Emotions are also bound to rush. Families become torn between the decision. But after deciding, they also help themselves from the constant pity and feeling sadness from seeing the patient. Emotions influence mental health. “Psychological factors that cause people to think of euthanasia include depression” (BBC- ethics-euthanasia: Ethics…, 2014).
From clinical experience, other children in the family are affected heavily with having to give up time with their family because of the focus on the needs of the ill child. This does lead to change in life roles and can cause permanent changes to the family (Falvo,
“In recent years, there has been increasing interests in the influence of individualistic and collectivistic cultural orientations on attitudes toward mental illness. Individualism and collectivism are cultural linked attitudes and beliefs”(Hampton 26).Since the beginning, people with mental diseases have always been treated poorly. For instance they were deemed as witches and killed Now people are treated much better. Different cultures treat mental illnesses differently, and their country’s suicide rate reflects accordingly. In America, even though there are programs to help people with mental illnesses, there are still people that feel the stigma and commit suicide because of it.
Vaccinations do not cause harm and are not linked to autism, parents not vaccinating children is the true cause of harm. Non-vaccination leads to the spread of diseases causing death and disablement in its wake. We must protect the weak in our community by immunizing those whose immune system is able to be vaccinated. By not vaccinating we are being negligent and putting not only our child in harm’s way but other individuals who have not been immunized as well. To protect our community we must mandate all children regardless of their parent’s beliefs or religion be vaccinated.
Child vaccinations ensure that children have a well-armed immune system to fight off deadly diseases. Vaccinations contain antigens that trigger the immune system to make antibodies for that specific disease; this allows the body to think it has been infected, without causing the person any symptoms (Reddy 1). Throughout the United States, parents have been debating whether to delay, refuse, or accept the vaccinations that are given to their children. Why would you not want to give your child the best possible chance to fight off a deadly disease? Vaccinating children does not only affect the child, but also the community.
Many may think that this is destroying God’s creation. Mr. David Cameron responded that “We’re not playing with God here, we are just making sure that two parents who want to have a healthy baby can have one.” From BBC, Lily Foundation website, there were arguments about mitochondria donation as the proponents mentioned that “a woman with mitochondria diseases will be able to have healthy offspring” and “scientific reviews have ruled that it is not ‘unsafe’.” However, the opponents stated that “it is stepping towards the slippery slope of genetic modification and creation of designer babies.” Also, “small amount of DNA will be passed on to future generations.”
Imagine being adopted from a foreign country, you don’t know anything about your family’s genetic history or your ancestry. What can you do to find out these types of things? You could take a genetic test, genetic testing can be used to help prevent diseases, it’s the analysis and collection of someone's DNA. It helps identify what diseases someone is predisposed to and can recommend steps to help them change their lifestyle. A wide variety of genetic tests are now available to the public, some give the person’s ancestry, others can give deeper insights to their genetic code.
In this paper, I will argue and show parents how spanking and physically disciplining our children can have negative and detrimental consequences because it causes psychological damage, a lack of trust between child and parent, and when it is not done in the right mind set it can lead to more serious matters such as child abuse. “In 2012, a national survey showed more than half of women and three-quarters of men in the United States believe a child sometimes needs a "good hard spanking." ” Some may argue that spanking helps the child realize that their behavior is wrong and needs to be fixed, when parents discipline physically it might be a quick fix to stop the behavior, but as time goes on it does not only harm them physically but mentally and socially. While I agree that when a child’s behavior is wrong, we need to help them fix it, but I disagree that it should be done by physical punishment. Studies show that when kids are spanked or physically punished they tend to act out in the same way and choose to be aggressive like their parents.
Abandoned children constantly seek for approval and achievements, setting themselves up for failure and leading to trust issues. Babies also might develop the “abandonment syndrome” which is a psychological behavioural condition. This is a serious issue as it may result in the children thinking that they are not wanted or loved thus leading to suicide or crime.
Overlooked Mental Abuse Mental abuse is well overlooked versus physical abuse, and all abuse generates a negative outlook on one’s life. Mental abuse is a type of cruelty that affects one’s mind that leads to feeling worthless and powerless. It can also be identified as emotional abuse or psychological abuse. Once a person is mentally abused, it influences his or her everyday life making it where making decisions are difficult leading to death.
In most situations, prenatal testing will assure the parents that their baby is developing normally. Although if a disease is detected while a woman is still pregnant, this allows for procedures to be prepared ahead of time. Also it allows for the parents of the baby to prepare themselves emotionally and to properly arrange the home environment to accommodate for a child with special needs. Prenatal genetic screening can not determine for sure if a condition will be present but can show if the fetus is at a high or low risk.
Drug abuse often is rampant among the lower socio-economic classes. The bill will directly affect families whose benefits are decreased, specifically, the children of the parents who test positive for drugs. This policy seeks to deny aid to the recipients who are using drugs, but benefits will continue for minor children. However, they will continue to suffer because they are dependent on their parents for sustenance.
For one, the social development of a person is highly impacted by autism in a negative way. People with autism have to endure social impediments and so frequently fail to have the normal social intuitions about all the other people they come across. This lack of proper social development is apparent already from early childhood onwards. For example, it starts with autism experiencing infants already showing less attention to stimulus in their environment, reacting less often to their own name than their peers and smiling less frequently than their normal peers, too.
Mothers who are suffering from postnatal depression commonly are fatigue because of the continual crying and disturbed sleep. Furthermore, mothers are isolation from the social life due to self-blame feeling, disorganized behaviors, and the confuse thinking. Mothers will have a difficulty in bonding with their babies and at some cases mothers can have thoughts about harming their babies. According to World Psychiatry Association analyze in a study of mothers who killed their children and they found not guilty,” in two U.S. states found that the perpetrators were often depressed and frequently experienced auditory hallucinations, some of a command type. Over one third of the homicides occurred during pregnancy or the postpartum year.
The reason for this new law is the recent measles outbreak that occurred in disneyland. Specialists argue that if vaccines were required for everyone to have, the measles outbreak wouldn 't have spread so far. “The overwhelming number of people who have gotten infected, particularly among the children, are children that have not been vaccinated, because parents, for reasons that are really not based on any scientific data, just don’t want their children to be vaccinated,”
