Drugs and alcohol were another causation that he brought up as a reason for abuse. The substance abuse theory has been a disputed claim as a cause of child abuse. As stated, “Although it would be convenient to blame substance abuse as the cause of family violence, to do so would be to overlook all the interlocking dynamics that are both involved in both substance abuse and family violence” (Wallace, 24). Nonetheless, he did mention substance abuse as a factor of child abuse that he witnessed personally in his career. The last aspect he mentioned which I found interesting was generational ignorance of the family.
Baby encounters stigma from authority figures and classmates, further contributing to her low self-esteem. For example, after a school teacher informed Xavier’s parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home - Baby is unwelcome at his house. Lauren was Baby friend; however after witnessing Baby’s home life she humiliated and excluded Baby. Furthermore, they were many instances where the social workers and teachers could have intervened and made a positive difference in Baby’s life. However, they all fail to do so; Baby lamented "they are afraid of my sadness" (O 'Neill, 2006,
Parental rejection is the negative treatment of children by their parents or guardians, who weren’t necessarily abused or neglected, but were raised with little to no love. Studies on the effects of parental rejection showed that parents who were rejecting of their children,
Victor (1998) writes “kidnapping rumors are metaphors for parental worries about their children 's future in a society which is perceived to be unsafe for children” (p. 52). In the case of the Satanic panic, one concrete negative consequence of this fear about children was that the rumors led to parents to take their kids out of school for a day. Although it was only a day, missing school impacts a child’s education. Ironically, better-educated people were less susceptible to believing the rumors about Satanism, and thus didn’t take their kids out of
As a result of attachment issues foster children tend to feel uneasy in the home they are placed in. According to Dashaun Jackson who was raised in a foster home, “I found that foster care did not build families. It didn’t give me the opportunity to be a child. It forced me to mature a lot faster than my peers. It made me live life thinking that “today is the day that I’ll be leaving,” so don’t get comfortable and definitely don’t get attached to anyone.” The results of being in a foster home has made many other foster children experience similar feelings to being in a foster home.
Also, neglect can be, not paying attention to a person health issues, not giving support, left an individual unsupervised, failure in providing medical care for a person. However, as it relates to the case study, Mrs. Thompson before she died was badly abuse and has been neglected by a staff member that causes her untimely death. However, Mrs. Thompson had suffered from abused, first physically, whereby her head was shoved through a wall and causes a number of bruises. According to gov.uk, all abuses are to be reported when a service user is not being treated with the right care at a care home or if they have been mistreated by any care
Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do. These people are not allowed to live their own lives because of the fact that the society doesn’t want them to do so.
Some argue that the Foster Care system is ineffective and causes more harm than good. Children are traumatized from being moved home to home and never feel a sense of belonging. Being in the system can cause emotional, social, and life skill problems that can affect a child future. Many studies have shown that kids who are in Foster Care develop emotional, social and life skill problems that will affect them long-term, that will cause problems in their future as an adult. Some may often not be able to learn the basic life skills that will help them as a functional citizen in society.
Joseph A. Doyle Jr. (2007) discusses, “Children investigated for abuse or neglect are not tracked over time in a systematic way.” (p.1584). If the foster system does not efficiently track the wellbeing of these children, it makes it difficult to provide all the necessary support for them. Providing a program that will help track, transition, and counsel these children will greatly impact the overall improvement of the foster system. Foster care was not meant to be a permanent solution for these children. It was not developed to traumatize or negatively impact the outcome for the children place in the system.

Neglect is a harsh thing to go through when you have no one on your side especially by the people that are supposed to help you find a loving and caring family. Foster Care workers aren’t caring and looking out for the children like they are supposed to so that’s where the neglect comes from and that’s why this paper is getting written.

The lack of compensation and involvement caused the animosity of the Lackses towards the hospital and scientist involved with HeLa. The lack of involvement also displays with the state of Deborah and Zakariyya described as “trance,” “mouths open,” and “cheeks sagging” after having learned of the fate of Henrietta (265). Henrietta’s children grew up not knowing and understanding what happened to heir mother, which Skloot used to display the sufferings of the Lackses. Dissociation with families of scientific subjects caused harm to the
