These four conditions are consequences of abuse and neglect, the challenges of attachment to the caregiver, a child's changing senses, and response to stress (Committee on Early Childhood). Most caregivers foster more than one child at a time and give attention to some more than the others and they can take this very harshly. In a new situation with new strangers is hard especially for the older children who are accustomed to being with family members or guardian. In another source, “Children in Foster Care and the Developmental of Favorable Outcomes” by Cynthia V. Healey, she explains that children have become victims in the foster care system no matter if they end up adopted or not. Favorable outcome “were defined as demonstrations of emotions” during the middle of childhood (Children in Foster Care).
This type of family will greatly affect the behavior of the child because the parent’s (either mother or father) attention will be shifted to their new spouses and sometimes forget their children. This will give a big impact to the behavior of the child because he or she feels neglected or loneliness. But the major composition of a family that surely gives a big impact to the child is a broken family. The family can be broken in a variety of ways; Divorce, annulment, separation, desertion, and death mean that the family is structurally incomplete. When children are placed in institutions or in foster homes, family ties are broken.
Parents mostly view holding back the truth from their children as a simple means of protection of their children (Bridges, 2010). Parents seek to protect their children from being hurt by information that they view their children cannot handle (Lott, 2014). Matters such as separation of parents have seen to contribute a significant share of the lies that parents feed children. Parents assume that they can withhold the truth from their children about their marital issues thinking that they will tell the truth to their children later in life when they can understand the complexity of the matter at hand. Taking this example, when the children enquire about where their parents are when they are not at home.
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.
“Today, more than 23 million American children live in a single-parent household (“State Divorce Laws”). Many children have watched their parents go through a divorce. It can be very hard experience for children to go through. Some researchers have suggested that not only the divorce itself, but the tensions between the parents have a harmful impact on children. Children who experience divorce are also more likely to have social or pathological problems as they grow up.
Due to their parents having legal ownership of the child, they can decide for their child to participate in this practice, without the child’s consent. This is harmful because it means that even children of all ages can be subjects in this malpractice, if their parents decide. A landmark example of the failure of conversion therapy is the story of Kirk Murphy, a five year old victim of the practice. From a young age, Kirk exhibited behaviors that were stereotypical to women. Psychologist George Rekers prescribed that his parents take the approach of praising him when he acted stereotypically male, and ignoring, spanking, or punishing him when he exhibited feminine behavior.
• Children living in foster homes or orphanages, these children have a fear of never being adopted, because if they were not chosen in past is going to be more difficult to be adopted in the future; do not forget that when the shelters do not have space for another child what they do is get rid of an older child for a younger. • Parents who do not care for their children because they are not interested in their care and needs, which can cause a psychological or emotional disorder, because they grew up without parental affection and think that this is acceptable, then they do not show feelings to others, they are cold and may even come to have low self-esteem. We must realize that this becomes a cycle, because the child did not receive affection growing up, he will do the same with their
According to UNICEF, “ Governments should ensure that children are properly cared for, and protect them from violence, abuse and neglect by their parents, or anyone else who looks after them” (Article 19,unicef.org). In recent years, Vietnamese daycares are facing a lot of doubtful legal cases. Many of these daycares are caught in the act of hitting and persecuting small kids. The government, especially the child-care organizations also takes a part in this alarming issue. One of the first responsibilities belongs to Vietnamese Ministry of Education
Baby encounters 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 made a positive difference in Baby’s life.

Dana’s history of maltreatment, both from her birth family and foster families, may have been the cause of the lengthy list of social problems that followed. Poor outcomes are associated with children who are abused, runaway, and have a drug dependency problem. Literature has shown that children who are sexually abused as children have high risk of being a victim of commercial sexual exploitation, become addicts, and becoming pregnant as adolescents. Foster parents are supposed to protect children, yet Dana was exposed to additional abuse in out of home care. She was reunified to her parents

There are over 20,000 international adoptions into the U.S annually, but a minority of those 20,000 adoptions occurring are illegal or are sending children to an unsteady home. International adoption since the years following World War II has become a worldwide organization that aims to better the lives of children and countries all around. International adoption was set up to help children and countries in need not undermine them, which is what some individuals feel it does do now in our society.
