Morality prevents crime

For parents and those in a position to mould young minds. Cambridge’s decade long research reveals that children receiving firm guidance as to morals from parents and in a wholesome environment will grow up putting more stock in good morals and the law. This indicates that children would become much less likely to commit crimes. The results paint a stark contrast as to how many see the majority of our youth as delinquents and encouragingly how most are actually behaving. It also lends credibility to the opinion that we are the shapers of young minds and should do a better job at doing so.
