Jade Mimoso 9/10/15 Argumentative Essay 1 Do you think that Juvenile Justice Centers are beneficial for troubled teens? Well, they actually aren’t beneficial at all. I don’t think that they are beneficial because, some centers don’t help the troubled teens get on track, the center doesn’t have the same educational standards as regular schooling, and most of the kids that get out are still troubled.
Health is determined by several factors, some of these including genetic inheritance, personal behaviors, access to quality healthcare, and our general external environment. In a growing variety of research, we have documented associations between social and cultural factors and health. Many Anthropologist measure these factors using two forms of analysis. Biocultural and cross-cultural. The biocultural approach: defined as, “Perspective that considers the social, ecological, and biological aspects of health and how they interact within and across populations” (Wiley & Allen p. 9).
However, the fact that neither child had a female identity goes to show that social pressure, though influential, is not everything when it comes to gender identity. Further proving this, 5 of the originally female children switched to male by the time of their last follow-up, going against the social pressures expected of them as girls. It is also worth noting that all 8 self-identified males expressed a desire to undergo gender reassignment surgery to become anatomical males (Reiner & Gearhart,
Shaheen and Jahan (2014) stressed that adolescents’ feeling of loneliness has become a significant problem which affects their welfare. Discerning a low level of support by their family, friends, or peer produces a feeling of solitary among adolescents. There is an urgent and strong need for acceptance, appreciation, and support for adolescents who are isolated, unappreciated, and unwanted. According to Boldero and Moore (1990) as cited by Shaheen and Jahan (2014) feeling of loneliness among male and female adolescents are highly prevalent compared to male and female adults.
This issue is associated with different negative results if left untreated, which includes the reduced self-esteem, social withdrawal, inappropriate academic performance, and suicide. The literature has suggested that the children of more than 3 three percent in the United States have been experiencing the depression, making one of the most prevalent mental health issues for the children. The higher prevalence of such issues has made the significant importance of the effective interventions in schools. Since a large number of students in their childhood and adolescence are affected by depression as well as the symptoms of depression, the majority of them do not seek intervention or have any access to it (Wei, et al., 2013; Allen-Meares, et al., 2013). Yamaguchi, et al (2013) reflected that there are many barriers at the systemic, individual, and provider influencing the aspects of individual seeks or receives the services.
(“Teen Depression and School Performance”, 2015) states, “There’s a clear relationship between adolescent depression and how well a teen does in school. In fact, lower grades might be the first noticeable sign of depression. Research indicates that adolescents who suffer from depression are less likely to graduate.” This simply means that an important key factor when trying to understand Depression and the negative effects it has, you can start by looking at the person's work ethics and how it affects their grades. To further this point, after conducting surveys at St. Jean De Brebeuf Catholic High School, it was evident that students who are not depressed were more likely to achieve a higher average than those who are or circled unspecified, when asked if they were depressed.
A multivariate analyses of respondents’ demographic characteristics in a longitudinal autism research, identified increasing child age and decreasing maternal age as strong predictors of non-response to a health survey questionnaire (Kalb et al 2012) Adolescents whose characteristics are associated with poor health are less likely to participate in health surveys. These characteristics include low maternal income or education; less favourable lifestyle which includes substance misuse and alcohol. in addition, young adults with young mothers; living in urban areas; low cognitive performance; and those with psychiatric illness, are less likely to participate in health survey (Kalb et, al 2012) In general, individuals of low socioeconomic status have lower response and participation rates in health surveys(Goldberg et al.
It is estimated that single parent family has a negative effect on the educational performance of children in Shang Hai. Secondly, the scores of children from single mother family and single father family will be analyzed to test the second hypothesis. The result is predicted to be that the educational performance of children from single father family is worse than that of children from single mother family in Shang Hai. And the final discussion will talk about the scores of boys and girls from single parent families which will be estimated that boys will perform worse than girls when they are from single parent
According to the 2015 Building a Grad Nation report, low-income high school students are graduating at a rate 15 percentage points behind their more affluent peers. The graduation rate is decreasing because of a problem that is affecting more and more students which is the opportunity gap. The opportunity gap is a barrier that low-income and minority students encounter when wanting to be educationally successful. The opportunity gap enlarges when students are lacking in resources, services, and experiences. This problem is mostly occurring to low-income and minorities students because they don’t have the advantages to afford the same resources as the privileged students.
Students who are habitually absent are more likely to participate in risk-taking behaviors such as substance abuse, violence, and delinquency (Kearney & Graczyk, 2013). These students are also at a higher risk for suicide attempt, teen pregnancy, and injury or illness (Kearney & Graczyk, 2013). Adolescents who miss large amounts of school are more likely to drop out of high school compared to their peers who attend school regularly (Kearney & Graczyk, 2013). Students who have high rates of attendance consistently score higher on achievement tests compared to their chronically absent peers (Epstein & Sheldon, 2002). Long-term effects of chronic absenteeism include low socioeconomic status in adulthood, social and emotional difficulties, and psychiatric disorders (Kearney & Graczyk, 2013).
Nevertheless, certain studies assert that single-mother homes yield increased negative results on children as compared with children who are raised in two-parent homes despite the economic or academic history of the adults (Thio & Taylor, 2012). This fact affirms that divorce has unfavorable consequences on the children’s lives, especially on their education. Transitions for children and teens of
The results support the possibility that the identification of LD may ne more prevalent within an RTI environment for reading. One third of students were not identified until fourth grade. For the future this could mean that teachers need to reach out to students earlier to get them the help they need before fourth grade. 9. Your critique of the study.
On one hand, prior research shows that single-mother families are characterized by erratic discipline and less supervision (Demuth, 65). Teenage mothers are more likely to become a single parent as well because teenage fathers are less likely to stick around. They also obtain less education and live in poverty. Further, the children of these teenage mothers were more likely to (1) be born prematurely and be of low birth weight (which increases the likelihood that they will develop traits like irritability and low self-control); (2) be physically abused, neglected, or abandoned; (3) be poorly supervised; (4) have trouble in school; and (5) become teenage mothers themselves (Agnew 257). All these traits lead up to delinquency but the father can contribute as well.
