Carroll’s finding of the children who reported higher measures of parental warmth and feeling of love in their childhood had a lower possibility of multisystem health risks. (Judith E. Carroll cited by LaBier, 2014). LaBier has gathered many other researchers’ finding of the adversity of childhood experiences to show the significant impact and provided the way to avoid the children experiencing adversity of childhood. It is important for the parents and psychologists to know the childhood development during these days. LaBier concluded that “I think the upshot of this and other findings is that they provide more empirical confirmation that everything is connected in our lives (2014)”.
Institutionalisation can also severely affect a child’s development, but this can sometimes be recovered when the child is adopted. The child’s physical features like height, weight and head circumference can suffer during this time. Also, cognitively a child’s IQ can be off a normal range if adopted around their 3rd birthday but when it comes to school performance the cognitive performance can lag cognitive competence. Also, when it comes to emotional development, a study of Romanian adoptees demonstrated that attachment was affected if the child wasn’t adopted before they were 12 months old compared to secure attachments likely to be achieved before then, but babies adopted under 6 months showed normal attachment patterns during early childhood. Therefore, a child is more likely to be curious and explore the environment should there be a haven to return to which is given by the primary caregiver and by allow the child to do this, they will develop
He or she will have the ability to produce tears, which is a quieter and calmer signal of distress until it develops later when the infant’s nervous system matures a few months after birth. Infant tears, in fact, elicited a stronger response than adult tears, researchers recently discovered in a new study published in Social Neuroscience. Infant tears vs. adult tears The report said that the sight of infant tears activates brain regions related to visual processing and pain perception. It would enable a caregiver to understand the child’s distress and try to relieve it, Ad Vingershoets, a leading researcher on tears and a professor of clinical psychology at Tilburg University in The Netherlands, said. To test their theory, the scientists had images of adults and infants, with and without tears, which appeared either as moving away or toward the participants.
There must beadequate literature review to support the study. Literature review provides a solid basis for the new study. Consent of the parents of the babies must also present because we must protect the rights of our subjects even though they are still babies. As a reader, I can say that this study will contribute an early diagnosis and treatment of neonatal sepsis. The method of selecting the sample was not clearly presented in the study.
In contrast with this, a journal written by Paul Amato, “Father-Child Relations, Mother-Child Relations and Offspring Psychological Well-being in Early Adulthood”, says that teenagers who feel emotionally close to their fathers tend to be happier and more satisfied in life, regardless of their feelings towards their mothers. However, children and adolescents who do feel close to the father following a divorce experience better outcomes (Amato, 2012). Children from divorced families receive less emotional support from their fathers than children from intact families. Divorced fathers are less nurturing, and more likely to drift away from younger children if denied legal custody at the time of the divorce. Nonresident fathers also have considerably less opportunity to influence their children's attitudes and behavior, a reality of which other studies about this topic already
Newborn screening is a public health program designed to screen infants shortly after birth for a list of conditions that are treatable, but not clinically evident in the newborn period. Apprised consent defined The purpose of obtaining apprised consent is to verify that patients have been primarily apprised of available treatment options including their potential perils. This denotes that the patient understands each option and can make a decision in accordance with their acceptable quality of life. The Controversy is Newborn screening should not require apprised consent The medical provider must disclose information on the treatment, test, or procedure in question, including the expected benefits and peril, and the likelihood (or probability)
Of all the branches of modern medicine, vaccinology can claim to be the one that has contributed most to the spectacular increase in life expectancy in the last two centuries. Currently, it is estimated that immunization saves the lives of 3 million children a year but 2 million more lives could be saved by existing vaccines. The Science Behind Why Vaccines Help Some scientists estimated the population-wide benefits of routinely vaccinating US children against influenza. Vaccination of 20% of children would reduce the total number of influenza cases in the US by 46%; 80% coverage would reduce the total number of cases by 91%. Similar reductions were estimated to occur in influenza-related mortality and economic costs.
More babies were born after the war than ever before just in 1946 alone 3.4 million babies were born, and begun the so called “baby boom.” Couples after the war had children to make up for the lost time, and the economic prosperity of America at the time. At the same time the suburban boom occurred with families moving out of the cities into surrounding areas. Year after year more and more babies were born with the numbers rising every year until over 4 million babies a year were born; until 1964 when the birth rate started to decline, and ending the baby boom generation. By the end of 1964 baby boomers made over 40% of America’s population.
INTRODUCTION Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a structural abnormality of heart that presents at birth with high fatality rate. The incidence of CHD ranges between 8 and 10 per 1000 live births. In Indonesia, it is estimated that 40,000 babies are affected with CHD.1 However, the development of the diagnostic tool, medication, non-surgical and surgical intervention in the last 40 years have increased the life-expectancy of neonates with CHD in critical condition.2 Mitchell et al (1971) define CHD as an abnormality in the functional macroscopic structure of the heart or large intrathoracic blood vessels.3 Two common types of CHD are cyanotic and non-cyanotic, in which both have different signs, symptoms, and management.1 In certain types
In non-identical twins, the chances decrease to 0-24%. When one child has autism, the chance of a non-twin sibling having it as well is only 2-8%.The term spectrum refers to the wide range of symptoms, skills and level of impairment, or disability, that children with ASD can have. Some children are mildly impaired by their symptoms but others are severely disabled (National Institute of Mental Health, 2011). Autism has increased dramatically within the past years. More children are being diagnosed each year due to increased awareness and diagnosis that have been made.
About 90% of the abortions occur in the first trimester. Since the legalization, the fatalities are still high compared to the 80s. By 2011, there were more than 1,023 facilities with permission to do so. Some of the contraceptives are not effective thus one ended up conceiving (Biggs, et al.
As Hoefer states, an issue may be described as a condition that should and can be modified. The foster care system should be modified and have been modified multiple times. From the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980 to the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 and then to the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008, they all expand on trying to reunite children with their parents or relative (Freundlich, 2010). However, what happens when that cannot be accomplished? Then finding acceptable foster homes is next.
