Juvenile Justice and Delinquents

It is a common practice for parents and even the police and school officials to not report status offenses such as underage drinking and truancy from school, and many minor offenses such as stealing small amounts of money, fighting, and shoplifting, on the grounds that this behavior is just part of the growing-up process.

In your opinion, who benefits and who does not benefit by not reporting the minor offenses or status offenses juveniles commit? Why?

How are the juveniles who commit status offenses and/or minor offences, of the type described above, different from juvenile delinquents?
