When parents exhibit some evil characters within themselves, the habits may flow into the children, and they too may exhibit similar habits in society. Furthermore, factors such as divorce, family disputes, supervision, discipline, single-parent family, and unmarried births among other family trends play a significant role in juvenile delinquency.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
