  • One's Youth
    290 words
    Nobody's Gonna Talk Like That Under My Roof! It can be generalized, that society's younger members, being those under the age of around twenty-five, use slang terminology, or swear, far more than people who are on the older end of the age spectrum. Many of those who are among the 'older group' would like to think that today's youth are chaotic and without values, or that it is just a factor of immaturity, which is probably true, but there is more to the issue than purely immaturity. Many things ...
  • Juveniles In Adult Courts
    935 words
    Juveniles Tried As Adults 1 Juveniles Tried As Adults 2 Trying juvenile criminals as adults is unfair. Juvenile offenders are not as cognitively developed or mature as adults and, therefore, should not be held accountable for their crimes in the same way adults are. Many tough-on-crime advocates call for certain juvenile crimes to be automatically heard in adult criminal courts with convicted criminals subject to sentencing under adult standards. Such proposals focus on the gravity of the act an...
  • Great Deal Of Independence
    437 words

Natural mentoring occurs through friendship, collegiality, teaching, coaching, and counseling that is formed from un-constructed planning (Newman, 1990, p. 41). In contrast, planned mentoring occurs through structured programs in which mentors and participants are selected and matched through formal processes (Newman, 1990, p. 43). There are many different ways to describe mentoring, but they all boil down to one thing:...
  • Violent Youths
    1,501 words
    In New York Homicide arrests of kids, ages ten through fourteen rose from 194 to 301 between 1988 and 1992 (Minerbrook, Page 36). In 1986, a majority of cases in New York City+s family court were misdemeanors; today more than 90 percent are felonies (Minerbrook, Page 36). No end to this dramatic increase in violence seems to be in sight. Youngsters used to shoot each other in the bodies, then the head. Now they shoot each other in the face. (Samuelson, Page 26). No segment of society is immune t...
  • Youth Need
    1,629 words
    Over the past ten years, the juvenile crime rate has fluctuated, leaving law enforcement officials baffled over what programs may or may not work. Some believe that strict penalties, such as adult trials, will bring an end to the rise in youth crime activity. Others believe youth need to be dealt with delicately and reformed into model citizens through therapy. One aspect that is a constant in both beliefs: it is society's responsibility to find a way of preventing children from going awry. Pres...
