What would be more terrifying? A child being on the streets or in jail?
Being in an enclosed space behind bars would be terrifying, particularly with the knowledge that ’legitimate’ people have put you there and, ultimately, have a lot more control over the situation and you. Being on the streets in a war zone would be just as frightening because of the threat of imminent death of both you and your family members. No child should be in either of these scenarios.
It is not good because children also have their rights
I imagine that would depend on the child and the crimes. Some may pose an ongoing danger. But as a casual response, no.
In particular for kids, prisoning is an inefficient cruel system,punishment is not the solution to stop or reducing crimes.
streets are better because you are free to look for food, in jail you are limited and cant always eat
yes, Tusubira children have got their rights but not rights to crime
Lettice i like your no but all crimes and jail pose ongoing dangers.
I think harsh conditions prompt someone to commit crime. So there is nothing like right to do crime but putting the children in jail exposes them to harsh conditions which makes them develop bad feeling resulting to making crime when they leave Jail. So if you ask me to choose between Jail and street, I would say Street.
No Brian, streets have never been batter at all because one has to battle to look for food while jail is the worst and home is the best.
For prison to help rehabilitate children convicted of serious crimes, there must be both care as well as punishment. Punitive prison alone is not effective
I think prison is good a good rehabilitation for children
Can children really change into good people after being taken to jail and if so should we recommend more jails instead of rehabilitation centres or school?
I think rehabilitation calls for good behavioral change how does jail prove this to children
I think it is necessary to distinguish older children from younger children because in some cases older children are more conscious of their behaviours. However, in general, rehabilitation houses are the best way to deal with children who committed crimes. I think organisations play a central role in ruling these houses, because children feel loved, a feature that would lack in jails.
Deinfe a child… but absolutely not! Or at least not the sort of prisons we have.
streets and jails are both terrible scenarios for children. I think every child deserves the right to be safe, protected and loved.
We need miracles of grace for the kids,would have a lot of prayer for them, no punishment is a mistake too, rehabilitation more
We would like to think rehabilitating offenders would be the core of prisons.
