Should juveniles be tried as adults?

I feel that children under the age of 18 should not be charged as adults.  When they are charged as kids, there is a much higher chance that they will change their ways earlier on.  Once facing larger, adult charges, kids may be getting in too much trouble to be beneficial.  Whether or not the charge is permissible, juveniles should be able to have a second chance on life.  I am not saying that someone who has killed in their youth is not likely to do so in their future, but many problems that kids have stem from living at home with even worse parents.  Adult punishment is for adults.
