Relation of Crime and Family - Crime is sometimes blamed on the family, with poor parenting, lack of discipline and family breakdown often associated with youth crime. A recurrent theme in academic research has been to investigate the relationship between delinquency and a range of family related factors. Early studies explored child-rearing behaviour, parental discipline, the criminal histories of parents and family size and income. Popular theories in the 1950s and 1960s related juvenile delinquency to material deprivation, broken homes and to the growing number of ‘latch key’ children who were left unsupervised after school while their mothers went to work....   [tags: Sociology Essays Papers Criminal] 1095 words

My Classroom Management Plan -         For many people, "discipline" is considered synonymous with physical punishment.  For others, it is seen as something that must be done to make children behave "properly".  Even the dictionary's definition seems to support this image:  "1. Training of the mental, moral, and physical powers by instruction, control, and exercise.  2. Subjection to rule and authority.  3. Punishment or disciplinary action for the sake of training."  Although this sounds like some kind of military training, there are many forms of discipline which do not necessarily involve some kind of abuse.  Many methods exist of refraining a child from acting in a negative manner that do not undermine their self-este...   [tags: Elementary Classroom Management 2014] 3900 words

Because of this, more labor was needed. This need for more labor was not only in the north, but in the south as well due to their mass production of cotton.

Corporal Punishment - Dear Sir, I am writing in reply to the recent publication of an item on the topic of corporal punishment. I do not agree that it is needed to bring discipline back into our schools. It is assumed that a child who has been caned would be less likely to commit another offence , but this was never proved and , in fact , one theory holds that severe corporal punishment increases the likelihood of future offences. There are better ways to discipline students than hitting them. Some parents may believe that spanking a child may be beneficial but apart from being potentially dangerous physically, it can lower their self esteem, hinder their academic abilities and may even contribute to disruptiv...   [tags: essays research papers] 659 words

Anthropology - Anthropology Works Cited Missing Anthropology is a discipline studying flux and change in human communities and definitions of identity, mirroring the dynamic play of modernist reconceptualizations of meaning. As an academic discipline, anthropology demands a realization of the interconnectedness between human groups, a heightened abstraction of vocabulary and tools with which to articulate these connections, and self reflexive sensitivity to its history. In this same vein, modernism, as a movement of avant-garde ideas and art forms, draws community to study of itself, demands its own vocabulary of critique, and harkens back to the history of events that prompted the movement....   [tags: Anthropological Culture Essays] 367 words
