When children commit violent crimes, should they be tried as adults?

The news headlines provide a constant supply of social scenarios that present us with opportunities to contemplate socioemotional development. How are the emotional and social characteristics of a child affected by trauma, adversity, or challenge? Conversely, what role does a child’s socioemotional development play in shaping society’s response to issues such as teen pregnancy and bullying?

To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources.

By Day 3, post a comprehensive response to one of the following:

 

  • What are the threats to the emotional development of a child born to a teen parent versus an older parent?
  • When children commit violent crimes, should they be tried as adults?
  • What makes early childhood and young adulthood a vulnerable time for humans to be affected by bullying?

Include specific examples to help support your position. Be sure to use supporting documentation and cite your sources in correct APA format.
