A variety of individual causes of juvenile delinquency have been presented in the lesson and readings this week. Some of these causes focus upon personal characteristics of the juvenile, while others attribute delinquency to societal causes.
In 450-500 words excluding reference and in APA format, begin by discussing whether you believe personal or societal causes have the biggest influence on juvenile delinquency.
Next, identify one specific personal characteristic or societal cause that you believe most accurately explains decisions to participate in juvenile delinquency.
Briefly defend the personal characteristic or societal cause you selected by explaining why it is more accurate than other theories presented.
