Divorce is a word that can be define as a disconnected relationship between a mother and father or separation of parents due to some problems happened in the family that cannot be solved. Divorce can affected the family relationship especially the children. “Divorce and separation can breed bad blood between parents and children when one partner uses the children to target the other partner.” (Amy,2008). Divorce can give some problems to the young children and teen that make them respond differently and can be solved by the parents need to take some actions that can save the children in the family. As mentioned by Carl (2011), divorce introduces a massive change into the life of a child no matter what the age.
Foster kids never really get a break until they are adopted by a loving family. Sadly, they usually are more unfortunate than lucky. Treating foster kids poorly and placing them in bad homes just to get your job done is not okay. The foster care system is failing kids badly, because they are more emotional, scared, and most have developmental issues because of what they have been through. According to many
The foster care system is not always a good choice. Even with having good intentions there are many terrible experiences. Developmental issues continue to be a problem with children in foster care. As a foster child most intentions are to have the child adopted, yet in many cases they bounce from foster home to foster home. In the article, “Developmental Issues for Young Children in Foster Care” by the committee
• Children living in foster homes or orphanages, these children have a fear of never being adopted, because if they were not chosen in past is going to be more difficult to be adopted in the future; do not forget that when the shelters do not have space for another child what they do is get rid of an older child for a younger. • Parents who do not care for their children because they are not interested in their care and needs, which can cause a psychological or emotional disorder, because they grew up without parental affection and think that this is acceptable, then they do not show feelings to others, they are cold and may even come to have low self-esteem. We must realize that this becomes a cycle, because the child did not receive affection growing up, he will do the same with their
Many children are affected by the result of divorce, whether it happened during their young age or adulthood. Witnessing parents break the relationship, living with only one parent and adjusting to going back and forth between two different household, missing one parent on every birthdays, these events shattered their lives tremendously. Divorce introduces a massive change in children life without them having an option to avoid it and realize that it would shape their psychological behavior throughout their life. Even though some children will bounce back from the pain the effects of divorce in children will present and it will persist into their adulthood. Arkowitz, H., & Lilienfeld, S.O.

It is especially the child that becomes the victim. It has been proven that children who grow up with parents who have alcohol problems often find it difficult to survive socially. These children may have had a lack of love, care and attention because the parents have not been able to give it to them. This exact topic is something that the author Dawn Nicholson chose to cover in this short story in 2013. The short story is about two brothers and their struggle with a mother who is an alcoholic.
Strict parents have many restrictions and give little freedom to their children such as they need to practice the music instrument for five hours which deprive their time to have entertainments. Children may wonder what happened if they do not follow the “rules” and against their parents which often break the parent-child relationship. (“12 pros and cons of authoritarian parenting”,2015). In order to prevent punishment, children may also refuse to tell the truth to their parents. (Miller, 2016.)
Children from separated families are more likely to suffer psychological symptoms such as dependency, low self- esteem, anxiety and depression (Di Stefano & Cyr, 2014). Children often experience ineffective or diminished parenting following divorce (Hetherington, 1999). The loss of important relationships, particularly for children of divorce can be an emotionally upsetting consequence, and Braver and O’Connell suggest that two to three years after divorce, 18-25% of children have no contact with their fathers (Braver & O’Connell, 1999). These children not only experience the breakup of their families but also the eventual loss of one parent. Avoidance of contact may however be healthy for children of violent fathers (Kelly & Johnston, 2001).
Today’s statistics of abuse can never be trusted due to the hidden abuse that is behind closed doors. Children’s eyes are empty and fearful towards everyone because they no longer have trust towards anyone (Pelzer 16). Children will have permanent scars from their parents abuse. Some might say a burn here or there is simply an accident, but research has shown that if a parent fails to
