Adolescence is a period of rapid development when young people acquire new capacities and are faced with new challenges. It is not only a time of opportunity but also of vulnerability to risk behaviors which can have lifelong consequences. There are also daily peer pressures, outside influences and high expectations that they are constantly facing.
Children have much unsupervised time and they are at a highest risk of being a victim of a violent crime such as robbery or assault; alcohol and drug abuse; pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases; school failure and dropping out; crime, delinquency, and violence.
