Abstract

Many people, and even professionals in the field, tend to forget that most children in our part of the world grow up without any real problems, in good living conditions and with capable and loving parents. However, the media present us with quite another image of youth: they claim that many young people commit delinquent acts and that juvenile delinquency is for ever rising, constituting a severe threat to ordinary norm conforming citizens.
