Things change: people change. Every bad situation in this life comes around to haunt one another in a manner of injustice. In many cases juveniles have been treated in a cruel way due to their actions. Young teens contribute to poor behavior when growing up, since they are mostly not aware of the consequences in a negligent situation a numerous amount of them tend to behave in an unusual way. Considering the fact that every teen grows in a different environment, it is unfair for all teenagers to have the same sentence when they commit crimes.
This is the second deadliest mass shooting in the United States. The Virginia Tech massacre. This shows what happens when a mental illness can lead to youth violence. It all started in 2005, when Seung Hui Cho was ordered by a judge to seek outpatient care after making suicidal remarks to college roommates. Seung was a senior at Virginia Tech University.
A student having guns on campus could enact on killing innocent students. Guns shouldn’t be permitted for students on college campuses. In fact, students may have the intentions to harm. Some students would be irresponsible with the use of a gun. For instance, at the University of Georgia an argument escalated then the student pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and started firing shots (Reindl, Cocco, 7).
These acts of violence make school a place of fear rather than a place of safety. When did school become a place to worry and feel unsafe? Not only that but this event is a vicious cycle and as of right now it is unable to be contained. The news stories on the media of these events may be aimed to show people how tragic they are, but the shooters take the news stories as inspirations and school shootings continue to be on the rise. These stories not only feed into the shooters, but they also play a part in the fear that takes a toll on children across the
Quite a lot of the shooters “experience rejection all the time,” said Katherine Newman. If they do experience rejection they do this to reach out to bring attention to their problem/problems. Students that bring guns to school and threaten or kill other students could experience this or bullying. They could bring a gun to scare the bully so they can’t bully them anymore. But, the main reason why people do this is because they want to get back at those how had hurt them before.
To this, her father-in-law said that “she must have done something that is why he must have hit her”. Also her mother-in-law said that, “even we were abused by our husbands, a female has to bear all this in her marriage”. So, we can derive here that the client’s husband was brought up in such an environment where he saw his mother getting beaten up by his father. Also, many of the child’s temperament and dispositions are formed by his parent’s behaviour towards each other and the family members. For instance, a client who also complained of physical violence said that her 4 year old child doesn’t like her father and says that he will hit him (his father) and his father hits the client.
There is a cycle of the negative actions that cause his father to get drunk, however, his father feelings has been expressed by actions not words. For example, the says “you beat time on my head” meaning the how rough the father has been hitting him (Roethke 968). The narrator makes it same to make it fit with the meter of the music to be disguised. Dancing of the music which seems to be more of a beating to the narrator that says “at every step you missed/ my right ear scraped a buckle” (Roethke 969). As he is dancing with the narrator the father would hit him if he messes up.
It is human nature that step parents have a hard time expressing love or showing salacity towards children who are not biologically theirs or related to them, and it is also understandable that residing in a home with children who are not biologically yours, to help raise can be very frustrating and challenging. With that said, I support Daly and Wilson’s view on their article “Violence against Stepchildren”. However, that doesn’t mean that stepparents are solely responsible for the high rate of abuse shown towards stepchildren. Research by Richard J. Gelles and John W. Harrop shows that single parents are also highly responsible for violence towards their children. I agree that children who grow up in single parent/stepparent families are at greater risk for child abuse and violence more so, then if they were residing in a two-parent, nuclear, biological family environment.
Introduction: Fathers play a significant role in shaping the lives of their children and serving as models of how a man is supposed to play the fatherhood role. However, for many first time fathers this role may prove to be rather intimidating and difficult to fulfil, especially if they are absent during their children’s first stages of development. Hence, it is of outmost significance for this paper to investigate the effects of absent fathers in their children lives. Moreover, pertinent to the study is the experiences of first time fathers to find out how they perceive their roles in developing emotional relationships with their children and the opportunities
Most children today see their parents as a role model and wish to be just like them. In the act of becoming like them, these kids inherit all of their parents bad habits as their own affecting them in the way that creates a negative foundation on that child's life. Child abuse, which occurs more often than popularly thought, causes long lasting scarring to a child physically and mentally. Abuse happens in more than one way. A parents negative influence such as, bad habits, may cause their children to be exposed to a inappropriate lifestyle.
