Young Offenders - What Should The Law Do With Them?
Advantages: Local communities could try and help with the local youth and volenteer
Disadvantages: People give up on these youths and they tend to grow up to be an even bigger problem
Young Offenders - What Should The Law Do With Them? I just do not know, but it needs to start looking at the root of the problem also.
Why have we such a problem in the UK??
I know a lot of people say....I blame the parents.... and I must admit I sort of feel the same, but more than that... I blame the local communities too of where these yobs live as if more people would take proactive action, we could together make our streets safer.
I am currently doing a lot of work for a local charity, working with the children in Rugby and Warwickshire offering dance, drama, cheerleading, martial arts classes etc. The charity was designed to be able to offer free and subsidised places to young people, including the disadvantaged, under-privileged, special needs, under-academic achievers, ethnic minorities, etc., to offer opportunities in dance, drama & singing, to help develop skills and/or talents.
We are also hoping that this will be helping the community to reduce potential anti-social behaviour, and offering a healthier lifestyle within an enjoyable but structured environment!
Our aims as a charity are to act as a resource for young people living in Warwickshire by providing advice and assistance and organising programmes of physical, educational and other activities as a means of:
(a) advancing in life and helping young people by developing their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals;
(b) Advancing education for the public benefit of the performing arts, in particular but not exclusively, dance;
(c) providing recreational and leisure time activity in the interests of social welfare for people living in the area of benefit who have need by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disability, poverty or social and economic circumstances with a view to improving the conditions of life of such persons.
Its a great charity, yet when trying to get help from the local community all I seem to be getting is resistance, because the charity is neith life threatening or life saving, most of the local buisnesses are not jumping at supporting us, and this is what annoys me.....even the parents who are not in finacial difficulty or have any problems with their children and send them to the dance school, just see it as its not their problem, its not their child...so why should they help!!!!
Everybody is quick enough to shout about our local youth, but if only some of the troublemakers could get some stimulation and also guidance away from home then this may help, children need to have role models in order for them to reach their potential and if they are not getting it at home then they need it from an outside source, and if local communities would stick together and help tackle the problems I think we could make huge differences to the UK youth....my husband thinks sometimes I am seeing things through rose coloured spectacles, but I do truly believe this.
Other than doing this though, I think we need to be harder on youths when they have reached a certain level of anti social behaviour, for eg. involved in gangs and violence, shoplifting, drugs then we should be putting them on national service, or putting them in boot camps etc....... they need to make them realise what will happen to their lifes if they carry on with the type of choices they are making.....But unfortunatly sometimes all this action is just too late, and when you come to a situation when a youth has took someones life, or beat someone up so badly then I think they need to be treated in an adult way, Im sorry that I feel this way as I love children, and I hate for the fact that these kids have probally had such a bad upbringing and that why they are like they are....BUT.... if they have made that choice, then they should be treated the same as an adult in my opinion.
Kids are such a gift, and it makes me so sad when you see these kids on the streets, I would never ever let my kids walk the streets, and I would never ever accept any of this type of behaviour, I would personally take them to a boot camp and make sure it was the meanest, nastiest one around..... I love my children very much and I hope with the kind of morals I teach them and the boundarys that I have set from an early age that I will never come across my children becoming a problem to our community.
Summary: We need to get to the root course and if the goverment do not help then we need to
