I do not believe that Len 's parents thought he was having problems, or there were voices talking to him. However, I believe that Len 's mother sensed something because she had him start writing in the journal. Another thing to consider was Len 's father, who Len did not have a very good relationship with. His father was always hurting his mother physically, drank high amounts of alcohol, and liked to control the family. I believe this had something to do with why Len became an active shooter at school.
As seen in history this does not always go their way. In the deadly shootings that have occurred in high schools more than one normally pays a price for one bully that cannot get over their self, imagine that. In other cases a bully may have home problems that they bring to school and act out on others, due to the inability to seek help. One that has most recently been tossed around is a psychological disorder. Every-one involved in a shooting of any kind these days has a disorder.
The basic approach of space is structural, according to Castells. In his observations considered as the structuralist approach, Castell stated that to consider the space as an expression of social structure would signify to examine the structure of the space by the influence of the economical and political elements as well as the social practices that derive from these elements. Castells refers to the function of "consumption" in defining urban space because it is organized at higher levels of production. It considers the consumption function to be specific to the city level. In his book "City, Class, Power," he emphasizes that urban problems become increasingly a political problem, caused by the combination of the consumption means with the socialization of the production means.
I believe why he writes “why” several times is because inside he has much anger and questions why he failed in life. This could have been a method to cover his tracks and later tell the judge being guilty of insanity. After reviewing his mental health history. He’s parents took him to a “school counselor in hopes to help his son with his social communication” (“James Holmes”,2018). Homes was a shy child but got angry at his mother for moving him at a young age.
To date, there are no indications that pro-gun measures help. Quite the contrary. Recent studies one after another reveal principally that "when there are more guns, there are more deaths" (Brueck, 2018, para.7). Indeed, studies on the correlation between the availability of guns and homicides repetitively state that "in homes, cities, states, and regions in the U.S., where there are more guns, both men and women are at a higher risk for homicide, particularly firearm homicide" (HICRS, para.1). It flows from this analysis that where there are more guns on high school and college campuses, students, staff, and teachers are at a higher risk as well.
Dana’s history of maltreatment, both from her birth family and foster families, may have been the cause of the lengthy list of social problems that followed. Poor outcomes are associated with children who are abused, runaway, and have a drug dependency problem. Literature has shown that children who are sexually abused as children have high risk of being a victim of commercial sexual exploitation, become addicts, and becoming pregnant as adolescents. Foster parents are supposed to protect children, yet Dana was exposed to additional abuse in out of home care. She was reunified to her parents yet they were unable to protect her from becoming a CSEC victim.
She began drinking, sneaking out of her parent’s house, her grades began to fall, and she started getting in trouble at school. Amanda described her parents as hurt and worried during this time because they did not know what was wrong or how to help Amanda. According to Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman (2013), this time in adolescence is marked by a “need for social acceptance” that leads youths to have a kind of group mentality where they tend to act as a whole rather than as individuals (p. 341). Adolescence is a time of learning to move from this kind of social dependence to social independence. People who have reached social independence are described as “self-directed people [who] think things out for themselves and make decisions based on their personal interests” (Zastrow & Krist-Ashman, 2013, p.
Emotional neglect – “failure to provide adequate nurturing and affection to a child or the refusal or delay in ensuring that the child received the needed treatment for behavioural problems. It may also involve exposure to extreme domestic violence”. This could be seen as emotional neglect and he feels abandonment from his mother. He seems to feel that she no longer worries about him and is now more focused on her new husband. I also feel that they have failed to protect Alex from certain dangers which is shown in his fighting with one of his fellow peers at school.
According to Broderick, & Blewitt (2015) Non-normative events are events in life that are not expected and are specific to the individual. Therefore, I would consider growing up and witnessing the abuse within my home between my mother and father as a non-normative event because not everyone is a victim of abuse. Growing up and witnessing the abusive situation between my mother and father shaped my identity because young children do not have the necessary coping skills and are completely dependent on their mother and father for both physical and emotional protection. (De Young, Kenardy, Cobham, 2011).Traumatic events can be uniquely distressing for young children and place them at even greater risk of adverse psychological outcomes (De Young,
