Juvenile Delinquency and A Child's Emotional Needs
This 18 page report discusses the fact that juvenile delinquency is directly related to a child not having his or her emotional needs met at a very early age. Issues associated with juvenile delinquency are always multi-faceted and present numerous challenges to parents, educators social service agencies, law enforcement, the court systems and, of course, to the actual child. Whether a child is abused, raised in poverty, has physical and/or mental problems, or any number of other difficulties, it is always the child who suffers and the child who should be kept at the forefront of society’s collective consciousness in addressing the problems of juvenile delinquency.
