belongings, esteem etc., and the following things results: • Youth get linked to a gang to receive the fundamental needs of love, care, spiritual guidance, etc. • They try to gain “respect” showing how tough or brave they are by killing or physically harming another person. In my view to combat this problem of juvenile gangs these basic needs of the children are to be and should be fulfilled. Lack of love and care due to teen parents or divorced parents is a serious issue that in my view is the root cause of the problem. So, in spite of blaming the government or police officials, the society should come forward to take the blame. The authorities have already played their roles of making laws and enforcing them. Now it’s society’s turn to take the charge by taking the moral responsibility and try to eradicate these social problems that result into juveniles turning into gangs in the quest of love, care and attention.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
