Social crimes demand social awareness and administrative responses but unfortunately both social awareness and as well as administrative responses to unprecedented rise in social crimes are missing in Jammu & Kashmir. Though drug addiction is undoubtedly one of the biggest social crimes prevalent among youth attracting attention and intervetion of police in Jammu & Kashmir but other social crimes found very common among youth are left unattended by both the civil and police administration. Without waiting for a response from the government the society itself has to respond to the rise in social crimes prevalent among youth in Jammu & Kashmir but unfortunately the society itself like the police and civil administration does not turn it’s attention to even the occurrence and re-occurrence of such social crimes which ruin the lives of youth . Though social response to social crimes would by all standards of human understandabilities prove much stronger than the intervention of the civil and police administration, but unfortunately social awareness against the unprecedented rise in social crimes is altogether missing in Jammu & Kashmir. With the rise in the trends and tendencies of online education after the breakout of the covid-19 pandemic in March last year the seriousness in parental supervision over the children attending online classes should have increased but unfortunately reports about misuse of social media sites by children during the online classes speak volumes about the carelessness of the parents . Some social scientists of repute during research on supervision of parents over their children have found effect of family influences rising during the early years of a child’s life and reducing with the passage of time as the children move to higher stages of life.
Controlling children through a very close supervision remains the only option for the parents and people can’t set this trend by merely debating the issue but it needs a mass awareness to secure the future of children till the restoration of pre-covid normality within and outside Jammu & Kashmir.
Low levels of interaction between the parents and the children have been viewed as contributing risk factors. Similarly greater level of communication between the teacher and student has been found a greater contributing factor in the growth of children and this is the reason that off campus schooling through online education portals is now becoming a huge risk which in the presence of a fragile health scenario has become inevitable and as well as unavoidable. People talk about a strong relationship of children with both their parents and as well as teachers but in presence of poor parental supervision during online classes the strength of this relationship has been shaken badly and consequently bad trends and tendencies are rising among children day after day and month after month. Controlling children through a very close supervision remains the only option for the parents and people can’t set this trend by merely debating the issue but it needs a mass awareness to secure the future of children till the restoration of pre-covid normality within and outside Jammu & Kashmir.
