ABSTRACT
Through analyses on three typical cases of adolescent violence with different family backgrounds and social environments, the paper aims to probe into the influence of violent ideas on violent behaviors. The three cases have three characteristics in common: First, adolescents in the cases had positive attitudes toward violence. Their violent ideas were not only nurtured by the environments in which they grew up, but also strengthened by the instability of their personalities in adolescent. Second, the spread of violent culture in society was the non-ignorable social-psychological background and it accelerated the development of violent ideas. Third, adolescents' violence showed new characteristics such as an increase of frequency and cruelty. Violence destroys adolescences themselves and endangers the safety of society. It should be paid more attention by families, schools, society, and so on.
