For many years at school and in the social rehabilitation center for minors, I had to work with “difficult” teenagers who regularly skipped or did not attend school classes regularly. And at that time they walked, used drugs, stole, robbed, committed robbery.

Working with them, I was convinced that a large or significant part of the problem lies in the unconscious behavior of the guys.
