Although Allison attempts to bring diversity to the article by mentioning how factors effect experiences, she seems to generalize her statements. In the beginning of her article, Rachel Allison mentions an article that speaks about false portrayal that hooking up has in college culture because of its low percentage of students. Although the other article focused on the percentage of people hooking up, Allison and her colleague, Barbara J. Risman
I guess I will choose that colleges should not enforce a curve on grades because that is cheating and most colleges have a law or prohibition on cheating. In a way this is some colleges cheating in ranking and on grades. Sometimes it’s not really about the grades, but the knowledge that students are able to bring with them and apply it to their future job. Colleges are supposed to prep students for the world ahead of them and help

Long constructed an intensive study on the effects of social class on belongingness within a small liberal arts college similar to Skidmore College. The survey included 322 participants taking multiple surveys about adjustment to college, sense of belongingness at college, and social class. The study found that “Indeed, social-class background was strongly related to a sense of belonging at college, which in turn predicted social and academic adjustment to college, quality of experience at college, and academic performance”(Ostrove and Long, 2007). This finding can be applied to the social class background of students at Skidmore College. Students of a lower socioeconomic background have a more difficult social adjustment than students of higher social class.
It was a right given to them by a case back in 1985, in which a person was killed by deadly force. Nevertheless, that is why sometimes police officers might get away with the killing of a citizen because there is not enough evidence that the use of force was not necessary. If these cameras are installed in officers uniforms the use of force will definitely decrease and will make the community feel safer and police officers gain more respect from the public. Finally, if the use of force is not necessary then a police officer can get suspend from the department after a judge has viewed the happenings of the case. The uses of cameras will not only make police officers use less force and the public feel safer, but it will also help the country become a safer place
The Wounded Heart The book The Wounded Heart is a book written for the purpose of offering hope for adult victims of childhood sexual abuse.

This book takes a look at the issues related to sexual abuse, while also looking for God for peace and
According to the social learning theory, children who are exposed to family violence are more likely to believe it is acceptable (Barnett, Miller-Perrin & Perrin, 2011). Therefore, it is our job as a society to work towards bringing awareness to family violence so that cycles of abuse can come to an
The practice of spanking often correlates with children developing into violent adolescents. In addition to its ineffectiveness at correcting children’s behaviour, spanking can lead to life long side effects. Long term effects of corporal punishment that children develop include mental health issues, increase in delinquent behaviour during childhood, criminal behaviour and negative parent-child relationships. (Sage Journals, 2000) In addition to long term side effects that corporal punishment has on children, national professional organizations agree and strive to eliminate corporal punishment.

The effects of growing up in a family where family members are at risk for the deportation can also be understood from the perspective of toxic stress, that is, the notion that adverse experiences that upset child, parent and household, can result in biological, neurological and psychological changes. (Shonkoff, Boyce & McEwen, 2009).” Furthermore Human Impact Partners stated, “a child’s health and wellbeing is predicated upon the parent’s ability to provide family economic stability, to access needed services. Thus, it is not surprising, given the multiple stresses unauthorized parents experience, that parent, legal status is a predictor of multiple adverse outcomes for children, including emotional and wellbeing.” According to Human Impact Partners, “children who come from unauthorized immigrants has found that they are more likely going to face the following, ‘anxiety, fear, sadness, posttraumatic stress symptoms, anger and withdrawal.’”(2013; Polochnick & Perreria, 2010). Yoshikawa reports that low-income mothers face things like, “occupational stress, psychological distress, little social support and the lack of child care. Which effects a child’s cognitive development from the ages twenty-four to thirty-six months old.” Furthermore, because of the fear of being deported, families are afraid to get health care, as stated by Bean, Leach, Brown, Bachmeier & Hipp,
Thesis Statement The impact of domestic violence on children was a topic chosen to analyze the profundity of their lives in different aspects. The research on domestic violence’s impact on children’s lives has been rather enthralling and guided me to explore the depths of a child’s life after domestic violence. With evidence from plausible articles, the paper scrutinizes how undoubtedly domestic violence impacts a child’s life. Evidence encompasses that domestic violence impacts the life of a child (a) physically, (b) verbally, and (c) mentally or emotionally. The corroboration accumulated will facilitate in demonstrating how domestic violence verily impacts a child’s life.
The study also found that positive parenting may moderate children’s association with intimate partner violence. The results from this study show that it is imperative that parents practice positive parenting and children not be exposed to situations where violence or abuse take places because these can cause profound effects on children psychologically, whether it is dealing with stress, coping with trauma, perceiving threats, hyperarousal, avoidance, fear, security, interpersonal relationships, and negative self-attributions. All of these things can follow and often do follow children into adulthood. Also, children may repeat the same cycle they experienced with their own
