Adolescence is the successful product of numerous generations of evolutionary memoirs. They are the children of particular parents with their own backgrounds and ideas about child nurturing. They have their own exclusive sets of experiences and their ways of understanding and reacting to those experiences. Adolescents need room by parents to open up, mature and grow. However, this is a unique time in their life, so parental control is not as clear. I strongly agree as the article mentioned that parenting behavior that was high in demandingness and responsiveness can result in better outcomes for children. When parents are demanding and stricter on adolescent they will be less involved in criminal behaviors. Antisocial performance may be a typical part of growing up or the beginning of a enduring pattern of criminal activity. The United Nations Guidelines for the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency stated that youthful behavior or conduct that does not conform to overall social norms and values is often part of the maturation and growth process and tends to disappear spontaneously in most individuals with the transition to adulthood. When children become adolescents, they look to make more decisions with friends and a lot of mistakes also. They want more privilege and want to act on their decision making. On the other hand, parental control during this time can influence a power struggle and divergence between parents and adolescents. Because they are not full matured, they are prone to chancy behavior. The article makes a good point that studying delinquency in young adulthood, females describe a lower level of delinquency and younger age was linked with more delinquent behavior. Suddenly, parents college education was absolutely linked with delinquency in young adulthood. The findings suggest that parental control is still significant through the period of adolescence and early parental control is still important in young adulthood.
