Taking the step to actually file a report can be difficult for many reasons: • Caregivers may be shocked, angered or embarrassed by what they hear or see. • Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards.
The disadvantages of using this REBT approach is that a serious problem can arise when the child gets upset with the behavior of important adult figures in their life (as they most often do), and this gets misconstrued by the therapist (Diguiseppe & Bernard, 2006). It could lead to more harm than good for the child if the therapist decides to go the disputational route, ignoring the fact that the data supports the child’s perspective and the elegant solution is a better alternative to treatment (Diguiseppe & Bernard, 2006). Many therapists tend to do this because they believe that a child’s realization of their parents being uncaring, unfair, or disturbed may cause more emotional distress than they can handle (Diguiseppe & Bernard, 2006). Let’s suppose a child is confronted with such an unfortunate reality of an unloving parent. The therapist decides to pursue an empirical strategy and tries to relabel the parent’s behavior as caring, and convince the child that the parent really does care.
During high-conflict divorces, the parties may not have the ability to work with each other, even for the good of the children. It is also seen in families where domestic violence has occurred, it may be necessary to seek the assistance of a child custody evaluator in the issue of custody arrangements. In these and other situations, the use of psychological testing assist the evaluator to attempt to determine and review the psychological make-up of the parties, their possible personality deficits, and their potential for distortion or outright lying. Psychological testing may also allow the evaluator to learn more about the parties' personality traits, how these traits can affect their parenting styles, as well as how they may impact upon interactions between the parents. This information becomes useful when the evaluator is called upon to make recommendations to the court with regard to custody, visitation, and assist in developing a general parenting plan for the
It is scary opening up to a person because one does not know if they are going to protect the secrets and fears that are shared or if a person is going to exploit them and find any and every possible way to hurt them. No one wants to take that chance, so they tend to be as distant as possible which leads to the lack of relationships. De Botton shows us how much our childhood affects us. If a child was in a bad household and had terrible friendships and relationships with their parents will cause them to seek the same things out in future partners. It’s important for a child to understand how they are supposed to be treated at a young age because once they see a good definition of love, it will encourage to find the same kind of love later in life.What both authors show in the end is that truly complicated love and happiness is and that no one will ever be able to define
From the start the key person must build a secure relationship with the children’s parents so that they feel able to pass on any key information. This is not a one-off; there should be a frequent flow of contact between the key person and the child’s parents. This will consequently create a smooth transition for the child. Lastly, during transitions practitioners may also decide to work in partnership with other professionals. For example, practitioners may invite reception class teachers from the local primary school so that the pre-school children can meet them and are familiar with them when they start in September.

Kindness can mean different things to different people. There was a survey done to see how parents defined the word kindness.
Confidentiality in research refers to the ability of the researchers to protect the identities and information provided by participants involved in the study. Research conducted on racial disparities has potential implications for participants to be subjected to unintentional biases that could impact policy and decisions. Longitudinal research also poses a concern for reliability. Research by Morgan (2013) used a discrete-time hazard model to observe if kindergarten students were experiencing disparities in diagnosis and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) through eighth
One of the noteworthy factors that should be focused upon in order to gain insight into why people commit injustice to others or engage in pro social behaviour is “Morality”. Morality is internalised by children at a very early age and one of the factors that facilitate the internalization of moral standards is the socialization techniques utilised by their parents. Socialization is the process through which individuals acquire skills needed to function within their social group through the assistance of others, most notably their parents (Grusec, 2002). Through socialization, the individual internalizes societal norms signs and values.One of the key focus areas of socialization practices employed by parents are the internalization of morality
If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run. Children should most likely not be paid for grades because so many negative outcomes are to follow with it and it is just seen as a good deal in the short
about themselves. There are a lot of things that might go wrong due to the impact of emotions that the separation of parents has brought unto them. Due to the emotional effect caused by the divorce and having single parent, children would not be open to others and they would have difficulties in making friends because they think that they will be bullied because of not having a mother or a father. They would change. They would not be what they used to be.
