Abstract

This research aimed to gain an insight into specialists’ experiences of parenting styles and their beliefs surrounding the impact it has on whether a child turns to crime. This research used six specialists from a local youth offending service were previous research used parents or children as participants. The use of specialists allows for an alternative, less biased perspective to the research topic. A qualitative approach was employed as a means of collecting the data as it allowed participants to freely express their beliefs and experiences. Thematic analysis was used to analyse the data with Braun and Clarkes (2006) framework acting as an aid throughout. Three themes were generated: parental influence, relationships, and boundaries which were all believed to be linked with childhood offending. The data gained supports previous research which suggests more needs to be done in terms of preventative interventions.
