The meaning of Chav culture

Chav culture is a group mainly composed of teenagers whose main objective is to cause terror in the society. This group of people can also comprise of the employed and the unemployed. They cause terror in the society so repeatedly. In other words, they practice lawlessness among the living. Their behavior is anti-social; abuse of drugs, juvenile delinquency, drinking in the streets and rowdiness. People notice these individuals from their outlook. They put on garments with marks of Nike, Burberry, Reebok and Adidas. The girls wear tops which expose their breasts. By this, it means Chavs are both male and female. (Tungate 2008)

Causes of Chav culture

Anything that is popular now must have begun by a single step. Chavs likewise began with a culture of one person and expanded into a huge group of people. What caused this growth must have been peer influence. This is because most people want to identify themselves with others ending up joining them regardless of their practices. (Sheeran 2007)

The British government had also failed to combat the growth of this culture. Lack of employment opportunities to youngsters which was to be offered by the government has contributed a lot. Unemployment breeds idleness because an idle mind thinks of demonic deeds. (Tungate 2008)

Tremendous growth in the rate of drug abuse has led to more people join the culture than before. Once someone abuses drugs, people take the person to be a member of the culture. The person loses power of reasoning when abusing drugs hence makes a wrong decision of joining anti social movements. This is because the majority of drug addicts rejoice in wrong deeds. (Wiley and Vallaster 2010)

Parents also gave way to the current Chav cultural state in Britain. They did this by failing to guide their children             in a proper way. Some of them failed to take their children to schools where they could have acquired essential knowledge that they need in daily life. Some parents ignored the misconduct of their children in early stages of life, which led to the, children following their own deceitful traits finding themselves in this culture.  Some parents do not have enough time to teach their children manners when they are young. This is because the majority engage in search of wealth giving their children room to act on their own ways.(Taddeo and Dvorock 2010)

Adequate counseling services can reduce Chavs influence in Britain. Individuals enter into this culture after school since they lack a source of income. It becomes hard to drop out of the culture even when they get jobs. This is because they have come to like lifestyle of being a Chav culture member. Guidance and counseling can serve the purpose of guiding school leavers in making right decisions in life preventing them from testing the lifestyle of Chavs. Lack of this leads to youngsters to make wrong decisions.(Gilbert 2007)

Poverty and homelessness is among the chief causes of Chav culture development. Lack of basic needs drives an individual to seek other sources of income, however, inhuman to satisfy oneself. Children born out of wedlock in severe poverty backgrounds end up joining this culture hoping to find rest for their financial struggles. (Bailey and Redden 2011)

Forms of British Chav culture

Chavs culture members are in various forms. Their physical outlook identifies them. They wear cheap clothes branded with brand names such as Nike and Reebok. These brand names are pieces out of plastic materials. They have a desire of looking unique from the rest. Most of them are without underwear so that they can expose their genitals.

(Scott and Watt 2010) Skirts of some female Chavs are extremely short exposing their underwear if at all they wear them. They wear ornaments like necklaces, rings which resemble gold but it is not. Women wear earrings and bungles to attract males. They are terribly noisy with their track suits tacked into their socks. They are often in white shoes. They put off their tops the moment the sun rises. Most of them are ignorant and never educated although some are working class. All Chavs are drugs addicts and they also smoke weed. They cause crime by murdering, robbery, illegal drug dealings and all dehumanizing actions.(Jones 2011)

Proposed solutions to Chav culture

Chav practices are never ethical in the society. They should not be exposed to growing children. Children should be kept as innocent as possible. This can be done by bringing up a generation that condemns these practices. Chavs should not be given an opportunity to appear before televisions in any program. This can make the young school children understand to what extent the chav culture has caused trouble in the society. Growing children will understand that this culture is never something to appreciate or recognize.(Richardson and Gosnay 2010)

Chav education institutions should be developed by the British government and make them attend these institutions either by force or conviction. The government can do this by offering free education in these institutions. Their teachers must be well trained on how to handle such approved cases. Upon the rebellion of some Chavs to attend these schools, anti chav movements should be formed to ensure that these people refrain from their actions. Some Chavs who entered the culture because f poverty and homelessness will benefit from free government education and be respectable citizens. (Patemann and Vincent2010)

The remnant Chavs can be collected to rehabilitation centers where they get to retract from their deeds and run a virtuous life. The British government must be ready give support both financially and its attention to bring an end to this culture. (Sheeran 2007)
