But it can also affect their social development as they may not be able to join in with activities their classmates are participating in. Also, in school they might have to stay in a specific place with staff, meaning they cannot go out and socialise at break times etc. • A child may have extreme difficulty retaining information, which affects mental development and impacts on her ability to communicate. The child may get upset or distressed by this – affecting her emotional development.
The other children will try to avoid the child that is unable to share, this can affect the emotional and social development of the child who is unwilling to share as they will feel lonely and neglected and even abandoned. If a child is overweight or even obese and they struggle to do PE at school. As they may not have the energy and could get tired very quickly.

Accommodation may be more which can have an effect on the mental and physical health of children and their parents. Children in poverty can be vulnerable and prone to illness or disability due to things such as malnutrition from a poor diet lacking in nutrients as a result of their parents being unable to afford quality food.

Children of one parent families may suffer as the parent may work long hours leaving the child with very little support and possibly no role model to look up to. Divorce also can be very traumatic for a child. Children whose families have joined with another family and therefore have ‘step-family’ may experience unhappiness due to the child being picked on or feeling left out, this would lead to low self-esteem and they would quite possibly result in lack confidence in their own abilities.

It is usually reached only after other options and alternatives have been carefully considered and then rejected as non-viable
A single mother can try her hardest to keep a child away from making bad decisions, but if the mother doesn’t have any type of family support, chances are the child will guide himself to other unsafe, and unhealthy resources. Fathers who abandon their families might also add to the problem. Children tend to act up after their father has abandoned them. Children might act in violent ways, with anger issues and other hidden emotions.
