The article focuses on the lack of parental influence and training as the cause of the rise in criminality. In most cases, parents are reportedly ignorant in rearing children and have no one to go to in this direction. It is stated that a course for parents in the all-essential subject of child guidance and direction is needed. Cases of criminals who point their misdirection back to their childhood days are also discussed.
