Dear Dr. Crime: My teenage daughter and her steady boy friend go to places with people I don’t know, mostly kids their own age. But I worry she may get hurt, and I trust that boyfriend as far as I could throw him. Should I be scared he may beat up on her and what can I do to prevent it without driving my daughter away? Troubled Dad Dear Troubled Dad: Join the club. There are lots of parents who are afraid for their kids. And there is reason. Close to 10% of the kids are assaulted by their boyfriend (or girlfriend!)1. If the boyfriend has been exposed to violence in his life, the numbers go up. Bottom line – we should all do what we can to keep it from happening. And the millions of bucks that the National Institute of Justice has used to study the issue have produced a not surprising suggestion for us. The network of young friends has been used to reduce the risk of assaults and can protect your daughter. If you read the NIJ report at pdffiles1/nij/248337.pdf you will find suggestions on how to build programs to made kid’s behavior good, not bad. Dear Dr. Crime: Violent crime has gotten so much worse in my lifetime that I think human nature has changed. Am I right? Angry and Afraid but Armed Dear Triple A: I experience the same feelings and a lot of people I talk with do also. Let’s look at the National Crime Victimization Survey done by the NIJ. They asked people about crimes that happened to them. They did the survey every year so we can see what the victimization rates were per 1,000 persons age 12 or older in 1993 and in 2013. For the violent crimes, the kind we see on TV every night, the rate in 1993 was 79.8 and in 2013 it was 23.2. That is a drop of such size we need to look closer. Please go to and let me know what you think of the study. The U.S. Census Bureau collects the data using a nationally representative sample of U.S. households. Dr. Crime is a pseudonym for a social scientist that holds a Ph.D. degree in sociology and in criminology. He has worked in all major parts of the criminal justice system. Drop him a note in care of this paper if you wish or email him at if you child is in “trouble”. Albemarle Tradewinds January 2015 11
