Such crimes are arm robbery, kidnapping, fraud and intake of hash substance or alcohol, that can hinder a bright future. And when a youth who experience such hardship during childhood, develop low self-esteem and feeling of inferiority complex and mental health issues like post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD).
    UNSTABLE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM: In any life of a youth who was not given proper and adequate educational support during their childhood, lacks both moral and intelligent knowledges.
