Child Abuse And Neglect Cause Juvenile Delinquency

Child Abuse and Neglect cause Juvenile Delinquency Strain theory describes the idea that there are certain events and conditions in an individual’s life that are disliked and involve the inability to achieve goals, loss of positively valued stimuli, and presentation of negative stimuli (Brezina and Agnew). Child neglect and abuse can be described by this theory, and often is, because of its elements and the effect it has on children. Before the idea of child abuse and neglect causing juvenile delinquency can be argued, juvenile delinquency must be defined. Brezina and Agnew define juvenile delinquency as law violations committed by minors. One of the largest debated consequences of child abuse and neglect is it causes juvenile delinquency in victims. Juvenile offenders are view by the justice system as â€Å"‘immature’ in the sense that they are less capable of appreciating the consequences of their actions, less able to exercise self-control and more easily lead astray by others.† Supports of this claim say abuse causes delinquency because weak bonds, low self-control, and confrontation with negative stimuli. There are three theories that all describe the reasons why child abuse and neglect lead to juvenile delinquency. This first of these theories is the social bonding theory which states that the weaker the bond between parent and child, the more likely the child is to become delinquent as stated by Ronald Akers. A parent’s role in an adolescent’s life is to foster a socialShow MoreRelatedBreaking Down the Walls of Delinquency1685 Words   |  7 PagesSometimes a researcher has to get to what he or she thinks is the root of the problem to figure out what spawns a certain issue. What provokes a child to become delinquent and what makes the child gravitate so easily towards this lifestyle? It is necessary to explore how family life influences juvenile delinquency. Juveniles are more likely to become juvenile delinque nts if there is little structure provided for them in their families.

In 1974, the first national child protection legislation, The Child Abuse Prevention and Treat Act (CAPTA) became effective to promote awareness to communities and states to engage in identifying and preventing child abuse (Stein 1984). In order to realize the objectives of the Act, abuse must be defined. Defining abuse is hard to set in stone, as one concern is whether both physical and emotional abuse should be included or only one (Stein 1984).

A finding that emerges very strongly and consistently is that delinquents have very poor relationships with their parents† (Gove 303-304). The teens who commit crimes often lack a parental figure in their lives. These teens are not strictly overseen by their parents, and their parents rarely know what they are up to or what they are doing (Gove 303). â€Å"Poor parent-child relationships, lack of parental control, and erraticRead MoreThe Problem Of Recidivism Today s Society And How It Is Hitting Extremely High Numbers1289 Words   |  6 Pagesoffenders and are in the long haul being placed in and out of jails, California Youth Authority programs, and eventually becoming apart of the revolving door of the prison industry.

Night Creature Blue Moon Chapter 24 Free Essays

I grabbed the rifle right out of the guy’s hands. â€Å"Hey!† He tried to get it back, but I shoved him with one firm hand on his chest. I nearly passed out from the beer fumes, but I managed to stay upright and keep him from snatching the gun. We will write a custom essay sample on Night Creature: Blue Moon Chapter 24 or any similar topic only for you Order Now Jerry Uber wasn’t the brightest star in the sky. His shaved head only proved my point. Jerry didn’t have the smoothest noggin or the best skin. Right now he looked like a lumpy egg with diaper rash. â€Å"You can’t carry a rifle without a case in the middle of town, Jerry. You know that.† â€Å"How am I gonna shoot rabid wolves if my gun’s in the case?† â€Å"Shoot?† I put my finger in my ear and jiggled it. â€Å"What?† â€Å"Me and the other men.† He puffed out his chest. His beer belly went with it. â€Å"We’re gonna do what you cops haven’t.† I glanced up and down the street. The tourists were gone. Only the gun-toting citizens remained. Vigilantes. I hated these guys. â€Å"Yeah, well you’re gonna have a tough time without your gun.† I headed for my car. â€Å"Huh?† Jerry danced around behind me as if the beer he’d already drunk today needed to be released right now. Maybe I’d get lucky and he’d relieve himself on the street. Then I could arrest him and there’d be one less drunken idiot in the woods. â€Å"Thass my gun. You can’t do that.† â€Å"Actually, I can.† I unloaded the thing and pocketed the bullets, then laid it on the passenger seat of my car. â€Å"You can pick it up from Zee when you’re sober. Bring along your case.† â€Å"Zelda?† He shook his head and put up his hands. â€Å"Aw, Jessie. You know, she scares the crap out of me.† â€Å"You, me, and everyone else in town. That’s why she’s in charge of the guns.† Since Jerry and I had had dealings before, he didn’t argue. He went home. No doubt to get another gun. I picked up my radio, not bothering to give my call sign, since I wasn’t technically working. â€Å"I need to talk to Clyde right now.† â€Å"He isn’t here. Can I help you?† The voice was new – young, hopeful. She wouldn’t last. â€Å"Yeah, find him. Tell him we’ve got armed citizens all over town and the tourists are leaving.† I spent the next hour confiscating weapons. When my car was full and my pockets weighted with bullets, I drove to the station. I knew I was fighting a losing battle. These guys all had more guns. They’d be out in the woods come nightfall. Someone was going to get shot. I could only hope that that someone wasn’t me. Clyde had never materialized, which was strange. For all his minor annoyances, he had always been on top of things. No Mandenauer, either. Not so strange – considering the source. After I’d tagged, recorded, then locked up all the guns, I did manage to find Zee. In the break room with a cup of coffee on her left, a lit cigarette on her right, and a roast beef sandwich the size of a small dog in the center. I swear she ate red meat at every meal. Zee’s longevity was a never-ending mystery, like so many others. I’d heard stories of Great-aunt Helga who smoked all her life and lived to be a hundred and four, contrasted with stories of jogging health-food fanatics who keeled over at forty-two. Go figure. Since Zee was enjoying herself, I backed out of the break room so she could continue. â€Å"Where you goin’ ?† She didn’t even turn my way. The woman had ears like a bat. And she looked like one, too. â€Å"I need to find Clyde.† â€Å"Sit.† Zee indicated the chair to her right. With a glance at the smoldering cigarette, I took the one to her left. â€Å"Want half?† She pointed at the sandwich. The beef hung out of the bread – thick, red, and juicy. The scent, combined with that of horseradish, reminded me of the wolf pyre in the woods. I shook my head and swallowed hard. Zee shrugged. â€Å"More for me.† She made short work of the sandwich. The woman could certainly eat. How she could be stick-thin was another of life’s little mysteries. Although now that I thought about it, Zee had a habit of gorging a day here, a day there, then existing on cigarettes and coffee in between. With a sigh and a pat for her distended belly, she sat back and lifted her cigarette. I made a face. She blew smoke rings at me. I waved them away. â€Å"You know I hate that.† â€Å"Which is why I do it.† She winked. â€Å"I hear some evidence has turned up missing.† â€Å"Yeah.† â€Å"Since I’m in charge of the evidence room, that upsets me.† The sharp tap of her fingernail against the table punctuated Zee’s irritation. I braced myself for the explosion. Instead, she took another drag and blew it out slower than slow. â€Å"I didn’t exactly want to dance a jig when I heard.† â€Å"Any clue where the stuff is?† â€Å"If I knew, then it wouldn’t be missing.† She lifted one eyebrow. â€Å"Are you getting smart with me?† â€Å"No, ma’am. I need to find Clyde.† â€Å"Good luck. He went ten-seven after he left the hospital.† â€Å"Then I’ll call him at home.† I shoved back my chair. Zee grabbed my arm. â€Å"Leave him be.† Something in Zee’s voice made me stay where I was. â€Å"Why?† She took another drag on her cigarette, blew the smoke out the corner of her mouth in a stream that shot away from me for a change. â€Å"He’s taking it hard.† â€Å"What?† â€Å"Clyde went to school with Mel’s dad. He had to tell Tony what happened. Cherry’s a mess.