Parents should always be able to prepare their teens for the worst no matter how uncomfortable the situation might be. While parents are more worried of keeping their health private, I think teens would like to have those rights too when it comes to something personal like deciding about their sexual life. Medical health Centers should allow young teens to make their own decision when it comes to their personal sexual life and non-threating issues. Allowing young teens to decide for themselves not only creates them to be responsible for their actions but also to boost of confidence when talking to a doctor. Some teens don’t always tell the doctor everything because they know the moment they tell something their parents will know.
A counselor will incorporate informed consent that the counselor will explain to the parents and adolescents. Informed consent will include the parents allowing adolescents the opportunity to be included in explaining medications to adolescents that can understand between ages 12-18. For example, Junior mother fear that her son will cause her harm. Inform consent relates to issues that include harm to others, child protection, lawbreaking, and communicating for the good of the adolescents that is called catch-all (Foreman, 2006). In addition, the second issue is confidentiality.
Actually, foster parents do have a choice on what kind of child is placed in their home (thechildrenarewaiting.org). Some people who want to be foster parents also believe that they must provide medical insurance fo the children. Foster parents actually do not have to pay for any treatment besides household remedies (thechildrenarewaiting.org). A similar way to help is to be a respite worker. “Respite care workers provide parents and other caregivers with short-term child care services that offer temporary relief, improve family stability, and reduce the risk of abuse or neglect” (www.adoptuskids.org).
Though many vaccines have triggered skepticism and even complete avoidance, most notably the Vaccine-Autism debate, the resistance to the HPV vaccine goes beyond that of other vaccines**. When questioned about their mistrust, parents have cited the young age at which children are vaccinated and moral concerns***. However, it is very important that the vaccine is administered to children who have not be exposed to the virus for it to be most effective and provide the greatest protection against HPV**. The moral concerns of getting the vaccine is stems from the thought pre-marital sex is immoral and parents would like for their children to wait for marriage*. Even so, some 46.8% of American high schoolers have reported having sex, with 5.6% reportedly having intercourse before the age of 13**.
In any situation, we first need to assess it, analyze it and then proceed with action. We all have different beliefs and points of view when it comes to ethics and values. Therefore, when you are a healthcare provider you can’t act upon what you believe in, but rather you have to follow the policies and laws that are set based on the facility that you are working at. In this situation the healthcare provider have to assess the situation before jumping to conclusion. The healthcare provider should ask the mother if she asked a healthcare provider if the procedure is safe for a child, and if she has done any research prior to performing the procedure on her child.
"The Revolution Will Not Be Supervised" by Hannah Rosin is an article written for The Atlantic and is about parenting. The article is in the subject of how overprotective parenting has changed our kids over the past few decades. In my opinion, parenting should not be as overprotective as it is now, and kids are suffering from this. This article is very well written and there are definitely parts I both agree and disagree on. The statement, "The idea was that kids should face what, to them, seem like "really dangerous risks" and conquer them alone.
Unit 8 Assignment: Preventing Teen Pregnancy Kendal Metts Kaplan University Have you talked to your children about safe sex? Do they know all the risks and consequences of being sexually active at such a young age? Not all teens are talked to when it comes to having sex and the consequences of having sex. They don’t know how to use birth control or condoms properly or they don’t have them.

Open Adoptions Requiring open adoption records benefits and positively impacts the birth parents, adoptive parents, and the children. Open adoption records will help the children by giving them a choice on whether to know their parents, as opposed to closed adoptions when the children could never know who or what their parents are like. Considering the birth parents have the right to tell their children or child why they had to give up a part of them, as for closed adoptions the birth parents will not be able to tell their children or child why they had to give them up. In addition, the health records would be a big factor to open adoptions with the result that the birth family could have different diseases, with references to closed adoptions they would not know about any diseases in the family. Open adoptions benefits and positively impacts everyone at hand.
Although many people are not happy with this decision, this is what the courts decided, so it is the reality of the situation. Due to factors such as cost, emotional consequences, and physical consequences, abortion should be the last case scenario. Following research, it can be concluded that adoption should be more readily available in America than abortion. “Adoption allows a birthparent to continue with her life, finish school and achieve other goals while knowing that her baby is being cared for. Adoptive children can grow up knowing they are in a stable home with a permanent family” (Brannagan n.p.
Introduction This paper will discuss the ensuing difficulties regarding teenage non-medical prescription drug use and the possible alternatives to reduce abuse in the youth population. Discussion There is an imperative need for parents to understand the physical and emotional problems their teens may be facing and get them the help they need to adequately and appropriately address the varying issues. Furthermore, most adults think of teen drug use as an outward expression of adolescent rebellion; a means to party and experiment. Moreover, parents are not aware that prescription drugs have become the latest and greatest way to do just that. “Many people ages 11 to 18 routinely take pills such as Vicodin, Percocet, Xanax, Klonopin, Adderal,
In this case, we can clearly see the abuse of patient autonomy of the two children because of their parents. The neglect of medical treatment for a common infection would be on parallel for murder if this case did not involve religious evidence to support the parents. The case itself is a difficulty. First, children under the age of 18 legal authority are given to the parents (this also includes patient autonomy). Then, the parents are part of a religious group that doesn’t allow the use of modern medicine.
Even in the few states that have not already mandated confidential care, teens still have the right to access care without parental consent. The courts have repeatedly ruled that required parental consent conflicts with the basic privacy rights of teenagers. Forcing parental involvement will infringe on the rights of minors and disrupt medical
On the other hand, parents in New Zealand named their child "Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii." The result of naming their child that? Not lovely. As the article explains, "A 9-year-old girl was taken away from her parents by the state so that her name could be changed..." (Paragraph 20) How bad does it have to get until parents realize naming their child something idiotic can turn out to be an extreme problem? Let alone, the 9 year old was most likely anxious and clueless.
Roe filed a lawsuit on wade claiming that a Texas law was criminalizing majority of every abortion. During that time period abortion were really only considered if the pregnancy was considered life threatening to the mother. This court case still remains one of the most intensely debated cases making the House Bill 3994 stand out.
