  2. I think that if steps are not taken at an early age to correct behavior problems, then the adolsenct is destined to countuine into a patter of criminal behiours. I think that as the adolesent travels down this path of devient behaviors each act will countine to increase in severeity.

    Am I on the right track?

  4. After teaching HSchool for several years, I am convinced criminal behaviour seldom starts in teen years, the time to stop it is when the kid is 5 years old. Yes, I know, some folks are just antisocial, or have antisocial psychopathic personalities, but on those, who knows how to correct the behaviour? I know of many who claim to, but the evidence is contrary to my experience with teens.
