I appreciate you examining Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), as it is certainly a troubling condition suffered by so many children victimized by abuse and neglect. Attachment Disorder usually begins in infancy. Erikson’s Psychosocial Stage of “Trust vs. Mistrust stage” is the stage that provides the child with a sense of security from the caregiver and the development of attachment. In this stage, the nature of our attachments affects how we relate to others throughout our lives. The majority of the research concerning RAD has found that most of the children were victims of abused or neglected by their primary caregiver.
This is supported by research conducted by Kyu and Atsuko. Their research indicates that the best prediction of children becoming either perpetrators or victims of domestic violence later in life is dependent on whether or not they grew up in a home where there was domestic violence. (2005). Lastly, there are drastic social effects that accompany domestic violence. Children often isolate themselves from family and friends, have a difficulty in trusting others, extreme anger management issues and have poor relationships.
Temporary homes can be really destructive for a child. Children are mostly placed in temporary homes when they are waiting to be adopted. The child then starts really bonding with the family, just to be ripped out and placed into a new temporary family. This process can happen several times, until the child is adopted. I have personal experience with this, as my sister is adopted.

The article reviewed the issues that occur in a child’s life in regard to their education when their parents are incarcerated. Vacca points out that the children of parents that are incarcerated often “experience emotional withdrawal, failure in school, delinquency, and the risk of intergenerational incarceration” (49). He also suggests that many people in our society do not realize that these children “…often they lack any positive intervention from homes and community agencies” which allows them to fall through the cracks (Vacca
What could you, as an administrator (if anything) do to mitigate the response? Speaking from a parental lens I would be concerned if I learned that my child’s teacher was convicted of a DUI on several occasions. I would be concerned of the safety and wellness of my student’s education and would demonstrate apprehensiveness towards field trips. As a parent you do what ever is necessary to protect your child. One of the scariest moments as a parent was when I dropped my child off to school on her first day of kindergarten.

Not only are one in five students clinically depressed, but according to Robert Leahy, director of American Institute of Cognitive Therapy, “the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950’s.” Furthermore, our educational system compels its high school students to develop “life-skills, personal responsibility, and uniqueness.” This method of teaching and learning ultimately causes stress and eventually the exact opposite effects of what the system wants to come about. As much as the educational board wants students to enjoy school and pursue a lifelong career, Forty-five percent of high school teenagers admit they suffer from school pressures which can lead to missing school as well as academic deterioration. Today’s, social impacts among high school teenagers badly affect social development between student-teacher interactions and peer interactions. Student-teacher
The effects of neglectful parents are basically all negative. A child coming from neglectful parenting “...are more likely to become engaged in delinquent behavior, as well as in early experimentation with drugs, alcohol, and sex” (Stein and Breckenridge). The physical and mental development of a child can be affected by a distant parent. A child will hold onto this throughout their childhood and into their adulthood, affecting themselves, others around them, and possibly significant people in their lives like spouses or children they
Students are more to be tardy and to be absent and they tend to sleep during classes yet it could also affect the performance of the students in school. Early school start times are one of the identified by The National Institutes of Health and the American Lung Association of New England as a factor of sleep deficiency. According to Croft (1994), she believes that early school start times have a “deleterious impact” and impose an “unrealistic burden” on students. Researchers commented that sleep deprivation among students is epidemic (Developmental Neuroscience, 2009). Previous research tends to find that students in early starting schools are more likely to be tardy and to be absent.
I think that exposure to intimate partner violence can be a form of abuse. This exposure can be mentally and emotionally scarring to children of all ages. Obviously some events are more tragic than others, but almost all children could suffer from traumatic events related to IPV. As the video “The Children Next Door” mentioned, 5 million children experience childhood domestic violence every year. The children in this from suffered from mood swings, and anxiety that their dad might come back for their mom.
Abstract In today’s world, divorce may be seen throughout different cultures and ethnicities. Attitudes and behaviors may change in children when they experience parental divorce. It is shown that children living in single-parent families exhibit a low level of education (Raley, Sweeney, & Wondra, 2015). Typically, children live with the mother after parental divorce. Children who live through parental divorce are left susceptible to acting out and facing academic issues.