† â€Å"Oh.† I didn’t know what else to say. â€Å"I told Clyde about the tourists and the gun freaks. He called in some extra help from Clearwater.† I thought of the amount of citizenry with guns, the depth, darkness, and expanse of the woods. . â€Å"That’ll work.† My sarcasm must have been showing, because Zee snorted. â€Å"Who knows, maybe the idiots will thin out the wolf population.† â€Å"Or the other way around.† â€Å"Either way, we win.† I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry. â€Å"Heard from your mom lately?† Zee asked. â€Å"Who?† Zee lit another cigarette from the embers of the first. â€Å"Guess not.† She took a deep drag and let the smoke drift out on a contented sigh. She and I hadn’t had a good talk in a long time. Considering our age difference, you wouldn’t think we could. But Zee was young at heart, despite the probable black tar therein. She was the best friend I’d ever had, and I loved her. â€Å"You gonna tell Mom about the guy?† â€Å"What guy?† â€Å"Don’t screw with me, girl. Cadotte. Is he as good as he looks?† â€Å"When did you see him? And how do you know†¦ † I fumbled for a word. â€Å"Anything?† â€Å"I have my sources.† She no doubt did. Sources she’d never reveal to me. The woman knew everything that went on in Miniwa. It was downright terrifying. And often quite handy. Unless it was me she knew everything about. I narrowed my eyes. â€Å"You didn’t tell Clyde, did you?† Zee shook her head. â€Å"Clyde’s got enough problems right now. He thinks of you as his daughter – or near enough. He’d kill Cadotte if he found out you were banging him.† â€Å"Nice,† I murmured. Though banging was probably a pretty good word, considering what we’d been doing. But I was more interested in Zee’s observation of Clyde’s feelings for me. â€Å"Clyde thinks of me like a daughter?† heard the hope in my voice and cursed myself. I’d never had a father. I didn’t need one now. Zee contemplated me a moment. â€Å"Sure. Just like I think of you as the granddaughter I’ll never have.† â€Å"No gramma worth her salt would ever use the word banging.† Zee cackled. â€Å"Aren’t you glad?† â€Å"Damn straight.† Zee and I had talked about many things over the years, but mostly present tense. What we’d done today, what we’d like to do tomorrow, whose butt was better than Jimmy Smits’s. She’d told me once that her family was dead. She’d come to Miniwa because she had nowhere else to go and stayed because she liked the trees. Her expression had been so sad at the time, I never had the heart to ask her anything about her past again. â€Å"So what are you gonna tell Mummy Dearest about the guy?† â€Å"Uh, nothing?† â€Å"That would be my advice. She’d have a conniption.† â€Å"You got that right.† Zee had met my mother once. It had been hate at first sight – on both their parts. My mother said I clung to Zee like moss to a tree just to annoy her, and maybe she was right. But Zee had given me more affection and support in the years I had worked with her than my mother had given me all of my life. Pathetic but true. â€Å"Although I might have to agree with Mummy on this one.† I gaped. â€Å"What?† Zee shrugged. â€Å"Unless you’re just doing him.† He’d actually been doing me – quite often – but that was my business. â€Å"There’s nothing serious starting up with you and him, is there?† Zee was staring at me too closely. I began to sweat. â€Å"You haven’t mistaken sex for love or anything, have you?† â€Å"Of course not. Do I look stupid?† â€Å"Never said that you did. I just don’t want you to get hurt.† â€Å"And that would happen because†¦ ?† â€Å"Mixed relationships never work out.† I knew Zee didn’t much care for the Indians, but I’d never expected her to be so blatant in her prejudice. â€Å"What are you trying to say, Zee?† â€Å"I went out with a beautiful man once.† Her eyes went dreamy. â€Å"It was nice at first. But not for long. He actually thought I should be grateful.† She snorted. â€Å"Women propositioned him right in front of me like I wasn’t even there.† I blinked. â€Å"By mixed, you mean – â€Å" â€Å"Cadotte’s hot, Jessie. You’re†¦ † She lifted one shoulder, then lowered it. â€Å"Not. I know. Big deal.† â€Å"Now, now. No need to get testy. Face the facts. You aren’t Marilyn Monroe. A guy like him, pretty soon he’ll start listening to all those people who are asking him what he sees in you.† I’d thought the same thing. But the more I got to know Cadotte, the less I could see him caring what people thought. Second Shift appeared in the doorway. She glanced at Zee, flinched, then focused on me. â€Å"Jessie, we got trouble in the woods.† â€Å"No shit,† Zee muttered. â€Å"If you can’t be constructive†¦ † I began. â€Å"Shut the fuck up,† Zee finished. It was, after all, her favorite saying. â€Å"What’s the matter?† I asked the youngster, who appeared to have swallowed a frog. â€Å"The um†¦ uh†¦ † She waved her hand back toward the command center. â€Å"Two words?† I held up two fingers, then tugged on my ear. â€Å"Sounds like?† She tilted her head and stared. â€Å"Don’t confuse her, Jessie.† Zee slurped what must be, by now, ice-cold coffee. â€Å"You never let me have any fun.† I sighed. â€Å"The um†¦ uh†¦ what?† I asked. â€Å"The other patrol. Two Adam Four.† Henry. â€Å"What about him?† â€Å"Shots fired in the forest. Screaming. Something about an ambulance. Backup. Help.† My gaze met Zee’s. â€Å"Let the games begin,† she muttered.

