Wendy and Peter lost the respect for their parents because they didn’t discipline them. There are many more examples of
Baby encounters stigma from authority figures and classmates, further contributing to her low self-esteem. For example, after a school teacher informed Xavier’s parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home - Baby is unwelcome at his house. Lauren was Baby friend; however after witnessing Baby’s home life she humiliated and excluded Baby. Furthermore, they were many instances where the social workers and teachers could have intervened and made a positive difference in Baby’s life.
“I couldn’t plead for any rights because I didn’t have any.” (p. 72). • Society feared her sadness and teachers and social workers perpetuated the notion that she is a troubled kid. Baby said: “they are afraid of my sadness” (O’Neill, 2006, p.128). • Baby is unwelcomed at Xavier’s house after a school teacher informed his parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home.

At the age of four, Ted’s biological mother Louise moved to Washington and took Ted with her, and started a new life. “When a child fears the idea of losing someone or being separated from them constantly, those feelings can generate strong emotions of anxiety and sometimes rage in the person, often ending in violent actions (Bartol et al., 2011). Even though Ted did not have a strong bond with his grandparents, and suffered psychological abuse as well as physical abuse, with the lack of interest from his grandmother due to ongoing depression, he resented the move to Washington and became extremely angry (Leibman, 1989). This early damage may be a contributing factor to Ted Bundy not being able to trust others or form good stable relationships as a child. Frequent statements are made stating serial killers often have neurologically and psychologically damage because of their environment, (Carbajal,
According to “Jakob’s Story”, the Holocaust survivors suffered negative effects due to the fact they were abused. For example, Jakob describes the treatment the people of the Holocaust had, were that they were abused horrendously. Jakob states, “We were beaten and abused constantly.” (Blankitny ¶8).
Residential schools were indubitably gruesome and immoral acts by the federal government to assimilate the Aboriginal culture to gain power. I was very surprised to learn that 150 000 Aboriginal children were forced to attend residential schools. It is crazy to fathom that so many human beings were tortured, neglected, abused and treated wrongfully while others let it happen for decades. I also found it surprising that the government surveyed the Aboriginal communities and the number one complaint was residential schools and yet no action was taken. If the federal government never intended to listen to the Aboriginals then why did they bother spending time doing surveys in the first place?
Dawn’s case is similar to many other missing Indigenous women’s cases; they are often neglected or not taken as seriously as a missing white or wealthy person’s case. Furthermore, Dawn’s experience in a foster home after losing her father greatly impacted her future, I argue that her life would have been drastically different if she had not experienced the horrific incidents that occurred while living with the foster family. Dawn, similar to many other Indigenous people who were placed in a foster home, was treated unfairly and unethically. Since Indigenous people are not considered to be as valuable as other Canadians, they are not treated equally. Moreover, Finding Dawn tells the story of a sixteen-year-old girl who was hitchhiking along Highway 16, British Columbia, (the Yellow Highway), she was missing for years before her body was found.
The generation of children taken under these policies became known as the stolen generations. This policy was known as the Assimilation policy. Assimilation was based on the assumption of black inferiority and white superiority, which suggested that Indigenous people should “die out” through a process of natural elimination or should be put into the “white” community. The children that were taken from their families were taught to reject their heritage and to adapt into the white culture. Their names were changed and they were prohibited to speak their traditional language.
Lastly the parents have no control over their kids. For example the text says “You know how difficult Peter is about that (shutting the nursery) when I punished him a month ago by locking it for even a few hours the tantrum he threw!” This shows that the parents have no limits for their kids and their kids barely get punnished. Another example is from the text “Kids and Tech” “ Their brains (kids brains) get used too much… stimulation and in absence of these… they get anxious, restless, bored, and aggressive. In relation to this in the text The Veldt it says when the parents turn off the nursery the kids get aggressive and worry.
Another way the Canadian Government ineffectively responded to Aboriginal affairs was through the social issues the Aboriginals dealt with. One example of this would be the Sixties Scoop. Prior to the 1950’s, children were taken to residential schools, where they were forced to forget their Native culture, and were punished if they attempted to do otherwise. In the late 1950’s, people started to realize the negative impacts the residential schools had on the children, as well as their families. This led to the drastic overrepresentation of Aboriginal children in the child welfare system in the 1960’s.
Escaping Residential Schools; Racism, Alcoholism, Rates of suicide How would you feel growing up around alcoholic parents that became that way because of residential schools? How would it make you feel knowing that your parents were beaten in every which way by the canadian government? These survivors children suffer from alcoholism, racism and high rates of suicide. There are long lasting effects on not only these residential school survivors but their next generations.
It aimed to end the federal responsibility for First Nations and termination of special status. (Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, 2013). The White Paper also aimed at freeing the Indians and giving them opportunities to develop their cultures similar to other Canadians. The White Paper; however, drastically gained negative consequences from the First Nations, which made the government, withdraw it (AANDC, 2013).
The impact of the forcible removal is still affecting current generations in various ways, including poor parenting skills. Children were not the only ones affected by the Stolen Generation, the parents of the children suffered greatly. Parents that had their children taken away never recovered from their loss, and turned to suicide or alcohol to cope. Several generations were removed from the Indigenous community where cultural history and knowledge vanished on future generations. Future indigenous families suffer mental illnesses, behavioural problems and unsettled emotional grief (McIntyre and McKeich, 2009).
Critical Summary #3: First Nations Perspectives In Chapter eight of Byron Williston’s Environmental Ethics for Canadians First Nation’s perspectives are explored. The case study titled “Language, Land and the Residential Schools” begins by speaking of a public apology from former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He apologizes for the treatment of “Indians” in “Indian Residential Schools”. He highlights the initial agenda of these schools as he says that the “school system [was] to remove and isolate [Aboriginal] children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures, and to assimilate them[…]” (Williston 244).
