This theory believes that crime rates are bound to the environment in which they are found. It looks at how social disorganization leads to the crime, committed by juveniles and how parents and families influence their children’s behavior. Delinquency areas have lower levels of social control over their youths. Children do not listen to their parents. The findings of the theory dictates that parents often encourage rather than discourage criminal behavior.
It shows that, if implemented properly, the program can provide psychological and direct benefits to delinquents. The most important consideration here is that an assessment should be conducted, which will give a comprehensive picture regarding the factors and influences, and the life script assessment. Other studies too have shown the importance of studying the life of the offenders with attention to the social and cultural aspects of their life rather than only focussing on individual factors alone, which if studied in isolation, would not be as useful. Some have advocated for the use of more individualistic treatment after assessment rather than a common programme (Cullen and Gendreau,
If they lack the means, then this individual may develop a strain which may enhance the person’s acceptance to commit crimes” (Libraries, 2017). Merton’s explanation of Strain Theory would help support the basis that juveniles will turn to a means to be accepted. Sadly, this action sometimes may resort to some sort of violence. In the mind of the juvenile, if society won’t accept me for who I am, then it will accept me for who I will
One of the family factors responsible for crime is inadequate parenting. According to crime prevention research, certain kinds of parenting behavior or family environment form a high proclivity of juvenile involvement in crime. Poor parenting truly increases the risk of involvement in crime, and this can be reduce by improving the quality of parenting as proven by experiments designed to this discipline (Yoshikawa, H. 1994). Some of the parenting factors responsible for crime among juveniles include: parental neglect, which in most cases can happen due to large family size, which may lead to laxity in parental supervision. This can lead to juvenile involvement in crimes.
That as long as society does not provide support and love the violence will continue in communities without these facilities. Finally, Most notably, they lead to negative emotions such as anger, frustration, depression, and fear and abusive can be a factor and the treatment from others can spike the interest of other concepts (SagePub.com,p1). The things that are implied in the youths everyday life or the events that have happened in front of them as negative cognition. These are the main reason why the crime is violence as other people look at it as labeling the violences to themselves. As well, one being taken care of or by other influences that any individual youth feels appreciated with.
Every child have a very fragile inner qualities that could be affected even if the problem is quite small for us. The experience and incidence they gone through during their childhood period will determine their future behaviour. Back to the case, when parents are fighting, the children will think that they are the cause why their parents are quarrelling and they might have thoughts that if they do not exist, their parents will not be like they used to be and things will be much more better. This thoughts could create a serious impairment in children’s behaviour internally or externally. Besides marital conflict, child abuse could also lead to externalizing problems in those girls.
The teens opt for criminal behavior is another consequence of externalizing disorder, as well as antisocial behavior _ to others because of fear of being rejected, the search for attention and thinking problems. Children acquire high levels of hostility and aggression because of the anger they feel toward their parents, because of failing in their material needs care, but more importantly, the emotional need that every child deserves. These young victims of violence and abuse in childhood will repeat or reflect the behavior of their parents, because they think attitudes like abandon, forget, deny, etc. It is acceptable and is used to resolve conflicts or problems. Also it could happen at the stage of marriage, the person might discharge
One of the main reasons why a rape or continued rape may go underreported is because of the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator. If the intimacy begins to build with on-going abuse, it can create a bond or a "relationship" between the victim and the perpetrator, sometimes manipulating the victim into believing the sexual assault is normal. When a victim is being abused by a romantic partner, an ex partner or a spouse, it can be viewed as a simple "misunderstanding" between lovers. In fact, according to our text book "Traditionally, marital rape was not considered to be a crime, but recent statutory changes recognize it as a crime, at least under some circumstances." Other reasons for victims to not cooperate or fear to report are as follows: "fear of disbelief from authorities, fearing that without significant injuries that the rape will not be taken seriously, harmful publicity, retribution from the rapist, insensitive treatment by law enforcement and hospital staff, rejection by mate or family, blame for the rape".
For example like children if they do something they were not supposed to do they are placed in time out. Putting people behind bars or children in time out teaches them to stop doing the wrong thing (some of them). Those who do not change get a different punishment but in the criminal justice system or spank in the butt. I think the descriptive justice that best describes my orientation is criminal justice and restorative justice. I choose both because criminal justice I think it should be handled by authority and restorative justice because there are some offenders who want to be different.
8 Family background This factor also incites or encourages the juvenile to commit for crime in society. Sutherland said that the family background has greatest influence on the criminal behaviour of offender or Juvenile. The children are apt to take in criminal tendencies, if they find their parents or members of the family behaving in the similar manner. A child who is brought up in a broken family is likely to face an easy prey to criminality. The lack of parental control over children due to death, divorce, or desertion of parent or their ignorance or illness may furnish soothing ground for children to resort to criminal acts.
