Sample text

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA] Because no two children are exactly alike, it is reasonable to expect that parents treat each of their offspring differently. I have found no pattern of child-rearing practices in one family that accounts for a youngster's becoming a criminal while his siblings become responsible citizens. Parental Untruthfulness and Crime: An Example A 6-year-old child is being told that his or her father who is in prison is there because the police and the judge have made a mistake and that the father is innocent.

What happened to them would be the last thing they would consider inflicting upon another person. 42 STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT CRIMINALS The antisocial child is open to temptations and opportunities that most of his peers would shun. This includes sexual activity that the child is receptive to or even chooses to initiate. In one case, a boy had sex with his scoutmaster on numerous occasions.

What I have been pointing out is that the child does not enter the world like a formless lump of clay to be haplessly shaped and molded by his parents. Rather, children have distinct temperaments. Any parent who has more than one youngster knows that, from infancy, each differs from the others in alertness, activity level, fearfulness, sociability, and in other ways. Parents react in accord with their children's temperaments. A mother or father responds differently to a cranky, colicky baby than to a cooing, contented baby.