Rene Ryman free essay sample

Week 1 Case Study Professor Rene Ryman Case Problems – Chapter 1 – Question 1, parts a through d 1. A. How did Pine Valley Furniture go about developing its information systems? Why do you think the company chose this option? What other options were available? Pine Valley started small with the owner Alex Schuster just taking orders from customers for his custom furniture. Eventually each department had its own system, but they were still separate databases. The system has evolved into an automated system supported by in-house information system staff. I feel the company chose this option because they wanted to have their own in-house IS staff to maintain their own system. They could have outsourced the creation and support of their current system but they see the value in being self sufficient. B. One option available to Pine Valley Furniture was an enterprise-wide system. What features does an enterprise-wide system, such as SAP, provide?

How Evil Is Represented In Macbeth and Lord of the Flies Essay Example

How Evil Is Represented In Macbeth and Lord of the Flies Essay Example How Evil Is Represented In Macbeth and Lord of the Flies Paper How Evil Is Represented In Macbeth and Lord of the Flies Paper Essay Topic: Literature Lord Of the Flies Macbeth is a play, which was written by William Shakespeare between the reigns of Elizabeth 1 and James 1 in 1606. William Shakespeare had written many plays and poems during his era. Macbeth is one of the most popular amongst his works and is now recognised as a classic. Macbeth is a character in the play that is overcome by evil desires on his way to becoming king. The book explains what happens to Macbeth and how evil causes him to commit such actions, and how he fights to keep his throne as king. The Lord of the Flies is a novel, which is also a classic that had been written by William Golding. It is based during the Second World War, when a group of young boys are fleeing England to safety, but on their way, their plane crashes down onto a deserted island. Miraculously all the Children survive but all the adults had died. The book explores how these children no older than thirteen or fourteen live on the island until rescue arrives. Evil is represented in the novel by the fight for leadership between two rivals, Jack and Ralph, and how the other children live with this. Both the play and the novel have evil themes within them, which is reacted to by the characters. I will be comparing the ways evil is represented in Macbeth and The Lord of the Flies as well as exploring the different attitudes of the characters. At the start of Macbeth, evil is first introduced with three witches discussing when they shall meet again with Macbeth. An impression of the images of witches is long hair, long cloaks, large hats and all these items must be in black. In The Lord of the Flies, the boys gather together after Piggy and Ralph find a conch and blow it. After these boys gather together they spot another group of boys heading towards them and are described: : but each boy wore a square black cap with a silver badge in it. Their bodies from throat to ankle, were hidden by black cloaks which bore a long silver cross on the left breast and each neck was finished off with a hambone frill. (The Lord of the Flies- chapter 1- pg26) These boys are a choir and are led by Jack who is the head of the choir. The way they are dressed is like the image a person would get of witches. The cloaks that they were wearing had a silver cross on, and as this war was during the time of Adolph Hitler, the person who had many, many Jews killed, it is a symbol of his Nazi group. Just like when the witches create an image of evil, above are two images in which evil represented within Jacks group. Macbeth had arrived back from battle after defeating the Norwegians and taking the Thane of Cawdor prisoner. King Duncan is told of this and orders for the Thane of Cawdor to be killed and the title to be transferred to Macbeth. Later on, Macbeth and Banquo have a run in with the witches. He is told that he will become Thane of Cawdor and then king, and that Banquos children will be kings. Rosse tells Macbeth that he has been made Thane of Cawdor, but later he hears King Duncan has made his son Malcolm as the next king. A part of what the witches had told him has become true but he becoming king hasnt. From this moment on Macbeth starts to think evil due to hearing this: Let not light see my black and deep desires; The eye wink at the hand, yet let that be, Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see. (Macbeth- Act 1 Scene 4- Lines 51-53) Macbeth is contemplating whether he should commit murder in order to get his way, which reflects his arrogance. Similarly in The Lord of the Flies, Jack starts to show arrogance from the opening of the novel. The boys decide a chief need to be appointed, but Jack with simple arrogance speaks out: I ought to be chief, because Im chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp. (The Lord of the Flies- chapter 1- pg29) Jack just like Macbeth wants to appoint themselves as leaders, due to their arrogance, which they dont realise, but even though they are arrogant, the quotes reveal that they both have ambition. The only difference is between Jack and Macbeth that can be spotted so far is that Macbeth is willing to commit evil in order to fulfil his ambition, but in Jacks case it cant be seen how he wants to achieve his ambition. Later on in the play, Macbeth kills Duncan and frames the guards with the help of Lady Macbeth. Duncans sons Malcolm and Donalbain flee Scotland fearing their safety. The murder that had taken place had been taken late at night and that it was so horrid that even the nature got scared: Macbeth: I have done the deed (i.e. the murder). Didst though not hear a noise? Lady Macbeth: I heard the owl scream, and the crickets cry. Did not you speak? (Macbeth- Act 2 Scene 2- Lines 14-15) Even though the murder took place two scenes later, it was still late night. