For example, any untreated major depression problem seriously effects any person. Unfortunately, most of the people who suffer from these mental illnesses or substance use disorder deny they have a problem. In fact, most of the time, they are the last to recognize they have a problem, and admit that they need help. Any mental illness or substance use problem which is left untreated eventually jeopardizes the patient’s safety and health, and even threaten the afflicted person’s life.
Because both Thompson and Venables had parents who had a negative influence on their lives, Thompson and Venables were unable to successfully proceed through the stages of emotional and moral development. In fact, after applying this theory to the story of James Bulger, one cannot help but feel sorry for Thompson and Venables. However, if we rely solely on Freud’s theory in this particular case, as well as many others, people fail to be able to make individual choices. For instance, not all children who grow up in neglected homes become perpetrators of criminal activities.
Therefore, such action from their youth may appear to them to be an attempt to take their lives (suicidal attempt). But in reality, it’s not the case. All they’re trying to do is to get rid of the emotional pain or fears, not their lives.

The long term affects to the children’s mental health is alarming as Time magazine stated that “The risk of depression alone was 1.4 times greater, which was the same rate for anxiety” (Rochman, 2012) also some of the other mental illnesses that are correlated with the use of physical punishment are mood and anxiety disorders, substance/alcohol abuse which can all hinder the lives of children maturing. Corporal punishment also imbeds anger into the child making them exhibit aggressive behaviors towards others in the article the case against spanking “researchers interviewed parents and children age 3 to 7 from more than 100 families. Children who were physically punished were more likely to endorse hitting as a means of resolving their conflicts with peers and siblings” (Smith, 2012, Pg. 60) this only proves that children will inherit their parent’s aggressive attitudes. The blame should be placed on parents as they are only contributing to a negative lifestyle for the growing
Anna Quindlen in the article, “The C Word in the Hallway” argues that mental illness don’t get enough awareness or help that it actually needs. Quindlen supports her argument by using similes, tone and bias’ to state that many teachers are not trained to recognize mental illness and so some just dismiss it and so that leaves “over two thirds of the mentally disturbed children without any help”. Insurance also does not aid in covering the costs because “health insurance plans do not provide coverage for necessary treatment”, or if they do then they think that they should “penalize those who need a psychiatrist instead of an oncologist”. The author's purpose in writing this was to inform people about the scary reality that many kids and teens face today and to argue that it is nothing to joke about and that it needs to be taken seriously.
Such as Feeling bad is a normal part of becoming a new mother. This statement is inaccurate because many new mothers may feel like they are not good enough, but they will usually realize it is all part of the learning process.

In most cases this is not true, children will only be taken away if there are very serious issues going on, and postpartum is for the most part very mild.
