Teenagers not only need role models, but they need social activities to keep them busy during holidays and after school periods. Those social activities also need to be educational, with mentors talking to and training youngsters to move closer to their potential.
Youngsters must be addressed right from heir primary school years.
If children are well educated and ambitious from a young age, they will instinctively avoid the lifestyle
Of street violence. Many teenagers lack good communication skills, but this is something quality development should achieve. The psychological element of street violence that informs the mentality of youths needs to be strategically addressed.
Priamary school children in the UK need to be taught about real respect of their elders and then respect for human life. Understanding what the parents of knife and gun crime go through is as important ad understanding why resorting to knife or gun crime is stupid .
A profile of the perpetrators of these awful crimes should be presented to priamary school children in order to discourage them from following the same path . If priamary school children can see that most perpetrators of knife and gun crime were school drop outs, and generally from single parent homes, they may be collectively be motivated to carve out a different path for their future throughout their priamary and secondary school years.
If children between the ages of 8 and 12 are exercised well in understanding the unintelligent mindset of those caught up in the web of knife and gun crime , they will look down on that sort of life style from an early age and aspire towards greate achievements .
