This chapter explores the nature and risk and protective factors influencing children's development in South Africa and the implications for levels of violent behaviour. It examines the different contexts in which children learn how to behave, the factors that increase and reduce the likelihood of them becoming violent, and how the social environment in South Africa contributes to the levels of violence used by young people today.
