Depression can lead to several thins such as bad grades, wanting to miss school, and lose of interest in anything. The way low self esteem ties in with depression is usually someone who is depressed has a low self esteem. Bullying can actually make a kid start believing what the bully says is true therefore bringing down his self esteem. It is one of the jobs of a bully to lower a child’s self esteem and make a kid feel insignificant. In addition social intimidation can lead to fear among children.
“Low self-esteem can predispose you to developing a mental disorder, and developing a mental disorder can in turn deliver a huge knock to your self-esteem.” (Psychology Today, 2014). Mental disorders, such as major depression, can cause a person to feel less than; to feel as if they are not worthy of the life they lead. Low self-esteem can often make a mental disorder worse than what it was originally. People who suffer from low self-esteem generally have a very negative world view. They may see the world as a hostile,
Different areas of a young carers life have been considered including their family (and parenting capacity), health, education and safeguarding concerns. Attachments between the parent and child can suffer when there is mental illness and separation away from their parents, due to hospital admissions, is a worrying time, however as separation is natural in child development this can create resilience in the child. I chose this subject as I have experience from my practice and I can link the theory and research to my direct work. I found that adults with mental illness are one of the most excluded groups in society and there are close links between poverty, mental ill health, discrimination and social exclusion. Parental mental illness can have a negative effect on the parent / child relationship and child development, especially where there is little external support.
Given this fact, many expectant parents are asking, “Where do these defects come from?” What are the common birth defects? How can we make sure that our baby comes out strong and healthy? Nevertheless, birth defect statistics Say that about half of these cases happen with causes unknown. Now with being able to choose certain genes and playing around with the DNA of your unborn child, these “birth defects” can be easily avoided according to some doctors. Pros of Designer Babies Genetic screening can reduce the baby's chances of being born with several serious diseases like Down Syndrome, Famial hypercholesterolemia, rare blood disorders such as Diamond Blackfan Anaemia, etc.
Child abuse has created massive sufferance of children and can cause negative outcomes through emotional instability in the mind and heart, painfulness of physical wounds, and can cause traumatic distress in the future. Although each parent and child may have their own problems, it is not fair if we let child abuse to happen because it can create senseless and complicated issues. Child abuse has created invisible pain to children’s emotions. According to the National Child Abuse Statistics in 2006, “80% of children getting abused can easily develop psychiatric disorders at the age of 21 such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.” The outcomes of a child being abused can create profound sadness, attempts of suicide, and can affect on his/her social life with others. “In Los Angeles 2003, Richard Jr. suffered abuse during high school at Don Boscov Technical Institute and resulted in depression and suicidal.” (Quinn) As a result, child abuse can bring down children’s self-esteem low and emotional instability in the mind and heart.
What is oppositional defiant disorder? Parents usually feel the brunt of their child's ODD behaviour. Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a disorder where children have disruptive and oppositional behaviour that is particularly directed towards authority figures, such as parents or teachers. ODD is less severe and more common than conduct disorder. Children with ODD are constantly defiant, hostile and disobedient.
Myopia Development in Infants An impairment in vision can lead to a very challenging life. Many Americans suffer from abnormalities in their vision. They suffer with diseases such as glaucoma, hyperopia, and myopia. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is fairly prevalent in the United States of America. In fact, it is estimated that twenty-five percent of the population of the United States is nearsighted (Kolata, 1985).
Effects of Dependent Personality Disorder on Interpersonal Relationships and Society Abstract Aside from the anxiety that a person with Dependent Personality Disorder (DPD) suffers from on a daily basis, there are also interpersonal problems that follow the disorder. Since there is a constant need for approval and reassurance, it can lead family and friends to become frustrated and possibly reject the person suffering from DPD. Unfortunately, interpersonal relationships cannot thrive with continuous mind changing, and requests for advice. Recent studies have shown that DPD is linked to a significantly increased risk for partner and child abuse, suicide, and physical illness along with high levels of functional impairment. Children of DPD sufferers have an increase chance of feeling emotionally abandoned and unloved.
This robust connection holds for both offenders and victims. Unemployment or low-income households are often correlated with discrimination, racism, unsafe living conditions, and social isolation (Bartol & Bartol, 2008). It must be kept in mind that poverty is a relative concept affected by ethnicity and cultural background. Poverty is associated with higher levels of parental stress, which is linked to more aggressive models of parenting or child control. Thus, children growing up in these households are possibly led to believe that survival is dependent on being aggressive; also, they identify with these violent parental roles models having limited access to positive adults due to social isolation.
“The meta-analysis also demonstrates that the frequency and severity of the corporal punishment matters. The more often or more harshly a child was hit, the more likely they are to be aggressive or to have mental health problems.” (Gershoff, 2002) I am going to touch on the few behaviors associated with CP including immediate compliance which is the only positive behavior I will be explaining in this paper. The negative behaviors of CP that can affect a child are: Mental health, aggression, antisocial behavior, abuse of own children or spouse, and the decline of the child’s IQ. Aggression is one of the more significant behaviors brought on by CP. This aggression could bring on temper tantrums, and urges of anger making it difficult for the parent who is taking the child to a public place.
