One concept in the video that was explored was insecure attachments. Almost all these child victims, were placed into sex slavery by their parent or family member. An example from the video would be the mother who worked in a brothel, and left her daughter unprotected to get raped. I believed that those two would have an insecure attachment style, the mother neglected the care of the daughter and left her alone to be exploited. I believe the mother displayed a disorganized insecure attachment style, her behavior was a source of disorientation & terror for her daughter. By the daughter being exploited, the daughter’s life became traumatic and chaotic. Inferring that the daughter could have difficulties with self-esteem, regulating emotions, …show more content…
These exploited children don’t get to develop the same as children who live in “normal” child’s lifestyle. The trafficked children don’t get to enjoy the same pleasures as other children, they don’t play, they don’t learn and their lives are filled with lists of things that they don’t get to do. Most children their age would be going to school, playing with friends and involved with extracurricular activities. These exploited children go from being school age children to having adult like tendencies. Some miss out on the developmental stage of being an adolescent, which I believe would lead to psychological and emotional problems in the present and future. I think the exploited children would have a hard time regulating, expressing or understanding their emotions and building & maintaining social skills. “Normal” children who are their age would be involved in play time, that play times let’s children learn and develop social skills and emotions. Those exploited children wouldn’t have the change to develop those skills, compared to other children because they need to develop survival skills. I think that children compared to the exploited children would have higher self-esteem. I think that because they would receive authentic praise, base on their merit. I think the exploited children would either not receive any praise or would receive unauthentic praise, because they people in charge of them don’t have the children’s best interest in mind. I think the trafficked children’s caregivers, wouldn’t do things to build a child’s self-esteem. I think they would do things to lower the child’s self-esteem, for a way of power of the children. I think the video gives a clear distinction of the unhealthy ways these trafficked children are
Hi chana great post on the various effects children have with incarcerated parents. I feel the video(Sesame Street Toolkit: Incarceration) was an excellent tool in addressing the many emotions children poses when a parent is incarcerated. After viewing the video I was able to gain a glimpse of the confusion and emotions children feel ,while asserting the details Coleman (Coleman,2013)touched in the textbook. As an educator it is essentials for us to approach this situation as best as we can and allow the child to sort his or her emotions while also giving the best support we can
Victims also have a hard time leaving because they believe that the abuse will stop because her partner truly loves them. Also, the victims often overlook the abuse because they believe it is a result of their significant other being upset.. Her satisfaction was to not way and for the victims to remove themselves from the situation as soon as possible and end the relationship. The visualization she left for her audience was that if the victims don’t get out, they can possibly die. Which usually comes next after months of beatings and other abuse.
After watching the video I felt very emotional and inspired by Susan’s work and passion about helping and serving women who were released from prison. I discovered how easy it is for people who have been released from prison to return to prison due to the lack of support and resources some people are able to receive. The fact the people who have drug or narcotic felonies are not able to receive food stamps or low-income housing stood out to me. This stood out because this rule is one factor of how people who have previously been incarcerated return back to prison. It surprised me how much a family member incarcerated effects a family and the impact it has on relationships.
The novel, Jasper Jones, written by Craig Silvey, is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a thirteen-year-old and his struggle to face the fact that he helped Jasper Jones, the town’s troublemaker, cover up the death of Laura Wishart. The novel, Jasper Jones has a literary quality which is visible through multiple themes and issues. Through personal context, different issues and themes such as racism, dishonesty, and physical abuse, have challenged and affiliated my personal beliefs while reading the novel. The idea of physical abuse is the most against my personal context, as I do not believe in such a thing.
I viewed Frontline a documentary series, which episode was entitled Poor Kids. The frontline personnel spent time with three children Kailey, Johnny, and Britany along with their families as they all struggle financially. We perceive a glimpse of what it is like to live below the poverty line in America through a child’s eyes. While observing the documentary, I became consciously aware that children who are considered poor or living below the poverty line were more mindful of the responsibilities of life. The children were worrisome of the lack of employment for their parents, bills, and in Britney’s case; how they would accommodate their way of living to support a new addition to the family.
“Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time” (Grace Abbott). The issue of child labor has been around for centuries. Its standing in our world has been irrevocably stained in our history and unfortunately, our present. Many great minds have assessed this horrific issue and its effect on our homes, societies, and ultimately, our world.
From the time we began talking in class about attachment styles and what they look like, I have been fairly certain about what my attachment style is. I believe I have a secure attachment style, but with ambivalent tendencies. This attachment style impacts every part of my life, especially my relationships with God and others. I consider myself a securely attached person, but my life has also produced some insecure attachment issues that I am still working through. Relational beliefs that come from my secure attachment style include the beliefs that I am worthy of love and capable of receiving love, that others are trustworthy and available to be there for me and display love.
With this evidence of higher child abuse in lower socioeconomic classes, this confirms the individual level factor idea that Clayton has. With this proven, it can lead to sex trafficking in these lower classes because according to Clayton, previous abuse will more likely lead a person down the path of sexual exploitation. Lower socioeconomic status means that financially, they are struggling. With that, it all comes down to money. Along with that come where the wealthy people of this industry fit in.
In both The Veldt and The Pedestrian it shows readers that life can be very difficult at times. As the story continues stuff happens, more advanced machines are being invented and in one story (The Veldt) the kids start to get very attached and don't care about family and work like they once did. To begin with, in The Veldt the parents gave them everything they wanted, some may say they spoiled their children. They would do anything to get what they wanted and to keep this nursery open. In one part it says ¨I sensed that you had spoiled your children more than most.
The speaker is uneducated, so the writing in the first person is readable for beginners as well as educated adults. Walker addresses the audience specifically to to create deeper imagery, where the audience can add their own experiences to the story, such as “You’ve no doubt seen those TV shows” (46). The speaker directly addresses the audience, and so anyone reading the story, whether a minority, or the majority, will be connected to the story. Purpose: Walker describes the impact of oppression on the relationship between mother and daughter, and how the oppressed view themselves.
This documentary film explores the poverty issue in America. They follow three families who are struggling with financial difficulty due to the down fall of the economy. They interview the kids from each family while allowing them to freely express their feelings about being poor. These families do not come from the infamous welfare system. They are the victims of the market crash that led to the economic recession that started in late 2000’s.
Theresa Flores’s “The Slave Across the Street,” is a personal anecdote whose main purpose is to make Americans aware of the reality of human trafficking being in the U.S. and in our neighborhoods. The book shows how even in seemingly good life situations, traffickers are able to pick out and victimize those that are vulnerable. This does not only happen in third world countries, or in inner city, low income housing. Human trafficking is apparent throughout the U.S., in all levels of socio-economic classes. By Flores telling her story, she achieves the purpose in showing a different side of human trafficking that most people do not realize it has.
It is the world’s fastest growing global crime that people are being bought, sold and smuggled for sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, bonded labour and even organ sacrifice ending up with death. The most tragic fact is 26% of the victims that are sucked into trafficking are children. In this violation of human rights’ grave, where persons have a price tag, anyone can be a victim. Human trafficking doesn’t discriminate on age, gender, race or religion. It is happening to humans, just like
As I watched the documentary “Road Beyond Abuse,” I experienced a whirlwind of emotions. From disgusted and disappointed to impressed and joyful, I felt it all. It truly disturbed me to hear about the experiences both Michael McCain and Johnnetta McSwain endured. I was disgusted that no one protected these innocent children from being verbally abused, beaten, raped, and left to fend for themselves. It was shocking to hear that these children withstood this amount of abuse from their family members until they were teenagers.
All of the speaker’s in the video open up and tell how they were bullied and that they learned that you must ignore society and love yourself. This really evokes a feeling of optimism because you here what these people went through and faced, and they were able to come out on top. The lyric “She says beauty is pain, and there is beauty in everything, what a little bit of hunger?” evokes a feeling of anger that men and women feel the need to starve themselves, so that they feel worthy. One of the speaker’s says “The things that seem like weaknesses that make you strange, when you become an adult you find that they are you greatest strengths.”
