8/27/11 The juvenile court movement began with these five philosophies in mind: 1. The state is the higher or ultimate parent 2. Children should be saved and not punished 3. Children should be nurtured and protected from the stigma of the court system 4. Justice needs to be individualized—each child is different, they have different needs and aspirations, therefore each child should be treated differently 5. Noncriminal procedures should be the first priority

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
