comment Is “How and why child is become criminal” proper English?
Agreed, the original sentence is not correct. It's a matter of subject/verb agreement. "Become" is for plural subjects. Your version is correct.

comment “Anxious to” versus “eager to”
I am also a native American English speaker (grew up in the north, now in the south) and I say "anxious to" although it has always struck me as the wrong phrase to use.

comment How should this sentence be punctuated?
@Steve: I have seen semicolons used to separate lists when commas may be confusing (as in this example or "Chicago, IL; Tulsa, OK; Cleveland, OH"). I do agree that the colons break the flow of the sentence.

comment “Fixing to” at the beginning of a sentence
I'm from the North (Chicago) but now live in the South (Oklahoma). I have heard plenty of people start sentences with "Fixin' to" when it was not a response to a question.
