The best way to reduce youth crimes is to educate their parents with parental skills. To what extent you agree or disagree?

It is true that more and more young people are getting involved in crimes, and how to best address
this
critical issue is an ongoing debate. There are many ways to prevent youth crimes,
one
of which is better parenting skills;
however
, those ways need to be carried out simultaneously if they are to be effective. On the
one
hand, parents are the closest people to their children and more likely to have an impact on their children’s behaviour. In fact, a vast number of youth crimes nowadays are the result of inappropriate child rearing, lack of childcare and education about crime alike.
Therefore
, it is totally reasonable to say that improving parenting skills will promise a decrease in juvenile offences.
However
, education at home alone is not enough since there are a lot of kids who are not willing to listen to their parents. And children in
this
day and age spend the largest amount of time at school, and
therefore
are more likely to be influenced by their teachers or friends.
For example
, in my home country Vietnam, many high school students are susceptible to negative peer pressure.
This
usually leads to the increasing use of alcohol or drugs, all of which are primary contributors to crimes at
this
age. These facts suggest that we should introduce education about the consequences
one
may face when committing an offence in the school curriculum as well as help children manage negative peer pressure. In conclusion, enhancing skills to educate children at home is a good way to curb juvenile delinquencies; but I think there is no
one
best way to do
this
as different measures need to be taken at the same time.
