Step-by-step explanation

When control is balanced, individuals exercise an equal amount of control to the amount to which they are subjected. Therefore, the central causal process focuses on the cognitive balancing of control in an individual's life. Tittle originally argued that control imbalances are related to specific forms of deviance.

 

Life course theory (LCT) is an emerging interdisciplinary theory that seeks to understand the multiple factors that shape people's lives from birth to death, placing individual and family development in cultural and historical contexts.
Life course theory has five distinct principles: time and place;  life-span development;  timing;  agency; and linked lives. We used these principles to examine and explain high-risk pregnancy, its premature conclusion, and subsequent mothering of medically fragile preterm infants.
