Document Summary

Focus: socialization and supervision: using natural science methods, objective observations. Travis hirschi: social bond theory: why aren"t you a criminal, answer: a stake in conformity, reputation to uphold, consequences for non-conforming behaviour. If you care what people think you will conform: deviance occurs when social bonds become weak or broken. Fundamental bias in this theory towards the ideal family: main socializing agent is the family, the mother would be blamed, any family that doesn"t meet this expectations isn"t the ideal family and aren"t considered. Is measured through the nature of the bond that that child has with their parents: extreme lack of attachment is indicative of a psychopathic personality, someone who neither cares how others feel nor welcomes their attention (supervision) "we are moral beings to the extent that we are social beings: commitment. It does not matter what occupation you have, it does not affect if you"re a law abiding citizen or not.
