Unless you are prepared to put your money where your mouth is, stop criticising and just let them do the jobs that you are not willing to do.
I have raised my children to be happy individuals who don't go bullying/mugging other kids. I have taken a stand against local juvenile thugs and have been threatened with beatings or worse because of it. I could go on. I do more than my bit. Delinquency should be nipped in the bud so that erstwhile naughty kids don't grow into serious criminals because they are never challenged by any authority, parental or official. Those kids are the responsibility of their parents first, the authorities after. Not me. As they don't take that responsibility, it becomes mine, whether I like it or not.
