Frequency of drop out rates between my experiment and controlled groups. We asked ourselves, “Is there a correlation between lower grades, drop-out rates, and those who become a part of gang related events, when social media is present?” This question became relevant when asking ourselves what was the cause of the drop outs and what did these students do if not in school. We asked those students with low grades if they liked school and wish to continue with the options ranging from 5 categories: “I love it and wish to continue,” “I only want to finish high school,” “Not important to me,” “I hate school,” and “I hate school and do not wish to finish.” These responses were then used to track the males who claimed not to hate school and not want to finish it.

I. INTRODUCTION Life Course Theory (LCT) is an approach to public health which draws from a large variety of disciplines, such as biology, sociology, and psychology, in order to examine how health and disease develop over the course of a lifetime (1). This lens is used to examine health disparities, examine factors which contribute to the achievement of optimal health, and develop interventions. The goal of life course-based intervention goes beyond the prevention of disease and seeks to create conditions in which people are able to thrive, or achieve their full potential for health and wellness, throughout their entire lives (2, 3). According to LCT, health is dynamically produced across the lifespan in response to behavioral, social, and
In family structure, high parenting stress cause children’s problematic behavior especially in single parent. If the child has a high sense of school belonging, the child is likely to participate in delinquent behavior. The passage points out important areas to improve family structure and school belonging.

One point two million high school students drop out of school in the United States alone- that is 7,000 a day! Since so many students drop out a year we must ask ourselves, should students stay in school until they are 18? Students should have to stay in school until they are 18 or graduate because they will earn more money. If you don’t graduate then it might have a negative impact on your life and your have a higher chance of going to jail.
Social learning and subcultural accounts of criminality reflect those crimes that are more likely to be committed by the working class-poor and middle. These two theories require a level of social interactions with in member of a society. This interaction is a rather negative one since it leads to no other than deviancy. Divency according to these theories occurs either from an earlier point in life or later on. Important to note, deviance is not a daily norm.
Additionally, teenagers whose origin are not actively involved or interested in their lives are more likely to become bullies, which may ultimately entice to involvement in gangs or violent manner. How Can Parents Take an Active Role in Preventing Delinquent Behaviors in Their Children? Ultimately, parents may have the most control over the behaviors of their spawn. In other account, children and adolescent await to follow a trail toward criminal and murderer manner rather than engaging randomly.1Research has shown that there are two types of delinquents,. One positive teenager eduction model addresses the six spirit domains of work, education, relationships, participation, tone, and creativity.
Theories of late adulthood development are quite diverse in later adulthood than at any other age. They include self-theory, identity theory and stratification theory. The self-theory tries to explain the core self and search to maintain one’s integrity and identity. The older adults tend to integrate and incorporate their various experiences with their vision and mission for their respective community (Berger, 2008). Also, the older people tend to feel that their attitude, personalities and beliefs have remained in a stable state over their lives even as they acknowledge that physical changes have taken place in their bodies.
The idea is that people doing conventional things—working, playing games, watching sporting events or television, doing homework, engaging in hobbies, or talking to parents—are to that extent unable to commit delinquent acts, whatever their delinquent tendencies may be. Despite its firm place in the common sense of criminology, the idea of involvement/limited opportunity has not fared well when put to the test. More than one researcher has found that adolescents with jobs are more rather than less likely to be delinquent. Also, counts of the hours of the day the adolescent is doing an activity that is inconsistent with delinquent acts have proved disappointing.
Criminal behaviour has always been an interest for psychologists, for they could never quite come to a conclusion between nature and nurture. Research concerning this topic has been organized for many years and due to the never ending debate, is still being conducted. I have decided to read and write about this myself, for I was genuinely curious about the matter and wanted to be a part of the research, as I felt responsible to do so. I believe that in order to stop something, it must be discussed and scrutinized. What effects do genes have on criminal behaviour, why do peer pressure and habitat influence a person to commit crimes and are men really more violent than women?

Therefore, life purpose is important because it is applied in every day. It directs us to the path that we want to be and guide us to spend our resources more efficiently to achieve the goals. For example, many students chose their studying majors without reasons. This often results in a waste of resources and inconsistency in studying and working fields. Living a life day by day is meaningless, thus we should develop a purpose of living, place it at the center of life, and commit to
Juvenile delinquency is a growing social problem in the world today, as worldwide, about 200,000 murders occur among youth 10–29 years of age each year (more than 500 deaths a day), which is 43% of the total number of murders globally each year (WHO, 2016). It is defined as major or minor law breaking (e.g. murder, rape, robbery, and theft) by youth (Berger, 2000) and the United Nations defines ‘youth’, as those persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years. Consequently, juvenile delinquency is a critical problem in the society, which could lead to social instability by violence and insecurity perpetrated by and against young people. These problems are caused by various influential factors ranging from peer and parental influences, environmental, and strain. It also affected by family process variables (e.g. parent-child involvement, communication, parental monitoring), indeed parenting is one of the important factors among them.
