Recent figures show an increase in violent crime among youngsters under the age of 18. Some psychologists 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.
The violent crime among young people under 18 has increased recently. Some psychologists argue that lack of social interaction and emotional learning from their parents and teacher are the main reason of this case. In my point of view, I strongly agree that this issue is owing to lack attention from their parents and teachers.
Parents and teachers are figures with whom the children get into knowing the world. First of all, I will discuss of parents side in which they hold an important responsibility to take care of children at home. Today's, many parents are workaholic. Most of their time spent outside home, therefore togetherness with their children becomes less. However, children need more affection and attention from their parents. Feeling loneliness and lack of support then appear upon children's self. As a consequent, children become vulnerable and thus they plunge into juvenile delinquency.
While parents take responsibility to children at home, teachers take responsibility at school. Most of school today apply the modules of lesson which more emphasize to the artificial intelligence rather than the emotional intelligence. In addition, majority of teacher today teach students are merely on duty, not out of love or passion to children. As a result, many students hate their own teacher in the school. Eventually, the students do bad deeds such as insulting people and bullying at school.
To sum up, I personally agree with psychologist's statement that parents and teachers hold a paramount role to control children. In fact, more affection and attention the children get, more genuinely generous they will be. Unfortunately, many parents and teachers do not sensible to this.
