifies the conduct which often leads to delinquent behavior and shares insights with parents which can preempt these problems before they arise.

Judge Grimes has been a trial judge for over twenty-five years. During the last fourteen years, he has specialized in family law matters and developed a solid reputation for fairness, wisdom, and common sense solutions to the myriad of day to day problems he faces in his courtroom. In this book, parents will learn to appreciate the sacrifices of parenting before they become parents, overcome negative parent-child relationships, strengthen the self-esteem of their children, and steer children away from jail and towards successful lives as contributing members of society.
