Should prisons ban the use of solitary confinement for juveniles?

“Juvenile solitary confinement has been criticized heavily because of the deep psychological damage to the teenagers who must endure it. Doctors have categorized it as a form of child abuse.
In January 2016, President Obama issued an executive order banning federal prisons from using solitary confinement to punish juveniles.
Those in favor argue that depending on the nature of a crime, solitary confinement, at least should be an available resort. Opponents insist that those subjected to solitary confinement are more prone to indulge in criminal activities upon release than others.
