In many parts of the world, children and teenagers are committing more crimes. Why is this happening? How should children and teenagers be punished?
Juvenile delinquency is a growing problem in many countries. While this is a complex issue we need to understand the reasons and how young people should be dealt with.
To begin with, we must appreciate there are many factors that affect youngsters lives. This essay will focus on just two, the impact of the internet and parental responsibility. Firstly, when teenagers have unrestricted access to the internet they are exposed to many different influences. For example, on the one hand, they watch rich people showing off their material lives and on the other hand watching youths committing crime, getting away with it, and posting it on YouTube. Further, as parents have to work longer hours children are often left to their own devices and are not bought up with the proper guidance.
Punishing young offenders is a difficult task. If a child is too young, their parents will be responsible under the law and it is their responsibility to make sure their child remains law-abiding. However, teenagers are responsible for their own actions and must be taught how to be a good citizen. In lieu of good parenting schools should help with their moral upbringing and teach good behavior and discipline. Moreover, putting young people in prison can exacerbate the problems so a system of mentors and helpers could be provided for those who unthinkingly break the law.
To conclude, access to the internet combined with poor parenting can lead a child into crime. However, with the correct guidance and good parenting I believe juvenile delinquency can be reduced.
