The article focuses on juvenile delinquency in the United States. Three factors considered are the cause of delinquency, the assistance being given to the delinquent boy or girl and the help given to the delinquent boy or girl. Juvenile delinquency is a problem for the public schools to solve. A child become delinquent when the sum of his or her behavior indicates an irregularity in his conduct out of proportion to his health impulses. Delinquency seldom develops spontaneously. The development is gradual and presents a series of early symptoms easily recognized.
