Emotional neglect – “failure to provide adequate nurturing and affection to a child or the refusal or delay in ensuring that the child received the needed treatment for behavioural problems. It may also involve exposure to extreme domestic violence”. This could be seen as emotional neglect and he feels abandonment from his mother. He seems to feel that she no longer worries about him and is now more focused on her new husband. I also feel that they have failed to protect Alex from certain dangers which is shown in his fighting with one of his fellow peers at school.
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
The public began questing social workers regarding the deaths of many children and together they identified two main failures and weaknesses for social workers and management of administration. One of the failures according to society was that social workers were unable to identify or sport the warning signs of a child’s situation. It was believed that the social workers concentrated on working with the parents rather than protecting the child from danger, they were accused by the society to be “regarding the parents of children in care as the clients, rather than the children in their own right”(Howe, 1992 p.494). Management and administration by the welfare department was another area in which society failed to protect children, they were unable to manage and monitor the information gathered by the social workers in a sufficient manner. Findings shows that The ” in spite of there being indications that a child was not safe, there were failures to note and record, coordinate and collect such information and this produced an incomplete overall picture leading to mistakes and poor judgements” (Howe, 1992 p.495).
The reason why is because a foster care home is where kids are not wanted, and there are many there. In foster care, you are not the same as you were with your family. It makes kids change there perspective in a bad way. For example, some people say Pony boy should be sent off. The question is...What if you were in his place?
Although Wuornos life was filled with abandonment, abuse, and neglect, Bowlby (1969) asserted that the inability to bond or form attachments and, therefore, to develop empathy for others is often a result of inconsistent or lack of caring, especially during the person’s childhood. According to attachment theory, it is critical for the child to develop trust and security from the primary caregivers. Without this development, the child begins to form an internal working model of others as unreliable, untrustworthy, and unresponsive to the childs needs. Throughout Wuornos childhood, she developed secondary conditional strategies, such as hyper-vigilance and detachment, to cope with her exposure to abuse and the failure to have her needs met. Her internal working models consisted of a view of self as unlovable and wicked, and a view of others as hostile and rejecting (Shipley & Arrigo, 2004).
According to Broderick, & Blewitt (2015) Non-normative events are events in life that are not expected and are specific to the individual. Therefore, I would consider growing up and witnessing the abuse within my home between my mother and father as a non-normative event because not everyone is a victim of abuse. Growing up and witnessing the abusive situation between my mother and father shaped my identity because young children do not have the necessary coping skills and are completely dependent on their mother and father for both physical and emotional protection. (De Young, Kenardy, Cobham, 2011).Traumatic events can be uniquely distressing for young children and place them at even greater risk of adverse psychological outcomes (De Young,
Dr. Laura Schlesinger believes that daycare is in between sinister and cruel, which might be an overly emotional description, daycare is not what is best for a family or a child, but by no means is it cruel. Kids need socialization, with people their age, day care can offer that to them, which is a positive. However, daycare also lacks the discipline, and usually the care, that a parent can give, causing the overall structure of a family to fall apart. Without discipline, children become unruly and spoiled, and lack respect and cause problems where problems don’t lie. Mass shootings because a guy in college didn’t get enough attention from girls, causing kids to commit suicide because other kids are constantly bullying them online, kids
Children who aren't shown love and support go on to lead unsatisfactory lives. This causes these children to not be active citizens, thus not helping the community. This completes the circle when these people have their own children, since they didn't help improve the community, their children will have to face the same hurdles as
Baby was raised in an unstable and derelict environment, paired with the absence of familial support, which crippled her childhood development. Baby’s moral contradiction and personal integrity was fueled by the stigma she encountered from her social networks.
