This article talks about the effects of peer pressure. There are many negative sides of peer pressure. Nothing good can come out of it. The child feels like there is no way out of peer pressure once there in to it. Most child who want to "fit in" will basically do anything to have approval from whoever is dishing out the peer pressure.

Payton Morgan's insight:

Dorothy Otnow Lewis

This article has many differnt ideas to why children act out in a violent manner. One of the reasons could be abused as a child. Most children who are abused eventually have some type of mental problem when they get older.  They go through physchological "break downs" as I would say. The memory sticks with them so they feel they need to act out in a violent manner.

DeKalb police investigate death of 2-year-old girl

DeKalb police investigate death of 2-year-old girl | Should children who commit violent crimes be charged as adults? | Scoop.it
DeKalb County police continue to investigate the murder of a 2-year-old child. Sasha Lamaya Ray was found dead behind her home on Monday.
Payton Morgan's insight:

A 13 year old girl is going to be charged with murder of her 2 year old sister. I don't agree with the fact that a child of only 13 is going to be charged as an adult. To me the child needs help because she obviously has something mentally wrong with her.

The influence of violent media on children and adolescents: a public-health approach

Payton Morgan's insight:

Kevin D. Browne

This article is about the effects social media has on children and crimes. At a young age , not all children will be able to tell the difference between real life and fiction.  For an example: A child could play a video game and see people shooting each other and think thats okay.  Its a possiblity that they will try it on a person. There are many possibly bad things that could happen if a child is open to violent things they see in social media.

An early onset of delinquency prior to age 13 years increases the risk of later serious, violent,and chronic offending by a factor of 2–3.

David P. Farrington

This involves children with mental issues. It could help me for my reasoning and why children at young ages commit violent crimes against people. This article opens up the door to many unknown questions of why children could be violent.
