The children’s rights website stated that, “On any given day, there are nearly 428,000 children in foster care in the United States.”() All of those children have to be reminded daily that the foster care system has a lot of problems in it. Most of these children are put in some of the most unbearable situations. The foster system has numerous problems that I think can and should be solved. This includes: children not having an education, foster parents and children not having a connection, children facing both sexual and physical abuse, financial problems, and children aging out of the system. There are many more problems with the foster care system but I think that these are the main problems that should be addressed and solved.
Other key factors associated with separation between siblings was that larger groups were often split up, if there was an age gap, between boy and girls. Another factor is that social workers did have harder times finding homes that are willing to open up to foster siblings. Waln Brown, Ph.D. stated in his analysis article, The psychological consequences of separating siblings in the foster care, “The experience of been separated from family and placed in the care of strangers leaves a bloody scab that may never quite heal.” (2017). This means that the effect of being taken out of a home is traumatic on the child let alone taking away their siblings makes the situation worse for
Teen pregnancies have become much more common with the oversexualized views of our millennial era, and often times young parents cannot handle the stress of the child. In 2013 alone, 273,105 babies were born to women aged 15–19 years. If abortion is not their number one choice, they will most likely turn to adoption, leaving the population problem still in existence. People often use the common phrase “adoption is always an option” but are unaware that there are currently “397,122 children are living without permanent families in the foster care system (Congressional Coalition On Adoption Institute, CCAI). There are too many children, and not enough eligible parents around to take care of them.
This is why youths shouldn’t play football. Some say kids should be allowed to play football even though there is risk of concussions. Youths are very susceptible to concussions so they should not be allowed to play football. The number of kids in emergency rooms because of concussions has gone up. “Between 2001 and 2009, the number of kids under 19 visiting emergency rooms for concussions each year increased by 62 percent.” (Source #1,pg.1) More evidence states that, “...Pee Wee and Pop Warner players sustain from 240 to 585 head hits per season between ages 9 and 12, a critical period of brain development.”(Source #2,pg.4) This supports the claim that kids should not be able to play football because it is very dangerous and risky.
Either Way, who wants to skip meals some days in order not to go bankrupt. Moreover, this problem has arisen recently as 29% of low-wage workers are single parents who cause more of a dilemma they have to deal with (Buren). Consequently, these single parents having to bring their children to their job and leave them to wonder as they can’t afford to spend money on childcare. Also, the average amount of money you earn on minimum wage is $15,080 which is clearly not enough. An average family that makes $54,622 a year has around $5076 left over at after taxes and all of the expenses for child care, education, food, housing, etc.
Out of the 2.5 million people who visit Planned Parenthood clinics a year, the majority are low-income women who have no other alternative. Therefore, defunding Planned Parenthood would only prevent patients, who are already struggling financially, from receiving preventative care. Politicians in congress only want to shut down these health centers because they offer access to safe and legal abortions, without considering the people it would affect the most. Politicians are not considerate of the struggle some people deal with to pay for their health care because they do not deal with the same hardships of everyday people like
There were many reasons for children to enter into the boarding schools. In some cases children were rounded up and transported to the schools without permission from their parents, some parents chose to send their children because of the lack of resources they had to care for the children, and still others thought that the education would be beneficial in the ever changing society. The reasons for sending the children were diverse. Towards the end of what is now called “The Indian Boarding school era” it was estimated that by 1931, two-thirds of Native Americans have attended a boarding school (Warne, & Lajimodiere, 2015). According to the class text book Experiencing the Lifespan (Belsky, 2013 p. 113), the purpose of parents is to promote
Informative Speech Preparation Outline I. INTRODUCTION A. Gain the audience’s attention: Koch states in the article Special Education in 2000 that 1.7 million disabled children were not able to attend public schools until IDEA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, was implemented (Koch, 2000). Transition to Thesis: A high school diploma is necessary in todays life, but many students with special needs are still facing challenges to receive theirs. B.

This schedule puts so much pressure on parents to find a good babysitter for 15 days only, then having to find another babysitter 45 days later. Parents want a good person to babysit their kids, and it puts stress on them to find a babysitter for such a short amount of time. Having a year round school can be hard for high schoolers to get a job. Many high schoolers have trouble finding jobs when they can only be in a job for a couple of weeks, before they have to go back (Morin). At the time that students reach high school, or even before kids are commonly looking for a job.
According to the State of America’s Children in the United States and Alabama 2017 Factsheets, 18 percent of the U.S.’s children were poor in 2016, and 25 percent of Alabama’s children were poor in 2016. These statistics are overwhelming due to the fact that child poverty affects all areas of their lives. Children exposed to poverty at such a young age are at a disadvantage in several areas; these children are at risk of low academic achievement, resulting in lasting negative effects. Our economy is not able to thrive if child poverty continues. Children living in poverty are also at risk of dropping out of school, being unemployed, and entering the juvenile justice system.
