Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend the course for anyone taking criminal justice classes, because people would have a bigger understanding of how to treat children if they get arrested for crimes they commit. People would be able to figure out how to prevent most children from becoming juvenile delinquents. People who are or soon to be parents would also benefit from this course because they can identify any warning signs that would most likely make children into juvenile delinquents.
The highlights of the course for me was the individual theories section and the corrections and treatment part of the course. About the individual theories, they were about several reasons why children would become juvenile delinquents (young criminals), on of the theories suggests that some of the children do the crimes they do out of habit and bad or the lack of parenting from either guardian or parent. Some children commit crimes to receive income for their daily living. Other would commit crimes out of impulse, which the crimes including underage drinking to taking illegal drugs like weed or cocaine. For treatment and corrections, children would be treated in several ways in order to be rehabilitated. One of the ways is through putting children on probation, in order to give the child a chance to see if the child will try his best to be on his best behavior to restitution, where the child has to "restore" what the victim of the child's crime has lost. This would be paying the victims hospital bills to paying the store for any damages done.

Advice for students:
Always read and learn about the juvenile justice system and do more research before hand, so for instance if you finish doing some writing and work for the class from Monday through Wednesday take that extra day on Thursday to so some research on the subject of the class you would have to do next week. Ever week for my class there was always a new subject for me to study in the juvenile justice class, and it's always better to get prepared for the class next week, than to be caught off guard with new information first. On Thursday you can do some of the next week work before the next week comes into, and that can help anyone feel more confident in doing their work.
