When parents choose to unwind a child, the entire family is affected. The siblings of an unwound child would likely go through extreme emotions (Shusterman 29-30). They could feel powerless because they cannot prevent the unwinding, and they could go into despair as one would expect from a child losing a sibling. These two combined, if felt strongly, could cause depression. Additionally, after witnessing a sibling being torn away from the home and then knowing that their parents might try to unwind a child again, the child might also experience fear, for his or her own life could be at stake in the future, which would only further tension in the family.
New parents are hard to accept, especially when the child has been passed home to home. These attachment issues may restrict the child from moving forward in their lives and excelling in the new environment provided (Robin). The lack of stability in the system is only setting up the children up for failure, according to Stone, “we treated foster children as if they were our own, yet many of them never felt as if they were.” It is difficult for young children and adolescents to comprehend the separation of their parents let alone the process of moving to multiple foster homes while under the guardianship of the state. Other children mask their hesitation at being attached to a family by letting others see only what they want to see. The children are attached, but only on a “superficial level” (Robin).
Walking into a situation like this can be scary at times, and some parents may not be very accepting of their child. When a child is born, they think about the future they will have. It’s hard for parents of transgenders to understand the changes for their child. Her mother is embarrassed of her child when she first found out the news, and
First, there can be some stress and guilt because a child is suffering (Falvo, 2013). 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,
This may affect the child by closing off and not being an active part of the family and feeling misplaced. Not feeling like you belong somewhere can be stressful, and the child can begin to hold anger against their parents for leaving them. They could become depressed and lack dopamine in their brain from not feeling love enough. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter in the brain that is activated when a person feels loved or pleasured. The lack of dopamine in the brain can lead to “risk for future aggression” (Mattson) and the child could become distant from everyone and lash out when spoken to because they “misinterpret the behavior of
A: If there are children involved, most couples worry about how to integrate them into the relationship. They wonder how they 'll each do with the new responsibility and commitment to family that adding dependent people to the mix inevitably brings.

These feelings can be similar to those experienced when we encounter any other significant loss, such as a death or divorce (15). Moses, 1987 also revealed that parents of disabled child may even experience feelings and symptoms of traumatic stress, particularly at the time of their child’s diagnosis. Parents need to have the space to fully experience and express all of these important feelings. Letting go of the hopes and dreams that we originally had about their child or children, and which no longer serve us, is an exceptionally complicated and complex process. Parents often find themselves juggling the daily needs of their family with medical and therapy appointments, teacher meetings and advocating for services
Studies have shown significantly that children need both parents in their life, especially during times of development. Girls growing up without a father, or emotional bond with their fathers, can cause them to search for love in men elsewhere – which could be cults. Children hold resentment to parents who leave, or are absent in their lives, often having feelings of loneliness and abandonment. Parent Alienation Syndrome can also prompt children to want to find a new place to participate in to get away from their parent/guardian. It is imperative for parents to understand some indicators of their child potentially being involved in a cult.
Why should people adopt? Adoption is the act of making a person the parent to someone who is not his or her own child. To know that a child is being loved and is safe changes their view on the world. Once they felt alone and now they feel they have been found. People wanting to become parents should adopt to provide a loving home to children who have emotional or physical challenges, The adoptees get to have family of their own if they couldn't have children themselves, and to help birth parents who are unable to provide for their child.
Many fear that seeking treatment could adversely affect their position. Apart from barriers to care experiencing life is much different for those with the disorder. Many do not feel comfortable in crowds or even doing routine errands alone. This may be enough to even push some to have panic attacks (Feczer & Bjorklund, 2009). Families of soldiers returning with PTSD also face many challenges.
Parents also have to be aware of problems post adoption. Children are often asking many questions, such as “ Why did you chose to adopt me”, or “ Did my birth parents not love me?”. The role of an adoptive parent is rewarding, however it can be difficult. Children also often wonder why their parents left them. Being exposed to substances in the womb, such as alcohol and drugs, no structure in family environment, inadequate nutrition, and placement at an older age can all put a child at risk for these problems.
At the age of Eight he was taken away from his mother. We may know that it could of been for the best, yet that can play a role in a child when they are maturing. This can hurt kids with whom to trust, for the one person you are suppose to be able to depend on as a child was taken away from him. This can hurt the relationships they have with others for they are scared so they act out. Maybe even they are scared to get “attached” to the other caregiver, for the child may think that they will just be taken away also.
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
"The man who loses his job or cannot support his family as he thinks he should feels that he has failed as a man and as a husband" (Cooney 54). When parents deal with tough financial situations, it can cause stress and anger within them. Some parents feel the need to take that stress and anger out on their children because they may feel their children are the reason they are in that financial situation, so the only way to get rid of that anger and frustration is to abuse that child. The effects of child neglect and abuse include: losing their parents, being moved into a foster care or a different facility, they may never feel the love of a parent, and many other effects come with neglecting and abusing a child. Both on the child and the parents.
