CYP Core 3.1 – Understand child and young person development 2. Understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice. 2.1 Explain how children and young people development is influenced by a range of personal factors A child’s personal circumstances within a child home life can have a vital effect on a child’s development. If a child is unhappy at home this could be due to parent divorce or the child is miss treated or neglected, lack of parent support within the home to support with a child’s development or learning / play experiences.

According to Nerissa S. Bauer, “bullying is aggressive behavior marked by an imbalance of power occurring repetitively with intent to harm and can either be physical (e.g., fighting, pushing) or relational (e.g., social exclusion, spreading rumors)” (Bauer 2007). Without appropriate intervention (from the school), these negative behaviors contribute to a negative school environment, both for the children who are
Therefore in order for intervention, to prevent further abuse or neglect of the child, to take place a social worker must be satisfied that the abuse is significant and produce evidence to support this. The vague nature of thie legislation and the constraints placed upon social workers who work with families and children contributes massively to the number of children failed by the system.
There are three main factors behind the rise in child abuse. First one is the problem that the parents have. Misunderstand about the child abuse, abuse chain and parents’ psychology sometimes causes the oppression. Second one is the problem that the children have. The children who have the character that difficult to treat or some physical trouble can sometimes abused by their parents.
Analyse the factors that effect emotional and mental health of children and young people  The enhancement of positive early experiences as well as prevention methods and early intervention during childhood are critical for children growing up for their mental and emotional health but there are many factors effecting mental and emotional health in children. One of these factors is the socio-economic factors; children can be deprived of resources that would give them deprivation in experience, intellectual opportunity and meaningful human relationships beyond human survival that would contribute to emotional problems in children. Poor housing, overcrowding in the home or high unemployment of parents can also contribute to mental health problems of children. Family life breaking down is another factor influencing the emotional and mental health issues for a child. Parents divorcing can be very distressing for children and can make them feel angry, sad, powerless and abandoned.
* Ethnic beliefs and customs. * Marginalisation and exclusion. Some children/young people experience problems to learning as a result of their ethnicity, social group, race or culture. Children/young people from lower social-economic backgrounds and/or specific ethnic and social groups are more likely to underachieve and this can sometimes lead to disaffection, marginalisation by others and in some cases, exclusion from the learning environment because of an inability to behave appropriately.

This essay will include some facts and figures about abuse and the causes and effects of domestic violence. I will also look at the contributing factors to parental problems that contribute to domestic violence and child abuse and the ways that services can tackle these. In what ways are children harmed by domestic violence? There are many ways that parents can act which endanger their children, there are many parental behaviours that increase the risk of exposing their children to abuse, these were identified by Cleaver et al (1999) as being drug use, problem drinking and domestic violence. Other behaviours can include those displayed by parents with mental health issues, all of these behaviours can and do effect the level of care, often being inconsistent and unpredictable and potentially leading to the child caring for the parent (topic 15, p.47).
Family Life and Juvenile Delinquency Researchers have established that there many paths to juvenile delinquency and numerous risk factors that contribute to a youth’s opportunity to offend. The environment in which a child is raised plays a very crucial role in predicting their behaviour in adolescence and subsequent, in adulthood. Delinquency and criminal behaviour typically begin in the home and continue into society. Many modern criminologists argue that youth’s who were deprived of parental warmth and affection had weak family and social bonds and tended to develop a set of beliefs that were negative and hostile towards society (Walsh, 1991). Furthermore, child maltreatment is a consequential social problem.
