Family Dynamics (Comparative Essay) Parents raise their children to either live vicariously through them or want to have them follow their own path in life. The stories "The Charmer" by Budge Wilson and "Brother Dear" by Bernice Friesen, show both ways of parenting which influences the children to go against them. Both stories show that each set of parents display conflict with their children. Although one story focuses on how parenting is not hard enough and influences the children negatively, the other story displays how the parenting is too hard and it also affects the children negatively. Each story shows sibling rivalry because of the parenting style and there is sibling rivalry because the brothers in the stories get all the attention and
Coates et al propose that the trauma led to a cross gender fantasy as a means of resolving the ensuing anxiety. Another psychosocial explanation is the effect of mother-son relationships. Stoller found that GID is often a result of distorted parent attitudes. He interviewed GID individuals and found that the majority displayed overly close mother-son relationships. Therefore, this may have led to greater female identification and confused gender identity.
Baker and Donelly described it best “negative perceptions of children with disabilities have devastating effects on social experiences” (2001, p.72). Emotions and Fragile X With these factors present along with the heightened emotional sensitivity associated with Fragile X Syndrome, many have feelings of isolation, low self – esteem and have difficulties having close friendships. Numerous social factors may complicate emotions, in that the person with Fragile X Syndrome may be excluded or discriminated due to these feelings. Tsiouris and Brown also state, “Males with Fragile X Syndrome are more shy, socially withdrawn, and less energetic than adults with intellectual disability but without Fragile X Syndrome”
1.2 The potential effects of discrimination can be physical, emotional or a combination of both. Other possible effects could include: Feeling isolated, Low self esteem, depression, fear of rejection, stress and feeling withdrawn from society These effects not only affect the individual but they can also affect that individuals family and friends too. The individual’s family can become isolated from society because they are trying to protect their loved one and will often experience verbal abuse for having a family member that is some people see as ‘different’. 1.3 Inclusive practice promotes an individual’s right to access equal opportunities. Promoting an individual’s rights in this way supports diversity.
It occurs equally in men and women, usually in early to middle adulthood (WebMD, 2012). A person who desires the acceptance of others and is also attached to another is what would be described as an individual with Dependent Personality Disorder. This individual diagnosed with this disorder would find it hard to make their own decisions, have issues accepting criticism, and have little to none self-dependency of their own. These symptoms help explain why Susan Smith may have had the ability to live a normal life because she was pleasing others, which lead to her taking the life of her children to please another man. Susan Smith thought she was being raised by two loving parents, but it turned out to be with a mother that was blind to the fact that her daughter was being abused by a man that played the part of daddy.
In the article “Just whom is this Divorce good for? By Marquart she explains, “We found that children of so- called “good” divorces often do worse even than children of unhappy low- conflict marriages. They say more often, that family life was stressful and they had to grow up to soon. They are themselves more likely to divorce and children of divorce feel like divided selves”. I would have to agree with that because I am actually going through my parents getting a divorce and when I found out I didn’t want to believe it at all I didn’t want to see my parents split up it just wasn’t right to me.
The consequences for learner are just as serious and potentially damaging, for example: • Emotional / psychological damage of being included or excluded for special treatment. This reinforces low self esteem beliefs that some learners are more likable / popular / deserving than others whilst others are there to be ignored Can keep them in a dependant position rather than encouraging them to develop coping skills of their own and to be independent Emotional / psychological damage of receiving mixed or inconsistent messages from trusted, respected, professional role models Lead to abuse or punishment by parents /
If they had low self-esteem this could mean that the child/ young person may be facing further abuse in their parenthood as they are very defenseless. If someone has been abused from a child it may mean that they could possibly never reach their full potential. This would be due to depreciation that they had faced and possibly end up making them feel powerless to take on a role which would consist of obligation. Not being able to have relationships with people in the future, making friends as a child and finding a husband/partner once in parenthood. Self-harm would make the service providers very mistrustful as the pain imposed on them by themselves is showing as the pain they are facing at some other point with someone else.
Nonetheless, for the purposes of the research, it is important to define splitting as a tendency to see things as either good or bad. Alongside projective identification, it is considered to be the most primitive defence mechanism. For instance, a child who is the victim of sexual violence inflicted by parents uses splitting and separates the experience of parents s/he depends on and loves from that of parents who are sexually abusing her/him. In that case the child retains the image of parents as good, while identifying with the bad, believing that s/he is bad and that’s why such things are happening. The splitting mechanism may be used to explain body-related feelings attested to by trafficking victims.
These sorts of stereotypes can prove harmful; they can stifle individual expression and creativity, as well as hinder personal and professional growth. The weight of scientific evidence demonstrates that children learn gender stereotypes from adults. As with gender roles, socializing agents—parents, teachers, peers, religious leaders, and the media—pass along gender stereotypes from one generation to the next. One approach to reexamining conventional gender roles and stereotypes isandrogyny, which is the blending of feminine and masculine attributes in the same individual. The androgyne, or androgynous person, does not neatly fit into a female or male gender role; she or he can comfortably express the qualities of both genders.
