Unit 5 Case Assignment

Leslie Martinez February 20, 2021 Jarvis Brothers My opinion is that it depends on each child individually. Whether such children commit crimes in the future depends on their deviant parents. Children do not know right from wrong when they are growing up, which may set a bad example for them if their parents commit crimes. On the other hand, there are some children who know that what their parents do isn't the right thing. As they grow older, they might end up splitting off from their parents and no longer having a relationship with them. However, other children begin to follow their parents' lead and start committing the same or even more serious crimes. Therefore, it is difficult to say if this is truly hereditary because all children are capable of experiencing change as they grow older. Criminal behavior can be passed from generation to generation in some situations, although in others it may not. In my opinion, it all depends on how much resources the children have available to them. Close relatives or teachers who look out for them can help them understand that crimes are bad, and just because their parents commit them, doesn't make it okay for them to do the same. There should be consequences for children with deviant parents who commit crimes. It is equally important that the parents are held responsible for the kid's crimes. Did the parents set a good example? Was their child taught what is right and wrong? Even if they weren't around, were they ever around to supervise their child. When parents don't seem to be involved with their children's daily lives, they should be held accountable. Therefore, as stated in the article, all those children who committed crimes had parents who committed crimes themselves. In other words, it was unlikely that they taught their children right from wrong by keeping the crime present in their lives.
