Describe a major problem often experienced by adolescents (e.g., anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or delinquency). Delinquency and gang membership is described in our text as a rapidly growing social problem in the United States. While not all juvenile delinquents are part of a gang, in most situations, they are committing their crimes with other juveniles. What are its likely causes? Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman (2010) mentioned in their papers that there can be possible reasons why someone commits a crime or does something that is not expected. When we say crime, it can be anything like rape, killing someone, stealing or theft. There are different crimes out there and of different degree of the crime. According to the information gathered by Zastrow and Navarre (1979), the cause of criminal acts are depending on the current mindset of the criminals. There have been studies trying to understand why people commit such things like having violent behavior and wanting to hurt someone yet there are no concrete evidence yet as to how people can do such things or what motivates them. There are some though who opts to join groups and become gang members to try to show and do bad things to others hence membership to a juvenile group is considered as a way of aiming to do such bad things already. The differential association theory, anomie theory, deviant subcultures theory and control theory are the four theories we have regarding the current topic that we have. These four theories though agrees on one thing, that once a person got a group of people supporting his desires to do bad, then that person will be encouraged to do more unlikely things hence joining fraternities and gangs increases the possibility of someone doing a juvenile act. Aside from people they are in group with, there are other factors that can also influence the behavior of teenagers and other people that can lead them to do such things. Among the said factors are peer pressure, family background, the cultural background and social background they have and even their financial backgrounds. Race and gender also impacts the way an individual behaves and sometime, acceptance in the older
