    DescriptionThe time for change was yesterday and the time to wake up is now. The problems Sheindlin encounters daily - welfare abuse, juvenile violence, abandoned or abused children, ugly custody fights - reflect the growing destruction of America's families. They are a mirror of what has gone wrong in America, a reflection of how far we have strayed from personal responsibility and old-fashioned discipline.In Judge Sheindlin's Manhattan courtroom, nothing is too outrageous - including the judge. In her courtroom the operative words are "do the right thing - and do it now." A fiercely intelligent, flamboyant, tough-talking mother of five, Sheindlin examines the problem of America's fraying family fabric and says publicly what most citizens feel privately: Juvenile delinquency is out of control and young criminals must not be treated lightly by the court system any longer. Sheindlin knows the system inside and out and reveals its absurdity, politically correct or not.Judy Sheindlin demonstrates how the system permits and even promotes a lack of individual responsibility. She shows how the courts wink at fraud committed by individuals and social service agencies. She describes how the media reinforce misguided feelings of guilt about those who call themselves victims of some amorphous social policy, from drug addicts to welfare recipients and delinquents. Sheindlin then offers solutions - real solutions, not studies or more commission reports - to show our country how to get back on track.
