In Muku’s case parents who had sought to exercise their powers in attempting to control their unruly daughter found themselves frankly unable to achieve success

In Muku’s case parents who had sought to exercise their powers in attempting to control their unruly daughter found themselves frankly unable to achieve success, and consequently an incorrigible girl would often have to be sent to an organization giving institutional care upon her parents’ complaint. Muku who spent time on the streets at night or ran away from home failed to secure the necessary correctional treatment, and because hopelessly immoral, disappeared entirely from view. There is no well- marked mental peculiarity or conflict, and the girl’s delinquency is thus viewed from the angle of parental control. It goes without saying that in many instances a change of method on the part of the mother might have resulted in a corresponding change in her daughter’s behavior, but one can only base one’s findings upon existing conditions. Miss Das has been considered as those in which normal parents with a reasonable amount of effort have been unable to prevent the delinquency of daughters who are not mentally deficient.
