Depending on children’s character and vulnerability, there are different degrees to which the child laborers suffer mentally and emotionally in response to the environment they are subjected to. To more precisely understand this issue, we need to look at the different research data provided. According to M. Woodhead (2004), he states that the potential mental and emotional hazards include the inability to form secure relationships, risk of criminal behaviour and development of unrealistic or uncompromising parental expectations (p.15). This proves that child labor is not a temporary complication, but rather an issue that lingers further into the lives of the victimized children. In support of M. Woodhead, a journal article provides statements and data validating the previous claims of mental consequences of child labor.
An essay on the protection of vulnerable children in Policing. There have been many failures to detect child abuse at an early stage in the past, which have affected the reputation of police in child protection practise. The discussion will include opportunities for early intervention, identifying significant harm, the paramountcy principle from the police perspective, multi-agencies, local authority and historical cases and working models linking to the scenario. Child abuse was first discovered in 1960s in the USA but was later imported into UK by the NSPCC and other social work and health professionals. Kate, W. and Adrian L. James (2007).
Children throughout the world are deprived or refused access to the simple basic requirements, such as food, clean water, medical care, and shelter. They are often sexually exploited and economically exploited for another person’s achievement. There are various international organizations and groups that have been established in order to fight all of these methods of child maltreatment, prevent abuse, and to campaigned children's rights around the world. The United Nations maintains a 'stop child abuse now' mentality, which drives this international organization to confront child maltreatment and advocate for children's rights. They have developed methods of collecting and analyzing data and information related to child abuse and neglect.
These challenges a special child faces are usually doubled. On one hand, they struggle with the symptoms and disabilities that result from the disease. On the other, they are challenged by the stereotypes and prejudice that result from misconceptions about special child. As a result of both, children with special needs are denied of the opportunities that define a quality life. there are other things such as bullying, parental neglect, social acceptability, low self esteem, community misconception and stigma that a special child has to face in his/her routine life.

• Victims may be afraid of getting the caregiver/abuser in trouble. • Victims may be unable to explain what happened because of the nature of their disability. What Makes Reporting Difficult for Caregivers? Taking the step to actually file a report can be difficult for many reasons: • Caregivers may be shocked, angered or embarrassed by what they hear or see. • Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards.
The social environment of foster care can interrupt developmental stages of children while preventing from obtaining optimum level of health. The institution of child welfare is being motivated by the intentions of protecting children from danger with the results of having unintentional increase in vulnerability of fragile population. It can be said that children in foster care in the absence of systemic interventions cannot be considered accountable to the children being responsible for their selections (MacDonald & Turner, 2005; Crosland & Dunlap,
As the child matures into an adult, these dysfunctional tendencies will often lead to law breaking and substance abuse (Mayo Clinic, 2013). It is not known what causes antisocial personality disorder but there are a number of theories that attempt to explain the origins of this disorder (Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia, 2012). Pathophysiology There are three main theories that attempt to explain where and why this disorder occurs—the psychodynamic, behavioral, and biological models. Psychodynamic theorists propose that this disorders origin begin in infancy. Infants have the need to build trust with their parents or guardians.
Child abuse occurs when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are different forms of child abuse with the most notable four being physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect (NSPCC, 2009); however Childhelp (2015) have included exploitation as a fifth form of abuse. Child neglect is rather an act of omission, the failure to provide for the child’s basic needs. Abuse often leads to a marked change in behaviour or emotional state not explained by known stressful events in a child. As a result of abuse, a child can exhibit unexplained depression, anxiety, fearfulness, aggression or withdrawal, self-harm behaviours, running away from home or, unexplained absence from school (Al Odhayani, et al., 2013).
Children often isolate themselves from family and friends, have a difficulty in trusting others, extreme anger management issues and have poor relationships. Wolfe, Zak, Wilson and Jaffe found more social problems amongst children residing in shelters than among children who had at one time in the past been resident in a shelter. The effect of the immediate turmoil may temporarily escalate child problems as observed in a shelter setting.
Abused children often have trouble having their allegations collaborated as legal and social service investigations of abuse allegations contribute to inaccurate eyewitness accounts and false memories that make it difficult for the legal system to protect these vulnerable children (Goodman, et al., 2001). Clinicians find it hard to classify abused from nonabused children due to a lack of a psychological profile for abused children (Kendall-Tackett, Williams, & Finkelhor, 1993). When there are no other witnesses to corroborate children’s accounts, investigators often employ suggestive interviewing techniques that sometimes shape children’s false memories that build the investigators’ reports (Krackow & Lynn, 2003). Some research has found that nonabused children
From the moment a child is born, he or she has basic needs for comfort and affection that should be met. Children that are not properly nurtured early in life do not form quality attachments with adults and learn that they cannot be trusted to meet the child’s needs. Reactive attachment disorder can develop when the child does not form loving, secure, and stable attachments with others, caused by inadequate or inconsistent care, maternal depression or separation, abuse, or neglect, among other things. As the child ages, this can lead to a myriad of difficulties, some examples being issues regulating emotions and behavior, a lack of cause and effect thinking, a desire to be in control, poor peer relationships, lying, and a destructive, impulsive, and manipulative nature. It is believed that children with reactive attachment disorder have the ability to form secure attachments, but this capacity has been compromised by their experiences early in life.
