Transcription: 
One of the most important things juvenile court justices want parents to know is how to monitor their kids outside the home because unmonitored kids are much more likely to be in front of them or in the newspaper. So, what I want to do is ask 4 questions to my teenager and not let them go until I'm satisfied. Who are you with, what are you going to be doing, where are you going to be and what adults are responsible for monitoring. Responsible adult is responsible for monitoring. So, I won't let them go unless I'm satisfied about all 4. The monitoring by the adult can be from the parking lot while they are in the concert. It might be 2 houses away if they are at some other kid's house. But unmonitored teens when they get together when other unmonitored teens and they engage in risky behaviors. It's like walking on the minefield. They may walk through be fine but who wants to see them do that?
