For millennia, parents have made most of their decisions with the wellbeing of their child in mind, but not all of these choices are actually beneficial for the child. With one of the most debated topics being whether or not to vaccinate your child, many new parents find themselves at a loss, not knowing who or what to believe. This indecision puts the health of the child in jeopardy, putting these infants at risk of contracting harmful diseases and infect other, weaker children unable to be vaccinated. While some claim that vaccinating children is harmful towards both the physical and mental state of children, decades of vaccine use and research has proven quite the opposite, demonstrating that vaccines are safe, effective and help contribute
I.

Autism is something that already comes in the genes of the parents and if they parents did not know anything about it, it could of been in their past history there great grandmothers or great grand fathers but vaccine does not cause disabilities and it especially does not expose autism tpo your
When someone decides that they don’t want to vaccinate their children, they do not only endanger their child, they endanger the people around them. Because a vaccine only works 95% of the time, those people in the 5% can contract the disease from the people who did not get the vaccine. Which is why vaccinations should be controlled by the government, and not the parents. When irresponsible parents decide their child cannot and should not be vaccinated, they put all the people around them at risk of sickness and even
Sadly even more children are abused than actually reported, “research has revealed alarming rates of abuse in foster care. One independent study after another has found abuse in one-quarter to one-third of foster homes, and the rate in group homes and institutions is even higher. And for reasons related to study methodology...even those figures almost certainly are underestimates” (Richard Wexler). According to Wexler a majority of figures addressing the number of children abused are put together by the child welfare agencies. Which means that to make their programs look better they have a tendency to overlook warning signs of abuse within a youth’s foster
Mental health is a big problem in the United States and their needs to be programs and organizations to help the mentally ill. Society has turned a blind eye to the mentally ill and do not care for them that much, which makes the mentally ill feel unwanted. Mentally ill people need outlets that act like family to them so that they feel wanted. Although the 21st Century Cures Act, was passed to help mental ill people it has not done enough. We need to have more programs and facilities to help mentally ill people and educate the schools and the public about mental illness. We also need to monitor and check in with the mental ill to see if they are going down the wrong path or right path in life.
Hence, that medicating children is not the best choice there are other options like changing diets and have behavioral therapy (Sanford 1). Children should not be allowed to take prescribed medications due to how it impacts their mental state, body, and relationships with others. There is one reliable research that has been conducted to show how drugs like Ritalin affects a child in their early years (Shirley 1). With all this in mind, should the world’s children be
Chemotherapy is the most common treatment for leukaemia patients; this process is often used to remove their bodies of the infected cells so that normal blood cell production can be restored. This is what sends the disease into remission but if this method fails we turn to the stem cell transplant which gives the patient a bigger and better shot at a full and speedy recovery. Cord blood stem cells are less likely due to reject a transfusion, this is due to the fact that there will be a better chance of a perfect match between the patient and the cord blood because the stem cells are still immature. Cord blood stem cells have been utilised successfully to treat more than seventy different diseases such as cancers, blood disorders and immune deficiencies. Doctors recommend that patients do not use their own stem cells to treat or fight off a disease as their body could be producing the wrong stem cells that will complicate things and have the same defect on the body.
Particularly, fluoxetine (Prozac) and sertraline (Zoloft) are approved by the FDA for children age 7 (4). Secondly, special educational programs are also useful when it comes to treating ASD. Because ASD affects people’s minds, special education programs must be used to teach them how to interact, communicate and work. Hopefully that would help them to acquire good jobs in the future. The third treatment that has been used a lot is behavioral therapy, and usually there are no real attempts for this therapy even with its great effectiveness.
“… some therapists convinced patients they had been molested or abused as children because of hypnotically induced memories, which often had no evidence to support them. As a result, many innocent people were wrongly accused of abuse in hundreds of court cases” (Smith). Memories can be highly suggestable, so the use of hypnosis with memory is never going to be an exact science. If, for example, one is under hypnosis and is asked a leading question about a memory, fictional or not, their memories may become altered to fit the scenario described. People are often unsettlingly confident in these hypnotically-induced memories (Lilienfeld et al.
