This class was tough.
This course opened my understanding as well as my view f what juvenile's in America face on a day to day basis. From gang violence, to peer pressure, to bullying and me. It is hard to find the motivation to avoid crime if crime is all that I s seen and no role model to the contrary steps forward. I learned committing crime is optional juvenile offender's have choices and law enforcement cannot make those choices for them. Also, probation, parole, death penalty, and detention facilities are on the rise for juvenile offenders who cannot get it together. The politics of juvenile justice makes it difficult to view the child as a future teacher, doctor, or lawyer. It is important to remember these children are our future and working to save them is being a productive member of society.
I learned that juveniles face a lot things even trying to find their own identity as the grow up. Peer pressure can be a strong force in criminal activity. Needless to say, working with them can enforce a positive change to come forth. I learned that juvenile's need love and understanding to develop and mature. Also, anger drives a lot of behaviors for juvenile offenders.
