Moreover, Baby encounters rejection and stigma from authority figures and classmates, further contributing to her low self-esteem. For example, after a school teacher informed Xavier’s parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home- Baby is unwelcome at his house. Lauren was Baby friend; however after witnessing Baby’s home life she humiliated and excluded Baby. Furthermore, they were many instances where the social workers and teachers could have intervened and make a positive difference in Baby’s life. However, they all fail to do so; Baby lamented "they are afraid of my sadness" (O'Neill, 2006, p.128).
I started being disrespectful to my parents and not care about my grades. It was very challenging to even have a conversation with my parents because I wouldn 't listen, or wouldn 't care about the things they had to say. My freshman year was horrible but that was nothing compared to my sophomore year. My sophomore year was even more challenging cause right from the start I started to fool around and go out right after high school as if I didn’t have any homework. Most of
Teen pregnancy is unsatisfactory because sometimes mothers have to give away their children because they can’t take care of them. Girls that have an unwanted pregnancy might have to go through a painful abortion that can turn their life up-side-down. Teen pregnancy could have “social stigma,” which means you are separated from the people you want to be with most because you don’t fit in with your peers. Studies say that this is the worst thing that can happen in teen pregnancies. Teen pregnancy is unacceptable because you might love your child a lot but may not be able to take care of it because you dropped out of school and can’t make enough money to feed the baby or buy clothes or keep it warm.
In my opinion, a group home, foster care anything like that is traumatizing toward kids in the program. I know that because of experience. I hated foster care because it separated me from my family including my sisters. I really loved them but presently I don't care about them because I basically don’t know them anymore. That's what happens when you separate a family they end up not even knowing the person anymore they can end up to be a completely different
Many teens repress their feelings of anger which leads to a buildup of stress and eventually ends in major depression and outbursts. Yet they are too afraid to show their feelings to an adult who could help because many do not believe nor respect teen depression and stresses. Through all the stresses and buildup with lack of help they also are being overwhelmed with parent and school expectations of always needing to overachieve and never showing weakness, which creates a feeling of loneliness and rejection. The parents are putting academic responsibilities ahead of the child 's emotional wellbeing makes them feel as if they are a disappointment and unimportant to their family which lowers their self esteem and leads to feeling depressed. A major sign to look for is a drop in grades which could indicate a lack of focus that is onset by feeling this depression but then it will

I felt deeply hurt, not entirely because of the punishment but how my teacher had given up on me and uses me as a tool to warn the others. This led me to reflect on how I think of education, under my parent influence I used to think education is not important as they themselves did not receive much education and my family financial condition is quite bad so they would prefer me to work than schooling. But after this event, I start to think if I continue thinking like this eventually this incident will happen again and being looked down on. So I started to work hard in my studies and produced good result than my fellow peers. But my effort did not get recognise by others as I am in the lower tier of education (EM3, normal tech, ITE).
The lack of educational support from school contribute to students failure and stands against student's productivity. In addition, while students are suffering from the unqualified educational staff at school, most of their parents are uneducated and didn't have the sufficient awareness to follow their children educational progress. These unsupported environments lead student to drop out and stop enrolling in school. (Sara B, 2008) • Social family and economic issues: According to Al-Bayan (2013), There is no doubt that family plays an important role in motivating children to enroll in the educational field .It’s the cultivator of the primary values. So that can direct him either for education or isolate him from the value of being educated.
However, she used Big Lady as her source of comfort especially when she is sad. A family needs a good communication to have a strong connection. Communication is lacking in the father and daughter relationship. It is because Rica 's father have been avoiding her since the day that Rica started to question him and when she already realised things. Her father was not strong enough to face her.
Negligence plays a big role in the learner’s lives as they sometimes ignore the warnings that they get from their elders. So being ignorant can get one into a serious trouble as most of the children put their faith in their friends more than they do to their parents and teachers. Peer pressure is the most concern in our young generations as they rather do what their friends tells them to do and ignore what the teachers and their parents are saying. I say this because the same mistake of peer pressure happened to the Grade 12’s of Crystal Springs Combined School in Polokong .Some of the learners from that school had an alcohol with them and they refused to
