Episode 3: The Kids

Season One

From juvenile offender to cookie-maker nicknamed “Dr. Sprinkles”: 28 year old John Young is a poster child for programs redirecting kids in trouble. But how much more could we do by studying the neuroscience behind juvenile crime? What scientists now know about the young brain and the lifelong consequences of untreated trauma could turn the tide on escalating juvenile crime. In “The Kids” you’ll meet two crime victims who turned their anger into love and forgiveness, and helped John become a man determined to steer at-risk boys down a better path.
