Describe how domestic abuse affects children and young people Sablehouse (2013) state that all children are affected by the violence in their homes. Regardless of whether or not our children have been physically abused, watching their mother being battered is a frightening experience. Children from violent homes can exhibit a variety of behaviours. Some may "act out" and may be viewed as delinquent. Others work very hard to excel at every endeavour in an attempt to keep the family peace.
They can also help us to make decisions that have become necessary due the “stress” that a situation has caused. It is common for stress to come from an outside cause like, work issues, overloaded or long hours and demanding children. But stress has also been proven to be a learned behaviour. We can pick up stressed behaviours from a parent, we find ourselves stressed by the same things our parents get stressed by and find it hard to deal with the same issues without help. There are 6 different types of stress: Hypostress – a type of stress that comes from being under stimulated bored and can lead to depression Eustress – A type of positive stress brought about by a deadline or competition - Leads to the mind becoming stimulated to achieve.
In particular, the majority of people who are experiencing abuse of any kind will be experiencing emotional abuse as well. For example, where one person is dependent on another for their physical care, or between a professional worker and a service user. Abuse may consist of a single act or repeated acts, whether it is physical, sexual, emotional, financial, or psychological, or it may also occur when a vulnerable person is forced to do something that they may not have consented to or be in a position where they cannot consent. Physical abuse: Evidence of physical abuse could be hitting, slapping, pushing, kicking, and restraining. Signs that physical abuse may be taking place can be injuries that are consistent with physical abuse, for example, marks on the body that show shapes, like finger tips, or pinch marks, or a person that has other unaccounted for marks to the body.
The effects of SLCN on young people - Task 12 There is a strong correlation between EBD (emotional and behavioural difficulties) and those who have SLCN ( speech, language and communication needs). Many of the behavioural difficulties that arise from SLCN are avoidable by early detection and intervention, this is still very much lacking within social care provisions and many children and young people’s difficulties go undetected for too long. Many parents and settings are quick to label ‘naughty’ children and would prefer to let someone else deal with them than to look at the root of the problem and see if there is a reason behind these behaviours. There are many agencies that can help, much of the problem is that people don’t also realise there is a problem to begin with. Families that are aware of the problem aren’t always made aware of what help is available for them and although this has had more parliamentary support and has been further prioritised, it hasn’t been widely publicised.
There are many things in today’s society that go overlooked, and child abuse is one of those things. Child abuse, in my opinion is any mistreatment or neglect of a child that results in non-accidental injury, harm or death that cannot be logically explained. Some children go weeks, months, years being abused. They have no way out and are scared to confide in the people around them for
LaJoya Reed Mrs. Rebecca Duncan English 101 June 8, 2011 Parental Right to Spank (Corporal Punishment) Parental right to spank is a controversial topic because so many people agree and disagree with the subject. As a parent, they have the right to discipline their children at their discretion and to spank their children within reason. The Bible says in Proverbs 13:24 , “To spare the rod is to spoil the child”. Therefore, a child being spanked by a parent should be done out of love to correct wrong behavior in exchange for the behavior that the parent wishes for the child. Parents who are for parental rights to spank usually disciplines their children to reform them of his unacceptable actions.
In many situations their peers are aware of the abuse and don’t know how to approach the situation. Many abused individuals who are confronted by their peers deny any accusations in fear they will be alienated. Unfortunately, there seems to be a stigma on the abused and surprisingly some people assume the victim did something wrong and got what they deserved. Because of judgmental people who lack empathy victims of abuse conceal the harsh realities they face daily to prevent rejection. Thankfully, domestic violence advocates are there to help individuals who seriously in need of positive guidance and support.
Emotional abuse is often difficult to recognise. It can be very subtle, often being overlooked by a person’s friends and family. The person affected may not even think or feel that abuse is taking place. Emotional abuse can affect women and children experiencing it in many ways. It can leave deep psychological scars and can seriously damage the
Society needs all of us to stop bullying, even if we are not engaged or affected by it. If people do not stop those who bully, then we all end up playing an important part in bullying. Introduction Every day in our schools and communities children are teased, threatened, and tormented by bullies. Bullying has been identified as a problem that creates an environment of fear, and in Veronica’s case is impacting her entire school. Those who fail to recognize and stop bullying behavior as it occurs, actually promote violence.
There seems to be a misconception when it comes to older foster children, some of them do have emotional problems but when we look around us, with open eyes we will notice that many people have some type of emotional problem, they just are not labeled. Being moved from house to house is a very upsetting thing. If the child and foster parent cannot communicate it can cause distrust and placement issues (Crum, 2010, p. 1par 3). Many of the kids come from a neglected or abused home life so stability would be relief. The longer one is in foster care the harder it is to adjust unless you are in one home.
