Under the umbrella means?

I dont know the meaning of phrase “under the umbrella” in this sentences . Pls help me !!
" Included under the umbrella of juvenile delinquency are status offences, so called because they are closely connected with the age status of an offender; a particular action or behaviour is considered a violation of the law only if it is committed by a juvenile "


Hello @Luks! In this instance, “under the umbrella” means that these status offences are part of juvenile delinquency. You can think of it by imagining juvenile delinquency as a tree, and status offences are just one branch. Or - to stay true to the phrase - juvenile delinquency is an umbrella, which has many things under it (or covered by it), and status offences are just one of these things.

Please let me know if that makes sense. We can find other ways to describe this as well, if needed!


I got it ! Thank you :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:
