Example text

This was an idea that did not sit well with many of his contemporaries, who believed that children, although conceived in sin, were born innocent. They felt that the minds of children were blank screens on which the rules of culture and civilization could be written and that children’s behavior was determined entirely by the environment. There is much of the nature-versusnurture, or heredity-versus-environment, debate in this disagreement between Freud and his contemporaries. Freud was suggesting that biological instincts, which lead to self-serving behaviors, such as forcibly taking pails and shovels, were part of our inherent makeup, just as they were in animals—a concept he no doubt derived in part from Darwin.

The surveys are administered anonymously. Selfreport surveys are likely to indicate criminal behavior for which arrests were not made, and therefore would not be included in FBI statistics. However, the accuracy of the information obtained from these surveys depends entirely on how honest the respondents are. Because the adolescents are being asked about sensitive information, they may not always choose to be honest in their answers. Since the surveys are also an attempt to get a clear picture of the entire population of juveniles in the country, the adolescents surveyed have to be reasonably representative of all adolescents in the country.

The failure of this transformation leads to delinquent behavior in adolescence. Therefore, understanding the development of delinquent behavior requires a comprehension of how that transformation to socialized behavior occurs, as well as what factors lead to the failure of the child to become a socialized being.
