The recent crime rate is basically lower than the one in the past decades, but offenders’ age is getting younger, and some of those crimes have become sophisticated, because of information technology. The most important premise is that humans are social creatures. Because of their intelligence, people are exposed to a comparison from others, discrimination and bullies.
The primary carers for young people are their family members, but being older doesn’t mean they are wise enough. Adults also feel uncertainty and unfairness in society, therefore, they sometimes put too much pressure on vulnerable children. Additionally, because of the recent changes in nuclear family structure, children at home tend to have their own room, so they run away from the pressure, and access the internet, where they collect the information about tools for crimes, drug dealers, and adult sites, which make them violent.
Furthermore, polarisation also produces lack of opportunities in life for young adults. The number of people who own their mobile is quite high, but the rate of computer holders is relatively small, which means many people can tap and scroll their smartphone screen, but they are not skilful enough to type, make documents, do programming. In the current business environment, those who cannot use computers properly cannot find a skilled and well-paid job. The absence of education creates low-skilled workers, which are easily replaced by machines.
Importantly, younger generations are still immature mentally and physically, so it is very difficult for them to control their behaviour in the current competitive world. The initial orientation should be conducted in the household, and children would feel comfort and secure at home, so the content people tend not to commit crimes.
