Unit 8 Assignment: Preventing Teen Pregnancy Kendal Metts Kaplan University Have you talked to your children about safe sex? Do they know all the risks and consequences of being sexually active at such a young age? Not all teens are talked to when it comes to having sex and the consequences of having sex. They don’t know how to use birth control or condoms properly or they don’t have them.
When we are young, we are considered youth. As we get older, we start to get wrinkles and our memory fades, which is aging. Another thing that can be changed is immaturity. Children are very immature. Even teenagers can be immature.
Comprehensive sex-ed often teaches adolescents that sex is natural and healthy while also letting students know that abstinence is the only way completely avoid unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Comprehensive sex-ed programs tend to discuss several contraceptives and the correct, responsible way to use them while letting students know that they do not completely stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. These specific programs also take several types of relationships into account, discussing married couples and teen relationships. Comprehensive sexual education provides accurate information and statistics about STDs and STIs while telling students that some are completely treatable if seen by a doctor. Girls and boys are also informed of several options given to them if and when an unwanted pregnancy occurs including carrying the baby to full term, giving the baby up for adoption, and abortions.
Kohlberg’s theory can certainly assist a children’s nurse in caring for a pre-school child in hospital. For example, according to Kohlberg, a young pre-school child is in the process of developing a sense of right and wrong. The child may see an illness as a form of punishment for something that he or she has done wrong. With an understanding of Kohlberg’s theory the children’s nurse can recognise this and take measures to reassure the child that they are not being punished and have done nothing
A child with Down syndrome ranges from when they were born to about 12 years old. They tend to develop at a slower rate in comparison to the typical developing child. Physical needs include sitting alone from up to 6 – 30 months, crawling at 8-22 months and standing from either 1 up to 3 ½ years. Physically their gross motor skills and fine motor skills are delayed in development which is why it is important to see a physiotherapist from the 1st or 2nd month after birth right up until they can ride a tricycle.
2.1 Explain how children and young people’s development is influenced by personal factors. Health Status – When a child is born, if there are issues relating to the mother i.e. drug or alcohol use, this can cause a baby to be born small or suffer from foetal alcohol syndrome. This can result in delay of development. After birth the baby will be smaller than average and can sometimes be born with deformed limbs, this can then limit them at school with taking part in certain sporting activities. Children with foetal alcohol syndrome may go on to misuse drugs and alcohol, become expelled from school due to poor behaviour or develop mental health problems.
With this in mind, it is crucial that these children receive therapy to help overcome their muscle atrophy and deficits in speech. According to the article Hippotherapy written by The Children’s TherAplay Foundation, Inc., it has been proven that hippotherapy for children over the age of two can have considerable therapeutic benefits (n.d.). On the contrary, others believe that conventional therapy, such as occupational and physical, is a key to helping children with Down syndrome overcome their
1.4. Analyse how children’s learning and development can be affected by: Personal factors are a child’s genes which influence development and how the brain works. This influences a child’s personality, potential and health which will later be influenced by their environment • Influences before and at birth: genetics, maternal, diet etc. during pregnancy and birth itself can have problems due to the lack of oxygen (cord around the neck) and injuries during birth.
Adderall is a prescription medication that is given to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Parents tend to think their kid has a problem from moving around a lot, playing when their parents want them to sit or acting up in school, such as choosing to not listen to directions when given, talking too much or playing in line.

Numerous studies, including those published by Elizabeth Baroni and her colleagues in 2004 and by Fred Danner and Barbara Phillips in 2008, have found that fewer hours of sleep is a direct result of earlier start times, as teenagers may not fully atone for earlier starting times with earlier bedtimes. Activities such as sports and work, as well as family and social schedules, may make it difficult for students to adjust to the earlier bedtime. Another thing is that the beginning of puberty brings two factors that can make this adjustment particularly difficult for teenagers: an increase in the amount of sleep needed and a change in the natural timing of the sleep cycle. Hormonal changes, in particular, the release of melatonin which changes the natural everyday rhythm of teenagers, making it more difficult for them to fall asleep early at night. Lack of sleep, as a result, can interfere with learning.
From the moment they are born, children are precious and deserve to be treated with uttermost care. They are vulnerable and as they grow, they spend a lot of time discovering and learning new stuff. Parents should be careful because during this period, what the child learns, sticks for the rest of their life. It is said that the environment has a way of shaping the life of children. We don't want our children to grow up with bad influence and that's why we should as parents invest in bringing up our children in an environment that bring out the best in them.
In the early years, after winning independence from Great Britain, the American colonies set up their government in accordance with their first constitution, the Articles of Confederation. This means that the majority of the power laid in the hands of the states and Congress, “the only institution of national authority” (Brinkley 151) at that time, had very little power. This distribution of authority was the manifestation of the American’s fear of a strong, central government. However, as time passed, more and more people came to agree that the national government was too weak and needed to be strengthened.
Have You Ever Wondered How The Constitution Guarded Against Tyranny? Have you ever wondered how the constitution guarded against tyranny? This was the main question facing the 55 delegates at the constitutional convention held in philadelphia in 1787. Their job was to “frame a government that was strong enough to serve the needs of the new nation, and yet did not create any kind of tyranny.” , (Background Essay).
If a natural disaster strikes my area and the power is out for weeks, one of the limitations would be that the people would not feel that safe. Security wouldn't be enforced and since there is no security, there could be several possibilities of theft. Another limitation would be searches for any and everything. Both of these limitations should be practiced, so even if there is a national disaster we could be ready. The 4th amendment can be used as an explanation of how the limits
