Going to court can be a fearful experience for some children.  Contrary to some beliefs, however, research shows that testifying in court is not always a negative experience.  Some children feel empowered by having the opportunity to tell what happened to them and know that their voice is important. There are many things you can do as an adult to help make your child's courtroom experience less intimidating.  On this page, you will find some topics that may be of special interest if you have a child who has been subpoenaed to court.  Contact your local Victim-Witness Assistance Program for more information and/or helpful brochures.
