Social services should have removed Andy from her care because she could not care for him. I did not think they should have put him in the Los Angeles County because no child should be in a place like that. According to the textbook, Tower-Crosson, (2010). “Protective workers involved in the assessment process learn to ask specific question designed to assess the potential risk of the home situation to the child and the capacity of the parents to cope with child rearing. The interviewing process is an integral
If you asked anyone in America if they have ever eaten dog meat, they would probably say no and maybe call the police. However, if you went to certain parts of the world and asked the same thing they would say, yes, of course. To many Americans this might seem absurd and crazy just because it is just simply not what they are used to. This brings up the question, who is right? Appiah, in his Moral Disagreement essay, provides a valid answer to this question, “The point is not that we couldn’t argue our way to one position or the other on this question; it’s only to say that when we disagree, it won’t always be because one of us just doesn’t understand the value that’s at stake” (p. 666).
Rather they are basing their facts on controversial issues. Granted this might be the reasons families have changed, but Fox and Fumia should have conducted their own research on this subject matter to make their article more reliable. Interviewing several families, does not proof why the constructions of families have differed from the traditional family. Further, none of the families interviewed by Fox and Fumia held the government liable for their new way of life. They simply choose this way of life, because it suited them the best.
Examine the reasons why some sociologists choose not to use questionnaires when conducting research? Questionnaires are usually a method of collecting large amounts of quantitative data which are favoured by positivists due to their reliability, generalizability and representativeness however in this essay I will look at some of the reasons why other sociologists may shy away from using them. An important reason why some sociologists may choose not to use questionnaires are because low response rates can be a major problem especially with postal questionnaires. For example in Hite’s study of ‘love, passion and emotional violence’ 10,000 questionnaires were sent out but only 4.5 percent of them were returned. This shows why some sociologists may not use questionnaires as with a low response rate they can lack generalizability.
It also showed emotional and verbal abuse in the form of name calling. This was an inhumane and diabolic mistreatment of vulnerable individuals unable to defend themselves. Winterbourne appears to have made decisions based on profits and returns, over and above decisions about the effective and humane delivery of assessments and treatments. Where were the staff who should have been reporting these crimes to management , if management was not listening then they should have been reported to the authorities and organisations, such as social services and CQC that is what they are there for. Staff who had no involvement in the actions taken towards the residents, but failed to comply with the agreed ways of working and report what they knew was wrong is just as much to blame as those who were involved.
Atmosphere Issues Name University of Phoenix As the new Mayor of Sparksville, the town was anticipating a change that could sustain the city. The best choice I went with made the economy thrive and successful it stated I was an ECO – Hero but my grade does not reflect that. The first one was the Distribution Company which was good but had some issues with the proposal, the proposal was straight forward yet not enough information to help Sparksville be a sustainable city. The proposal was to create jobs five hundred jobs for Sparksville citizens but that was all, the Distribution Company promised to do emissions testing a couple of times a year but that was not enough to make me want to vouch for the them to the Board. The Distribution Company felt that the government was to help Sparksville become a sustainable city.
In accordance to the restrictions found the Grayson family would have to make several decisions whether or not they would be willing to change certain way of living in order to comply with the Condominium bylaws. For example, would Mrs. Grayson be willing to sacrifice running her business from home? Would Mr. Grayson mind removing the letters from his van every night? And would the Grayson family mind not keeping their macaw as a pet if the Board does not give them approval to keep
He also asked the congress for cash-strapped local governments to hire more teachers and firemen. This affected American teachers and firemen because they had better opportunities to pursue their careers. In March 2010 President Obama created a National health care reform system for uninsured Americans. This system allows them to buy into health care plans with added subsidies and tax incentives but it also prevents the insurance companies from denying coverage. Economist believes that this system will do nothing to control cost but the budget office believes the bill will reduce the cost over a ten-year period.
In very many sociological studies, social scientist attempt to explain certain aspect of family lives albeit culture, history, time and place. These studies outcome are important and contribute to family life in a big way, at the very least they attempt to provide some guidance on how families within different cultures do things. As important as the finding of these studies are they must not be looked upon as a “one size fits all” model. They do not always apply to every family and often time what make sense in one culture, would be totally absurd in another. In “Invisible Inequality” Author Lareau challenges a ten years old study by Kingston who argues that social class does not distinguish parents’ behavior or children’s lives.
It is expected, encouraged, and frowned upon if an individual chooses not to take advantage of the opportunity. In 2008, twenty-one million citizens under the age of thirty did not vote. Americans would look at that fact in a very negative prospective but there are actually several pros to NOT voting. One must be open minded and understanding in order to fully grasp why some individuals of America do not vote. Not voting could be a benefit because of the voter’s lack of knowledge.
