The Impact of Parental Mental Illness on Children Aged 5 – 12 Years Word count 4116 Abstract This essay sets out to learn what effects parental mental illness has on a child’s life. It will focus on what young carers say about their caring responsibilities. Legislation and government policies maintain children should be protected from inappropriate caring and each child should be supported to meet the five outcomes of the Every Child Matters (DfES, 2004) agenda. There is a need for inter professional working and a shared protocol to support young carers and their families. Different areas of a young carers life have been considered including their family (and parenting capacity), health, education and safeguarding concerns.
The relationship between parent and child has often been held responsible for the long term outcome of that child’s personality, behaviour and role within our social world. A successful adult will often praise parents for the love, support and sensitive parenting exhibited during their childhood. Likewise an adult involved in criminal behaviour will often “blame” the negative relationship experienced with their parents. Whilst it is more complex than being able to attribute positive and negative achievements solely to the parents, parents have a massive role to play in the social and emotional development of their children. Psychologists believe it is the earliest part of childhood – infancy that the relationships with parents are forged and these interactions are the building blocks for the children’s positive or negative experience of the social world.
Should Juveniles Be Charge As Adult In Criminal Cases? “Draft paper” Delvitta, Reid Post University CSS101.58: Learn Across Lifespan 10/3/12 Instructor: Erna, Krieger In my draft paper about should children be charge as an adult in criminal cases. To me it depends on the case and the ages of the child have done. Today around the world there are many children going to jail at the age of 12 to 14 .I have seen child charge as adult at the age of 12, and still in jail doing time for killing someone he didn’t like in school and he shoot him in the face. To me the children of today don’t care if they kill someone and they would not go to jail because their age.
Stanford v Kentucky was a United States Supreme court case that dealt with the imposition of the death penalty on offenders who were at least sixteen years old at the time the crime was committed. Stanford was 17 years old at the time he committed murder in Kentucky. On January 17, 1981, Stanford and an accomplice repeatedly raped and sodomized twenty year old Barpel Poore during and after their robbery at the gas station Poore worked at. Hearings were held to decide on whether Stanford’s case should be held in Juvenile court or adult. The juvenile court did make the decision to transfer his case, therefore; Stanford would be trialed as an adult under a state statute permitting such action as to offenders who are either charged with a class A felony, capital crime or anyone over the age of sixteen and charged with a felony.

Custody cases are the most common cases to use a guardian ad litem but aren’t the only reason a guardian ad litem might be used. A judge must name a guardian ad litem if he/she feels the child has been threatened, hurt, or neglected. Children who are in foster care or protective services must also have a guardian ad litem. There are many misconceptions about what a guardian ad litem is and their role. They are not lawyers nor do they have to be, their role is to make their own decision based on an independent investigation about what they feel is best for the child.
A child is usually with their parents for three to five years before they enter into the public schools. Those three to five years are crucial in a child’s life. Their parents have already molded and shaped many ideals and beliefs their child will subconsciously have forever. I agree with the reading in regards to the statement that, “social and cultural practices of a family are key considerations in the family literacy program.” I think that students learn best when it’s associated to prior knowledge. If an instructor or program allowed for students to learn based on the home’s cultural views, the child would more than likely understand the material better and also do better in school.
The summer day camp was aimed at improving social behavior, academic work, and sports skills. In the NIMH Multimodal Treatment Study for Children with ADHD, which included nearly 600 elementary school children across multiple sites, nine out of ten children improved substantially on one of these treatments. Additionally, antidepressant medications may also be used as a second line of treatments for children who show poor response to stimulants, who have unacceptable side effects, or who have comorbid conditions (such as tics, anxiety, or mood disorders). Tricyclic antidepressants have shown clinical efficacy in 60-70% of
Another category is as individual people, who are attempting to become adults. As an advocate for children, more specifically delinquent children, I have several years of experience working with the delinquent youth population. My position in the group home setting has afforded me the opportunity to address juvenile delinquency first hand. While at the same time my position allowed me to provide therapeutic treatment, and to connect the youths with resources needed to correct delinquent behaviors. Additionally, I am instrumental in connecting these youths to services for educational needs, emotional support, and preparedness with independent living skills.
