    jury comes in

    Hi

    Certain woman talks about parenting. She says "My daughter is 21 and at about age 20 the jury comes in. At that point I felt like I could see where I got it wrong and where I got it right"

    Does it mean "it's too late to change/do anything"?

    [See corrections above.] No, it does not mean that it is too late to change. It means that the young woman has matured to the point that she can judge her past behaviors and actions.
