Juvenile delinquency may refer to either violent or non-violent crime committed by persons who are (usually) under the age of eighteen. There is much debate about whether or not such a child should be held criminally responsible for his or her actions. There are many different inside influences that are believed to affect the way a child acts both negatively and positively, some of which are as follows: Abandonment Social institutions Peer pressure Parental permissiveness and laxness is the cause or prompter of such delinquent and aggressive behavior. In fact, children coming from homes with permissive parents are thirteen times more likely to produce delinquent and aggressive behavior than children coming from homes with overly strict and punitive parents. In you're opinion , is there anybody to blame for having our children involving to any crimes?

To a certain extent it is the parent's responsibility. I know there are some kids that will just get into trouble no matter what the parents do but for the most part, good parenting willresult in good kids.

I agree with you , it will depends on how parents upbring their children.
