All teens should have a chance to be involved with others in a positive way, and without community groups going out and searching for them, its not going to happen. It is sad to me that people in control who have the opportunity to change lives of young people would rather let them go about their lives rather than coming around them and leading them in the right path.Teens need role models in their lives, and when adults disown them, then they feel worthless. Good role models set positive examples for teenagers and help counter negative influences they meet during teenage years. It is common for teenagers to view movie stars, sports figures, singers and TV actors as role models. While entertainment figures can serve as positive influences, teenagers gain greater influence from role models they can communicate and form relationships with.
what do we mean by youth work? The following is a summary of Bernard Davies chapter on what do we mean by youth work. It would be hard to define youth work in a few words the fundamental meaning is working with young people, but what that entails will be different for every youth worker the variety of settings and situations they encounter. A definition of the purpose of youth work is to work with young people to facilitate their personal, social and educational development, help them gain a voice and encourage integration into wider society. Sapin (2009) states that youth workers should encourage and support their social development as they grow from children to adults, they are apprentice adults and the youth worker is the trainer teaching them the skills needed to become qualified adults.
The nontraditional student has likely had time to mature in areas, like learning respect for earning an honest living. A more mature person will not be interested in getting into trouble and will be more focused. Settling down with someone and partying less are both examples of a nontraditional student’s maturity. Having time off of school to get rid of bad habits that develop will help nontraditional students further their education and succeed in the future. When considering a nontraditional student versus a traditional student, it is helpful to look at what each brings to the table.
FUTURE OF THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM PROPOSAL Even though the number of juveniles have increased and seen as no hope is available, changes are needed to improve the juvenile justice system with the help from the community, family, law enforcement support system in order to reduce the recidivism. Community Involvement Community Involvement is considered as a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristics in common such as our young juveniles. Community Involvement plays a tremendous role with our juvenile youth by helping them to stay on the right path. There are a lot of community programs that will help our juvenile youth to stay focused and there are some after schools activities programs. Community Involvement have been reaching out to our at risk juveniles.
This makes students to grow up healthy, caring and responsible. But some educators and students argue that students should not be “forced” to do community service. We will discuss how the students and community could be benefited from students’ engagement. First of all, the debates continue over whether students should be “forced” to volunteer. Some students think the community service should be for students who want to help and do some good for the community.
Allowing children to be able to think independently and create their own behavior can be an effective way to allow for more autonomy, improving their motivation in many areas and get the confidence to achieve better grades in school. Pink explains that “A sense of autonomy has a powerful effect on individual performance and attitude” (88). Many parents will choose to raise and will motivate their children by how they were brought up as a child. While this may seem like a great way to raise a child, it could control motivation and behavior with the experience of pressure and demand. Parents might want to consider teaching their children about autonomous motivation which promotes greater conceptual understanding, better grades, enhanced persistence at school and in sporting activities, higher productivity, less burnout, and greater levels of psychological well-being.
Many people believe that starting to educate our children at too young of an age can cause negative effects. The most recent claim is that children who start school too young or are the youngest in their grade level tend to develop Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) (Harmon, 2010). The research referred to in this paper, which has tracked students throughout their educational years from early childhood through college and beyond shows a much different outcome. The research shows that more adults than not receive long-term benefits and develop educational and work habits that can allow them to excel throughout their lives. In addition, early childhood education also is beneficial to the community and the economy.
Rehabilitation and reintegration programs are offered to effectively reinforce positive thoughts in youngsters’ minds and aid in returning them into society as a whole. For instance, the “Second Chance Program” works to assist young adults so that they have a wide range of outlooks in determining the consequences to their actions; youth are also required to acknowledge their accomplishments to rebuild their self-esteem. As quoted by an attendee of this program, “these programs help you by showing you how to do it instead of telling you, there is a difference.” From multiple perspectives, prevention programs referred to by the YCJA is a reasonable way to deal with young adulthood who come upon challenging circumstances with the law; Canada would also be labelled as a “better place” with less teenagers that get in
Their second experiment was the strength of attachment in a group of 18month old children. These children had around 30 hours of day care per week. From the findings the 2-3 yr olds were good at coping with social situations and negotiating with each other. The strange situation experiment with the 18 month yr old children who had high intensity day care were just as distressed when separated from their mothers as those who had low intensity day care. The conclusion was day care had positive effect on development of peer relationships in 2-3 yr olds.
These relationships are crucial to the development of these young and still impressionable children because these relationships can help create trust outside of what has been learned in the home and some will learn friendship bonds that may last a lifetime. But there are the exceptions from this age group during this time that promote other worries for the children and parents.
