Delinquency Prevention Paper

Select a specific issue covered in class from our units on the family, the school, delinquent peer affiliation, or youth substance abuse, and discuss how this issue can either be prevented and/or improved upon. This will require you to conduct research on the topic of your choice and utilize critical thinking skills to discuss how to address the issue. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, child abuse and neglect, maintaining relationships with parents in prison, bullying/cyberbullying at school, high school dropout rates, vaping, youth binge drinking, gang involvement, etc. If you have an idea in mind that was not addressed in class, please reach out to me with your idea so that we can discuss whether it is relevant for this paper.
