answer two of the following three discussion questions
Question 1: Some students may worry that strain theory provides excuses for offenders. For example, defense lawyers have been known to use the “abuse excuse” in courts, arguing that their clients should be held less responsible because of past child abuse. Do you believe it is the intent of strain theorists to provide excuses for offenders? Is it possible to view strain or abuse as a cause of delinquency, and at the same time hold young people accountable for their actions?
Question 2: What recommendations would a social learning theorist make for reducing delinquency (describe things that should and should not be done to reduce delinquency)?
Question 3: How might control theory explain forms of deviance like cheating on exams and excessive drinking?
