You are of course very correct. While many delinquents show up from broken
homes, it does not follow that all, or even anywhere near all, broken homes
produce delinquents. It merely adversely affects the odds.
Kids from good families get into trouble also. Trouble arises from kids not
knowing better, from kids being bored, from kids being angry. These effects
are not exclusively the province of one-parent households. They do have
something to do with what kind of parent, though.
