need help answer this question

Most states allow for juveniles to be tried in adult court when juveniles commit serious crimes, such as sexual assault or murder. Children as young as 13-years-old have been sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Compare how “rational choice theory” and “self-control theory” predict the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of this policy with respect to crime rates and criminality. Will the possibility of longer sentences for juveniles discourage young people from committing serious crimes?
