To understand the post-divorce family you must begin with the consequences it has on family, but for many reasons America’s greatest concern is that of the children. Children are not responsible, but yet reap all of the emotional pains of a divorce. Amato and Thompson (1999) informs us that: The increased expenses and lowered living standards following divorce may create many more specific pressures for children. The family may have to move to a less expensive house or apartment; children may have to change schools; contact with friends in a neighborhood or school may be lost as a result of these changes; the residential parent may have to begin working or work longer hours; children may have to be placed in child
The vaccine is the first of its kind to build immunity against two strains of HPV, which lead to 70% of cervical cancer cases in the United States. Merck was on a roll until parents, who were being threatened with state mandates forcing their little girls to get three doses started. Gardasil vaccine is perhaps one of the most controversial vaccines to date. (Lopes) Let’s not forget that Merck is the same company that brought us Vioxx, and knew or should
On top of the expenses of the adoption process, once one actually receives their child, they will have the expense of caring of the child. The process is so expensive that it prohibits many families from even starting the process. Many adoptive parents start with an adoption agency which can sometimes speed the process up, however that will cost quite a but more. Those who do not work directly with an agency still have to pay for paperwork and social workers to do the homestudy and background checks. No matter what way you decide to go into the process, it is going to cost thousands.
Educators and parents must address this problem as early as preschool (O’Rourke, 2008). Morine (2009) stated that adults should teach conflict resolution sills to help children manage relationships. Anthony and Lindert (2010) explained that observing, connecting, guiding, and supporting children experiencing relational aggression may be useful for adults who are helping children navigate relational aggression. Additionally, educators should empower bystanders to intervene when they witness bullying behaviors. Children must know that it is important for them to help when their peers are being bullied (Swearer, Turner, Givens, & Pollack, 2008).
One of the tests is an Autism Diagnostic Interview. That’s when the parents of the child who has been told to have the evaluation done to them. They hold an interview with the parents of the individual. Another evaluation we use is the Childhood Autism Rating Scale. This is an evaluation used to test the child’s autism is severe or moderate.
Divorce affects each member of the family which children experience it differently. Parents should sit down with their children and discuss the situation, but not going into detail, that would give mixed feelings towards the parent that is in fault. Even though parents are getting a divorce, they still are the most important people in a child’s life. Children tend to feel lonely, depressed, and rejected because of the situation. Children’s emotions, feelings, and how they cope with depends on how the parents display their coping skills (Lewis, 1999).
Another form of loss involves changes associated with the transitions in our lives, for example, physical health as well as mental health. Another form of loss involves loss of independence and changes in financial security. In spite of the types of losses each of these life events can trigger grief along with the process of mourning or bereavement.
Not only do parents lose their shared dreams and hopes for the future, but they also risk losing their children. The stresses and strains of divorce affect parents in different aspects of their lives. First of all, many people assume that conflict with their spouses will decrease as a result of divorce, and so divorce is foreseen as the cure-all - the hope that ending the marriage will eliminate all the troubles. However, while divorce can eliminate some problems, other conflicts actually arise during or after this process. Relationships usually do not end cleanly and couples are forced to deal with difficult situations that involve fights and compromises, such as moving households, custody and visitation struggles, child support payments and more.
One of the biggest problems that divorce imposes on children is the sadness of their family breaking up and having to adjust to one parent no longer living in the home. Usually it hurts all the family members, including the children that are very young and do not understand what is happening, but they still feel the loss of one of the parents not being around. Divorce, in any circumstance, rips a child apart limiting time spent with his/her parents, and confusing him/her. In Matthew 19:8-9 it says, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.
I agree with the future suggestions that the authors made in terms of holding conventions that teach professionals how to become more knowledgeable in the areas of Autism and deafness because this is very important. I would have liked for the researchers to go into more detail about how the conditions linked to autism as well as hearing loss, such as low vision and intellectual disabilities, impact these children as well. The authors mainly focused on hearing loss and autism. This study compares to information that I learn every day in all of my speech classes because the professors always stress the importance of having knowledge on acquired and non-acquired disorders so that when the time comes to treat the patient we know what we are doing as clinicians to improve not only classroom performance but quality of
