The voices of Indigenous children are unheard and purposely ignored. This is portrayed through the literature of Birdie by Tracey Lindberg and Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese. Despite both apologies from Stephen Harper and Justin Trudeau, the government system to protect First Nations children appears to have detrimental effects on the life of a child. This is proven by young children turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain, family members who abuse their children because they consume high amounts of alcohol, which has a negative impact on the child, and discriminatory behaviour by surrounding communities. To begin with, young children turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain.

Despite receiving apologies from Prime Ministers Stephen Harper and Justin Trudeau, the government system to protect First Nations families appears to have detrimental effects on the native children. This is proven by young children turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain, by family members who abuse their kids because of alcohol addictions, and the increasing discriminatory behaviour by surrounding communities. To begin with, young children are turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain.
b) The strengths and challenges that may be faced are as follow. Strengths: • Giving the autonomy to the service user/community: Both the theories provide the client or community; here children and families to utilize their self-determination and their individual power to bring change. • Sustainability: The system theory tends to fix the maladjustment between the environment and the client for a long-term whereas the strength perspective focuses on amplification of the innate strengths within client; focuses on sustainability. • Holistic approach: Both the theories show a holistic approach; they cover different aspects, traits and systems which define the client and his behavior in whole. • Social Work values: The theories embody the core social work values such as valuing the dignity and worth of our client, their self-determination and protection as the first priority.
Carter, F. Volkmar, S. Sparrow, J. Wang, C. Lord, G. Dawson, E. Fombonnie, K. Loveland, G. Mesibov and E. Schopler (1998) talk about the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales and state "The Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales evaluate children 's personal and social sufficiency in a semistructured interview with a primary caregiver. This instrument assesses four areas of adaptive behavior: Communication, Daily Living Skills, Socialization, and Motor Skills" (p. 291). These are all skills that are needed to know in order to figure out their strengths and deficits in SPAM. The Vineland Adaptive Behavior scale can help figure out a person 's strengths and/or deficits for the social category by figuring out in the interview part of communication and socialization. That will determine what they need to work on and what they already have exceeded in the social category.
In all families, child abuse does occur even though we look the children are very happy from outside. Based on the research done by Janet Curie and Erdal Tekkin (2006), among the factors for child abuse are parents with lack of parenting skills. Some caregivers or parents never learn the skills on how to raise their kids. Teen parents, for example might have unrealistic expectations about how much care small children need or parents may raise their children as the way they were raised. Alcohol and drugs abuse are the most risky factor contributing to child abuse.
Dearden & Becker (2004) identified that the responsibilities exhibited by young carers depends upon the nature of the illness, which can include physical, mental, learning or sensory disabilities. Many researchers identify general caring responsibilities to include emotional support, domestic care, both looking after the adult and other siblings (Michail and Smyth:2010) However, as Becker and Aldridge (2003) highlighted the importance of establishing whether those caring for parental mental illnesses have distinct and particular needs. Similarly, Cox and Pakenham (2014) conducted research into measurement and structure of a measure called the Young Carer of Parents Inventory (YCOPI). The results suggest that there is a considerable difference in caregiving experiences within the range of young carers who were accessed by the YCOPI-A. The research proposed will hone in on the types of specific interventions available for young carers of parental mental
Another example of why the parents of the bullies need to be held responsible for their children’s actions, “According to the sheriff, the girl 's parents are in total denial about what she did. a If you know your child is abusing drugs and you continue to provide him with a pipe and lighter, you 're contributing to the delinquency of your child." (Are felony charges the right way to wage war on bullying?). Parents even contribute not only before the bullying cases but during and after. They continuously deny and do nothing to change and get in the middle of the situation.
The effects of neglectful parents are basically all negative. A child coming from neglectful parenting “...are more likely to become engaged in delinquent behavior, as well as in early experimentation with drugs, alcohol, and sex” (Stein and Breckenridge). The physical and mental development of a child can be affected by a distant parent. A child will hold onto this throughout their childhood and into their adulthood, affecting themselves, others around them, and possibly significant people in their lives like spouses or children they
It requires effort and care. If people want to be good parents, they must take on responsibilities and they should understand importance of these responsibilities. As a result, parents have significant characteristics. For instance, parents should give love and care to their children like listening to their children and spending time together. Moreover, parents should have and teach discipline so they could be consistent and finally, if people want to be good parents, they should help their children to develop their own characters.
Epstein’s (2001) framework includes the overlapping spheres of influence focused on the three areas of family, school and community. In the article Hornby and Lafaele have chosen to adapt these three spheres of influence to become: “broader societal factors, which influence the functioning of both schools and families; parent–teacher factors; individual parent and family factors; as well as an additional focus on child factors.” (Hornby, Lafaele,
