This is why youths shouldn’t play football. Some say kids should be allowed to play football even though there is risk of concussions. Youths are very susceptible to concussions so they should not be allowed to play football. The number of kids in emergency rooms because of concussions has gone up. “Between 2001 and 2009, the number of kids under 19 visiting emergency rooms for concussions each year increased by 62 percent.” (Source #1,pg.1) More evidence states that, “...Pee Wee and Pop Warner players sustain from 240 to 585 head hits per season between ages 9 and 12, a critical period of brain development.”(Source #2,pg.4) This supports the claim that kids should not be able to play football because it is very dangerous and risky.
children have a parent in jail. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area alone, 72,000 children have lost a parent due to incarceration (Amachi, 2016). Due to the fact that the size of the problem is growing “and its tendency to impact already vulnerable children signals a need to clarify both the unique needs and challenges shared by these children as well as the individual qualities and circumstances that mediate the effect of parental incarceration” (La Vinge, Davies, & Brazzell, 2008, p. 2). Unfortunately, children who suffer from having an incarcerated parent are too often invisible to policy makers and social service organizations. Nature and Scope of Concern
The First World War was a major cause for a rapid decrease in the human population. The War created a gap in an entire generation and led to a baby-boom after the war was over. By looking at the graph, one can see that only about half the people sent into war came home unwounded and still alive. For instance, 12.000.000 soldiers were mobilised from 1914 to 1918 and about 2.000.000 soldiers died. This is a decrease of about 16 % of soldiers in 4 years.
while strategy makers earlier anticipated that disabled people were expressively less active as compare to others in the place of work. For that reason, the approaches for enlightening work prospects for the disabled hinge on the encouragement and incentive of owners, recent regulation assents the reality that disabled people are imperilled to biased discernment and rejection by the officials of businesses. 2.5.2. Children Act It is noted that the Children Act 2004 overhauls yet does not supersede Children Act 1989. Moreover, the Act gives an authoritative spine to the more extensive system for enhancing special kids' lives.
Studies show that early interventions provided for children with social and behavioural problems which are seen in children diagnosed with conditions such as Autism provides better outcomes(Bruinsma, Koegel, & Koegel, 2004) Literature has also revealed that preterm children who are vulnerable to developmental issues gain benefit from early interventions however it was seen that more improvements of the development of cognition is gained than the other domains (Barrera, Doucet, & Kitching, 1990; Brooks-gunn et al., 2011; Orton, Spittle, Doyle, Anderson, & Boyd, 2009) Advantages of early interventions are gained not only by the children and professionals but the parents’ as well. Studies reveal that families prefer early interventions and actively participate in the programmes. The compliance is more and parents feel that they have a major role in making key decisions about the child which aids in successful implementation of the interventions which in turn improves outcome (Bailey, Hebbeler, Scarborough, Spiker, & Mallik,
Introduction Recent research has shown that memory is not a passive system of automatic recording of all experiences, but a flexible function whose storage capacity is limited. Studies of the American cognitive psychologist Elisabeth Loftus in the 1990s, has shown that memories are sensitive to beliefs, expectations and suggestion, and that people can ‘‘remember” information they have not experienced, which is called false memories (Loftus & Ketcham, 2012). For more than 20 years, most of the research has focused on their dramatic consequences, particularly in the context of recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse in therapy, which have destroyed many victims and their families (Brédart, 2012). However, positive consequences of false memories
According to CNN, nearly 40% of all 12th-graders surveyed had used some sort of illicit drug in the past year. I continue to see people abuse drugs in my community, it’s time to start bringing light to this problem and hopefully an end. Drug abuse has been going on for hundreds of years, only recently scientists and medical professionals have come to understand that addiction is actually a disease. Despite what researchers have said, many people still consider addiction a choice and those who suffer from it have bad
Believe it or not, this scenario happens everyday and not many people know it. “More than 90% of these children live in countries affected by conflict” (McVeigh), which makes these children more susceptible to being abducted, kidnapped, or forced into joining the army. In a report by Karen McVeigh, it states, “Last week, the UN reported 1,700 children, some as young as 10, had been recruited to fight in the three-year conflict in Yemen.” Recently, the case of the child soldier in Guantanamo has drawn attention to the topic of whether child soldiers should be
Education and career than authoritative parenting styles. On the other hand, if only education and career are the children’s personal achievements, authoritarian parenting may be considered as an effective parenting style. But in fact, Over 800,000 people die by suicide every year. There is one death by suicide in the world every 40 seconds. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15–29 year-olds.
