Children who aren't shown love and support go on to lead unsatisfactory lives. This causes these children to not be active citizens, thus not helping the community. This completes the circle when these people have their own children, since they didn't help improve the community, their children will have to face the same hurdles as
Alone, running rampant in the cold streets, struggling and living off of crumbs is no way to live, especially as a child. For many this is an idea or something that is taken lightly because it is never a thought until it happens oneself, but for others this is how they get by, this is a way of life. Homeless youth continues to be a modern tragedy, with over 2 million homeless teens world wide: fortunately the Covenant House and other programs exist to keep youth off the streets and help decrease and prevent further problems. To truly understand the meaning of what it means to be homeless people must first know the definition of “homeless youth” and the common reasons that they are forced to leave their homes.

She lives behind the dump and with an abusive father. She thought Atticus was making fun of her when he was calling her ‘Miss’ and ‘ma'am’, which shows that she hasn’t been treated with much respect and doesn’t know how to give respect to others. She is also very uneducated. She never had the chance to go to school. The way she talked and the way she didn’t understand words like “friend” in the trial shows just how uneducated she was.
I believe this paper held very well information and statistics on children in foster care. The foster system can be a mess because so many children are being placed in foster homes where they face maltreatment and negative behaviors. With the growing numbers of foster children finding a good, safe foster home is becoming hard to find. Many people apply to foster simply for money from the state. Few qualifications exist to be a foster parent and in some states, check-ins on foster homes are rare because of a large number of children in the system and not enough social workers.

Children who are rejected by their parents, who grow up in homes with considerable conflict, or who are inadequately supervised are at the greatest risk of becoming delinquent Anika Doggett. Environmental factors that influence the start of delinquent behavior are brought to in many different ways. When children get on social media and see things like people posting things like guns and drugs the younger children look to that like its ok so they try and it doesn 't work out.
GANG INFLUENCE ON LOCAL BUSINESSES Urban cities often contain areas with high amounts of poverty, and many members of these neighborhoods struggle to find employment and financially support their family. Most of the time, the parents of these families neglect and abuse their children. Desperate for acceptance, these children turn to gangs during their adolescence to find belonging. Once grown up, the kids often mimic the behavior of their parents and attempt to raise a child of their own without the proper finances. As a result, the cycle of unfulfilled potential continues, primarily caused by the street gangs.
Rural or Urban does not matter in the case of family violence and what it brings. Vance and Desmond would both agree that a weak family, full of violent and uncaring parents leads to a life of struggle and poverty for the children and those in the actual

The study also uncovers how the street gang violence have an effect on schools, the interviews show that in western cape most of the learners in their schools are in gangsterism in the community and when the gangs are fighting with each other (Clinard and Meier, 2011). So the learners who are also gangsters come to school not with the purpose of causing chaos but to learn. However, with the fights happening on the street the learners is forced to shift focus from learning progress to fighting for his or her life as the other members of the opposing group who are not learners might arrive anytime to attach him or her. These fight do not only disturb learners that are members of gang but the violence that take place between two opposing gang groups affect the entire schools, put the lives of learners at schools at risk of being stabbed or killed, increases the rate of any form of violence (Doerner and Lab,
Something under the city is straving all day, is feed poor food and is bare necked each day and is put on displace for others to see, if they chose to see this thing. This thing is a child, helpless human being who pleads for his life. In our culture of the United States this is not a culture norm. If someone from our culture were to find this child, we would be getting the child out, getting the police involved and fighting for justice. But in the city of Omelas, this is their culture norm.
Quotes: “In our landmark, class-action lawsuit, CCR challenged the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices. The court found racial discrimination and 4th Amendment violations, ordering a reform process that includes input from affected communities” Explanation of how people are affected: A wide range of communities in our society have learned to live in fear of police and a generation of children of color have grown up in an environment where being mistreated by police is an expected part of daily life. Description of occurrence while stop and frisk occurs: Several interviewees reported that stops often result in excessive force by police, describing instances when officers slapped them, threw them up against walls or onto the ground, beat them up, used a Taser on them, or otherwise hurt them physically. Many of the testimonies CCR heard illustrate that this force is often used indiscriminately, or in response to being asked the reason for a stop or an
This would inform parents on how they can help their child who has been roped into the dangerous life in a gang. According to Rob White, most parents who suspect their child of being in a gang do not have time to help, programs that would directly help the youth in gangs would be extremely beneficial because it could give a child a sense of family that they yearn for (Indigenous youth and gangs as family). Creating and starting these programs would be hard work but well worth it in the long run if it can help and save children from getting caught up in the dangerous life of a
