This club will prevent them from getting involve in crime and let them know about how bad juvenile delinquency is. This club will also have awareness on youth crime. Bilderaya (2005) found that the main reason for this program is to improve relation between peers and make school a better place to study. There will be a session that involves counselor to give a talk on those who have or had been doing crime for a long period of time. The session will mainly talk about the badness of youth crime, what are the after effects if they are too obsessed in doing offences and let them know that there are people who succeed in their life with the background of a former criminal.
Youth offenders in the United States who commit an adult crime should they be tried as an adult or sent off to rehab? According to (Juvenile Offender) young people today are more malleable and can be easily influenced. It is mainly believed that the criminal actions by young offenders might be influenced by such external forces such as parental neglect, and inappropriate living conditions or with relations within their family. It is important to note that instead of seeing a rehab program as a form of punishment. Young people who are undergoing such a program should understand they are voluntary and should consider the program as a positive opportunity to change their lives for the better.

It is also a great way for the community to be involved by helping juveniles reducing their criminal behavior. According to the article “Preventing Juvenile Delinquency” by Alina Saminsky, “prevention programs positively impact the general public because they stop this crime from happening in the first place.” If kids can be addressed before a problem occurs, it can change peoples lives. Not only will the community benefit from it by avoiding future catastrophes, but so will teens by not spending time in prison. Prevention programs help detect risk factors that a juvenile shows at an early age. Those risk factors include “Fetal substance exposure, Prenatal difficulties, as well as an abusive and violent family” (Saminsky).
Teen courts serve as a “diversion” program used to divert first time offenders away from a lifetime of criminal activity. The primary function of most teen court programs is to determine a fair and restorative sentence or disposition for the youth respondent. Although the primary function of teen courts is to rehabilitate offenders, some may wonder if teen courts are actually beneficial to young offenders. One of the major determining factors of the beneficialness of teen courts, is recidivism. According to Butts and Ort... ... middle of paper ... ...l behavior by educating youth, and youth are more likely to respond positively when being taught by other youth (Strobel, p.1).
For many people who are bullied if they can’t overcome a simple schoolyard bully how are they supposed to function socially later in life? The sorry truth is ... ... middle of paper ... ...llying can be beneficial to a child’s social development. From my research the positives out-weigh the negatives in bullying. Normal bullying isn’t the problem it’s when this silly schoolyard bullying borders along the line of harassment is when bullying is the problem and this needs to be stopped but with so much help these days a child has the tools to overcome bullying and learn from their experience. It is also very rare that bullying can make a dramatic change in one’s life but it can teach many life lessons that I believe every child should know before becoming an adult.
The article from America SPCC explains that the parent is almost essential for a child to become a responsible respectful person. The parent has to correct the child when the child is wrong and also help mold the child so that it can grow to be a great person, once the child is pass being an adolescent then the decisions he or she make are upon themselves. Sometimes a child just wants to be bad and it isn’t always the parent’s fault that a child becomes an juvenile delinquent but bad parenting does have a relationship with juvenile delinquency. With me being an adolescent I understand how us teenagers are but if there is nobody there to tell us what’s right and wrong we will continue to do what we believe is okay even though we know it’s wrong we’ll continue to do it because it doesn't bother anyone. Also, I believe I am a reflection of my parents, therefore I want to act the way they tell me to and make others see that I am a respectful young man.
Overall it helps distinguish juveniles who are in immediate needs of treatment from a large group in a short amount of time, thus making it efficient and gives a more likely reason to send them to be treated properly, rather than sending them to be imprisoned. Many Juveniles have been deprived of their proper treatment due to society’s lack of understanding and compassion, yet research clearly shows that mental health treatment not only keeps them at bay from repeating their crimes, but also helps them live a more positive lifestyle in society. In times we blame the juvenile for their mistakes, however instead of pointing fingers at them, we can come together as community to help them overcome their “inner demons”. After all, it is not the children committing the crimes, but their mental disorder that is hindering them from living a normal lifestyle.
