In the instance that a mother is abusing drugs and applying for welfare, she probably isn’t adequately caring for her children in the first place due to the drug usage. Denying welfare assistance because she is on drugs only puts more of a burden on the children. As social workers, it is our responsibility to ensure that, first and foremost, the most important social needs are being met before thinking about other social problems like drug usage and allocation of tax
Their educational opportunity decreases, and the drop out of school is enormous because they are not encourage them as much as boys. They are seen in the family as a burden. Lack of education and many obstacles impoverish them. They suffer physical and emotional stress most of their lifetime. In United States, the CDC reported, Adolescent Girls formed a major group of people who received help from the government for prenatal services.
Mothers and childrenAshford universityHCA430: pecial Populations Instructor: Dawn Deem | | | | Shamika McMillan | April 28, 2013 | | Without adequate resources, there is no hope for improvement. Women and children in America are vulnerable. Young mothers become vulnerable due to lack of education and resources to support themselves and their children. The lack of resources that are not available to this vulnerable population are causing children and mothers to live in low income high crime areas with inadequate healthcare and a small chance of obtaining an education. Community based programs are one way to tackle issues facing communities, that if not properly addressed will only worsen.
Due to her domineering presence this meant that any chance that child A’s mother had of being able to fulfil her role as the primary carer was undermined and must have caused great stress and tension within the family unit. This is picked up on by the child who will often display negative behaviour just before a home visit in the hope that care staff will cancel it. This would remove the burden of saying she doesn’t want to go herself which she feels would be like rejecting her family. This finally leads me to the grandfather who would have been the only male to have been involved in child A’s development but he appears to have taken a very minor role and chose to stay in the background letting his domineering wife pull the family strings. This meant again that child A had no dominant male role model in her life and reinforced the grandmother’s matriarchal role.
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. They say more often, that family life was stressful and they had to grow up to soon. They are themselves more likely to divorce and children of divorce feel like divided selves”. I would have to agree with that because I am actually going through my parents getting a divorce and when I found out I didn’t want to believe it at all I didn’t want to see my parents split up it just wasn’t right to me.
Kids without parents suffer the most, there is no mutual agreement for what's best for the child. The mother would like to have things her way and the father his. They can't combine the sight of each other, even if it means sake of their child. This makes very hard for the child and for the school and for other facilities that has to accommodate for both parents separately. For example “in parent teacher conferences there are two copies of report cards, two of everything because the parents can't agree to share.” This is very sad.
Mallard and the narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” were clearly trapped by society because of their gender and the roles that they would have to fulfill. Although it was not stated in “The Story of an Hour” if Mr. and Mrs. Mallard had children, we do learn as readers that John and his wife from “The Yellow Wallpaper” do have a child “….Such a dear baby! And yet I cannot be with him, it makes me so nervous” (480). The narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” is clearly affected by the fact that another women is taking care of her child even if it just for a short amount of time while she is recovering from her nervous depression. Because at that time period women were supposed to take care of their children that was their job and to have another woman do it she more than likely didn’t feel like she was doing her job.
As mothers, especially for the first time, our life are turned completely upside down. It can cause us to go through extreme crisis change. If is not treated the proper way, it can cause major problem on how our baby can develop cognitively and emotionally. Research has shown that mothers who suffer from postpartum are less sensitive to their babies than mothers who do not which can cause the infant to pretty much give up on the world and feel that it is a very
Gender discrimination leads to psychological and emotional disturbance, resulting in demoralization and descend in performance standards. It brings down the overall performance, and fuels more discrimination, which in turn increases the number of gaps in ones work further. After Ms. Salazar had been let go from her work, she had difficulty getting back into the workforce and putting effort into the tasks she was doing. She had later lost her home and had to move into a much more affordable accommodation due to her not finding a stable job. Ms. Salazar was not able to reach the full potential of the American dream due to the gender discrimination she had experienced in her workforce and the negative aftermath it had done to her psychologically.