According to a research study following 63 case families with absent fathers, children who maintained contact with their fathers showed higher levels of success in life which led to the assertion that healthy relationships between father and child enhance the child’s ability to adapt to situations better than children who have had little guidance from a father figure: “When children feel loved and cared for by parents, their sense of emotional security is strengthened” (Edwards). It has been argued that having an absentee father impacts most adult outcomes, including success in educational achievements, which leads to success in the job market and ultimately building one’s family unit (Sutherland). Many literary works draw from real world experiences while developing characters as seen in the protagonist, Rachel, in Since We Fell. Without a paternal figure present during her childhood Rachel developed a void she seeks to fill as an adult and while traveling on the road of self-discovery battles inner demons and self-doubt. “Then she’d look out the window and fear the world and remember that ninety percent of herself was still at least forty percent more than she liked” (Lehane 137).
This translates to a rate of 2.25 children per 100,000 children in the general population and an average of nearly five children dying every day from abuse or neglect”. (www.childwarefare.gov) Human Rights Watch shares that “the real risks that children face are quite different: government statistics indicate that most sexual abuse of children are committed by family members or trusted authority figures, and by someone who has not previously been convicted of a sex offense.”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 has afforded the public with ammunition to fire back at those who prey on the vulnerable. Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe. Furthermore, we cannot solely rely on law enforcement, and others to keep our children safe we have to be proactive within the
Between 1999 and 2009 more than 60% of crimes committed by children have resulted in cautioned being applied which eventually are wiped from the child’s record. Half of offences committed by children are committed by those aged 15 or under. 1 The ministry of justice state that they do not intend to raise the age of criminal responsibility because it ‘isn’t in the interests of justice, of victims or the young people themselves’ they claim that under 18’s are handled differently and that only 3% of young offenders receive a custodial sentence. The current youth justice system is failing. Research translated that reoffending rates are as high as 72 per cent for children released from custody.
“The issue with the government’s response to PTSD today is that, but simply, the problem is bigger than anyone imagined a few years ago and potentially as large as the number of PTSD cases for Vietnam vets. A study in 1993 found that more than 830,000 Vietnam veterans suffered from symptoms related to PTSD to one degree or another upon returning home,” (Moran). Soldiers who return home from war typically suffer from related symptoms. Most soldiers who are affected are not acted on quick enough. “From 2005 to 2011, military spending on
“Childhood bereavement is one of society’s most chronically painful, yet rarely examined, and most underestimated phenomena,” explained Lynn Hughes, founder and chief advocate of Comfort Zone Camp. Between November 24 and December 7, 2009, Comfort Zone and Mathew Greenwald and associates conducted a survey of 1,006 adults, over the age of 25, to determine what percentage of them had suffered a significant loss before the age of 20. To their surprise, of the 1,006 people survey, 11% of them had lost at least one parent during their childhood. A loss of such caliber is one a child should never have to face, but it happens more often than we think. The effects of such a loss varies from child to child.
Introduction Child support a system filled with large flaws and injustices. Each year thousands of fathers are having mistakenly identified as “deadbeat”. Most child support guidelines are based on a flat percentage of one parents income, and with disregard of the noncustodial parent availability to pay, in some cases if noncustodial parent remarries, the income of both (the noncustodial parent and his or hers new legal partner) is taken in consideration in child support calculations to decide the amount of child support. These flaws create a large strain on non-custodial parents who are trying to make ends meet, and provides incentive for custodial parents to not work, be vindictive, interfere with visitation and numerous other actions that
