The Group of Friends as Factor of Socialization and Juvenile Delinquency

Neaga Susanu


The theme of the paper is “The group of friends as factor of socialization and juveniledelinquency”. I have chosen this theme due to the proportion of this phenomenon in our country. Thepurpose of the paper is to highlight the causes and the factors for juvenile delinquency because Ibelieve that the “failure” in the juvenile delinquency issue is because we concentrate too much on theconsequences and too little on the causes and roots of this phenomenon. I have described the group asbeing the development and formation environment for the youth’s personality but also as being theorigin of the young “delinquents, especially those groups called “street groups” or “gangs”. Thegroup, right after the family, has a positive effect over the individual and his personality. I haveconcluded, by mentioning some “failure” in elementary socialization, other mechanisms ofcontinuous socialization.
