Research on maltreatment has found only identified children are studied and effects of maltreatment may not be immediately obvious. There is also a difficulty separating the effects of poverty and maltreatment due to the inability to make causal statements and the lack of clear definitions (McCoy & Keen,
The troubled teens aren’t learning the right amount of education they need. They are actually learning less than the average student. The author of “Report: Juvenile justice system schools “do more harm than good” says, “The education provided to the 70,000 juveniles incarcerated on any given day across the nation is “substandard” and “is setting them even further back in their ability to turn their lives around,” according to a report released today by the Southern Education Foundation.” Not one, Not two, but 70,000 juveniles are being set back in the education that’s being provided in the system. These juveniles can’t turn their lives around if they aren’t getting the proper
43) Adversity is a prominent factor in third-world countries, where citizens lack certain necessities of life, such as clean water or adequate shelter; however, these citizens are often pitied by others, rather than praised for their outstanding character or uncovered talent. When we think of starving children in remote places of the Earth, rather than commenting on their developed character born from adversity, we pity them because we see them in a lower state than us. Relying on adversity has strict limits; going beyond this limit will harm the subject, rather than promoting a notable personality. Adversity = not dependable
Many are the result of unresolved childhood abuse issues. The reasons are complex, yet for some survivors ongoing internal disorder keeps the foundation of the establishment of regularity, predictability and consistency. Numerous survivors live in 'crisis mode', reacting with provisional fixes to circumstances that don't resolve the fundamental issues. This can be exhausting and frustrating and add to sentiments of vulnerability and sadness. (Impact of Child Abuse, n.d.)
They tend to have poor social skills, low self-esteem, anger and higher rates of depression and anxiety. It is due to independence is discouraged; children are taught to follow rules rather than taking initiatives. They are not taught how to think. This lack of independence, both emotional and physical, can eventually result in low self-esteem. Nevertheless, the kids often experience increased anxiety.
Being narrow-minded is what makes people less aware of their surroundings and results in social isolation as people fail to understand others with different perspectives. If society was able to examine single narratives from various perspectives, acceptance would increase resulting in compassion and genuine inclusivity. To conclude, single stories lead to assumptions which may result in societal issues causing more harm than good, thus emphasizing the importance of being aware of tokenization and fallacy based
Children who are born first in the family are 6.14% less likely to suffer from neglect than children who are not the first-born. There was also a significant difference found among one-child families (47.87%) and multi-child families (58.20%). Parents who have more children have a difficult time giving equal attention to all children in the family. The study suggests children living in rural areas where minority and multi-child families belong are at a higher risk of neglect than children who live in urban China with families who spend more time together as a whole. To help explain why these children are neglected, the causes of neglect must be addressed.
Here are some physical, behavioural and intellectual symptoms of neglected children .They tend to demonstrate poor hygiene and have very bad breath or decaying teeth. If a child wear inappropriate clothes for weather, he or she might be a victim of child neglect. They will also have difficulties in meeting friends and exhibit low self-esteem. In addition, a neglected child will have a variety of academic problems, such as play truant. They will also exhibit stealing, vandalism or other criminal
In addition, vague policy mandates can be a disadvantage to public administrators because vague policies can lead to different interpretations of a policy and allow room for confusion and tension to arise among people in achieving a desire goal. According to Feldman, the presence of ‘‘many possible ways of perceiving’’ means that there are ‘‘competing interpretations’’ ( Feldman,1989, 7). Therefore, an organizational goal loses clear understanding, and eventually becomes inconclusive and unproductive when it
Abused children often have trouble having their allegations collaborated as legal and social service investigations of abuse allegations contribute to inaccurate eyewitness accounts and false memories that make it difficult for the legal system to protect these vulnerable children (Goodman, et al., 2001). Clinicians find it hard to classify abused from nonabused children due to a lack of a psychological profile for abused children (Kendall-Tackett, Williams, & Finkelhor, 1993). When there are no other witnesses to corroborate children’s accounts, investigators often employ suggestive interviewing techniques that sometimes shape children’s false memories that build the investigators’ reports (Krackow & Lynn, 2003). Some research has found that nonabused children
Welsh and Harris (2013) seeks to explain the inability of the justice programs to not work in stating, “The problem is that many criminal justice interventions fall short of their goals because of poor planning, poor implementation, and poor evaluation. It is fair to say we have not yet discovered “what works” to reduce crime.” From this, it is clear that the development of interventions is not the issue and not the cause for them to not succeed in their mandates but the problem is within their planning. Welsh and Harris (2013) believes that in order to
Moreover, within the subgroup there are different stressors that may potentially put someone at higher risk for an adverse event. By identifying a subgroup as different it may lead discrimination from other subgroups. However, if disaggregated data was not able to assess sub groups programs could not be responsive to the needs of the subgroup. Hence, the data can determine who is more susceptible for disease, where do they reside, and implement policies to address the issue (Tshabalala & Taylor, 2016). Nonetheless, due to the extensive amount of aggregated data, lack of disaggregated data may lead to poor informed decisions in regards to community needs.
Tragedy in Child Protection There are many flaws throughout the child welfare system that can hinder its overall goal of protecting children. There have been several cases in child protection that have resulted in tragedy, either within the foster care system itself, or in the child’s biological home. Child Protective Services (CPS) is a government agency that exists to protect children from neglect and/or maltreatment. The purpose of CPS is to ensure that the child is in a safe environment. There are a considerable amount of cases where CPS workers did not protect the children by not placing them in adequate environments.
