This is because of the environment we had at home. My father is a restaurant manager and my mother is a high school teacher aid. I went to a big school, with a lot of children. With that in mind, we had a strong sense social structure at home, as both of my parents are leaders in their own occupations as my dad is a manager and my mother is a teaching aid with children abiding her rules.
Of course, my peers also provided me insight of what is right and wrong, together with my parents. The society that I grew up in is normal, but of course stringent in a way because social order was upheld. This includes my school and my neighborhood, which, I might add, prevented untoward behavior as it had rules that should be respected. The neighborhood I grew up in is very nice and ordered that it would be very difficult if you were a delinquent.
The general idea behind Social Learning Theories is that children are not born with the interest or tendency to be bad, or to do bad things and that delinquency is a result of learning the values, norms and behaviors associated with it and if the child does not have opportunities to learn the values associated with delinquency, people would not become delinquent.
I would like to use Differential Association Theory for this. The theory is developed by Edwin Sutherland. The theory states that criminal behavior is learned through social interaction, namely by exposing a person to persons with criminal behavior, but this interactions can only occur in intimate personal relations. A person who is exposed to this kind of setup is going to learn the techniques of committing the crime and the motivations behind the crime itself, and one gets to be delinquent because of certain reasons that make breaking the law more favorable. Of course, these are varied according to duration, frequency, intensity and priority of learning a certain delinquent act. This theory
