Where should I start? I have defined what psychological theories and sociological theories are. But how do I define the 3 acts within these theories?

Apply 2 psychological theories and 2 sociological theories to each of the following three delinquent acts: shoplifting, breaking and entering a home, and car jacking

    Why does someone shoplift? Is it a compulsion? Is it because s/he wants the item? Is it because of peer pressure? Obviously, it could be any of these -- or maybe others.

    Which psychological and sociological theories explain any of the above causes of shoplifting?
