Children and crime / by Tang, Connie M.,1968-author.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Introduction -- Circumstances under which children become crime victims -- Child maltreatment overview -- Research on child maltreatment -- Children as eyewitnesses -- Child protective services -- Children as offenders overview -- Understanding children as crime perpetrators -- Gender, race, and juvenile delinquency -- Precursors of youth violence -- The juvenile justice system -- Child maltreatment and juvenile delinquency.Children and Crime offers a multidisciplinary and research-based approach to the study of child maltreatment and juvenile delinquency. Connie M. Tang first examines children as victims of maltreatment, exploring how developmental trauma and societal factors influence children's behavior and psyche. Topics covered include child neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and psychological abuse. Later chapters address how children come into conflict with the law and discuss gang membership and substance abuse. Engaging, real-life case studies illustrate the intersectionality of race, gender, and crime, as well as the role of Child Protective Services and juvenile courts. In particular, Tang examines how abuse and neglect can later play a role in a child's delinquency. Children and Crime provides an innovative and accessible text for psychology, social work, and criminal justice courses in child abuse, neglect, and delinquency.

Perfect little children / by Hannah, Sophie,1971-author.;
All Beth has to do is drive her son to his soccer game, watch him play, and then return home. Just because she knows her ex-best friend lives near the field, that doesn't mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her. Why would Beth do that and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasn't seen Flora for twelve years. She doesn't want to see her today -- or ever again. But she can't resist. She parks outside the open gates of Newnham House, watches from across the road as Flora arrives and calls to her children, Thomas and Emily, to get out of the car. Except... There's something terribly wrong. Flora looks the same, only older. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then. How is it possible that they are still the same two perfect little children Beth knew more than a decade ago?
