Child abuse is a lot different today than it was in the Victorian Era, in that physical and emotional outrage is managed better now. Back in the victorian era, maltreating a youngster was an issue where kids did not have the ability to go to the counselor and talk about what was happening. One lady named Margaret had a wonderful husband, until he started demanding the woman and her youth what to do, what to wear, and made her tell her babies to straighten up, even though the innocent kids behaved wonderfully. Luckily, she received help from a hotline that dealt with delinquency, called NSPCC. "The NSPCC’s work with my children gave them the light back behind their eyes," (NSPCC, 2017).
The Struggle of Everyday Life In Anna Quindlen’s essay “School’s Out for Summer” she expresses the importance in why we need to end child hunger and the struggles that parents go though to make sure that their child get a good meal that day, even if they don't eat, the child will still get a meal. Child hunger is a problem for everybody in the world we live in today. It's not just in rural african countries, but its also in the “best country” in the world, some people may say, which is United States.

Have you ever seen innocent kids and disappointed parents crying in front of happy smile of other families? That sad image is usually caught in the lottery of any charter school.

Although Sklar may be trying to create a metaphor when saying, “If the U.S. government were a parent, it would be guilty of child abuse” (Sklar 15). This statement is actually shockingly true. As stated before, despite Sklar’s apparent lax tone, she continuously backs her words up with solid information. For example, her slight comedic route while discussing child poverty is followed with a frightening statistic that “... proportionately more children die before their first birthday in the United States than in 20 other countries” (Sklar 15). This really captures the audience 's emotions as well as appealing to their logic.
Even though the optimal American Dream doesn’t promise that all citizens will achieve personal success, it offers equality and fortunes for them to pursue dreams through hard work. However, during the Industrial Age, American Dream didn’t apply to lower-class proletariat.

But, they did realize that fantasy differed from reality after their arrival. As unskilled foreigners who suffered poverty and lacked experience and English skills, immigrants lived in nasty tenements located in city ghettos, earned little wages that
citizen would probably guess or argue that slavery doesn't exist today and that it ended once the thirteenth amendment was added to the Constitution. This misconception, again, is false, and slavery does in fact remain a prevalent issue in this country. Americans are unaware to these issues of slavery in different forms like trafficking because the media does not fully inform its audience on topics like these. News outlets would rather spend their broadcast time discussing possible international threats rather than focusing on the ones lying within our own borders. One example of current slavery in the United States is addressed in “Slavery in the Land of the Free” when readers are introduced to a young girl named Maria.
By enforcing a ban on public smoking we might be able to create a safer environment for the non-smoking population. Enforcing laws that are against public smoking will result in lesser kids to start smoking. In a recent survey, it is found that when kids see other people smoke, they find it fascinating and cool to a certain extent and will try to smoke their first cigarette. Although we know that smoking is harmful the government earns a fare amount of money from the sales of tobacco in the different forms and by putting a ban on public smoking the income would decrease. However is it actually worth getting money out of something we know affects the health negatively and causes illnesses as scary as
As Tierney explains, certain types of work as apprenticeship or family related chores after school can be constructive learning experience. But the type of child labor that has become the focus of international concern is the abusive, unhealthy, commercial exploitation of children that interferes with their education.

In addition to the maltreatment of children in foster care, another issue that arises is that children are moved from one foster care home to another on an average of every six weeks (NCANDS, 2012). With the changes in the caregivers of children in foster care experience, the more likely they are to exhibit oppositional behavior, crying, and clinging. With that being said, in 2012, 23,396 youth aged out of the U.S. foster care system without the emotional and financial support necessary to succeed. Nearly 40% had been homeless or couch surfed, nearly 60% of young men had been convicted of a crime, and only 48% were employed. Seventy-five percent of women and 33% of men receive government benefits to meet basic needs.
”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves.

This program brought much security and relief to many young people to openly get jobs and a driver’s license for eligible undocumented immigrants under 31 years old.
