There are many more problems with the foster care system but I think that these are the main problems that should be addressed and solved. Many children that go into the system usually do not have an education by the time that they were supposed to graduate. A lot of the children drop out. This is because many of them get into trouble, drugs and many of the girls get pregnant at a very young age. H. Robed Ayasse (1995) mentioned in his article that “These problems and the transience of their home like in the foster care system can have a powerful
It is not until we temporarily lose one of our senses, perhaps our noses are bunged up or our ears fell deaf because a of heavy cold, that we start to feel on how we rely on them and how much we suffer when one or more of the senses are not working properly. Sometimes babies are born with sensory impairments and it may take some months before the defect is picked up on. Behaviour Behaviour can have a major impact on child’s development. Children who are un-cooperative, finding it difficult to concentrate, throw regular tantrums, refuse to share or take turns and generally have problems socialising will suffer in terms of development if they are not offered the support they need. Some children are naturally loud and boisterous and find it difficult to slow down and take a rest.
Homeless infants (1-12 months) are prone to infectious disease due to a lack of immunisations and little access to health care. A toddler (1-3 years) may suffer from development delays which may lead to behavioural and emotional problems in the future. The social, physical and academic aspects of children (3-12 years) will also be dramatically
Reporting of child abuse occur every ten seconds (Childhelp.org). Children who deal with abuse can develop a series of problems as they age. Parental abuse can lead children to future domestic abuse, alcoholism, depression, unintended pregnancies, liver disease and more Bad parenting, although a vicious cycle, can be resolved. It takes forming healthy habits independently, seeking for more, and acting with purpose. If you aren’t ready to take on the responsibility of child care, don’t force
This issue is associated with different negative results if left untreated, which includes the reduced self-esteem, social withdrawal, inappropriate academic performance, and suicide. The literature has suggested that the children of more than 3 three percent in the United States have been experiencing the depression, making one of the most prevalent mental health issues for the children. The higher prevalence of such issues has made the significant importance of the effective interventions in schools. Since a large number of students in their childhood and adolescence are affected by depression as well as the symptoms of depression, the majority of them do not seek intervention or have any access to it (Wei, et al., 2013; Allen-Meares, et al., 2013). Yamaguchi, et al (2013) reflected that there are many barriers at the systemic, individual, and provider influencing the aspects of individual seeks or receives the services.
They argue that India spends only a little money on public health care, insurance and pension systems, so the cost to the country is minimal. Statistical graphs are shown illustrating that advertising expenditures do not correlate with increased tobacco sales. Statistics are cited with examples in the United States, Norway, and Finland that support the argument that advertising does not increase tobacco sales. Their conclusion is that a ban on tobacco advertising does not reduce tobacco consumption
For instance, parents are unable to pay for their children medication fee when they are sick or they do not give adequate care when their children are sick. Development neglect is parents do not encourage their children to live a healthy lifestyle. Parents do not stop their child from smoking or taking drugs even they know their child is a substance abuser. It is very easy to spot neglected children. Here are some physical, behavioural and intellectual symptoms of neglected children .They tend to demonstrate poor hygiene and have very bad breath or decaying teeth.
It was stated that early play experiences set the stage for all subsequent development. He also pointed out that children who were deprived to play or who do not have opportunity to play were at increased risk for abnormal development and deviant behavior. The study prepared by Dr. Goldstein (2003) and the clinical report of the American Academy of Pediatrics (2012) supports each other in such a way that in Goldstein’s study it stated that play deprivation may lead to abnormal development and deviant behavior while in the clinical report of the AAP it states that children who live in poverty were given not enough opportunity to play thus affecting their healthy social-emotional
During the flu season, many people are susceptible to catching the flu. It doesn’t help that some people still haven’t caught on to hygiene. Even worst, these people may have kids that have gained this poor hygiene habit and have to go to school. For the parents with proficient hygiene, sending their kids during the most susceptible time to school is hellish to even fathom. Anyone who has kids knows the most important thing in the world is their kids’ safety and health.
It is interesting to note that 40% of victims of child abuse report violence in home (Unicef, 2009). The socially/legally reserved right of children to live in a safe and quiescent home environment is unfortunately not self-evident for a large number of children in modern world. An important element in analyzing the characteristics of domestic violence among children, is that besides physical punishment there are other cruel and equally damaging non-physical forms of violence which children suffer within the family environment. The most characteristic are: enduring persistent threats, insults, verbal abuse, belittling, isolation and rejection (Pinheiro, P., 2006). In addition, a substantial form of domestic abuse of children is sexual violation, either in the form of sexual harassment by their parents or relatives or in the form of forced sex within forced and early marriage, which is still a “traditional costume” in some places.
According to Dr. Shaywitz, if one parent is dyslexic then one-quarter and one-half of their children will also be dyslexic, and if one child in a family is dyslexic, chances are that almost half of the siblings are also dyslexic (qtd. in Allen). Other early indicators include delay in speaking and not being able to rhyme words. Starting in preschool or kindergarten, it includes not being able to remember sight words and having trouble learning letter names and sounds. Hopefully the teacher will notice the reading difficulties, but many times this is not the case.
The use of psychotropic medication is another important component of a foster child’s treatment plan. The medication is closely monitored to detect and negative side-effects. Interventions are a successful way to address a child’s problem and hopefully help extinguish any negative effect it has. Although these plans are an option about 50% of foster children do not receive treatment (Dashiell-Earp) The majority of past foster children are doing poorly; living below the national poverty line. Again, supporting the butterfly effect the children are not showing responsibility or a good work ethic.
