MetadataShow full item record
Over the last decade, the crime rate among young people has been rising, which may be caused by the growing dysfunctionality of the family. The aim of this work is to show the range of juvenile crime in recent years and the way in which the dysfunctionality of the family influences this phenomenon. To analyze the phenomenon of juvenile crime, the statistics of the Regional Police Headquarters in Opole in years 1999–2012 have been used. The analysis of the statistics has shown that over these years, the crime rate among young people has been rising and in 2012 it reaches 8.4% of all crimes. It is becoming apparent that the dysfunctionality of modern family influences the development of crime among young people. Modern dysfunctionality is not understood merely as orphanhood or half-orphanhood but more as a deep crisis of educational family values. What has been disturbed is the structure of families without considering it just at the level of parents’ physical presence at home but at the level of bonds, goals, norms which family should bring while shaping a young person, citizen and which it currently develops.
