GENDER, PARENTAL ATTACHMENT, AND DELINQUENCY: REVISITING HIRSCHI'S SOCIAL BOND THEORY
VAN GUNDY-YODER, ALANA

2007, PhD, University of Cincinnati, Arts and Sciences : Sociology.
In 1969, Travis Hirschi proposed that the strength of four main social bonds would determine an individual’s propensity to become involved in delinquency. Subsequent research has re-affirmed that individuals with pro-social bonds are more likely to conform, while individuals with weak bonds are more likely to be delinquent. Despite this support, three main limitations exist: a deficiency of studies examining social bonds across the life course, a lack of differentiation by crime typology, and most importantly, a neglect of female delinquency. This study uses two waves of the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health to address these limitations. Results provide support for the importance of examining social bonds over the life course, controlling for crime typology, and including females in analyses of juvenile delinquency.
