Children are able to develop into adulthood hole they are seeing the responsibility their parents experience. The children brain in poverty is different from other children because they witness so much violence, housing problems and family issues. These children feel like their is no hope for the future in it can lead to not continuing. This can be extremely hard for a child to achieve success. Not only do they feel like their is not hope but they also feel like there is no going back.
Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29). Many women today with young children are forced to take care of their families as single mothers without the support of the father. These women are often too busy taking care of the children to find a job. The fact that Rosa is a Hispanic affects her ability to find a job as well. Even if she did have the time, her ethnicity and gender would be cause for discrimination.
Healthcare is a huge issue for women across the country, as maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are some of the highest in the world. These women are not even allowed to make their own healthcare decisions and instead their husbands or other male family members somehow have the right to choose for them, which is simply ridiculous. In addition, less than 5% of women have access to and use contraceptives, which is a big problem primarily because women often end up with more children than she can provide for resulting in malnutrition and deeper poverty. Especially because AIDS is so widespread in the DRC, contraceptives are crucial when it comes to women’s health. Violence against women is perhaps the worst hardship a Congolese women will face.
Physical Punishment Do you think that people might think twice about spanking and physically punishing their children if it leads to your child resenting you, not being able to trust you, or even hurt the way that they function socially and mentally for the rest of their lives? Every day parents are spanking and physically punishing their children, not knowing how it will affect their kids down the road. Some parents may wonder why their child acts out aggressively at school, why they don’t do as well academically as other students, or maybe why they don’t feel comfortable or are scared to come to you when they have made a mistake? The children who are spanked and physically punished may have psychological damage and not function well academically or socially, the relationships between parent and child are compromised by causing lack of trust and
Imagine losing everything you had, your house, your dad, and all your possessions all of that at the age of 12. Ghastly isn’t it? Well in the story, Esperanza Rising by: Pam Munoz Ryan, Esperanza had to go through all that and shift to America during the Great Depression, and even if you don’t know what that is, you probably know by the looks of it that it is not the most marvelous thing. And you would be right, it’s not. When Esperanza goes to work in America to earn money, there are strikes going on about how people don’t get paid enough for working.
Coaches, and parents are pushing students beyond limits and eventually it 's going to catch up to everybody. We need to lighten up on youth sports and realize that they are just kids. We cannot as coaches and parents expect student to be at their greatest potential every hour of everyday. Students need time for school they need time with their friends. If athletes play the same sport year round they will get burnt out and get caught in single sport specialization.
Therefore, they receive discrimination for being single mothers as well as, the simple fact that they are women. “Has had major implications for the high proportion of women working in the public sector, most of whom are employed at lower levels than men” (Leckie, 180). Again, they have to do the same job yet they are to receive a lower income. “There is also a vast array of ways in which single people are targets of “singlism”, which is when you are stereotyped, stigmatized, and discriminated against because you are single” (DePaulo). Due to all the stereotyping that occurs, people get discriminated based on their life actions such as, the choice of being a single mother or
The long term economic trends keep getting worse. These trends would continue to destroy the middles classes unless changes are made. Good jobs are replaced by low paying service jobs. At the same time, the cost of everything goes up and its difficult for American families to be able to afford things needed. Health care and tuitions are also rising and now millions of American families cannot afford it.
This statistic is very scary because poverty in the U.S is constantly getting worse. The amount of homeless families has increased, which causes their children to struggle through school and have a much harder time becoming successful in the future. Poverty affects everyone in their family and puts a lot of stress on the parents to make enough to survive. Millions of American families tend
African American women who choose this field of work were almost always undervalued, underpaid, overworked and in most cases unprotected. Some domestic workers also had to face abuse and maltreatment. The work was hard, but there was only little these employed women could do. Women depended on the low paid wages and most of the time had to accept these forms of treatment, since there were no laws for wages or working conditions in the domestic service. “It tends to be perceived as something other than regular employment, as not fitting the general framework of existing labour laws despite the fact that its origins go back to the "master-servant" relationship.” (ILO, 1).
This resulted in women being unable to advance financially in society and being dependent on their husbands. Many women were subjugated to working in factories that produced clothes, war parts, and car parts. These jobs were not very secure, were unsafe, and paid very little for long days. A family would not have been able to live off of such a small income. Although many opportunities have been spread to women of
However, there are still women in America who are underserved, and uninsured and can’t afford health care due to poverty which leads them to not having proper medical care. Underserved women in America are not able to get quality health care because of poverty, ethnicity, geography, and other reasons. These women generally need more health services due to high
But even with this new awareness, there are still black and white students who think that the fight is over. That it won’t get better than it already has so why keep trying. It makes me really question how we can break this cycle. I wonder if we could get parents to start teaching their children tolerance, acceptance and equality from birth, how different the world would look
In this essay I want to portray the message of how many veterans of war are being left to fend for themselves when they return home, and struggle to restart their lives. I want to demonstrate the fact that Veterans are suffering with economic and PTSD, and they will continue to do so until drastic changes are made. I would address the United States Government-specifically the department of domestic affairs- thus hoping to change the current situation as quickly as possible, due to the fact that the branch that this essay is directed towards have an enormous amount of power. The research I will present will be based off the plethora of U.S. census data; indicating that the problem at hand is one that the government has verified. As well as using data to support poverty, I will gather sources from other wars such as Iraq to show how this poverty among veterans has entered a domino effect.
The most shocking fact about this pay gap is that there are so many single mothers out there who need to feed, care for, and comfort their children. By only allowing women 77-80 cents on the dollar compared to men, it makes it much harder for these single
