Hi chana great post on the various effects children have with incarcerated parents. I feel the video(Sesame Street Toolkit: Incarceration) was an excellent tool in addressing the many emotions children poses when a parent is incarcerated. After viewing the video I was able to gain a glimpse of the confusion and emotions children feel ,while asserting the details Coleman (Coleman,2013)touched in the textbook. As an educator it is essentials for us to approach this situation as best as we can and allow the child to sort his or her emotions while also giving the best support we can
During their incarceration, Minidoka internees cleared land for large scale farming activities and produced crops and livestock for camp use and resale, constructed and repaired canals, and provided vital agricultural labor for the region. With many area men serving in the military the labor provided by the internees was invaluable. Minidoka internees were also members of the military, and Minidoka is noted for the large number of men who enlisted compared to other camps. Living in the camp was frustrating from the beginning because of the lack of resources. Internees had coal stoves and coal, but not buckets or shovels.
Granting children, the right to visit their incarcerated mothers is a contentious topic with both sides having strong claims and counterclaims. Terrance Bogans does an outstanding job in his essay, “Being Mommy Behind Bars: The Psychological Benefits of Child Visitation with Incarcerated Mothers” addressing why children should be allowed to visit their incarcerated mothers, citing many reasons and using many argumentative components. Bogans has an explicit thesis in the conclusion “Child visitation must be increased in order to alleviate the psychological strains that take place during incarceration” (15). Bogans uses this clearly stated thesis to tell his main point and to address his opposition. The author’s purpose is to convince readers that children and incarcerated mothers have a right to see each other and no one should stop that.
It’s rare for someone who was charged for murder and assault to live a normal life once let out to the real world after their experience. It was interesting to see how they act up by flooding their cells, throwing food, and spreading urine and feces on the floor is the inmate’s way to pass time. It had a great success on how their behaviors change. According to the warden, “If you punish them you can make them better, but the reality is the exact opposite happens.” Highlighting the drawbacks of solitary confinement, and how there needs to be something to change these prisoners and actually make them better.
What is the primary subject or content of the video? The primary subject of the video was the tent city jail is plenary of inmates that live life according to the credences, acts, and values of their subcultures (within the prison) as well as their own rules since they had trouble abiding by the laws set forth by society. These inmates committed or endeavored to commit malefactions kenning that their acts were against the in law. In lieu of abiding they (inmates) contravened society and were apprehended and now are accommodating time for their transgressions. Is the inmate justified in the commission of their malefactions?
Not only does Berstein call for an overall reform of this nation’s juvenile prisons, she goes as far as saying the practice of locking up youth is in need of a “more profound than incremental and partial reform” (13). The fact that Bernstein outlines the numerous failed strategies and goals of this practice with her compelling use of studies and statistics is enough to promote an audience to reject the practice of locking up youth. The statistic she shares that “four out of five juvenile parolees [will be] back behind bars within three years of release” as well as the studies she conducted on numerous instances when a guards abuse of power lead to the death of a child work to further prove her point: being that “institution[s] as intrinsically destructive as the juvenile prison” have no place in a modern society (13, 83). Bernstein refutes this false sense effectiveness further by sharing her own ideas on what she believes works as a much more humane solution to rehabilitating
Homeless Homelessness is a major key issue that has been on our island for more than a decade. It hasn’t come to the point yet that it would get solve or anything. Many of our government officials does not clearly know where they are heading due to the twist and turns that they have been. Blaming the homeless is clearly not the issue but not really having to identify that it is the government that is creating this problem to be a more bigger and heated issue. If only they set aside a time to experience what they are going through, if only they look in the bigger picture, instead of building a rail that would only help a quarter of the population, if only they were able to empathize more --- I would go on from here but it is the ‘if only’ and the ‘what if’ that could have made a difference then we, [the people] would not have to go through this controversial.
Children need to feel secure and loved and need supervision and guidance. If a parent cannot be present to care for and look after their children, it can cause the child to feel afraid and they may act out or behave in ways that they would not if the parent were living with them. Several studies have found that a significant number of children of incarcerated parents struggle with a variety of childhood problems that have long term implications for adult adjustment (Kjellstrand, 2012). Even if children visit parents in while they are incarcerated, the physical and emotional distance can become a strain on their relationship. I think more should be done to encourage courts to take families into consideration in sentencing and correctional facilities should have better resources for incarcerated parents to maintain healthy relationships with their children.
We are the products of our surroundings. If certain people or things are placed and our surroundings the adult life or a human can be changed drastically. I feel the inmate was just in his letter, and I agree with every word written within it. The inmate 's mother is just as reasonable for the inmate 's imprisonment as he is. I truly believe the way we are raising impact what we become in the future.
As I watched the documentary “Road Beyond Abuse,” I experienced a whirlwind of emotions. From disgusted and disappointed to impressed and joyful, I felt it all. It truly disturbed me to hear about the experiences both Michael McCain and Johnnetta McSwain endured. I was disgusted that no one protected these innocent children from being verbally abused, beaten, raped, and left to fend for themselves. It was shocking to hear that these children withstood this amount of abuse from their family members until they were teenagers.

I. Introduction A. P. J. O 'Rourke once said “Everybody knows how to raise children, except the people who have them” (O’Rourke, Pg.10). Parents always want their children to be better than what they used to be when they were at their age; that is why they care about every detail in their children’s life especially when it comes to behavior, obeying them and listening to their words. B. Background Information: i. People came to realize that physical punishment is a rough, atrocious, unacceptable mean of punishment that should be banned for its appalling, horrifying effects. ii. Facts about physical punishment (sources used) 1.
The video that made me think the most, was Prison Kids: Juvenile Justice in America. They interviewed many kids, parents and the government officials who worked alongside these programs. This video was the most interesting to me because you do not hear much about kids being arrested. The video goes into something that was discussed in class several times, as well as a controversial topic in society.
What aspect of the video impacted you the most? Why do you think it had the impact it did? • What impacted me most, the adult experiment. It is easy to teach a child who is still in a developmental change to treat others fairly, but seeing adult et beside themselves because the shoe was on the other
Participating in this role play was much easier to handle. Especially when it comes down to me playing in character. I learned with the first set of role plays that I am good at getting assigned a role and playing it well. I like that the scenario was picked out and it was myself and partner responsibility to make the whole role play come together playing the roles of social workers. What we did first was sat down together to figure out the family in which we had.
Throughout this course of four weeks, my perspective of child development has changed drastically in this short amount of time. This was my first class that was related to child development and there was a lot of material that was important to learn and understand. I came to this class with not much knowledge, but I am definitely leaving this class with an abundance of information that I will be able to use in my career or just in general. Discontinuous Within the process of child development, my view is based upon that is children are constantly growing through stages which is a discontinuous process.
