The idea of neglect is not a physical state, but a mental state like Mr. Lopez’s situation. A lot of times it is harder to deal with mental issues than physical issues. Mental problems lead to suicide just as easy as being physically beaten. The child or children may be being bullied but get no comfort because his parents may neglect him/her. The parents may neglect the child because they know it is their fault because of gay jokes or just forgetting them.
This is due to their previous experience with adults who abused or molested them. A child who has been sexually assaulted will feel insecure in the society and feel that everyone is going to hurt them. They will have a little self-possession, feel lonely and irritated. Moreover, the child can sense helpless, fear losing control and lack of respect and trust in authority. It is impossible for them to trust anyone that easily because of the past experiences that they had.
Most early teenage pregnancy can destroy a teenager’s life since they will be embarrassed to go to school, some drop out due to lack of time for education and financial constraints. This may lead to bringing up children who are deliquescent and also underdevelopment. It key for proper research to be executed and tools established to help reduce unwanted pregnancies and STDS (since the children are engaging in unsafe sex) especially within the young generation so as to prevent deviant behavior and
As grim as the idea of rape with limited to no punishment can be, it is becoming a reality. From not being taken seriously to being completely ignored, rape and sexual assault are treated as minor crimes to many people. Certain laws allow these crimes to be brushed away when in reality, rape can be fatal. The severe impact rape and sexual assault can have on a person lasts a lifetime, with no breath of fresh air or sanity. The mild consequences perpetrators face desensitizes the rest of the world and our growing society to the true horrors of rape and strengthens rape culture.
Some other victims who also have come out and talked about what happened to them all talk about the same things. Feeling hopeless, being hit with a wave of emotion after going through a period of shock, when they went to the police, and they were judged, suicidal thoughts, trying to bottle it in and not going to try to get help is one of the worst things you can do. These all were common things among rape victims. This is why resources should be widely available, allowing the victim to be able to cope with the thoughts, and receive help not only for their trauma but the empty feeling inside once it is all over, so they don’t turn to things such as self-inflicted harm, drugs, and alcohol addiction, or even suicidal actions. These all are so high of a rate in male victims because of the lack of education on this topic, validation of therapists, and little to no help resources open to the public towards male rape victims.
Third reason is that kids either think about or commits suicide. It’s hard for children to live when someone is bullying them. They hurt themselves and commit suicide. It’s sad that when parents finds their child dead and don’t understand why they kill themselves. Kids think about these things because they feel like the bully won’t leave them alone and there’s no one to talk to.
This matter has grown to be worse because everyone has an opinion. In some cases books were banned from schools because parents believed there kids should not be opened to certain topic in the stories. Another issue is students have been sent home to read books for certain classes that talk about touchy subjects. For example, religion and magic. Parents who don 't approve have tried to ban the books from the school because of the material inside them.
However, there was resistance to the integration of sexuality into school curricula. The resistance stem from deeply embedded cultural values about sexuality, intimacy, sex role appropriateness, and religiosity. Opponents of sex education often think that sexuality should only be taught within the home. Many parents, however, report that they are not comfortable or skilled at addressing sexuality with their children (DeJong, 2005). They also believe that providing information about reproductive health can increase adolescent sexual activity (Pokharel et al,
While speaking at the Children’s Justice Conference in Bellevue, Washington in 2004, Lundy also noted that offenders often stop mothers from catering to the children’s need, refusing a mum to even pick up a crying baby. Abusers also have a distorted and unreasonable understanding of the children’s maturity levels. In some cases, children develop extreme anger, guilt, self-blame and shame. This is because they feel powerless and angry as they can’t seem to understand, much less stop the violence. Some children even believe they are the cause of the turmoil going on between the parents.
We can be sure that there may be a dozen more that were hidden from the media to avoid the ‘shame’ most family members of the victims dread. It’s a perception that only girls face sexual abuse but it’s totally wrong; if men are capable of abusing girls, they are equally capable of abusing boys. The culture of Silence:
