Not only do they feel like their is not hope but they also feel like there is no going back. “Lower household income and educational attainment were associated with greater amounts of negativity in mothers’ interactions with their children” (Winer, Thompson, and Davis). Parents struggle with not being able to be there for their child through there hardest time. There is less nurture in the house which can lead to depression among the child.

Many mothers find it hard to graduate high school with a new baby, much less finish college which will later lead to financial issues(Campbell 10). Maurice’s mother was often so busy taking care of her children that she was never able to further her education and make a better
Many of them have only attended school for one year or have graduated college and are unable to find employment (41). The economy does not supply adequate learning facilities or a stable environment for expecting women, single mothers, or abandoned children and pushes them to the sex industry in order to earn money and protection. Younger woman tend to travel abroad in the sex industry in the hopes of a better life in a different country. When the victims are asked why they are reluctant to leave the sex industry they answer with “the wish to survive”, “to be independent from their families”, or the need “to help the family” (41). With many children being born into poverty everyday, prostitution is viewed more as a positive lifestyle for all rather than something detrimental to their lives, it becomes more widely accepted.
I want to accomplish many thing through out my life, but the biggest accomplishment I want is to help the people who have lost or don 't have a family to take care of them. Sometimes, kids are left alone because their parents couldn 't take care of them, or they had to go find better jobs to help with their living conditions. In many places they have very bad living conditions, and the people who live there try to leave, but sometimes they can 't take every one they love and that could cause them to loose those people. Homeless people have poor living conditions because they can 't afford some place or they might be kids that can 't find anywhere to stay. Kids and adults are often left alone or kicked out of there homes.
Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29). Many women today with young children are forced to take care of their families as single mothers without the support of the father. These women are often too busy taking care of the children to find a job. The fact that Rosa is a Hispanic affects her ability to find a job as well. Even if she did have the time, her ethnicity and gender would be cause for discrimination.
One of the major challenges that I was able to discover at the clinical rotation was the financial strange on most of the families. Having a child with special education comes with financial stresses such as one patient not being able to work due to the lack of child care resources, medical bills increase and the cost of living going up. An example from my clinical experience, was there was a family of three autism brothers and sister. These children’s mother is a single mom and finical stress is present. Another struggle that was seen throughout the day was the emotional and spiritual aspects of this children.
Mothers, especially new ones, are pressured so much in their lives, because they have a child to take responsibility for. All of these presumptions may add stress that a new mother is already dealing with from learning how to take care of her baby. Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct”
It appears 2 or 3 days after the birth, to disappear after 15 days. Insomnia, anxiety, irritability, easy crying, overwhelms and fear of not being able to take care of your baby is some of its symptoms. They suffer, also, problems of self-esteem, since they do not accept their bodies and feel ugly when observing the consequences of pregnancy and childbirth in their body. Severe postpartum depression only 10% of postpartum depressions is considered serious. Severe postpartum depression appears one month after giving birth, when the mother feels unable to take care of her child.
Not soon after, she became poor and went into poverty. Teen pregnancy is a worldwide problem and needs to be addressed. Teen pregnancy is becoming more common. According to 94% of US adults,“Teen motherhood is considered ‘a bad thing for our society’” (Mollborn). This explains how unprepared teens are and how little they know about the choices they are making.
A full time working mother, Kinsley B, struggles with expenses of children and exhaustion. Children are expensive, so she can 't afford to have another child. Birth control was the way to go for her. Even though she loves children, she needs to take care of the children she has now. If Kinsley didn 't have the option for free birth control, she would end up with more children that she can afford (Kinsley B.).