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth had planned to perform the wicked act at night. As murder is already evil, the atmosphere of it being late and gloomy had added to the atmosphere. This evil can be seen also in The Lord of the Flies when Simon faces his death. Simon is returning after seeing The Lord of the Flies and is shouting to the boys that there is no beast. It is late and dark, the boys are dancing and feasting, they hear some noises, they think it is the beast and viciously attack it only to find out that it was Simon. Going to be a storm, said Ralph. The dark sky was shattered by a blue white scar. (The Lord of the Flies- chapter 9- pg187-188) The similarities can be seen in how evil is represented in the novel and the play. William Shakespeare and William Golding both have used the same ways to represent the evil and similar ways to emphasise it through the atmosphere and nature. Another resemblance that is seen in both texts is the theme of peace. In Macbeth, whilst Duncan was king and ruled there were no problems, no inappropriate murders, and everyone lived in peace and harmony. As soon as Duncan is killed Macbeth takes over and problems arise. Macbeth wants to keep his position but he gets information from the witches, who lure him into committing evil acts in order to keep his status. Macbeth orders for many killings to take place. At the start of the play when Macbeth and Banquo meet the witches, they said Banquos children will be king, which had got Macbeth thinking. Macbeth decides that Banquo and his son must be killed, so he persuades the murders to attack Banquo and his son, Fleance. The murders kill Banquo but his son escapes. Macbeth has been Possessed with evil at this present time. There was also peace when Ralph was in charge of the boys at the start of the novel. This peace was broken when Jack got obsessed with his killing of pigs, and went off to make his own group. The rules were broken for the first time and this was when the peace and unity were broken: Jack! Jack! The rules! shouted Ralph, youre breaking the rules! Who cares? (The Lord of the Flies- chapter 5- pg114) We can see that in Macbeth the one of the reasons why Macbeth is lured into committing these evil acts is because the witches had given the initiative to commit these acts. For instance when Macbeth was told that he has been made Thane of Cawdor: Rosse: And, for an earnest of a great honour, He bade me, from him, call thee Thane of Cawdor (Macbeth- Act 1 Scene 3- lines 104-105) He would have been honoured to have that position, but because the witches told him early that he would be Thane of Cawdor as well as King, he thought the witches must have been telling the truth so he had it in his head that he should be King. This caused him to lead to the planning of the murder of Duncan. Likewise in The Lord of the Flies Jack wouldnt have been taunting the children with the idea of killing and hunting if it werent for the beast. The idea of the beast gave him the power and back-up for hunting and becoming obsessed with killing. In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth was the Person also to give Macbeth the initiative to kill Duncan. She would tell Macbeth that Duncan will not live to see the next day: Lady Macbeth: O! never Shall sun that morrow see! (Macbeth- Act 1 Scene 5- Line 60) Lady Macbeth is referring about Duncan in this sentence. She is telling Macbeth that Duncan will not be able to live to see the light tomorrow as he will kill him. This is a push factor for Macbeth upon which he should murder Duncan, as he has his wife whom will support him after the act takes place. Correspondingly in The Lord of the Flies, Roger is the exact representation of Lady Macbeth as he had joint Jacks tribe when they split up. This had given a confidence boost towards Jack as he knew he had people behind him to help him along the way. Jack is obsessed just like Macbeth with murder. It is as if it is a hobby for them. In Macbeth, Banquo, Malcolm, Macduff and many others have seen what Macbeth has become. They see that he committed many murders and was responsible for the murder of Duncan. They all fight back in the end and manage to kill Macbeth with their various armies. The same is in The Lord of the Flies, Piggy, Ralph and Simon realise that Jack and his tribe have become savages and have lost control of humanity. This can be seen when Jack and his tribe start to hunt and dont care about rescue. Their obsession has led them to loss of self-control as they end up hunting Ralph wanting to kill him. To conclude, William Shakespeare and William Golding both have managed to convey evil themes directly through evil acts such as murder as well as indirectly through the atmosphere and nature. They have expressed how the other characters react to the acts taking place and what they do to try and resolve it. I feel as if the authors have done an excellent job in conveying the evil to the reader and representing how people are convinced to commit such acts. The similarities can be seen between Jack and Macbeth in the texts. They have much in common and that is in an evil concept. They both enjoy killing and have an obsession with it, causing them to lose control of what happens around them. The other characters like Piggy, Ralph, Malcolm, Macduff have realised what Macbeth and Jack had become. They realised that they would have to act if they wanted to change things around. They did this by speaking out aloud and through physical battle. The authors have used the characters to symbolise the current situations faced by people in the present world. The Lord of the Flies along with Macbeth informs us that the human nature cannot be seen with the naked eye. It only reveals itself when it comes across a situation in, which it cannot hold itself any further. I believe that these texts illustrate that if there is something that needs to be changed then people should strive out and try to make a change, just like Macduff and Ralph did.

