Recent figures show an increase in violent crime among youngsters under the age of 18. Some psychologist claim that the basic reason for this is that children these days are not getting the social and emotional learning they need from parents and teachers. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
More attention should be paid on how to prevent people aged 18 and less doing crime. It is argued that the rise in the rate of juvenile delinquency happens due to lack of parents and teachers' surveillance. While this is true to some extent, I would argue that other factors such media, poor family background, and environment also play important roles.
It is necessary that parents and teachers are to responsibility to this issue. This is because they have more time to handle the behavior of their children both in the school and at home, for instance, teachers are more likely to spend their time prepare materials rather than monitor children behavior, while parents are concern on children's appearance without teaching how to behave well. This results in children doing their activities freely without any supervision. There is no doubt that parents and teachers are to maintain children not to do criminal activities.
However, other factors should not be neglected. Firstly, media such as television gives bad example by broadcasting action movies which can be watched by teenagers anytime. This TV programs bring negative impacts on child development. Also, poverty rates among the younger generation lead stress that can give effect to theft, robbery, or other violent acts. Poverty reduces the challenge to reach education which can access to get jobs or role models. Not only this, environment where kids live having access to bring negative phenomena. The availability of illegal drugs around children support children to be criminal.
In conclusion, the significant increase of crime rate happens since parents do not keep teenagers under surveillance. While this is thoroughly acceptable to some extent, I would claim that other factors should be taken into consideration, it is necessary that government should launch numerous program to attempt to lower that rate.
