Which leads to parents pressuring doctors to ‘fix’ their child (Perlman 1). The children being medicated are the youngest ones in their class, but they are just expected to act older than they are (Weber 2). Society has tricked people into thinking there is only one way a child should act. It is true that some children need medicine, but four out of five do not need to be (Richard 4).
Caroline Fischer • Judith Lieu (2005) the objective determine if adolescents with unilateral hearing loss (UHL) demonstrate worse language skills than their siblings with normal hearing (NH). Design: Case-control study of 12-17-year-old adolescents with UHL (20 cases) compared with sibling controls with NH (13 controls). Methods: Scores on the oral portion of the Oral and Written Language Scales (OWLS) and the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (CELF) were the primary outcome measure. Wechsler's Abbreviated Scales of Intelligence (WASI) scores were also used as an outcome measure.
If you suspect that your child has an anxiety disorder, it is important to seek an evaluation from a mental health professional that specializes in children and is trained in CBT. The use of CBT to treat children with anxiety disorders has been supported in the literature. After a 16-week protocol, children with anxiety disorder given CBT had significantly less anxiety than the wait list control. The children who received CBT no longer met the diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder and maintained that through a one year follow up. These same results have been replicated in others studies (Kendall, Flannery-Schroeder, Panichelli-Mindel, Southam-Gerow, Henin & Warman, 1997).
The study concluded that parents who had experienced corporal punishment as a child were more likely to believe it was an acceptable and in turn their children began to consider spanking as an appropriate disciplinary method (Smith, par. 15). However, some researchers disagree with the validity of these studies. Robert Larzelere, a professor at Oklahoma State University, agrees that parents should moderate their use of spanking, but indicates how “[m]ost of the cited studies do not show a casual link between physical punishment and long-term negatives effects for children” (Smith, par. 18). Gershoff agrees that all of the studies on physical punishment have some shortcomings, but explains how all the research that has been done should not be disregarded as there
In 2005, over 62% of children involved in a study done by the United States Department of Health and Human Services suffered some form of neglect by their legal guardian. 16% of children ages 0 to 3 were neglected, the highest rate in age demographics. Gender did not seem to play a major role, with 47.3% of females being neglected, and 50.7% of males being neglected. Race was also considered, and contrary to social standards, almost twice as many white children reported neglect than African American children (Child Abuse...Statistics). These statistics show that no matter the race, age or gender of a child, they can still be
Go ask Alice yourself: False Anti-Drug Propaganda. About 570,000 people die annually due to drug use, but “Alice” was not one of those numbers. The troubling controversial tales of a 15-year-old drug addict may not be as authentic as you once thought. Many have read the “diary” of a young girl 's life who ultimately lost her life due to her of curiosity of drugs, and the world around her in the late 60’s.
As there is no cure for the condition, the patient received physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, and her diabetic control was optimised prior to discharge from hospital; she made mild improvement in her symptoms. Fahr’s disease is a condition characterised by an idiopathic bilateral basal ganglia calcification. It is a rare disease with prevelance believed to be less than one in a million; most often an autosomal dominant in nature. It can
Poor and working class children are often seen as “deficit” or not as smart as the rest of the children. From common knowledge alone we should be able to understand that this is far from the truth. But for some, research needs to be put forth to prove that these poor and working class children are not stupid. Moll, Amanti, Neff & Gonzalez (2005) and Rodriguez-Brown (2010) both strive to discuss how these groups of children are intelligent, which is something we should assume of all children until proven otherwise. Rodriguez-Brown (2010) explains how Latino parents do not do any teaching of their children before they get to school.
Growing up is bad, because people are kinder and more tolerant towards children, and as people grow up, they have to worry more about doing the right thing. Innocence is bliss, and younger people don’t realize all of the negative things around them and the people trying to shelter them from bad things. However, as people grow up, they will notice more negative things and become more skeptical about the way the world works. In The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger shows that growing up is a bad thing because younger people don’t realize things that they start to notice as they grow older that will make them more skeptical about the world. Growing up is a bad thing because people do not criticize children as much, and children are more innocent
Your elderly parents and grandparents, newborn babies, your loved ones and others who may have weak immune systems, all rely upon you and everyone else the community to make the choice for vaccination. Samantha Reade was a 19-old-mum who lost her first child, Kristian to pertussis (whooping cough). At just 14 days of age, the deadly whooping cough took his life, Samantha could not do anything to save her child, he was too little to be immunised against the illness. She didn 't know where he got the disease, maybe in the hospital, maybe it was when she was pregnant. This wouldn 't have happened if people were vaccinated, families shouldn 't have to go through the fear of when they discover a disease that may kill their child, they shouldn 't have to go through the pain, grief and loss.
In a similar study, Ferguson (2012) researched the effects of head circumference, social behavior, and response latencies in young children who received morphine during the neonatal period. She found that children who received morphine had smaller head circumferences by 7% and lower body weights by 4%. Ferguson also tested short-term memory task by using a delayed matching to sample test and found that children who received morphine experienced significantly longer choice response latencies than the placebo group. The children also finished 27% less of the task than the placebo group. The results of this study also suggest long-term social behavioral consequences.
In the study conducted by Robins (1996) Deviant Children Grown Up, children 13 years old were composed three quarters of boys. Most of these youngsters were part of the clinic as a referral from juvenile court. Robins determined that Antisocial Personality Disorder is a persistent disorder that infrequently dispatches. Out of the 524 subjects, 94 individual met the criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder diagnosis in adulthood. Robins (1996) had the opportunity to interview 82 of the individuals 30 years later.
Opponents stated that false-positive results may cause parental anxiety and result in unnecessary follow-up tests and possibly unnecessary interventions (Keren et al., 2002). In 2003, Baroch’s study consisted of an evaluation of maternal stress in relation to referral rates. The study indicated maternal stress was lower than what other studies previously suggested. According to the results, less than half of the mothers felt highly worried. The better the language development, the less parental stress, and the better social development of children.
There is only five Alzheimer’s drugs approved currently, and they say it will take another twenty years to create another drug. Scientists have found many things that may of played a role in the disease such as, lifestyle,
