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
Children are able to develop into adulthood hole they are seeing the responsibility their parents experience. The children brain in poverty is different from other children because they witness so much violence, housing problems and family issues. These children feel like their is no hope for the future in it can lead to not continuing. This can be extremely hard for a child to achieve success. Not only do they feel like their is not hope but they also feel like there is no going back.
Life is composed of a bunch of different events, some great and some not so good. For all of the orphans in the world, most of the events in their life fall into the not so good category. Imagine losing your parents and being put into a system you have no control of. In, The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline, she explains the how the system The Children’s Aid Society set up worked. They had very good intentions but unrealistic expectations, most of the kids were placed into bad homes and had to go to multiple new homes until they found on that was good for them.
Married couples encounter a lot of problems during their marriage, which leads to divorce and just accepts it as a way of life. Divorce is now a common act that people do when they no longer want to be married But during that decision making process parents tend to forget that it’s different when children are involved and the damage they are doing to the children and the psychological, social academical and emotional distress they will go through at some point in their lives. For this reason, we need to study the negative effects of divorce on children. Divorce causes children to think that they’re the victim or the cause of their parent’s separation; it will even cause children to think that their parents do not love them. According to an article Effects of Divorce on the family written by Fagan, P (2012) when parents divorce each other, another sort of divorce occurs between the parents and their children.
The loss of a family member has the ability to place strain on those who are surrounded by it and cause transformation to one’s life. In McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, the family shares the inability to be financially stable due to Malachy’s
I have seen the damaging effects in many divorced couples who cannot co-parent due to the hate they have for one another. Sadly, as “Popular Mechanics” portrays, the children are the ones who pay the price. Sometimes as parents we can be selfish; we should strive to act like the true mother in Solomon’s story by considering our child’s welfare in everything we do, including our marriage and even in our
Attachment issues can cause physical problems, such as failure to thrive, as well as emotional disorders like depression, failure to form attachments to caregivers, or mental-health disturbances. The more times a child is moved, the less likely he is to form secure attachments. Between 33 and 66 percent of foster-care arrangements are disrupted during the first two years, reports developmental psychologist, Brenda Jones Harden in "Safety and Stability for Foster Children," an article published in the winter 2004 issue of the journal The Future of Children. Kids with attachment issues might be distrustful and suspicious, unable to follow rules, or appear to have no sense of guilt over their behavior. Some attach too easily to any adult that try tries to care for them, but on a shallow level and to meet their basic
Infidelity can break up a home and the ending results can be divorce. When there are children involved, it might be challenging for the children to know what’s going on. In the Article "Children in Divorce: Intervention in the Phase of Separation,” Andre Derdeyn states that: As a result of rivalry or past friction with the departing parent, the child may feel responsible for the disruption of the marriage and for driving that parent away, while at the same time being angry at that parent for leaving. Because of anger and his wishes to be rid of the noncustodial parent, the child may feel guilty and may fear retaliation from that parent. (21) The parents may want to discuss with their children what is going on and that there might be some changes in the living arrangements between the two parents and no matter what is both parents still love them
Q: Differentiate the changing family situations middle-aged adults face. A: One of the best defining moments of becoming middle aged is letting go of their children that are now beginning their own adulthood. This can be quite a tragic experience, in fact, some people experience Empty Nest Syndrome. This is a condition of deeply depressed, anxious, worrisome, or lonely feelings of parents watch their children depart from their household. Usually, the sad feelings are only temporary and becomes easier to cope with in time.
Foster kids never really get a break until they are adopted by a loving family. Sadly, they usually are more unfortunate than lucky. Treating foster kids poorly and placing them in bad homes just to get your job done is not okay. The foster care system is failing kids badly, because they are more emotional, scared, and most have developmental issues because of what they have been through. According to many authors the statement about foster care systems failing is true.
There is, however, an emotional attachment that is broken and this can cause mild depression as well as anti social tendencies, but not as much as it would affect a child. Children depend on their parents for basic needs and after a death of a love one, their whole lives become shattered and they may feel that their world has ended. This sort of tragedy tends to cause a major depression stage as well as the ability to readily engage in anti-social behavior to cope with the emptiness the child feels. Through observation, I have learned that children who have experienced the death of an older person who was close to them tend to become delinquent and become more engaged in criminal activity. After speaking with a friend who mother had passed, his exact words to explain his behavior were, “My momma is gone.
(Al Gharaibeh, 2015). The most susceptible in a parental divorce are the children. Some children respond to divorce with aggressive or withdrawn behaviors. These behaviors in turn have emotional impact in their social lives. These children are left to feeling anxious, sad, lonely, and experience low self-esteem.
The most common psychological problems developed by these children are ADHD, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and bipolar disorder. Many children suffer from attachment disorders from their foster families when taken in at a young age. Removing children from their home has proved to be traumatic to the psychological development of the child, thus creating a tough decision for child protective services when children cannot be taken in by family members (Lohr & Jones, 2016). Researchers have found that children who are in foster homes or congregate homes are more likely to be put on psychiatric medications including antianxiety, antipsychotics, stimulants, and
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
