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).
In “The Favorite Child” by Ellen Weber Libby, the author shows how favoritism can have a negative effect on the favored child as well as the unfavored child. Throughout the essay, Libby explains how parents favoring one child over another can result in both the favored and unfavored child experiencing depression in their life. There are many ways that favoritism can impact the unfavored child in a negative way. First off, the unfavored children have never received affirmation from their parents so they often live their lives looking for validation. They grow up insecure and don't feel that they are lovable.
Evidence of the first factor arose during the States investigation when they identified that while Adam was in fifth grade, he once stated, “that he did not think highly of himself and believed that everyone else in the world deserved more than he did” (Sedensky, 2013, p 33). Additionally, a teacher remarked that he was intelligent, but not normal, with antisocial issues. Overall, he managed fairly well until he was in seventh grade, this is when his mother noticed a significant deterioration in his behavior. Others described him as being quiet, barely speaking or even participating and very hard to communicate with. More importantly, his writings had a disturbing amount of violence in them, throughout middle school.
Baby encounter rejection and stigma from her father, authority figures and classmates which bestow upon her little self-worth. O’Neill (2006) “I couldn’t plead for any rights because I didn’t have any.” (p. 72). • Society feared her sadness and teachers and social workers perpetuated the notion that she is a troubled kid. Baby said: “they are afraid of my sadness” (O’Neill, 2006, p.128). • Baby is unwelcomed at Xavier’s house after a school teacher informed his parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home.
General strain theory was developed by Robert Agnew. There are three major categories in the types of General strain theory: Failure to achieve positively valued goals, the loss of positively valued stimuli, and the presentation of negative stimuli. A positively valued goal has three sorts and those are money/economic success, status and respect. Lack of money causes strain because it is not obtainable through legitimate means. Strain will result from the lack of autonomy disproportionately affecting adolescents and the poor because of their lower position in society.
As a teenager, it is typically considered a right-of-passage to misbehave, act moody, be short-tempered, or slack off in school. Unfortunately, these behaviors are often symptoms of underlying issues. Depression is a common problem among adolescents, but is infrequently recognized among parents or teachers. In "Paul's Case" by Willa Cather, it is clear that Paul is unhappy with life, and is making life difficult for those around him. Unfortunately, nobody came to Paul's aid, and with no resources or confidants to rely on, Paul's hopelessness took over and he took his own life.
I was so hurt when I had to present in front of the class. Students would make fun of me but what left a laceration on my heart, mind, and soul was when my teachers would say “you will never make it” and “you are retarded”. Teachers would exclude me from activities because they thought I wasn’t smart enough. Have you ever been lost and hurt at the same time? I was hurt and lost at the same time.
The environment from home and his mother exerted a strong influence on Carol’s cognitive development. For example, the teachers reported that Carol was unable to have social play with his peers when she was in school. She showed a lot of aggression such as hitting and kicking, when things didn’t go her way. This “disruptive behaviour disorder” shows Carol was experiencing problems. Bronfenbrenner described it as “mirror image” which operates at interpersonal to international levels (Bronfenbrenner, 1961).
