Child custody is a result of parents ending a marriage and then given parental rights and obligations toward their child (“Understanding the Difference”). Divorce itself has many hardships on the parents as well as the child. Though, custody is a whole other ball game. Child custody can have a positive and a negative outcome on children. Most people lean more towards the idea that
For girls, the Freudian Electra complex describes the events leading up to gender resolution. The young girl has 'penis envy' and resents the mother for not providing her with one. According to Freud, the conflicts may result in homosexuality, authority problems, and rejection of appropriate gender roles if not resolved. In latency stage (6-12 years of age) the drives that have been responsible for gratification in the previous stages appear relatively inactive. This is partly due to the repression of sexual drives that is accomplished during the oedipal stage.
Experimentation or curiosity often is a cause of an unexpected pregnancy. “Many parents have busy lives that prevent them from providing the guidance and support that their young teenagers need to make good decisions on issues such as sex, according to the website Parent Dish.” (R.Y Langham). Preventing teenage pregnancies are highly encouraged, not only for the teens benefit but also for the baby’s well-being. There are many causes to teen pregnancy such as the absence of parents, peer pressure, and glamorization of pregnancy. Becoming a young adult already has its share of personal issues, but having absent parents can result in loss of knowledge or wisdom.
And if they are positive for drug use, they must not feel paranoid and ashamed of themselves; many people can help them recover from that part of their life. Drug testing in schools or at home are both essential for the teenagers and to the
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. However, feminist theorists, Hall and Lloyd (1992), criticized the family dysfunction theory because they lack focus on the power relations within the family.
She experienced polyvictimization in the forms of physical abuse, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and most prominently, sexual abuse, before she was even two years old. She was deprived of nutrition, cleanliness, and the love of her parents. Beth also partook in sibling abuse in the forms of physical abuse, beating Jonathan when possible and trying to stab him, and sexual abuse, molesting him and pinching/pulling/kicking his private areas. Because of this maltreatment at such a pivotal part of her development, Beth developed attachment issues that prevented her from being able to create bonds with people, therefore allowing her to behave cruelly and feel no remorse. This most closely follows the Social Control theory, which explains that an individual who has experienced a lack of social connections will be more likely to participate in criminal
When that feeling of control is suddenly challenged by something as traumatic as sexual assault, some may feel embarrassed that they can no longer defend themselves because, in a situation like that, there is only so much the victim can do to defend himself or herself mentally and physically. The night Marianne was attacked, she was with her friend. When Marianne’s mother, Corinne found out about what happened to her on prom night, she called Trisha's mother to apologize if her daughter had been involved in what happened. Although Marianne’s friend wasn’t really involved, some people would try and show some type of sympathy for someone who has gone through such a traumatic experience. Instead, Trisha's mom immediately decided to exit herself and her daughter from the situation.
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.
Like Danielle, many other teenagers often disrespect their parents and lose their own self-respect and dignity at a very young age. Danielle was getting into trouble and always having problems with the police from actions she had committed. Some of these crimes included committing rebellious actions for a young teenager; such as stealing cars or leaving home when she wanted without returning, stealing from stores, and even fighting in public. Many kids and young teenagers after seeing this type of behavior once, are highly influenced to start to act in similar ways like this young teenage girl did. Her mother tried many things to get her off the streets, because being on the streets had nothing good for her.
Teen pregnancy is a communal problem, a family problem, and a personal problem all rolled into one. It frequently goes hand in hand with premarital sex. Problems come when the news needs to breach each parent’s party. After which, these impressions simply serve no purpose but to put them off, and deduce to mere nuisance to them when the truth of their situation slowly sinks in. How do they provide for the child if their parents cut them short financially?
What are some ways divorcing families can preserve their shared identity? Acknowledge their history? Divorcing families can preserve their shared identity by sharing the parenting, and working on keeping a relationship that will involve their children, if there is children involved. When parents keep the rules, and living arrangements similar to the ones before the divorce, the children will feel more secure in the transition of the divorce. Having both parents involved in decisions and not cuddling, or giving many gifts to make up for guilty feelings the parent may have because of the divorce.
Furthermore, the psychodynamic theory proposed that "criminals are frustrated and aggravated" due to negative events in their childhood which affect the individual 's unconscious. Osibin may have suffered from oppositional defiant disorder because she can easily have lost her temper and had an argument with her mother before deciding to shoot her in the head. Both the social learning theory and the psychodynamic theory emphasized that Alicia Osibin could have been exposed to early childhood aggression that resulted in an oppositional defiant

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.
