A pedophile is a person who sexually abuse children and pedophilia cases need to be taken into account for most of the parents because it can happen to anyone, especially children. Unfortunately, this matter remains silent as parents take it for granted. Children who face this problem usually afraid to tell their parents about what had happened to them because they either have been threatened by the suspect or their parents might not believe the story told by their children. This is because most of the pedophiles are someone they know and trust rather than strangers. For examples, close friends, neighbors, relatives, family’s acquaintances or even the children’s babysitter.
ii. Family Dysfunction Theory This theory explains that the family’s interactions may lead to abuse and often abuse occurs in broken relationships. Some reasons why children are confined to violence by a parent is because they are considered as a way of ‘getting at’ the other parent or that he/she may be a ‘scapegoat’, the unacceptable in the family and the cause for all the family’s ills. Kempe and Kempe (1978) suggested that sometimes child sexual abuse may help in keeping the families together; a teenage girl who is being sexually abused by his father who himself is in need of emotional and physical pleasure because such relations have been broken with his wife.
Sex Trafficking of Children Most children that are trafficked are runaways from home because of abuse (Child 1). Some children are victims of trafficking, in other words prostitution, by their family members. The family members prostitute their children for survival (Human 2). Children that are forced or persuaded into prostitution are brainwashed. The children or victims think it is the right thing to do to survive (Surprising 3).
Child abuse also termed as child maltreatment means the physical, psychological, or sexual mistreatment of a child by anyone also includes neglect of the child by parents or caregivers, etc. Neglect involves any action or lack of action by parents or caregivers which ultimately lead to the potential or actual damage to a kid. This neglect can occur at home, school, in any organization or community, etc. Child abuse and maltreatment are used interchangeably many times, but there is a little difference between them. Maltreatment refers to involving neglect, trafficking, and exploitation, etc.
The opposing side displayed that research suggested adolescents squeezed through the adult system are more likely to come out as violent career criminals than similar kids handled on the juvenile side (Lundstrom 88). This is false, due to researching more about each child it has came to my knowledge that a majority of kids released had a tendency to go back in to jail for committing other crimes such as theft or assault. Speak of Alex King, whose’ story of “Angels of Death”,
Many people have disregarded the fact that children too can commit despicable crimes; crimes that not even adults would think about committing. Juveniles have had their era in in being able to manipulating courts to give them a lighter sentences for their so-called “mistakes”. These juveniles have made puerile excuses to try and exonerate their actions by blaming their impulses, rather than taking accountability for them. Juveniles should be tried as adults due to being aware of their crimes and having an intention to kill, however, brain development and maturity can play a role into the reason why teens kill. With being tried as an adult juveniles should be granted the opportunity of freedom pending on their rehabilitation status and if requirements
Throughout the years, people have always wondered what motivates a sexual offender to keep reoffending and whether these acts are random or not. However, this subject has been very controversial and very broad. Although theorists have come up with several theories of why sexual offenders commit such acts and keep reoffending, there tends to be another explanation. According to Terry, the offense cycle describes several “cognitive processes that the offender uses to be able to continue offending” (Terry, 2014, pg. 71)
Everyone, at some point, has experienced emotional trauma or turmoil so it is difficult for some to see it as a way of abusing that is really out or the ordinary or worth recognition. CLOSING/TRANSITION SENTENCE… To identify their effects on a child it is important to first analyze the types of abuse. Emotional abuse, neglect, and domestic violence are the few main types. A
Introduction The topic of infant abuse and its social and emotional affects on infant development always seems to be ignored by many people. There have been articles written on criminals and the reason they became criminals is because of the abuse they experienced in their childhood. Not all criminals are victims of infant abuse but studies show that some of them most definitely are, and the most common kind of abuse is neglect. Knowing about infant abuse is important because it happens all around and if we know about it we can easily detect it instead of being ignorant about it.
Title: how does sexual assault affect the representation of innocence in both “The Kite Runner” and “Atonement”? In most cultures around the world , sex and desire are concealed from children by parents. According to Goldman and Goldman, it is mainly parents who advocate and abide to the socially constructed “cult of childhood innocence” which firmly places sexuality under the realm of adults. Knowledge of sex is considered to be harmful to children, ruining a naivety perceived to be desirable in them.
Ruth was abused as a child. Therefore she knew what it was like to be her niece. Sexual abuses seems to run in her family. The fact that her family anted to keep it a secrets was surprising to me. However I understand that she comes from a different family then I do.
Sex offenders also can have psychological traits. According to the article entitled “Juvenile delinquency: Lack of parental monitoring blame” by Udisa Islam, Islam stated that lack of parental control leads to teens being involved in criminal activity . Parents that do not control the behavior of their children and teach them morals and values can lead to their children become sexual offenders as adult. Islam also stated that 82 percent juveniles are more likely become drug addicts and committed other crimes because of lack of parental guidance .During pregnancy, mothers that abused alcohol can lead to their children having undeveloped brains.
William, It is sad to see such a thing happen to a young little girl. I think people believe sexting does not hurt someone because he or she is not causing physical harm to the other person. However, sexting cause severe psychological harm to the victim, especially if it happen to young adults. I considered sexting as a mental illness since the abusers is not in their right mind distributing sensitive images and being a naïve, immature bully. On the other hand the victim will suffer from mental anguish of embarrassment, depression, shame, and possibly guilt letting the other person take the pictures.
Care homes are temporary homes for children and adolescents whose parents/ carers are unable to look after them. As there is a range of children from different races, personalities, belief and more it would be easy for them to clash and get discriminated against. For example lily a younger child living within a care home is being picked on by an older child within the home. So to resolve this she told one of the carers in the home. Because there was two different stories between the children the carer decided to believe the older child because they thought lily was overreacting because she was younger and didn’t understand.
Author Jock Sturges quotes (Sturges), “What pedophiles and people who have sexual desires on children lose sight of to a terrible, terrible degree- a devastating degree- is that their victims are real people who will suffer forever whatever abuses are perpetrated on them.” Very often on the TV, radio and newspaper cover stories about children who are abused, abducted and even murdered, usually by strangers but it is important to know that these are not typical crimes. Sexual abusers are more likely to be people we know, and could well be people we care about; after all more than 7 out of 10 children who are sexually abused know their abuser. As a matter of fact, they are family members or friends, neighbors or babysitters and many hold responsible
