When focusing on homeless youth, it will be challenging due to the amount of stress and issues they are dealing with from living outside a stable household. A homeless shelter that primarily focuses on the youth has brought on a negative impact because of the lack of social support with the youth and the amount of rules and regulations that homeless child has to follow. Too many rules in a child-centered shelter could cause a homeless child that has been living on their own or a financially unstable household to leave the shelter and return to their previous lives.

Otherwise, something refers to the bad environment of the teenagers that also might have started these riots. Children who are born and raised in families where they did not have any chance in learning the right from wrong, could definitely explain the anger they are expressing, and the punishment we are paying for.
