A sociopath does not feel emotion towards others, and only looks out for the good of himself, which perfectly exemplifies the protagonist in this novel. The word sociopath describes a person who has little to no emotions towards people and other living things beside themselves. People may think that all sociopaths are psychotic serial killers, but that is not the case. There are many ordinary citizens who suffer from the psychological disorder. Symptoms of a sociopath are pathological lying, lack of remorse, incapacity of love, need for stimulation, lack of empathy, juvenile delinquency, unreliability, criminal or entrepreneurial versatility, and shallow emotions.
Violent, preventable crimes by minors have long plagued America’s larger cities but have scarcely been punished because of the age of the perpetrators. Protected by a lenient and highly outdated juvenile justice system, violent youth have taken advantage of such beneﬁts and have run rampant in our cities. High proﬁle slayings are quite the norm on the evening news, and every once in a while, disaster strikes and we lose a large number of lives at the hands of young offenders. And sadly, naive America continues to lose more and more lives at the hands of reckless teens and repeat offenders because we choose to give them as many chances as they need so long as they are not legal adults. Unfortunately, we have to lose and destroy more lives because we refuse to
Child abuse is emotional when you are constantly blaming or putting down a child; excessive yelling, shaming. It is likely that emotional child abuse is greatly underreported, since it can be difficult to detect and difficult to document. Emotional child abuse includes acts of commission or omission by the parents and other caregivers that could cause the child to have serious behavioral, emotional, or mental disorders. In some instances of emotional child abuse, the acts of parents or other caregivers alone, without any harm yet evident in the child's behavior or condition, are sufficient to warrant the intervention of child protective services. For example, the parents or caregivers may use extreme or bizarre forms of punishment, such as confinement of a child in a dark closet.
Introduction The people who often commit hate crimes are not mentally ill, no signs of schizophrenia or manic depressive disorders. The do often share a very large amount of aggression and antisocial behavior. They can be very troubled, disturbed, extremely problematic members of one’s community and they post a great risk for future violence. (Tori) In this paper I am going to describe the profile of a person who commits hate crimes, why they choose to do them, who they target and ways we can maybe prevent the crimes from happening. The person who commits hate crimes will most likely plan their attack more so than someone who just commits crime on a regular basis.
Spanking Children Many parents think that spanking is a good way to correct the bad attitudes and bad things that children usually do. Parents usually spank children for these reasons, but parents should know that children can get some different [additional] problems because of spanking. Children can get depression, bad relationships and mental problems. Parents are asking themselves if spanking children is a good way to discipline children or not? Therefore, according to the latest studies of some organizations such as children protection, spanking can create physiological problems such as depression in a child.
For example, one myth that has been accepted throughout the years is “It’s only child abuse if it’s violent.” (Segal, Smith, Saisan) People perceive abuse as only a problem of physicality; however, abuse comes in many different forms. The other forms of abuse are neglect, sexual, and emotional. All these can be just as damaging as physical abuse. Also, many people have talked about and say that, “Child abuse doesn’t happen in “good” families.” (Segal, Smith, Saisan) abuse can happen in any situation at any time. Child abuse crosses a wide line or racial, economic, and cultural situations.
Strain theory is as sociologic theory that tries to explain why people commit crimes. It explains the likely hood of delinquency in two parts one is the addition of strain in a persons life and the second portion is the persons coping mechanisms to combat the strain that they experience. Another large part of strain theory explains how people measure the positive and negative things that will happen whenever they commit any crime or delinquent act. We know that juveniles are involved in more crime than adults and we can also use strain theory to help explain why this is happening. Being a juvenile comes with many different strains that most adults do not have to face as well as having far less consequence in many cases is they do something wrong or make a mistake.
Effects of Bullying on Children Joanna Solis American InterContinental University ENG106 Professor Bennett May 14, 2012 Abstract Bullying causes so many devastating effects in people’s lives, especially children because many times they do not know what exactly is happening around them, much less the consequences words or sometimes even a push or a shove can have. Bullies need to understand that there are consequences for them too, in the long run, they could be faced with the same faith as the ones they themselves bullied. Whether it’s banter or just playing around, there’s a fine line between teasing and bullying. Effects of Bullying on Children Bullying has always been a part of American culture and it is seen in almost every school across the country. There are even some people that view it as a “normal” situation in which, in their opinion, everyone has to deal with at some point in time.
Conduct disorder refers to a set of problem behaviours exhibited by children and adolescents, which may involve the violation of a person, their rights or their property. How does this disorder affect the health of young people? While conduct disorder has no visible or physical symptoms, it has great affect on adolescent’s mental health. Recurring symptoms of conduct disorder are mainly cruel and aggressive behaviour, such as arsonism, lying, vandalism, truancy and illicit drug abuse. Sufferers will often run away from home, and become hard to control, as they are not concerned with others feelings.
This is because most teens tend to offend by committing non-violent crimes, only once or a few times, and only during adolescence. It is when adolescents offend repeatedly or violently that their offending is likely to continue beyond adolescence, and become increasingly violent. It is also likely that if this is the case, they began offending, and displaying antisocial behaviour, even before reaching adolescence.
