Question 4

  1. How should parenting be improved?
    • This is not as easy as it seems; sit down and really think about the theories over the last few units (self-control, social control, social disorganization, strain, etc.) and the reality of life (violence, income inequality, disparate treatment, historical conflict, etc.), and then think about how to improve parenting to then improve a child’s ability to regulate his or her behavior and delay gratification, consider the negative consequences, and weigh those consequences as more detrimental.
  2. A criticism of self-control theory is that as adults, it is already too late to instill levels of self-control that will inhibit criminality.
    • Do you agree with this?
    • What should be done with adults in the system? Are they a lost cause?
