Outline and Discuss Some of the Possible Causes of Juvenile Crime
Since as early as the 18th Century, there have been many theories as to the possible causes of juvenile crime. Scientific, biological, environmental and economical factors have all been put forward as singular explanations. Modern theorists however feel that one single factor is not likely to be the only answer. Most favour "multiple" factors. Multiple factors is a combination of influences that come into play together throughout the childhood of juveniles and this seems to be the most plausible explanation.
The influences that make up the "multiple" factors theory are thought to be combinations of biological, psychological, cultural, economic and political.
Below, I will discuss some of these influences that, when present in a child's life, can increase the chances of a child committing a crime.
Children learn from their family. They learn right from wrong from the family around them. Parents and siblings that behave in an unacceptable manner lead to the child believing that this is "normal" behaviour. Research has shown that "children who have anti-social or violent parents are more likely to be anti-social or violent themselves" (p673) 1.
