home of love really matters in most crimes  - may it be from childhood to adulthood
even courts argue on this.. if there is greater repremanded issue, where could ther future be? and how will they see their use and their path of lighter side?... they may grow up in a twisted world where all they see is cruelity and a guilt for a life time.. as if the law implemented is of less this is of positive hope that the child may think of another way to find his/her strength despite the fact of being involve of such violations and anti norm,. but honestly i do make the part of tracing the cause, it must really root to where and how it begun.. from environment to home to school and applying it to the society, the more they feel lost and unattended of ceratin need such as love, care or affection... a negative instinct of avenge and numbness then splurs.. they are beginning to root a malpractice from too fragile young ages and thus later produces the results of juvenile crime and not only crime but disorders to mentality as well. thats why we have to really find the cause and its effect because we are only humans indeed. take care jep^_^

juvenile punishments - rather than imposing harder punishments for juvenile crimes we should help them by guiding them to the right path.
Wow! I am speechless! You are worthy of best response! Thank you for sharing your view about the topic. Mylot needs people like you here! Keep it up!I too think that its better to understand those children and help them get a better life rather than imposing a harder punishments to them.

I am in two minds about this, maybe a stricter punishment but at the same time maybe getting these young people to learn and give them something else to live for, give them a purpose.

yes, I also agree with you. Giving stricter punishment will somehow lessen juvenile crimes but alongside with this we should also help those children by leading them to the right direction.

Hey, i don't agree but i am not against, i mean, sometimes some childs needs to get punished, but not that hard, i mean, if a child break something, like a plate or a glass, they should be repreended, but if they broke something like a Radio, or something more expensive, or even if they are "fighting with someone or even with the brother or sister" ( sorry, i dont know a word for it ), they should get punished, bad behaviors must get corrected.

I don't think a stricter punishment should be given to a juvenile crime...The best is to councel this juveniles and make them realize what is right and wrong..This are still children..

It can be as long as you dont violate human rights for them. Because we have lots of factors that influence every family member in a particular community.

I think it does depend on what the crime is and how it is handled. THANKS!
