A Danger That Early Prevention Will Label Kids as Potential Delinquents

Is there a danger that early prevention will label or stigmatize kids as potential delinquents? Can you try to do good results in something that creates long-term harm?

To answer this question, use and cite at least seven sources, of which at least three must be journaled articles. It is not necessary to provide an abstract due to the short length of the answer. In addition to answering the question, you are required to do outside research on the issue to support your response. You can use the following resources:

  • “Early Childhood Interventions Benefits, Costs, and Savings” by Rand Corporation;
  • “Estimating the Costs and Benefits of Early Childhood Interventions: Nurse Home Visits and the Perry Preschool” by Greenwood et al.
