    Juvenile crimes

    "They should be fined with a huge amount of fine".

    "Juvenile criminals are yelled at by their parents for making them loose their money whenever they are fined. Nobody wants to loose money like this. This kind of loss of money is a very sad thing". Please check.

    Re: Juvenile crimes

    "Loose" is not the proper word. It is the opposite of "tight."

    "They should be fined a huge amount." "Fined with a fine" is redundant.

    The two sentences (well, one fragment and one sentence) don't make sense as they are. Can you tell me how "Whenever they are fined" can be a complete sentence?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Juvenile crimes

    Study, learn, memorise the difference between "to lose" (verb) and "loose" adjective. It's a very important difference.

    Rather than that say they should be fined a large amount.

    Re: Juvenile crimes

    You can say:
    They should be fined heavily.
    They should be slapped with a heavy fine.

    The issue is not a matter of the parents losing money. The fact that they have children who commit crimes at an early age is even sadder. What would become of them when they grow up?

    You can say:
    Juvenile delinquents are scolded by their parents for making them fork out the money to pay fines for the crimes they commited.
