In this documentary, the viewers see a child that had been severely battered and abused by her father Clark Wiley, as well as being neglected by her partially blind mother Dorothy Irene Wiley struggle to find a place in the world after she is found and rescued from her abusive home. During those several years of torment Genie was deprived of educational and physical interactions which seemed to be evident at the time of her rescue seeing as she could only utter twenty words that were instilled in her when her father lacked sympathy and had outrageous burst of anger, as well as in the way she walked with her head hobbled over and her arms close to her body at all times. At the time, young Genie was transferred to a children's hospital in Los Angeles where a study took place about the Developmental Consequences of Extreme Isolation headed by psychologist
Billy is concern if this is normal in a child with her age. When I asked about Ashly’s toilet training Ashly’s mother told me that she started to train Ashly when she just turned one. She said it was very hard for Ashly and her to start that early. But, her grandparents push her to start toilet training in early age. Her mother sometimes got mad at her and spanked her when she couldn 't control her self.
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.
After a few weeks went by, she moved in with her baby’s daddy. The whole school was making fun of her and wasn’t soon after her whole community found out. She was being shamed for her pregnancy and couldn 't get a good paying job to support her new family. When she was ready to have her child, she went into debt because she couldn 't afford for the care she need for her and her child. Not soon after, she became poor and went into poverty.
For example, our upstairs bathroom has been a source of real terror for her. A couple of months ago, on her own, she took Grizwald into this tiny bathroom and used it without me or any other support. This may not sound like a lot to someone who doesn’t know Bekah, but let me tell you, this was a major breakthrough.” The goal of this literature review is to determine if there is research supporting a positive correlation between the use of CAT and improved attachment styles among children diagnosed with RAD. Due to a lack of research in CAT and the fact that most AAT involves the use of canines, it will be assumed in this paper that if canines are not mentioned in the research, the effectiveness of CAT may be equal to the effectiveness of AAT (National Service Animal Registry, 2017). Sable (2013) suggested that a relationship with a family pet, especially a dog or cat, reflects certain aspects of attachment which may result in a sense of comfort and connection to individuals.
Abandoned children constantly seek for approval and achievements, setting themselves up for failure and leading to trust issues. Babies also might develop the “abandonment syndrome” which is a psychological behavioural condition. This is a serious issue as it may result in the children thinking that they are not wanted or loved thus leading to suicide or crime.
She was psychologically unstable. Over the past four years that I have lived with her, we have moved four times. Roughly two and a half years ago we moved to North Carolina. My mother could not adjust to the foreign environment and the move incited her severe depression. Moving to North Carolina required me to leave everything and everyone I knew behind in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Another struggle that was seen throughout the day was the emotional and spiritual aspects of this children. Most of these children struggle with communication. With no communication skills, as a mentor is was hard to understand their needs. When this children would express their needs and us mentor where not able to figure out what they needed, that would have a huge impact on their emotional and spiritual aspect. One of the children, would express this emotional and spiritual aspects by throwing toys and/or hitting you with the toys.
As its name says it is an insecure type of attachment. In this kind of early attachment the mother is regularly inconsistent in her responses to the babies’ needs. The parents either tend to over react to their infant or fail to help the infant from engaging socially. Appropriate research from Siegel has shown that mothers experiencing depression and other psychological disorders tend to vent it out on the child thus resulting in excess trauma and suffering for the child. Resultantly, these infants develop a confusing situation towards attachment in adulthood.
Within many of these relationships the parents simply cannot provide enough time to their children to meet in entirety their attachment needs. Long discussed in his article disorganized attachment relationships in infants of adolescent mothers and factors that may augment positive outcomes how adolescent mothers’ due to their own young age and lack of maturity develop unclear lines of their own roles as mothers resulting in a very unorganized relationship with their child. Such disorganized relationships can result in an unreliable parent child relationship. Children of young mothers who act in this way will develop an expectation for little and far in between care. Similarly, children with incarcerated parents develop these same expectations.
In chapter one, Elizabeth D. Hutchison covers many points regarding the values and beliefs of children during their childhood. As children grow up into adolescences and adults their values often reflect on how they were raised during their childhood era. Children who suffer from neglect, shelter, abuse sexual, mental, or physical, abandonment ect... Often struggle when they enter the teenage stage and the adult hood age. Since they did not have anyone to guide them through life they often feel lost and do not know how to manage big changes that come into their life especially when a change in their life is positive. Many of these children who have suffered abuse or any issues are often placed in foster care at a young age.
Moving to school- sometimes children who move to school can cause a level of anxiety, this can affect their behaviour and relationships with others. It could lead them to lose their appetite and become be clingy towards parents. This will lead the transition to be more difficult and stressful for parents and children. And cause lack of interest and concentration at school, causing development to fall behind. Starting nursery/ changing rooms- This also becomes a stressful time for both children and parents, especially if it’s the first time the child has been left without main carer for a long period of time.
I am writing to request an intra-district transfer for my child, Adara Hansard, under the Texas Education Code, Sec. 25.0342. Adara is 14 years old, currently living at 4415 Whispering Valley Dr. and attending Anderson High in the fall for her freshman year. She has been a victim of bullying throughout her 7th and 8th grade years at Murchison from several of her peers, creating what I believe to be a toxic and unsuitable educational environment for my child that has caused her to be notably afraid of her transition into Anderson High. She struggled with acceptance from peers and the social life she cultivated at Murchison had a huge impact on her mental well-being, resulting in the need for therapy from Mandy Young, an LPC who specializes in anxiety and social skills issues of children and adolescents who have difficulty fitting in or having success at school, and later on psychiatric help resulting in depression, sleep, and anxiety medication.
In the words of Putnam, “beating kids is bad, but entirely ignoring them can be worse” (111). If a young child were to come home from school and be confronted by her parents screaming at each other, she would feel confused and hopeless. While parents not asking their daughter how her day was does not seem like a big deal, it is a necessary part of a child’s development because “cognitive stimulation by parents is essential for optimal learning” (110). Children who have parents that “talk with them frequently develop more language skills than kids whose parents rarely engage with them in conversation” (110). For this reason, if a child’s parents were severely not getting along, then they definitely would not be putting all of their energy into talking with their child and, therefore the child would have a harder time developing language skills.
The third relationship between a child and parent is the ambivalent relationship. This type of relationship means a child “may be insecurely attached to his parents.” The characteristics that come with ambivalent children are, “often very clingy, tend to act younger than they really are and may seem over-emotional, might use baby talk or act like a baby when in preschool, love being the center of attention, often cry and get frustrated easily, get upset if people aren’t paying attention to them and have a hard time doing things on their own, seem to latch onto everyone for short periods of time, and have a very hard time letting parents go at the beginning of the day as the crying may last a long time.” (Lynette C. Magaña with Judith A. Myers-Walls and Dee Love n.d.).