College as a Student-Athlete Essay Example | Topics and Well Written Essays - 1000 words

College as a Student-Athlete - Essay Example This paper would further discuss the life and activities of student-athletes and the areas which are affected by their involvement in sports. Research suggests that athletic involvement negatively influences the academic performance of a student (Kissinger & Miller 2009, p. 202). The time requirements of sports may be a factor that ends up in the underperformance by students in academic field. A non-athlete student may be more focused and able to manage the time commitments of education as compared to a student-athlete who requires to distribute time between both areas i.e. academics and sports. The reason behind this negative impact on academic results may be translated as poor time management skills, low motivation, high levels of stress and more time and energy utilization on one field over other. Students’ preferences and personal interest also play a vital role in affecting the performance in different fields. If the student prioritizes activities as sports being superior to academic results and participation then his interest and priorities might affect the academic performance. Studies reveal a declining graduation rate among student-athletes which further illuminates the influence of sports participation on students’ academic performance and results. ... They lose hopes to manage the two difficult tasks together. Negative comments and criticism from the coaches, leaders, teachers and fellows may further influence their self-esteem. Lower self-esteem is linked to poor performance in each aspect of life including social, academic, work, sports and daily life. Student-athletes are more likely to make wrong decisions due to increasing stress (Fertman 2009, pp. 30-34). Stress alone is responsible for negative effects on respiratory system. It weakens the immune system and increase the vulnerability of a person to asthma, bronchitis, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. The highly stressful situations in student-athletes’ life may, hence, also affect their health (Fertman 2009, p. 30). Moreover, the high stress is often related to the insufficient time for their personal needs like sleeping, relaxing, socializing and spending time with family. This fact causes a negative impact on their mental development. Time management is one of the biggest and common issues that student-athletes face. They have more work to be done than non-athlete students, in the same time period available to all other students. Student-athletes are required to manage time between the most important factors of their life i.e. studies and sports. The time limitations do not allow them to participate and involve in both areas as passionately and energetically as non-athlete students do. This does not only restricts their performance excellence but also affects their enthusiasm to achieve high in both areas. A factor which needs to be discussed here is the financial needs of students who are living on their own. Diversity and globalization
