I am choosing to write about Aileen Wournos, and how I believe she committed crimes because of the developmental theory. As many know, Wournos had a very difficult and strange life. Beginning with her father being incarcerated for crimes against nature (child sex crime), being abandoned by her mother at age 4, all the way to having sexual intercourse with her own brother. As one thing led to another traits started to develop, leading the way to her murder spree.
They think and wish that they were just like him so by spankings or beating your child this will ultimately cause them to do the same. Child rearing also leads to child abuse it is said that 75% of child abuser were beaten and spanked as a child, so they take their frustrations and anger out on their own kids and so on.3 As said before many parents who spank their child don’t know the difference between spanking and beating and even if they do they still believe that they are right. So by ending spanking as a whole this will reduce the number 1 cause of child abuse, beating instead of spanking and also family disputes and drug issues among teen in today’s
May 25, 1997, Sherrice Iverson, a 7-year-old girl lost the chance to grow up and live a full life. Jeremey Strohmeyer, a teenage boy walked into the women’s bathroom and intentionally molested and strangled the innocent child. David Cash was a key factor to whether that girl had a chance to a future or not.

Because of Cash’s decision, it created a controversial debate of whether he should continue to go to Berkeley.
While in Don't give up the fight the narrator gets bullied and does not do anything about it. Closer to the end of the story Ava [ or the narrator] tells her friend and then they both tell the principal and then the coach and kid get in trouble. I believe the story Don't give up the fight shows a bit more of helping others than Making Sarah Cry because.

For most people their role model is usually their parents, a fatherly figure in the family depicts what a child must do and not do. Juveniles are attracted to gangs sometimes because of their parents as they are absolutely irresponsible in raising their child and committing the very same misdeeds that we discourage a child to do. " Many youths are attracted to gangs because they come from broken families, usually families in which the father is absent." (Barbour & Sadler, 1997, p.119) These instances lead youths astray and encourage them to join gangs which in turn, lead to violence and other sorts of misconduct that are performed by these teenage groups. Juveniles nowadays have easy access to guns and other weapons that inflict damage upon an individual, and most of these weapons are kept at home.

Some parents blame their significant other as the reason why their marriage in breaking down and badmouths them in front of their children. And some parents even place the blame of their deteriorating marriage directly onto the child, telling the child that they are the sole reason why the marriage is not working in the first place (Placing Blame for Your Divorce n.d.). Actions like these encourage and promote the development of negative behavioural changes in children because they learn how to place blame on others and how not to take responsibility for their
The night that she lost all of her friends. On page 74 when she talks about "its face" she 's referring to her rapist, Andy (Beast) Evans. Those two quotes connect because she was raped by "IT" on "that night." "It" meaning Andy on the night of the party. When Melinda refers to the basketball analogy on page 76, she says, "The other team fouls you, you get to pay them back.
To start with, the protagonist of the book, Melinda, is experiencing multiple difficult times in her life like her parents relationship is falling apart, recovering from the rape, and loneliness. Melinda has isolated herself from everyone else for so long, but also since everybody thinks she busted the party, they don’t want to have anything to do with her. As her peers at school bully her by blurting things out at her while she has a perfectly good reason why she called the police, she is afraid to stand up for herself. At the party, she was raped by Andy and didn’t know what to do after it happened, so she called the police in shock.
A Critique of Speak Keeping a secret for a whole school year would be a challenge. One may find that the novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson explores the challenges of keeping a secret. The story is about a girl, Melinda Sordino, who gets raped over the summer at a party and is helpless. That year at school all of her best friends are now her ex-friends because they didn’t know what happened. She doesn’t tell anyone about this terrifying memory until the end of the year.
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson is about a freshman named Melinda Sordino who starts high school as an outcast and detested by her ex-friends and fellow peers. All because she called the cops at an end of the summer party that ended up with people getting arrested and the party being shut down. What everyone doesn’t know is that she did that because she was raped by a senior named Andy Evans at the party and didn’t know what to do after the traumatic incident and they don’t know because Melinda won’t speak. The conflict in the book is very similar to a book called Saints and Misfits by S.K Ali.
