Question Description

  • Discuss whether or not you believe that labeling a child as a juvenile delinquent is a self-fulfilling prophesy. Justify your response.

Tutor Answer

School: Cornell University

From a personal stand point, labeling in general has the same characteristics as profiling. From an academic perceptive, I understand the need for appropriately classifying and categorizing criminal behaviors, not the individual as many are led to believe. It is not a self fulfilling prophesy, it is actualization and reality that effectively treating delinquent behaviors starts with a method and avenue to do so, thus, labling is the result of distinushing difference in acts.
