Even though advocates against child abuse work diligently every day to put an end to child abuse, it is tragic because child abuse can cause physical and emotional distress along with many other factors and child abuse can lead to developmental issues and detachment from others. In the book “A Child Called It”, Pelzer says he lived a normal and healthy life until his mother became an alcoholic, transformed into a monster, and began expressing her anger on her child at the age of four (Pelzer, 1995, Loc 1344). The physical injury or ill-treatment of a child under the age of eighteen by a person who is responsible for the child’s wellbeing under circumstances, which indicate that the child’s health or wellbeing is harmed or threatened thereby, is the definition of child physical abuse, defined by The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect (Newton, 2001). Ethical theory is an idea that helps a person form personal standards to help them differentiate what is morally good or bad. Child abuse within any standard is morally wrong in the eyes of most people.
The sadness thing is that children have been abused especially sexual by their own parents or siblings. Children become violent just watching programs on the TV, or actions from other people. In the community violence often affects marginalized groups of children, such as street children. In the US, when children are born into young families not prepared to receive them. As a result, they are unable to
Joseph also appears to be displaying aggression towards his grandmother as well as at school. Iwaniec (2001) suggests that violence is a common element in dysfunctional families. Each member may be experiencing issues related to social, psychological and physical changes in their life courses. However, the most vulnerable people within this family are the children, who are reliant upon adults to ensure their welfare and quality of life. The racial and cultural backgrounds/
Sedaris and Sanders both describe their events with an emotional state in their lives, one being "Cyclops" which describes his father's exaggerated messages towards dangerous encounters as "Under the Influence" by Sanders causes a mournful tone as he recollects his father's alcoholism. "Under the influence" By Sanders truly sparked a dramatic scene in my head as I read his story as a kid dealing with a dramatic house hold experience. He dealt with a loving relative which happened to be his father, self destruct before his eyes as he watched helplessly. I can remember being at that age, where most things seem simple until I met my fathers other half. It was like night and day as weekdays turned into weekends and father figures turning me into an agitated and frusterated kid.
Reasons For Violence In Families And Intimate Relationships. For ages, psychologists, feminists and researchers tinkered with violence in intimate relationships; they delved into understanding and unmasking the root cause of physical and psychological abuse in relation to families and intimate relationships. Why would people in a love relationship harm their partners, why would they control and frighten their soul mates and why does this trend persist across the world? According to William (2005) relationship violence is rooted in power struggle and the hunger for control, every body wants to be the boss. When an individual is dominated by selfish tendencies and he is fiercely tethered by low self image and self esteem his desire to assert supremacy over the others is heightened.
In a divorce situation most persons had a changed lifestyle and it can affect mainly young children and person now entering the adolescent stage. Divorce tends to intensify the child's dependence and it tends to accelerate the adolescent's independence; it often stimulates a more relapsing response in the child and a more violent response in the adolescent. For some persons, divorce shakes trust in dependency on parents who now behave in an extremely undependable way. They surgically divide the family unit into two different households between which the child must learn to transit back and forth, for a while creating unfamiliarity, instability, and insecurity, never being able to be with one parent without having to be apart from the other. As the functionalist state, the family is like an organism, containing different parts, each of which must work together for the well-being and equilibrium of the organism.
The reports on cyberbullies, ruined reputations and dangers have caused so much fear against parents. They may also wonder how to be able to discuss with their kids regarding this issue. Teen suicide and self-harm are two leading effects to the cause cyberbullying. Teens may have serious thoughts of or attempt suicide various times.Teens may begin to drop weight and make cuts and bruises on their body. The self punishments for cyberbullying are becoming more serious everyday.
I am writing about an issue that occurs within broken families and is a form of child abuse. This little known form of abuse is called Hostile Parenting, formally called Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). Hostile Parenting is a group of behaviors that are damaging to the children’s mental and emotional well-being and can interfere with a relationship between the child and either parent. These behaviors most often accompany high conflict marriages, separation and divorce. The behaviors whether verbal or nonverbal, cause a child to be mentally manipulated or bullied into believing a loving parent is the cause of all their problems, or the enemy to be feared, hated, disrespected and avoided.
According to Freudian’s theory he displays signs of a core issue referred to as Fear of Intimacy. This issue leads a person to become detached because they have “overpowering feelings that emotional closeness will seriously hurt or destroy them” (Freudian). For example, he does not have any relationships outside of his family, and even when he is at home he remains guarded. Home is where people get comfortable and let their real selves shine. However, Gregor continues “locking the doors at night, even at home” (Kafka 9).
And lastly, Tyrone resents taking on a family, because it kept him from making his “big break” as an actor. In the beginning it is obvious to see that the Tyrone family lives differently than most other families. For one their house has many unused and unlived in rooms. On top of that the family is always in a tailspin of emotions. One minute joking and teasing and the next fighting and yelling.
