Laura Myers Psyc October 11, 2012 Negative Effects Of Children in Foster Care at the Infant Stage of Life The negative effects on children that are placed in foster care at the infant stage of life can be the result of many actions by the foster parent and the caseworker, as well as how much visitation the children have with their nature parent.

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.

In this paper I will be discussing emotional, physical and sexual abuse as well as neglect I will also be exploring historical approaches to abuse, some of the reasons why children are abused as well as the impact it has on a child's development.
