Why Do You Think Young People Vandalise Or Make A Nuisance?

Two of the reasons given are boredom and poor social background.
To most of us these seem like weak excuses on the surface.
Boredom seems a poor excuse for committing vandalism as many young people get bored at some time and they don't feel the need to go out and cause trouble for other people.
Much depends on the home life and the example set by parents and peer groups.
If parental attitudes are lapse and home life is what we might term dysfunctional then children easily follow a set example. However many children from so called 'good' homes still act in a way which caused distress to others.
Some youngsters are trying to prove themselves in front of their friends and others are trying to attract attention for all the wrong reasons.
Some children are very unhappy at home and they release their frustrations and unhappiness in a variety of unpleasant ways.
One way to reduce the levels of vandalism and nuisance is to give youngsters positive things to focus on. In deprived urban areas, lack of space, opportunities, poor education and a feeling of no-hope for the future all add to the problem.
There's really no excuse for some of the acts people commit but if the rest of society and the government realise the underlying causes of the problems then there is a hope that the situation can improve.
The bottom line is homelife and that needs improving for many young people who offend in this way.

I think young people do graffiti like tagging because it makes them fell known maybe , and I believe they al so do it not for the attention but for the intense felling  the might get from doing it because when ever any one does something they no they aren't  supposed to do you get a rush and many children around the ages of 12-18 Love that rush  it makes them feel like no ones controlling them as if they could not be told anything ...

And plus to yong People bad things are just fun and exiting.!

I don't think young people are inheritantly bad for a start, I believe that it is a lot to do with how they are brought up to deal with boredom and free time. There is no reason at all for a kid to be bored and resort to this type of thing, but since they often have parents who thought no different, this is continued.

There is also a great deal of peer pressure to be as cool or cooler or badder than your friends, this can lead to outrageous acts, as each person tries to out do the other. This leads to playing chicken with cars and trains (but thankfully not planes). It also leads to graffiti or tagging. Putting your mark on things, making yourself larger than your appear which is something that can be found in nature.

Young people need to learn to understand positive things to do. Otherwise the bad things are just more fun!

I honestly think people or youngsters vandalize areas because it brings out there inner self and helps them take there anger out on the walls,cars,buildings,etc. I also think that it helps them control there emotions. Instead of acting out violently, they act out artistically

I think they do it just because they are bored and want to have "fun" but get a little overboard on it.

Because when the whole world is set up so big businesses can cheat you out of your money and self-respect for nothing in return, you want to at least make somebody else lose something back.
