Baby’s examples of acceptable behaviours were derived from an environment inundated with prostitutes and drug addicts which negatively impacted her well-being. By her own admission the women she admires were “the young drug addicts” (O’Neill, 2006). Take for instance when Baby saw a prostitute with a tattoo; she decided “I would get a tattoo of a butterfly on me before I turned fourteen” (p.257). Lack of maternal support lead Baby down a dark path, because in the presence of her two foster mothers, Baby flourishes; she feels loved and appreciated because she has a routine. For instance Baby remarked “I wasn’t sure whether I wanted [Isabelle] to let go of me” this is a clear indicator that she needed a mother’s

The parents that emphasize good character and raise the children to be more than phenomenal, impact our society greatly; let alone the foster children’s lives. Those are the kind of parents we need to encourage to have open arms and embrace foster children to truly effect their lives for the best of them. It’s a tragedy that finding beneficial parents are so laborious. “More than one-half of children in foster care have ever experienced caregiver violence or caregiver incarceration and almost two-thirds have lived with someone who had an alcoholic or drug problem” (Bramlett).
One mother commented, “I have really enjoyed reading this book but I would not recommend this for my teenage children to read. The reason behind my hesitation is because the way the ‘monster’ makes [Kristina] feel is almost enticing rather than revolting” ("All Member Reviews for Crank”). If mothers and fathers are working toward keeping their children away from drugs as they grow up, they certainly do not want a character like Kristina threatening the effectiveness of their parenting. Since Kristina describes herself as “the perfect daughter” and a “gifted high school junior” at the beginning of the novel, many young adult readers can identify with her, which also implies that any young adult, regardless of their perfect GPA or involvement in numerous after school activities, can
Girls and Boys both have fears but yet the girls are the ones who are most likely to be approached with the question : weren 't you scared?

She falls into the junkie lifestyle in the hopes that she can escape her painful family dynamic that includes an absent, drug addicted father, and a mother who barely pays any attention to her and denies her obvious drug addiction. The behavior of each set of parents deeply influences the development of each girl as a person, but also proves that despite the type of parent featured within YA literature, these characters are always designed to give the protagonist increased independence throughout the novel, and embark on their own journeys without parental interference. Since young adult literature is specifically geared toward adolescents, the less than perfect parents depicted in novels like The Hunger Games and Crank provide readers with
They practiced this on me, my siblings, and the daycare kids (with parental consent). In different instances, this would come up in conversations and the reactions were for the majority “that’s awful” or “poor thing” or “I can’t understand how anyone could do such a thing” and I never fully understood why. My mother was raised with an abusive father and a compromising mother (who too was dealing with the abuse), so I have seen how a negative experience can have a positive impact/result (message) on a person/child. I have now grown a curiosity to understand the different limits of child abuse and believe what my parents did benefitted me and any other children who received this discipline. With that in mind, I am going to define, and explore different aspects of child abuse with some modern examples.

According to Rob White, most parents who suspect their child of being in a gang do not have time to help, programs that would directly help the youth in gangs would be extremely beneficial because it could give a child a sense of family that they yearn for (Indigenous youth and gangs as family). Creating and starting these programs would be hard work but well worth it in the long run if it can help and save children from getting caught up in the dangerous life of a
