Week 7 D0 1 Due Day 2 Main Forum Please post your response to the following discussion question by clicking on Reply How do peers affect delinquency Do delinquents seek out antisocial and delinquent peers as friends or does having delinquent peers cause an individual to become delinquent Explain your answers Juveniles have the tendency to fall into crowds that they believe can boost their social and psychological needs Juveniles want to have a feeling of acceptance and avoid the whole lecturing process which their elders If parents or legal guardians become more concerned in the selfesteem of their children this would decrease the urge for juveniles to become victims of peer pressure and things of that nature it would tremendously help Juveniles presently in neither society are not getting the required assistance or attention they need or deserve from home so this caused them to seek it elsewhere like their peers or the media The issue with that is their peers and the media are just as confused and gullible as they are and it becomes like the saying the blind leading the blind Many juveniles feel as though they have to act out and appear cool in order to t in and become accepted or acknowledged by their peers The juvenile whom are usually named as the leader of these groups is generally not as con dent as they appear and normally will perform delinquent acts as of way of proving his or herself worthy of their title These socalled leaders will do things they would not regularly do It is my belief that delinquents make the choice to decide to act out of rebellion and when they do this can attract them or they can attract certain individuals that act similar so that these juveniles do not feel as though they are doing any wrong and do not have to hear anyone lecturing them about their criminal actions Response 2 Peers affect delinquency by peer pressure Peer pressure is when people talk other people into doing something that he or she would not do For example there are two friends sam and John Sam and John were walking down the street when Sam says quotHey John lets go into this store and get some stuffquot And John says quotNo because we don39t have any moneyquot And then Sam says quotSo what we can still get some stuffquot And then John says quotYou mean steal the st stuffquot And Sam says quotYesquot Then John says quotStealing is wrong and we will get caughtquot Then Sam says quotCome on I promise you that we will not get caughtquot Then John says quotOkayquot I believe that delinquents seek out antisocial delinquent peers as friends For the following reasons 1 If a delinquent seeks out antisocial peers then he or she probably thinks that they can get the antisocial peers to do whatever they want them to do without getting into trouble 2 If a delinquent seeks out delinquent peers then they probably believe that since the peer is already a delinquent then he or she will do what they want them to do I also believe that by having delinquent peers causes an individual to become delinquent The peer might not become delinquent right away but in time he or she will not get into the peer pressure Week 7 D0 2 Due Day 4 Main Forum Please post your response to the following discussion question by clicking on Reply How is academic failure related to delinquency Do delinquents fail at school or is academic failure responsible for delinquency Explain your answers It is my belief that school failure is several steps ahead of the issue nevertheless once children reach a level or step in school failure this causes the problem to revolve in a destructive manner Ajuvenile39s focus and concentration is thrown off when they start failing in school this can cause juveniles to misplace their self assurance and their capability to remain conscientious Juveniles whom fail in school usually begin skipping their classes and school in general The cause or the reason juveniles are lead to drug abuse or criminal actions and behaviors of other types comes from their constant habit of skipping class and school They are under the belief that since they have not been caught doing something minor as skipping school then they also believe that abusing drugs and acting out criminally which is major is something they can get away with too It is my belief that delinquent children are a magnet for other delinquent children and juveniles In addition it is my belief that the need of nondelinquent children with acceptance issues that are deeply disturbing have a way of attracting or being attracted to delinquent children or juveniles and consequently they have a tendency to become delinquent themselves just because children have failing or a slip in their grades does not mean necessarily that his can cause delinquency Nevertheless slipping or failing grades in combination with low selfesteem dilemmas or familial tribulations can just about imply ruin It basically depends on how severe the delinquent children or juveniles are and what level they have reached in failure in school Response 2 Academic failure is related to delinquency because minors that do poorly in school tend to have the quotI don39t care attitudequot or start to act out by ghting etc he or she is ashamed of their learning ability Becoming a juvenile delinquent could cause a student good student to start do poorly in school When minors start hanging with the wrong crowd they could start to adjust to the negative behavior and often times the rst sign is when a good student starts to do poorly in school
