Depressed, timid and trustful are the three highest emotional functions experienced by the respondents which are equal to sadness, fear and acceptance in subjective language. 3. Emotional functions motivated the respondents to commit a crime. RECOMMENDATIONS 1.

The Family of Children in Conflict with the Law must give their full support and attention, for the betterment of their children who got involved in an illegal act. They should not give up; instead they should be the source of hope for their children. 3. The Institution must promote a program that can help the children in conflict with the law to control their emotions by giving coping techniques and strategies. 4. The House-parents and social workers should also continue providing support, strength, attention and hope to the children in conflict with the law by giving emotional support. 5.
