Child abuse is a lot different today than it was in the Victorian Era, in that physical and emotional outrage is managed better now. Back in the victorian era, maltreating a youngster was an issue where kids did not have the ability to go to the counselor and talk about what was happening. One lady named Margaret had a wonderful husband, until he started demanding the woman and her youth what to do, what to wear, and made her tell her babies to straighten up, even though the innocent kids behaved wonderfully. Luckily, she received help from a hotline that dealt with delinquency, called NSPCC. "The NSPCC’s work with my children gave them the light back behind their eyes," (NSPCC, 2017).
The tiny shoes, the small clothes, and sweet little coos of joy; it’s enough to make anyone come down with baby fever. Having a child is one of the most beautiful miracles in life and one of the most primal urges. But what happens when the desire for a child goes a bit too far? From the very beginning, the governess, the narrator of The Turn of the Screw, shows a deep-seated fascination and borderline obsession for her new charges, Miles, age ten, and his sister Flora, age eight. The governess envies the fact that she does not have children of her own, due to her profession, which causes her to become obsessive and overprotective of the children.
I have lived in East Oakland my whole life. To the majority of people, the mention of East Oakland evokes thoughts of violence, shootings, and gangs. I was one of the people who believed in these stereotypes, and for a particularly long time. I was one of the people who saw Oakland as a wasteland, a place with nothing to offer me, and a place I had nothing to offer to.
Emily would have spent this crucial stage of development at the convalescent home with neither her mother nor father there to guide her through it. Although—in present day—Freud’s theories have mostly been discredited, they could have easily exacerbated the mother’s guilt while she was ironing and trying to pinpoint exactly when her daughter’ face became “closed and somber”
My lowest health sub-scale was stress-management which surprised me because I felt before-hand that I managed my stress very well. I went back and looked at some of the questions provided for that subscale and I interpreted it as stress as a whole and not just one specific stressor like college.

This part in particular shows a great characteristic of someone who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She took her time going through the observations she made and notices that her daughter is whispering with Doctor Harry only after a cycle of other thoughts. This enraged Granny Weatherall because Cornelia’s kindness and attentiveness annoyed her. Granny Weatherall thought that Cornelia, her daughter, was so tactful and good that she wanted to spank her for it and even imagined herself doing so.

“They live for the nursery” announces Lydia, frightened by the truthful thought (Bradbury 2). It is hard to admit painful truths, but Lydia manages to. She is, unfortunately, too late in her wake up call. The children already have a lot of “death thoughts” while in The Nursery(Bradbury 3).. It is sadly ironic that a place like the Nursery, meant to foster creativity, has the complete opposite effect on Wendy and Peter.

Poverty has been a consistent problem throughout history. No matter what the median income, unemployment or overall prosperity level is, there will always be people who are in a state of poverty. Despite being one of the most prosperous countries in the world, the United States is not immune to it either. In 2010 the University of Michigan’s National Poverty Center calculated that twenty-two percent of children living in the United States lived in poverty, exceeding the average fifteen percent of the overall individuals living in the United States (npc.edu). Women also are twice as likely to live in poverty then men are and even larger percentages of people living in poverty are found in minorities living in the United States.
The concept of injustice has always been something that has infuriated me, especially when experienced by juveniles. One particular example is portrayed in a documentary called When Kids Get Life, which I watched during an undergraduate juvenile delinquency course. This documentary, and the injustice it portrays, ignited my passion to stand up for unjust policies and laws against juveniles. In When Kids Get Life, produced by PBS, FRONTLINE producer Ofra Bikel traveled to Colorado in 2007 to document a story about five individuals who were sentenced to life without parole as juveniles.
