Juvenile Delinquency Juvenile Delinquents in Thesis

Excerpt from Thesis :

Economic conditions that have forced both parents to work and have caused teenaged unemployment have also been associated with delinquency, as children are not only unsupervised, but also unoccupied. In addition to this, children who face undue hardships, such as physical and sexual abuse, as well as failure to perform academically, also often turn to delinquency (Roberts, 2005). Like Kim and Kim (2008) point out for South Korean children, stress is a likely culprit for the fact that dealing with difficult situations turns into delinquency in youth. This problem is further compounded if the youth has not had instruction in making good choices from parents and teachers (Roberts, 2005).

Thus, although they are on separate sides of the world, the United States and South Korea face many of the same problems when it comes to juvenile delinquents. In both countries, the lack of a definite role for criminal justice personnel is among the contributing factors, as those who struggle to determine how juvenile offenders should be dealt with cannot propose affective solutions. However, societal factors -- like school, family, and economics -- play an important role in the forming of U.S. And South Korean juvenile delinquents. What this suggests is that the solution to this problem is two-fold. First, it is necessary that the administration of both countries set up a program in which the treatment of juvenile delinquents is concretely established. Second, attention to social issues and welfare problems in both areas should be paid in order to increase the amount of adolescents who do not offend. If the children are really the future of the world, societies must five them the tools to make those futures brighter.
