ABSTRACT
Objective: The aims of this study were to determine the differences among the limits of the ability to manage behaviour and perception of the legal meaning and the consequences of the act with a scenario-based study over the students ages between 10-18 in the primary and secondary schools; and to investigate its interactions with environmental factors. Material and Method: The results of the questionnaires, which were filled out by 969 students were evaluated in this study. The descriptive characteristics of the students who attended this research were defined. For each scenario, the rates of "expected responses" were determined for each question. Results: From 1.8% to 29.2% of the students did not have the perception of what is "true or false" or the perception of what is "crime or not crime". From 1.9% to 66.1% of the students did not have foresight about the legal meaning and the consequences of the act. The environmental factors did not seem to affect them. Conclusion: The ability to manage behaviour and perception of the legal meaning and the consequences of the act for attributed crimes to every under-18-year-old child should be evaluated in special units and special juvenile courts.
