Overall, this article’s purpose was to address the proposal of attachment theory as a (transactional) theory of change for foster children. Tucker and MacKenzie did this by presenting seven hypotheses – the first three presented focus on placement change and how it affects risk of exit from foster care, while the last four focus on how change affects the rates of placement change, while not focusing on child characteristics. The overarching theme within this journal was how attachment theory played a role within the effects children within foster care were experiencing change. Attachment theory and the change processes in foster presented new information regarding to age and how age affects foster children’s risk. This study proposed the risks of exit and change affecting foster children depends on the age of the children.
The use of physical punishment to discipline children is a widely accepted practice in the United States. This longstanding tradition has become commonplace all across American households. There are many reasons why people justify the use of physical punishment. Some will argue that physical punishment had no effect on them when they experienced it, so they think that it is acceptable. Others may say that it is the quickest and most effective way to discipline children.
Western Journal Of Communication, 77(4), 411-423. This study examined verbal aggressive behavior in adult romantic relationships from being exposed to familial verbal aggression in childhood and the strength of individuals’ motivation systems. History of family verbal aggression was positively associated with the perceived acceptability of verbal aggression with a romantic partner. This study will help understand aggression with parents that lead to aggression in relationships later in life. Crockett, L. J., & Randall, B.
The article I selected researched racial and ethnic disparities in ADHD diagnosis from kindergarten to eighth grade across the United States. This article best exemplifies the longitudinal Survey design through its exploration into what extent does racial and ethnic disparities play in the diagnosis of attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder also known as (ADHD) in children in early grades or middle school education. Diagnosis of any disability can have serious implications on student performance; this research emphasizes the importance of racial disparities in the diagnoses of learners in classrooms across the country. Morgan (2013) suggest minority students are dispproportional diagnosed and treated for ADHD. As such the effects of racial disparities on these learners can begin in kindergarden and have lasting effects on how people, learners, and educators arrive at understanding.
Over the course of the years, corporal punishment has been controversially spoken about whether if it’s an effective or barbaric method of discipline to raise a child. According to Elizabeth Gershoff (2010), after conducting a meta-analytic scientific research on the intended and unintended effects of corporal punishment in children she concluded that the harm from corporal punishment outweigh any benefit of immediate child compliance. The effects of corporal punishment in children are many but among them, in this essay I will solely discuss about the effects of increased aggressive behavior, mental health problems, and eroded quality of children’s relationships with their parents. Increased
The interviews and questionnaires were conducted at seven checkpoints over the course of the study. The interviews and questionnaires addressed demographic, psychiatric, and psychosocial factors, participants’ socioeconomic status, recent life changes, work history, aggressive behavior, intimate partner history, parenting practices, and stress. The study found that children exposed to intimate partner violence between their parents may be at an increased risk for experiencing trauma symptoms in future. They are more prone to practicing negative parenting rather than positive parenting with their own children. The study also found that positive parenting may moderate children’s association with intimate partner violence.
Dearden & Becker (2004) identified that the responsibilities exhibited by young carers depends upon the nature of the illness, which can include physical, mental, learning or sensory disabilities. Many researchers identify general caring responsibilities to include emotional support, domestic care, both looking after the adult and other siblings (Michail and Smyth:2010) However, as Becker and Aldridge (2003) highlighted the importance of establishing whether those caring for parental mental illnesses have distinct and particular needs. Similarly, Cox and Pakenham (2014) conducted research into measurement and structure of a measure called the Young Carer of Parents Inventory (YCOPI). The results suggest that there is a considerable difference in caregiving experiences within the range of young carers who were accessed by the YCOPI-A. The research proposed will hone in on the types of specific interventions available for young carers of parental mental
Arguing and getting into disagreements with people is something that happens to everyone, and though fighting with people isn’t ideal, there are a few ways to make the argument conclude quicker and with less damage to a friendship or relationship. There are many different healthy ways to deal with conflict, one being a happy, positive approach that Anne Frank, author of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, used. Others, like Winston Churchill, could use an approach that unifies people or brings them together so everyone can fight together and be stronger. However, there are also unhealthy ways of working through an argument, such saying that the best way to deal with conflict would be to think more with emotions than being rational. Others
