To contribute to the psychological growth of children, parents can also be evaluated for the upbringing of their child and how their actions affect the different levels of their child’s core development system. Parents, being the most influential factor in the contribution to a child’s behavior during growth, closely monitor and filter behavior into what they consider wrong and right through different means of discipline. Discipline like this can be easily separated into two categories: reward, and punishment. Punishment, when used as a primary form of discipline, can hinder the cognitive development of their children. This can produce a psychological turmoil within the child and often leads to several forms of depression and anxiety
But there are psychologically as well as legally broken homes. Mavis Hetherington reports that in the year following the break up, children in broken families are more likely to suffer psychological distress, but in the long run they can cope more successfully than children in intact families where parents do not get along. Numerous studies confirm that most children are adversely affected by the divorce of their parents and the struggle of the custodial parent to provide for the well-being of the children in the absence of the other parent. Quite often the important element is not that the home is broken, but the process of disorganization and disintegration that preceded it. In a broad sense, family disorganization means a breakdown of unity, loyalty, consensus, and the normal functioning of the family unit; but, in a more restricted sense, a broken home is one in which the marriage relation has been severed or the children are separated from their parents and this has a great impact on the child’s

Due to child labor being present in these countries, the children are unable to receive a formal education which in the long run is causing them to be underperforming members of society. Child labor is also causing the children to be mentally, physically, and emotionally scarred for the remainder of their lives. Some of the causes for the children being traumatized include being abused at their workplace or being sold into work by their parents. One of the biggest rights denied to the children, however, is their right to play. Many of the children cannot play due to the long and strenuous 12 to 16 hour work days.
Little is known about children suicide. There are various studies conducted on children who are suicidal thoughts or attempts. There are some factors within a child’s environment that can lead to developmental issues.

Many refugees have had limited secondary education in refugee camps, which makes staying in school increasingly difficult. A study that interviewed refugees living in Phoenix, Arizona, found that the language barrier was the single greatest impediment to successful integration in the community and the ability to be successful in school. Additional barriers exist for refugee populations that impede them from achieving their potential in school. For example, they may face academic challenges because of the lack of academic support at home, separation from their family, fear of authority figures, and inappropriate grade
Abstract The relationship between parents and their children is somewhat hard to investigate. This paper will shed light on how certain personality traits held by parents can affect their children positively or negatively.

The method used will be qualitative research.
As a child grows up it is harder to have good family management. As a child becomes an adolescent having clear family routines and also nurturing the child’s growing autonomy is beneficial (Antunes). Violence can have lasting negative impacts on children and having a family that cares for them can help prevent that (Antunes). The problem is it is hard for many parents in low-income communities to support their children given their lifestyle. Lack of parental care and nurture perpetuates violence especially if the relationships within the family are already abusive (Kramer).
It makes kids change there perspective in a bad way. For example, some people say Pony boy should be sent off. The question is... What if you were in his place? What if he starts to fail from stress and wants to drop out of school?

Quite often, children are released from the foster care system without preparation for the outside world. “Aging out” has recently become a major area of critique. Author, Cris Beam, includes statistics backing that “20,000 youth “age out” each year” (61); a large quantity of the juveniles are unlucky to be as successful as a child with a permanent family (Beam 61). Youth that have had experience in the foster care system have larger reports of pregnancy and incarceration. Flaws within the system continue to affect children and juveniles throughout their lives.
