Parenting technique and deviant behaviour
Aim of this study was to examine the effect the family has on an adolescent’s behaviour. It is believed that parents have direct and indirect control over their children. Previous investigations have indicated that parents directly influence their children’s’ behaviour through the parenting techniques utilized. Parental support is the largest influence on creating preferable behaviour in adolescents. Along with the direct influence from parents, the parents have indirect control over their children where they live in and get socialized with the peers. Through these bonds, adolescents often get along with the juveniles where they succumb to the peer pressure that indeed causes deviant behaviour or juvenility. Adolescents learn greatly from their peers. The family has an indirect control over peers through community watch and their parenting techniques; teaching the child not to succumb to peer pressure. This information is vital due to the presence of juveniles in the criminal justice system.
