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
Plenty of placements are also done if the child is initially placed in short-term care but needs to be moved to long term. However, the more changes a child experiences decreases the chance of them returning home or being adopted. There are many children that are stuck in the foster care system because they do not have a biological family or an adoptive
When children are placed in institutions or in foster homes, family ties are broken. 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.
First, both foster parents/family and children undergo the pain of separation, once and if a child is reunited to his family of origin. The stipend for foster parents is not enough to provide for the overall needs of the child. Hence, foster care adoption may also mean that foster parents have the resources to be able to tend to the needs of the child. Thus, emotional and financial strains may be created within the foster family. It also creates a feeling somehow that there is never enough support or resources for the children in foster
In the past, most individuals with intellectual disabilities did not have children because they were not given proper treatment and were mainly forced in institutions with improper care. Because of the parents intellectual disability they may disregard some of the important things that a child needs, such as nutrition, hygiene, and attention. Another issue that parents with disabilities can face is trouble coping with their
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. One major factor is changes in parent’s behaviors in which can lead to a child’s irritability, withdrawal from friends, depression, loneliness, decline in academic performance and suicidal behaviors. In order to obtain decent risk factors among children, researchers conducted a study to investigate.
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. Mainly, it will discuss the Authoritarian and the Eysenck Personalities and how parents who possess these types of personality can affect their children latently. The method used will be qualitative research. This research paper will depend on journals and studies published by psychology veterans.
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).
