I would like to know the meaning of "try a child" in the next passage.
Parents should not force their children to admit to stealing. Children often lie to protect themselves. Parents should try not to make their children feel guilty for stealing. And finally, don't bring up the subject again. Once the matter is settled, itís not reasonable to try a child for the same crime more than once.
judge: put on trial or hear a case and sit as the judge at the trial of; "The football star was tried for the murder of his wife"; "The judge tried both father and son in separate trials"
