Lead In: Cultural conflict in a family can lead to many events that can affect a child’s life. The child may become confused on what life to live or how to live it, especially when their goal is to ultimately make their parents proud. The child will also have a hard time growing up as he or she tries to figure out what path to choose regarding culture. Cultural conflict though, can make a person become stronger and give them a sense of being their own person II. Introduction Paragraph 2 Overview and Background In the novel Bless Me, Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya, it deals with the protagonist Antonio Marez, having to go through cultural conflict.
One rationale could be the fact that self-esteem is affected by a miscellany of other related environmental factors. These may include bullying, trauma, society and media, belief systems, academic challenges, as well as disapproving authority figures (Lachmann, 2013). Since the young adult stage is a transitional period, many may experience an overwhelming amount of stress due to the need for readjustment and adaptation. Perceptions of whether they can or cannot face the responsibilities and obligations placed on them will thus affect their self-esteem. Moreover, from post-adolescence to midlife, that is, the phase which encompasses the young adult stage, a general increase in self-esteem is observed (Wagner, Ludtke, Jonkmann, & Trautwein, 2013); so even if frequent levels of corporal punishment in childhood did, in fact, reduce one’s self-esteem, this effect is counteracted and cancelled off when they reach young adulthood.
It is theorized that the more resources a partner brings to the relationship, the more power he or she has, but it is less likely the partner will resort to violence. However, if his or her power is threatened by a partner’s education or job, violence may be used to reestablish dominance. Resource theory is similar to intimate terrorism (Arthur 149). Arthur has hypothesized that, “As levels of education, labor force, participation, and access to political roles for women increase, domestic violence will increase” (149). This has been hypothesized because men will feel threatened by the power of women and retaliate (Arthur
Because of these constructs, an individual can and may suffer from psychological and emotional distress. The broad-spectrum term for negative emotions that affect a person’s working level is called psychological distress. It can lead to pessimistic approach in every aspect as well as in self.

One reason that may cause the psychological distress of men is gender role conflict.
Due to their not fitting in, the child could be ostracized and be deemed an outcast. A major part that contributes to social anxiety is the way one's peers react to and treat them. "…A review of the literature leads to the conclusion that individuals with the most severe forms of craniofacial deformities are at greater risk for experiencing social and psychological stress…" (Pruzinsky, 1992). The appearance of this social and psychological stress explains, in part, why a child may feel anxious while being seen in public: those around cannot fathom someone looking different, and thus they are quick to make assumptions about the child's character or personality. In most cases, teenagers and adolescents have the worst experience when they are deformed or handicapped.
Family expectations: these are pressures exerted on children by parents in order for them to live the way parents want them to. As we all know, pressure makes diamonds, however, it is also the leading cause of teenage stress. Leading cause of my stress. Expectations are the constant hunger and thirst for children to be the best they can, usually imposed by the society and later plagiarized by parents. They may seem harmless at first but in the scenario of mine and many other families, expectations are a way of torturing young souls and minds.
siblings position, which is the effect of sibling position in terms of overall growth( mentally and physically) and attitude, family projection process which is the transfer of emotional issues from father or mother to child etc.. In this case, Sinead’s problem should not be looked at as her own issue but instead an issue that may have been projected upon her by her family who seems to have set very high standards. Next I also looked into attachment theory and I have learned that problems with attachment at an early stage, such as disorganised attachment where the child is confused or disorientated about their relationship with their parents, could lead to immense stress upon the child. Hence the child, in this case Sinead, may want to find connection and comfort with other sources. Sinead may develop an unsafe obsession with certain celebrities or models that appeal to her and this could result in an obsession with losing weight, working out and achieving the same beauty as her obsession.
In several situations, it could be attributed to factors like imbalances and changes in the hormonal levels, genetics or other such stimulants for which a medical and family history would become required. In other situations, it might not be possible to understand and analyse the cause for the condition to have developed in the first place. Major social causes for depression among youth include the following: Competition - Competition as a value is ingrained into all of us right from our childhood. The underlying belief that emerging victorious from the fray displays strength while coming up short only proves weakness often adversely affects individuals leading to depression. Peer Pressure – The pressure to conform and obtain approval from one’s social group can lead to individuals feeling confused and at odds with themselves.
What Causes Sibling Rivalry? Ever heard the saying, “It’s normal for siblings to fight?” If it’s so normal, what leads to the argument? Sibling rivalries all depend on how children are raised and how they develop. Personal beliefs and opinions between siblings are one factor, nut how a parent treats their child is even bigger. Sibling rivalries form because of unequal attention from parents between siblings, overwhelming amounts of jealousy of each sibling, and the development process and age of each sibling.
Referring to ecological systems theory (in Chapter One), explain why parents of children with genetic disorders often experience increased stress. What factors, within and beyond the family, can help these parents support their children’s development? Be sure to include in your response information from the textbook or other psychology-specific sources. Parents of children with genetic disorders often experience increased stress because, based on Urie Bronfenbrenners’ ecological system theory, a child’s social and physical attributes and capacities can affect adult’s behavior, (Berk, L., 2014). According to this theory, parents of a child with a genetic disorder are more likely to be more impatient because of the behavior the child may have.
