Causes of Delinquency

 Causes of Delinquency

Influence from peers is the most common cause of delinquent behaviour among children. According

to research, young people who build ties with positive individuals and organisations who pursue

positive commitments and it tend to avoid delinquent behavior are less likely to engage in such

behaviour. On the other side, juveniles can be involved in activities that do not have specific goals or

commitments, and this can be detrimental to their development. It is possible that these types of

activities will result in turbulent relationships, which may in turn encourage delinquent behaviour.

Drinking and smoking are examples of these behaviours. Other behaviours include those that are not

based on a commitment, such as youngsters becoming engrossed in television viewing or spending

an excessive amount of time watching movies. Despite the fact that the majority of people are not

harmed as a result of these activities. According to research, the more time spent suspended with

friends while watching television, the greater the likelihood of engaging in deviant behaviour.

An additional component that has been proven to enhance juvenile misbehaviour is the effect of

one's family. Also regarded to be a contributing factor to more delinquent behaviour than peer

pressure is the impact of family members. According to study, families with a weak emotional tie

between the members of the family are more likely to have juveniles who turn out to be delinquent

in their later years.

Because of psychological difficulties such as rejection and low self-esteem, which can emerge in

juveniles, delinquent behaviour may be a result of their experiences. Trauma and low self-esteem

are two more factors that might contribute to psychological difficulties, both of which are associated

with delinquency. These two can come from a variety of different sources outside of the family.

Children who have been abused or who have been exposed to domestic violence are more likely to

become delinquent. Children who are raised by criminals and drug users are more likely to become

delinquent, according to some experts who have connected genes to delinquency. There is also the

possibility of danger in a family in which there are no effective communication routes between


There may be difficulties that children raised in this type of family wish to explore, but there may be

a lack of an audience to hear their thoughts and feelings. They are more likely to become involved in

delinquent behaviour as a result of these.

Families that are not traditional, such as reconstituted households and single-parent families, can

also be a source of delinquency. Children who are raised by single parents or divorced parents,

according to research, are more likely to be delinquent than children who are raised in typical

homes, the findings indicate. When it comes to forecasting delinquent behaviour, race is a significant

determinant. The primary reason that race is a decisive element in delinquency is that minority

groups are not treated in the same manner as other races are. The upshot is that they live

dissatisfied lives, which can lead to hostility and, ultimately, delinquent behaviour.Once a history of

delinquency has been established in a particular race, peer influence serves to fuel recidivism and

contribute to the commission of new offences As a result, these are some of the most significant

reasons of adolescent delinquency.
