Bradford Brown and Jeremy P is an article that provides multiple studies, including their own, on how parenting styles impact who an adolescent associates with and how they communicate with their parents about their peers. Many parents feel that they have a right to know what goes on during their child’s life. Bradford and Brown state that these categories include: social activities with peers, features of specific relationships, and characteristics of their peers.

Parental monitoring has also shown that there have been positive changes in drug use and risky behaviors.

In fact, Ryan et al observed in about 18 months of the initial arrest, nearly 61 percent experience a subsequent arrest. A majority, at least 67 percent of the subsequent offenses transpired before the youth turned 18 years of age.

In an article published by the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, it was found that adolescences that understood their parent’s condition were likely to grow in their personal awareness of emotions, build a network of supportive connections, and use their parent’s circumstance as a motivation for personal development (Parys, H. V., Bonnewyn, A., Hooghe, A., Mol, J. D., & Rober, P., 2014). In another research study titled, “Oversized Loads: Child Parentification in Low-Income Families and Underlying Parent–Child Dynamics”, it was stated that children who are parentified take more initiative in certain tasks and are overall more caring (Chee, L. P., Goh, E., & Kuczynski, L., 2014). However, it can become overwhelming for the child and it is likely that he or she feels incapable of pursuing their own dreams because they are too busy providing for their family or always need to take care of
Puberty is a very peculiar age because a lot happens to the students and they become more aware of who they are and many changes affect them. At this age, students have already formed groups and they identify with their friends (Collins, 1984). Their personalities develop and they begin to discover things about themselves. During this stage of development,
Due to the fact that poor childhood environments lead to increased risk of disease and death in adults, the study “Childhood abuse, parental warmth, and adult multisystem biological risk in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults study” studied how increased stress in childhood, caused by many factors, can affect the health of adults across the bodies many regulatory systems (Carroll et al., 2013). The study that was conducted compared reports of childhood abuse to a comprehensive 18-biomarker measure of multisystem risk; to determine childhood stress levels they used the Risky Families Questionnaire (Carroll et al., 2013). The study also compared whether the presence of a loving parental figure or not influenced risky health in adulthood (Carroll et al., 2013).
Guatemalans began fleeing to the United States during the three and one-half-decade long Civil War (1960-1996), and today, child migration fueled by a desire to escape from violence is still very prevalent. Since 2012, child migration has been increasing, including a ninety percent increase between 2013 and 2014. Twenty-four percent of migrants are from Guatemala , a country that has one of the world’s top murder rates. Migration is very dangerous; many are injured, and gang-violence is common along the journey. In areas such as the Tierra Blanca, gangs kidnap people, demand money, and threaten death, and then pose as children’s relatives.

Media Violence & its Impact on Children’s, Society or Even at Global Level.

Its consequence is not limited to physical health it can effect mental health & social behaviors as well.
Another finding of the study, was that positive parenting would moderate the association of intimate partner violence with child trauma (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016). Overall, the research demonstrates that children being exposed to intimate partner violence between their parents may increase the risk of them experiencing trauma symptoms in future. Also, they are more susceptible to practicing negative parenting rather than positive parenting with their own children. Positive parenting may be able to moderate the association of inmate partner violence, but it does not necessarily work when inmate partner
