Combating the problems of being disabled can be very challenging. But what makes it even more challenging is how other people perceive it. Overcoming the humiliation of being disabled involves its own issues varying from prejudice, to stereotype and discrimination. The stigma of disability can even extend to other members of the family. The disabled individual may be treated differently or excluded by those surrounding him/her, and that usually happens to the parents and siblings.
Abuse is another thing that has been linked, to problems in a child 's development. The earlier abuse and neglect occur in a child 's life the more severe the impact.

Although divorce has become such a regular aspect of today 's relationships the effects can alter a child 's life unexpectedly and produce uncertainty. Divorce affects all the members of the family in varying and drastic ways, but children are generally the most affected by this life change. When a child is born into a divorce (like I was) there are not a lot of effects that are noticeable on the surface since the child has not experienced any other lifestyle. Studies do show, however, that young children who experience the actual divorce respond with regressive behavior. Even though it may not be as noticeable at this age, the divorce can leave a child with a fear of not being loved and results in behaviors of “acting out” to gain the attention of their parent’s.

This man’s experiences of place and where he felt he belonged in society was nearly none existent. He felt he was a ‘burden on society’ (Sieger, et al., 2012). Loneliness and depression were side effects of his chronic illness which made his everyday life experiences very difficult. Even in the hospital where patient 0 was treated, he felt isolated; this was the space that he should have felt most safe and comfortable. Patient 0 was confined to his bed with little ability to move around, much like the other patients on his ward.
“Impacts of disability on ageing society” Robert Owen, the Welsh social reformer and one of the founders of utopian socialism and the cooperative movement stated that “In advanced age, and in cases of disability from accident, natural infirmity or any other cause, the individual shall be supported by the colony, and receive every comfort which kindness can administer.” For a long time, disability has become a major issue to the state or all sector of society must pay attention.
