2015 Family or caregiver instability, parental attachment, and the relationship to juvenile sex offending.
This study investigates how parental attachment and carer instability affect the incidence of adolescent sex offences. The relatively low correlation between disrupted parental attachment and juvenile sex offence in this study may be due to the detained adolescents’ inclination to idealize their parents or carers. The results of this study’s investigation into the consequences of parent and carer instability are in line with previous studies that suggest weak parental boundaries and family upheaval may contribute to juvenile sexual behavior and crime (Dallaire & Wilson,2010; Merrick, Litrownik, Everson, & Cox,2008). Also, the lack of supervision in a homeless setting, observing hitting, slapping, or punching in the home may serve to reinforce negative behavior in the juvenile’s mind and, in turn, cause them to display such behavior when involved in an intimate relationship.

2007 Marshall: The role of attachments intimacy and loneliness in the etiology and maintenance of sexual offending
The vulnerability of the offender is a crucial component of our general theory of sex offending. This susceptibility develops mostly from poor quality attachment relationships between the parent and the child who may commit sex crimes. Poor attachments cause low self-esteem, poor social skills, and a lack of empathy for others, which make the transition to peer relationships throughout puberty more challenging and present people as objects of sexual gratification. In order to show a connection between low-quality attachments, loneliness, closeness, and the inclination to offend, this paper tries to combine all of these processes.

Cognitive distortions and blame attribution among pedophiles
It examined many perspectives on the cognitive illusions used by child predators, such as the idea that having sex with an adult is a good method to teach a youngster about sex even if the child doesn’t physically refuse the adult’s advances. In summary, it is found that pedophiles are more likely to blame their sex crime on the victim and broader society factors and fail to take responsibility for their acts the more they attempt to defend the idea of child molestation.
