When they sleep well, students can boost their school behavior, attendance, and grades. Students can also work better with work outside of school because of less sleep-deprivation. If these reasons don’t convince anyone against later school days that these changes are beneficial, then they should look deeper into the situation. An early school day can lead to many problems. Students can suffer from great sleep-deprivation.
Early identification of children at risk of or presenting with developmental delays or disabilities can promote prevention, minimization, treatment and intervention for disability and lessen its impact on the functioning of the child and family (Powell & Prober, 2003). However it has been found that early detection of children with developmental delay is quite poor especially early detection of children at risk for developmental delay (Roberts et al., 2008). Studies done in India show that majority of the children are referred late for interventions for developmental delay compared to western countries. Hence Paediatricians and other specialists have a key role in recognizing children who are vulnerable for developmental delays and referring them for intervention at the earliest (Sengupta, Kumar, Gupta, Anthony, & Nizamie,
11, 12 How¬ever, Post-natal depression (PND) is diagnosed in only 50% of the women with prominent symptoms during first year after delivery. On the contrary, untreated PND can cause chronic depression and interferes in mother child bonding and even to the extent of suicide as well as infanticide in rare cases.13 However, it is important to distinguish PND from the “baby blues” that occurs be¬tween three and 10 days after giving birth; and “Post¬natal psychosis” which affects one in 500 women in the first week or so after child birth.4 The present study was conducted with an objective to assess the burden of postpartum depression in a group of Indian women attending a tertiary care teaching hospital using EPDS
Postpartum depression (PPD), interferes with daily living and can take a substantial toll on the physical and mental health of mother and child. An estimated 10-15% of young mothers reported feeling depressed within a year of giving birth and these women were likely less than high school educated, non-Hispanic black, unmarried, and covered by Medicaid for the delivery (Collins, Lin, and Garikapaty, 2011). Low-income women enrolled in state Medicaid programs may be at increased risk for developing postpartum depression, which can occur up to a year after giving birth ( Kozhimannil, Adams, Soumerai, Busch, & Huskamp, 2011). Wisner, Sit, McShea, Rizzo, Zoretich,… Hanusa (2013) suggests that many low income expectant mothers in the United States
1. Introduction According to the National Centre for Child Abuse and Neglect, more than four million children in the United States are abused or mistreated every year (Rappaport 12). Over half a million children suffer serious injuries, and about 1,500 children die, making child maltreatment the leading cause of deaths from injuries in children over a year old (Institute of Medicine, 1999). Undoubtedly, this number of reported cases represents only a small portion of the total number of children who are being abused. Child abuse can occur in many situations and in many communities which across all races and socioeconomic groups.
In Conclusion, schools should start later than they usually do. It would be very beneficial for high schoolers for many reasons. A couple of those reasons are for grades, attendance, and sleep. “School timings not only affect the sleeping habits, but also the daily functioning of the body (Early)”. Not only the amount of sleep we get isn’t good, it’s bad for our body and the worse our body gets, the less we focus and the less energy we have.
I. Introduction Diarrhoeal disease is second in reasons on why children from the age of 5 and below die. This disease is responsible for the 760,000 children that die every year. Diarrhoea can last for several days and can also leave your body without the water and salts that are necessary for survival. Most people who die from diarrhoea actually die from severe dehydration.
Infertility, or the inability to conceive, is a problem of global proportions, affecting between 8 and 12 percent of couples worldwide (Etuk, 2009), In developing countries, one in four ever married women of reproductive age are infertile due to primary or secondary infertility (WHO/DHS, 2004). As a natural occurrence, infertility possesses
According to the CDC, suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among 12-19 year olds. Sleep deprivation is a serious problem that causes a wide array of problems, but we can start to solve it by pushing back school start times. In conclusion, I would like to propose a piece of legislation that requires schools to start no earlier than
Their language development is slow. Babies are often exposed to tv from their early years as a distraction and some time-off for the mother. But it has deterred mental effects on intelligence. TV is linked with slower language acquisition because TV time tends to displace conversation time between babies and adults. But not all tv is bad.
Another important cause if the Sundeen Infant Disease is low birth weight. I know and believe that low weights after a baby is born signals one that something might be wrong with the baby that was born. Weight is really important at this stage of development of a baby, therefore if a baby’s weight is less then there must just be something wrong with that baby. “Premature birth or being part of a multiple birth increases the likelihood that a baby 's brain hasn 't matured completely, so he or she has less control over such automatic processes as breathing and heart rate”. ( mayo clinic)This line enables one to understand that the loss of weight (premature birth) is similar to how since a baby has a loss in weight or is premature means that baby didn’t really have a developed brain which leads to premature brain that can not regulate the body which leads to the Sudden Death Disease.
