In the South American village of Aritama, Colombian mestizo parents often openly rejected their own children, by ignoring them, being careless, and even showing hostility. This was because mestizo children were not seen as humans, but merely property of their parents. Children were often left to die from diseases and had little to no affection, or even interaction, with their own mothers and fathers. Infants were often tossed around roughly treated without empathy. Anthropologist studying rejected Colombian Mestizo children had found that in response to the indifferent treatment, “children will roll on the floor, beat their heads against the wall, and may even break their teeth while doing so” (R. Rohner and E. Rohner 193).
The 19th century was a significant period for American literature. It was then that the Dark Romanticists started to produce their works. It was then when American writers finally decided to face the truth and uncover ambiguous past of their land. Was it really characterized by the lack of long and stormy past? Or perhaps it only seems like that on the surface, but having gone deeper and deeper it turned out America had more complex issues at that time?
Baby encounter rejection and stigma from her father, authority figures and classmates which bestow upon her little self-worth. O’Neill (2006) “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.
The 1920s, commonly referred to as the “Roaring Twenties”, is generally viewed as a time period of economic prosperity and extravagant living. However, these stereotypes were not the reality for many Americans and such illusions hid the deep cultural conflict that was bubbling beneath the surface. New, liberal ideals began to rise to the surfaces that conflicted with the traditional, conservative beliefs held by many Americans. The 1920s became a “cultural battlefield”, to quote Professor Mintz, with people clashing over such issues as immigration, alcohol, race, and evolution. A “cultural civil war” ensured as some supported the resulting “liberation” from America’s past, while others objected to the “decaying” morals that supposedly accompanied such changes.
Children who aren't shown love and support go on to lead unsatisfactory lives. This causes these children to not be active citizens, thus not helping the community. This completes the circle when these people have their own children, since they didn't help improve the community, their children will have to face the same hurdles as
Thompson was badly abused by an unknown member of staff at the care home. Mrs. Thompson was however being neglected by care professionals in which they fail in seeking medical attention for her and also fail in reporting the abuse to her Doctor. According to Mantel & Scragg (2011) physical abuse is a non- accidental that is enforced of physical force that results to pain in a person body, injury and can also cause impairment and even death. Examples of physical abuse can be hitting, slapping, pushing, punching etc. Also, neglect can be, not paying attention to a person health issues, not giving support, left an individual unsupervised, failure in providing medical care for a person.
Genie lacks the necessary agents of socialization affecting her cognitive development. Family is the primary factor of socialization which can help a developing child learn how to function in society. Extreme isolation and punishment by her father, impaired Genie’s ability to learn and master basic skills. In addition, Genie did not attend school and barely left the house preventing her from experiencing secondary socialization and peer groups. Without any interaction, Genie is unable to vocalize and displays inhuman characteristics such as clawing and spitting.
The First World War not only destroyed the traditional value of American society, but also created many young writers who were called “The Lost Generation”. Among them, some had experienced the First World War and felt tired of it; some became aware of the war indirectly and might have the illusion of the postwar society with disappointed and pessimistic emotions. The sameness of their work was to reflect the lost feeling and emotion in the postwar society of America. Among them, the most attractive are Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. I will introduce the background at that time and compare the difference between these two novels.
But, in contemporary America various obstacles destroy the relationship. Lee describes the latter. Rowshan Zamir (2000) compares Whitman with Sepehri. Innovation, personal style, freedom from rhyme and meter, new poetic diction and musicality are among the points of similarity. The author believes that the two poets employ stream of consciousness technique and that they are impressionist writers.

The Vietnam War drastically changed how Americans viewed their country. The US emerged from World War II as a world superpower and as a country where patriotism meant serving one’s country and following authority’s orders. However, in the 1960s, the discontent of many minority groups who believed that the “American Dream” was only obtainable by a select few, led to many social changes in the US. This discontent also fueled the many individuals who questioned what the US was doing fighting communism on the other side of the world. The Vietnam War divided American society at home on their views on national pride, police protection and justice, and trust in the US government, and also changed Americans view of their countries nobility.
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
The French and Indian War can be argued to have the most effect on altering the relations between Britain and the Colonies. The relationship between these two power houses began very subtle, as England followed through with a policy of salutary neglect toward the Colonies. The consequence of the war caused the Political and the Economic state of Britain to changed dramatically, causing them to act differently towards the Colonies. This made the Ideologies of the colonies change greatly. Becoming a winner of a mass of land was great to reward to Britain, but this caused them to change the way that they were going to govern, especially in North America.
The source backs up my thesis because World War 1 changed society in where there were gossip and events that change literature and the author’s life. Society became darker and there was a detachment in the American dream. People no longer care for others. Individuals began to gossip about the war and there were an decrease in mortality. Authors began to realize the conflicts and began to write about how
Neglect is a harsh thing to go through when you have no one on your side especially by the people that are supposed to help you find a loving and caring family.
