If the child is not receiving a corporal punishment and just occasionally a parent is in their right to do what they saw as appropriate. These are a weak point because does source any reliable data that stat the psychological aspect of children being spanked. He also does not he is biased on the information he is present in the article. Section #3 Dear Mr. Ponnuru, Even though you make some great points in your column on “In reality, spanking your child doesn’t make you a monster” I would have to contradict your claims.
Most of them seem to be respected and well-liked individuals, capable driving others towards believing they would not be capable of fulfilling a sexual offense. Most victims were young males whom the offenders had easy access to. In some cases, the abused children were never heard because of their position. Mike, for example, was problematic and underprivileged; similar was the case of the stepchildren that were promptly silenced by other adults. They select their victims wisely and ensure they were not likely to tell, such as the child molester who would abuse his girlfriend 's daughter because she was a “wild kid”.
Fetishism and paraphilia can be defined as a longstanding and persistent sexual interest that describes a powerful eroticization of a part of another person’s body (feet, hair, breasts), non-living objects (shoes, clothing, objects), (Kafka, 2010) or activities and experiences (sadism, masochism, voyeurism, and pedophilia) (Friedman & Downey, 2000). Many individuals view their fetishes to be a healthy expression of sexuality; however, it is considered a paraphilia disorder if it produces significant psychological distress or impairment of functioning (Dawson, Bannerman, & Lalumière, 2016). For the purpose of this paper, fetishism and paraphilia are defined as one in the same. Many fetishes are accepted by society such as seductive clothes,
In other words, it is believed that individuals learn this behavior by experiencing or being exposed to sexual deviant behavior. Bartol and Bartol (2012) also suggested that any form of sexual abuse in childhood can shaped longstanding cognitive problems. With this theory, not only being exposed at early onset, but also being exposed at early onset can cause some type of psychological effects. These psychological effects can cause sexual deviant behaviors. Yackovich (2012) stated that many sex offenders suffer from some type of mental disorders.
Children are traumatized from being moved home to home and never feel a sense of belonging. Being in the system can cause emotional, social, and life skill problems that can affect a child future. Many studies have shown that kids who are in Foster Care develop emotional, social and life skill problems that will affect them long-term, that will cause problems in their future as an adult. Some may often not be able to learn the basic life skills that will help them as a functional citizen in society.
According to Coates and Wade (2004) attributing the assault to a psychological disorder to naturalize his behaviour. However, this testimony leads to the idea that it is okay to rape young girls to help men get over the sexual anxiety issues. His responses do not indicate the details of the events on hand, nor the girls’ reactions to the assault. He also conceals his violence by using the word “vice”. On two occasions he said that he uses “sex as a vice” and “loved sex because of the vice at the time”.
Judgments of personal efficacy affect an individual’s choice of actions. For instance, people tend to avoid activities and situations they believe to be beyond their capabilities, but they are more likely to engage in activities they believe themselves capable of handling (Bandura, 1997). Thus, self-efficacy functions as a self-fulfilling prophecy as individuals who doubt their ability to achieve a satisfactory outcome in a particular situation will fail to even try to achieve their goals. Self-efficacy also influences how much effort and commitment an individual will take to perform a task. For example, research has shown how self-efficacy relates to the effort people will make to successfully change and maintain virtually every behaviour crucial to health, including exercise, diet, stress management, safe sex, smoking cessation, overcoming alcohol abuse, and compliance with treatment and prevention regimens (Bandura, 1997;Good & Abraham, 2011;Floyd, 2006).
Romeo and Juliet’s decision relates to Galvan’s research because both teens make a decision without thinking about future events. They are not thinking of these events of their actions because their prefrontal cortex is not fully developed. This impulsivity creates many altercations that would lead to their untimely
Gordon is not alone in her assessment of Mann’s work as unethical, the photographer was accused of sexualising her children and her work was occasionally condemned as amounting to child pornography. However, unlike Jock Sturges, whose images of nudist adolescents were in some ways reminiscent of Mann, her studio was never raided by FBI agents nor her equipment confiscated. No such action was taken against her. This begs the question, is there is a bipolar societal approach to the male and female gaze in relation to children and adolescents?
The article explores public masculinization of sexuality causing discomfort in women talking openly about sex. Shameful or improper feelings prevent open dialogue with regard to sex creating a social climate that does not support autonomy of gender order regarding sexuality. Culture factors greatly into how adolescents are taught and view sexuality. For example American teenagers are prone to be less open with their parents and more likely to hide their sexual identities more so than Dutch teenagers who are raised with their parents normalizing sexuality to them.
• Theories explaining the origins of the offending behaviour(s) There is no one cause for paedophilia but there can be a number of factors that can contribute to this such as mental illness, brain dysfunctions or childhood abuse (Howitt;1995). The most common assumption of why people commit sexual offenses is that they had a traumatic childhood experience and yes this can be one part of the equation as there is a high percentage of sex offenders who have reported being abused as a child, but this is not the only reason of why people are sexually attracted to pubescent children, as Schiffer 2008 gives that there is a high level of evidence that specify abnormalities in the brain of sex offenders and that these occur when the brain is developing,
Personal fable is the second concept in adolescent egocentrism, that is teenagers have an inner belief that they are invulnerable, unique, and special so that they can take risks such as unprotected sex, alcohol and drug abuse (Irwin et al., 1991). Specifically, teenager excessively discriminate their own feelings and thoughts from others and assume that their experiences are very distinctive than others’ experiences. Expressively, the teenager who is unsuccessful in comprehending the experiences and feeling they come across are also familiar to other people. Lapsley et al. (1989) pointed out that personal fable promotes the progress of identity during adolescence.
But this is not true. This will make the child fear the parent and believe that anything they do badly will result in spanking of some kind. So what’s there to say that if a kid that does something bad on the playground at school the kid who gets spanked at home won’t want to hit that kid back for doing something that wasn’t “approved” of in his/her household? It’s about time spanking comes to an end.”
Sex offenders also can have psychological traits. According to the article entitled “Juvenile delinquency: Lack of parental monitoring blame” by Udisa Islam, Islam stated that lack of parental control leads to teens being involved in criminal activity . Parents that do not control the behavior of their children and teach them morals and values can lead to their children become sexual offenders as adult. Islam also stated that 82 percent juveniles are more likely become drug addicts and committed other crimes because of lack of parental guidance .During pregnancy, mothers that abused alcohol can lead to their children having undeveloped brains.
Why is it, or is not, ethical to involuntarily treat sex offenders? There has been controversy regarding the ethics of sex offender treatment because some individuals view treatment as a form of punishment by putting the community's concern and needs over the offender's rights, and the treatment being involuntary. However, I believe it is ethical to involuntary treat sex offenders. The reasons as to why I believe this is because treatment is not a form of punishment and that voluntariness is not a significant variable in this type of situation.
