Parents will then notice that their baby startles easily in response to any noise whether it happens to be loud or quiet. The babies appear to be unaware of their surroundings, and has extreamly poor vision at this point and extream muscle weakness with floppy limbs. Other developmental and behavioral abnormalities will be shown by this point also. However, by the two year mark, most children that suffer from this horrific disease will begin to suffer from uncontrollable seizures, they will have diminishing mental compacity amd lose any physical skills that they once had, such as sitting, crawling or even walking. Unfortuently there is yet any cure for Tay-Sachs Disease (TSD) and eventually the child will become blind, paralyzed and nonresponsive and sadly will die before their fifth birthday.
However, victims of childhood abuse often find themselves spending copious amounts of time in their own fantasy world. Children in abusive homes do not typically have the option to act on the fight or flight trauma responses. Therefore, they utilize the freeze response, and their brains enter a fantasy world as a way of detaching from their circumstances. Some children have difficulty letting go of these fantasies and accepting reality. Many victims remain plagued by this issue long after the initial physical or emotional abuse
If the player does not take the allotted amount of time off, symptoms become prolonged or worse. These symptoms include headache, sensitivity to light, memory difficulty, and difficulty concentrating (Davidson, Atkins, and Longe). These symptoms can be shortened if the player does not return in the game before being cleared to play, however parents and coaches push their kids or players to get back into the game even after a massive hit. This is bad for their brain and can affect their work in school, and can inflict neurological damage for the
Attachment issues can cause physical problems, such as failure to thrive, as well as emotional disorders like depression, failure to form attachments to caregivers, or mental-health disturbances. The more times a child is moved, the less likely he is to form secure attachments. Between 33 and 66 percent of foster-care arrangements are disrupted during the first two years, reports developmental psychologist, Brenda Jones Harden in "Safety and Stability for Foster Children," an article published in the winter 2004 issue of the journal The Future of Children. Kids with attachment issues might be distrustful and suspicious, unable to follow rules, or appear to have no sense of guilt over their behavior. Some attach too easily to any adult that try tries to care for them, but on a shallow level and to meet their basic
A study by Pears, Fisher and Bronz (2007) evaluates a program for social-emotional readiness in school for foster children. The goals of the study were to test the feasibility of the intervention by determining if the agency, caseworkers, and foster families would agree to participate, and by examining attendance rates, to obtain preliminary results of intervention effects on social competence and self-regulation (Pears, Fisher, Bronz 2007). For the intervention, 24 foster children attended 2-hrs therapeutic playgroups twice weekly for 7 weeks. Two components of social-emotional development were targeted on the study. The first was social competence involving sharing, initiating and maintaining interactions, cooperating, problem solving and recognizing emotions.
When an infant is frequently terrified, which triggers the brain to produce too many stress hormones early in life, it can cause the brain to become incapable of responding normally to stress. Later in life, the infant may become hypervigilant (always on the alert) or (emotionally flat) never happy, sad or angry (Berger, 2011). When stress is being prolonged in young children, it can stop or slow down brain development. Many young children have their frontal lobes not fully developed, this makes it difficult for their brain to respond rationally to stress. The comfort and reassurance of safety by the caregivers can help young children handle stress and stay
Children with Down’s syndrome do learn to walk, talk and be toilet trained, but in general will meet these developmental milestones later than their ordinary peers and find it difficult to form relationships. o ADHD/ADD: Children with attention deficit and/or hyperactivity face many difficulties as they grow up. As infants, those later diagnosed with ADHD are often described to have been excitable, irritable, colicky, or inconsolable. Often they are very physically active, easily distracted, and can be extremely sensitive to sights, sounds and touch, which can make traditional soothing methods seem ineffective. o Hearing impairment: Hearing is a critical part of language development, communication and learning.
Forcing these young stars to transform into someone they are not just for financial gain can have negative effects on the way that the child views themselves throughout the rest of their life. They may feel that their authentic self is not accepted or not good enough. Not being allowed to express themselves in their own way can cause confusion and distress at an early age. Young celebrities also often have little to no time for friends or fun childhood activities because of their demanding schedule and adult responsibilities. These children often feel alone and separated from the rest of society and live in a form of chaos.
Children who grow up with divorced parents have many adjustment difficulties. There is a strong impact of divorce, and understanding it helps the growing area of research. Preschool age children may specifically become belligerent or overly attached, grade school children may show new behaviors such as rejecting school (Kelly 1). Middle high school aged children may lack motivation, find negative influences, experiment sexually, or engage in self-harmful activities (Kelly 1). Other behaviors that are common are refusal to spend time with one parent, becoming overburdened with responsibilities and other behaviors likely serve to meet the child’s needs, and feeling guilty.
