Strain Theory Delia Sanchez Professor Downey December 1, 2016 Abstract In this paper, the many reasons on how strain theory best attests juvenile punishment will be explained. Juveniles often go through many traumatizing events in their lives, and one reason on how to cope with that is, crime. Minors depend on crime for a number of things, such as seeking out a family, a way to rebel against their parents, and looking for a way to quickly “gather” money. Throughout the paper, the many details on how, and why this happens, will are further explained. Strain Theory Juvenile delinquency is the behavior that violates criminal law by a youth individual who has not yet reached the age of specified age.
Research based programmes aim at increasing an individual’s protective factors while reducing risk. Three types of programs are: universal (aimed at a large group such as a community eg: awareness campaign), selective (identifies those at higher risk for drug use, like youth with drug addicted parents) and individual (such as those who have already started abusing drugs, such as Cannibis). (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2014.) Prevention is therefore viewed as the best strategy to resolve drug abuse as it assists relevant parties (teachers, parents, community leaders) in shaping the youths perception about drug abuse. If implemented properly, the research based program will be effective.
However, in order to reverse the growing drug abuse trend, deter drug use, and secure student safety, schools should implement random drug testing policies, exempting those schools struggling financially. A major trend of drug abuse is continuing to develop over the entire country, especially youth,
These tests are invasive, expensive, and counterproductive. If schools began to use the funds for more useful and practical activities such as education programs for students, parents, and teachers it could make an immense difference. This topic is important due to the cruciality of this issue in the school systems today. Student drug abuse is frightening and increases the possibility of addiction along with incarceration. Not enforcing drug tests does not mean that schools should allow drug use, but rather learn unique tactics to aid in the progression to end it correctly.
Having to make an organization of all these people may be a hard thing to do, but a Drug Revolution is needed for our community. Drugs are taking over the country, causing lots of troubles which include the most obvious effects of drug abuse such as ill health, sickness and, ultimately, death. The negative consequences of drug abuse are widespread, causing physical and emotional damage to
As such, they are particularly influenced to the media messages of behavior as acceptable, unacceptable, or normal. Since large parts of these messages are in pictures and stories, the power of the media in guiding the behavior of teenagers has increased. While the media has the capacity to teach behaviors’ that reflect positive social values, the majority of the research on the influence of media on teens has focused on the cause and effect relationship between the portrayal of immoral or dangerous conduct on the media and the resulting negative teen behavior. Media is a very powerful tool, which can lead teenagers on their journey through life. This has created tension between parents who have positive expectations for their teenagers and teenagers who view such expectation as hopelessly outdated.

So, youth has to become engaged in politics to combat their acts to entail violent acts against citizen. The most effective ways youth can do are to learn about political systems, political actions, political issues and other realities within and around the political system.

But nowadays, a growing threat to human being’s rights is gradually spreading like wildfire in the whole world, it’s called Discrimination. Some countries have adopted measures to fight discrimination (European Youth Center, 2008) and recently, Philippines is one of them. The Anti-Discrimination Law in Cebu is the first law in the Philippines to fight discrimination which is merely based on ignorance, prejudices and negative stereotypes. (Cebu Daily News, 2012) The law being approved is already a great “first step” to change because the Anti-Discrimination Law is essential for many Filipino people for the reason that it has a wide span of involvement from the different genders, disabilities, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities down to different religions. According to the book COMPASITO — Manual on human rights education for children (2008), discriminating someone is to restrict that person for their full possession and enjoyment of
The ultimate goal is to stop youth violence before it starts. Several prevention strategies had been identified by the guidance counselor through guidance programs and interventions. Bullying is one of the most common problems in schools be it pre-school or even in college. Across all age groups, the fact remains that both the bully and the one being bullied are literal victims of not comprehended changes in their lives and in their surroundings.

These changes in the socio-economic structure of the society have also affected the behavioral pattern at the individual level and the age-old traditional value system of the state.
