- Coercive state intervention, it children and family who don't embody traditional
norms. The intrusion into people’s lives, sets up the notion that there is inequality in
society.
- “delinquency” what does it mean to be delinquent- straying from cultural or societal
norms, outside the normalcy established by someone, delinquent does not mean
anything until meaning is put in it. Does delinquency come from social status?
“boys will be men, and girls will be mothers”
- gendered application of delinquency
Delinquency:
- Child is a relational term (talking about kinship terms), as a legal term what does the
category of child perform?
- The category of children is indeterminate and contingent
- “child” as a cite that is culturally bound, it has with it a set of rules and ideas of
proper roles and behaviours of children
- law begins to codifies who adults and who children are and what they need.
- Also notions of being an adult of being in a middle class, a part of a nuclear family, a
settler, and being financially independent.
- Norms of children: dependent, obedient, innocent, tamed, conforming to gender
norms, unemployed, cared for and not care giving, irrational, unformed, incapable of
judgment.
