Cinder is then turned into a test dummy for the doctor because she was taken against her will to the testing site. “Cinder swallowed her panic and halted the robot with palm against its smooth forehead” (Marissa Meyer, 38). This is what she had to do while being tested on and the person she was paired to was the prince. In other words she so scared that she couldn’t test alone and she had to have someone else with her. After her step sisters volunteered her for the testing she learnt not to trust anyone and with not trusting anyone she became a very independent person.
A feral child is a kid who has lived in isolation from human contact starting from a very young age. They have little or no experience with human care, no loving or social behavior or any human language. I don’t believe that Nell would be classified as a feral child. She grew up with love and affection from her mother and sister, and interacted with both of them. The doctors assume she is mentally challenged because of the behaviors she displays, as well as not being able to understand or communicate with Jerry or Paula.
She would yell derogatory words, like “You’re nothing, nobody”(73), and that she was a “stupid girl”(26). Working day and night, she slaved away to every need or want that “The Mom” or “The Dad” sent her way. This continued until the morning of April 9, 2002, when Shyima was rescued at the age of 12, 6 months away from turning 13. It took time for her to trust the police and men in general, but eventually with the help of patience and understanding people like Mark, she began to
A feral child is a human that has lived without love and support from their parents, also they have lived far away from human contact since they were little. Oxana Malaya was cared by wild dogs at the age of 3 because of her parents’ negligence. Subsequently, she learned to walk on all fours, growled, bark, and sniffed at her food before she ate it. She was found 5 years later, and she could hardly speak. There are many effects of the negligence towards these children, for example Oxana, looked much older than what she really was.
In the community, they had a Handicapper General which was the person who was in charge of the handicaps. Handicaps are basically restrictions. If you were strong you would wear weights, if you were pretty you would wear a mask, and if you were smart they would put a buzzer in your ear to scatter away all of your thoughts. Everyone was brought down to the same level and had no freedom to be themselves all because the Handicapper General wanted to make a utopia but in reality, she was making a dystopia. "Two years in prison and two thousand dollars fine for every ball I took out," said George.
In the sixth grade, she dropped out due to the lack of family support throughout the school. As a child before reaching her middle teens, Nancy was molested by some men from her area. There were no reported early criminal acts completed by Nannie Doss before her serial killings. Her household was very strict and she could not get out and do things with others. She committed 11 murders.The Giggling Granny completed her first murder while being with her first husband.
Oxana did not receive nurture from her biological family; therefore she made comfort with her dog companions, who later were the ones to shape Oxana’s behaviour and personality. Oxana Malaya was born in November 1983 to alcoholic parents in a small village in southern Ukraine. Oxana was born as a normal human child, although her characteristics were seen as abnormal. Due to Oxana’s parents being alcoholic they were not able to take care of themselves and neglected Oxana at an early age. At the age of 2, Oxana was left outside by her drunk parents and was
Juliet parents supported Juliet so much that when it came to making a decision on her own, she literally crashed and burned because she had never made that big of a choice on her own. “They have taken who I am as well as my what I was and i’m desperate for them both again.” (Myers 25) In contrast to Juliet, Junice has absolutely no support in her life since her mother Leslie Ambers was placed in Bedford Hills Prison for selling illegal drugs. Compared to Juliet, Junice has no aid on the choices she makes for her and her little sister, basically leaving her making adult decisions at young
I used Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques with some of my clients. I was not trained in this therapy but was familiar with the idea of being in the here-and-now. This technique worked for my schizophrenic client by keeping her focused on what was happening each day by writing in a journal and distracting her from what she thought had been happening in her past. I was able to use Art Therapy with the client I had with PTSD, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I had one client on probation who was ordered to be in counseling before she could get off of probation.
"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. "-Muhammad Ali. In my book, Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes by Chris Crutcher this quote is perfect. This is about a girl who was burned when she was younger. Everyone thinks the burns are from a pot of spaghetti but only a selected few know that her dad actually did it.
