This can lead to juvenile involvement in crimes. Secondly, factors associated with parental conflict and discipline to include abuse, nagging, harsh and erratic discipline makes the home very uncomfortable and wayward, thus pushing children to seek comfort from peers. Thirdly, deviant parental behaviors and attitudes such as parental criminality, parental violence and tolerance of violence form a high tendency for crime involvement. Lastly, family disruption as a result of chronic spousal conflict or marriage break-up can leave the children to the hands of their peers for upbringing and in most cases would expose them to criminal activity (Loeber & Stouthamer-Loeber,
Coporal Punishment which is the act of violence toward a child who has misbehaved is argued by many to either be abusive to the child or helpful. Some people argue that children which expierence coporal punishment are more likely to grow up and become vandals and thieves while others argue that coporal punishment makes a child tougher and prepares them for the real world. While Coporal Punishment was more accepted in the past its acceptance is declining more as we head to the future. The media has made Coporal Punishment feel wrong and abusive and while parents might still approve of it, they might not feel pollitcally correct talking about it.
Research conducted on child maltreatment give enough knowledge and understanding which can benefits sufferers of ill-treatment, or neglect, etc. Such victims also need to be given equal attention just as burn victims, sufferers of infections or genetic diseases, etc. Such victims are also socially dormant or lack self-confidence.

Child abuse is, thus, the outcome of having cultured or experienced dysfunctional childcare practices, or not having learned these practices. For instance, someone may have violent behavior because he or she has learned it from other aggressive role models, thus they will rely on such ways to discipline their own children as punishment. Though this is theory takes into accounts the importance of the development of an adult, it could not explain why although boys and girls are likely to be abused, still men are mostly represented among the offenders. It could not suffer any abuse become abuser (CORBY, 1993; 2000; BROUGHAM, 1997; BROWNE, 1995; DEACON AND GOCKE,
In this paper, I will argue and show parents how spanking and physically disciplining our children can have negative and detrimental consequences because it causes psychological damage, a lack of trust between child and parent, and when it is not done in the right mind set it can lead to more serious matters such as child abuse. “In 2012, a national survey showed more than half of women and three-quarters of men in the United States believe a child sometimes needs a "good hard spanking." ” Some may argue that spanking helps the child realize that their behavior is wrong and needs to be fixed, when parents discipline physically it might be a quick fix to stop the behavior, but as time goes on it does not only harm them physically but mentally and socially. While I agree that when a child’s behavior is wrong, we need to help them fix it, but I disagree that it should be done by physical punishment. Studies show that when kids are spanked or physically punished they tend to act out in the same way and choose to be aggressive like their parents.

Introduction The topic of infant abuse and its social and emotional affects on infant development always seems to be ignored by many people. There have been articles written on criminals and the reason they became criminals is because of the abuse they experienced in their childhood. Not all criminals are victims of infant abuse but studies show that some of them most definitely are, and the most common kind of abuse is neglect. Knowing about infant abuse is important because it happens all around and if we know about it we can easily detect it instead of being ignorant about it.
If a child or young teenager is being harassed by a parent or any other adult figure, they feel inferior to the older adult, which keeps them quiet. Children are most easily manipulated, and adults use that to their advantage and prey on children. Minor’s that experience this can have short-term effects as well as long-term effects, such as bad behavior, anger towards adult figures or even extreme anxiety. People and children alike need to fight past the fear and speak up against their abuser, tell anyone and try to seek help and gain the justice they
"In the eighteenth Century America, juveniles as young as age seven could be tried and sentence in criminal courts". The sentencing of juvenile/young offenders is a harsh process because they are being treated as adults. Youthful Offenders are imperiled when treated as adults because it decreases their risk of safety to be put in adult prison facilities. Cause and Effect Many of the causes that puts young children to be in future danger are abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and poverty. Without the correct resources to help these young offenders are affected to suffer, fall into misery, struggle, and hopelessness.
In today's society there are more kids committing horrible crimes that people see as a crime that only an adult can commit due to the age difference. Whether it may seem as if it's just a kid being a kid there are many factors that take play into the reasoning of the kids actions like not fully developed, mentally ill, family abandonment, easily influenced, not raised right or not a stable home. I believe that children should not be prosecuted as adults for many reasonable reasons considering more than the way they are portrayed. Youths are often taking after others without them realizing if that person does the right thing or not, not even thinking about what the consequences may be. Therefore, a child should not take full fault of the actions
Factors like maltreatment in childhood, neighbourhood disadvantage and poor monitoring in adolescents need to be scrutinized in this research. A childhood with trauma and even poor parenting can contribute towards the onset of criminal behaviour in a child or adolescent. A child’s relationship with his/her parents can be a deciding factor which can shape the future of a child. The issue of juvenile delinquency has been plaguing the society since a long time. We need to understand the underlying factors which transform innocent young people into criminal offenders.
Thesis: Even though adult court systems can teach young criminals the true consequences of their actions better than juvenile faculties, juvenile facilities positively impact their lives by providing them with safety, giving them more attention through the use of rehabilitation methods and deterring children from crime. II. Body: A. Background Info: Within the court system, there lie two divisions –the adult court system and the juvenile court system. In the juvenile court system, most cases are dealt with through the use of rehabilitation methods by changing the child’s lifestyle. ii.
When this starts to happen crime develops, and for people that live their they become accustomed to the criminal environment. Still even though an area is bad doesn 't mean the people are, criminal behavior is taught by others. Once someone is doing something wrong they convince others that what their doing is nessary. Certian theory explains why other follow criminal behavior and why children and easily influenced to doso. Social theory implies that criminal behavior is learned through close relations with others, it asserts that children are born good but learned to be bad.
Research proposes that child sexual abuse is preventable, and the steadiness of the issue shows the requirement for systemic changes in the courses by which guardians interface with kids This specific model contrasts from a "risk show", which credits fault for damage to people specifically associated with causing the mischief. The risk display frequently separates culprits and the reasons for hurt by connecting them to coordinate
According to many public agencies across the United States, over one million children were found to be victims of abuse in 1994, and three million reports of possible abuse of neglect. Every child’s experience of maltreatment is different and unique. It all depends on the child’s characteristics, their relationship with the perpetrator, and the intensity of the maltreatment done to the child. Workers in child protective services (CPS) agencies need a better understanding of the dynamics of maltreatment to help them decide what’s best for the child. This will guide them and help them offer appropriate programs that are beneficial and helpful to the child.
