This in turn will affect their learning and ability to interact. This results in children eventually stop wanting to come to school as it’s not a happy safe place for them to be. It can also cause problems at home as they are unable to say what’s wrong and can act out at home. This continues with a child believing what they hear, that they are no good, they do look different, what’s the point , and feeling as if they have nowhere to
This rush can be addicting. So, I guess I'm saying there are biological, environmental and genetic reasons children have criminal behavior. HOW CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR DEVELOPS? In all of these stages the lack of dedication and the atmosphere of rejection or conflict within the family diminish the child's experience of his personal life as one of love, dedication, and a place to belong. Instead, it is characterized increasingly by rejection, abandonment, confliction, isolation, and even abuse.
For example if a father leaves the mother unexpectedly and the mother cannot cope looking after the child on her own then the child will be optionally put in care or a care order put in place. Once a family have a breakdown this can put a lot of stress on individuals in the family including the children. The children may struggle with their situation and begin to show signs of behavioural problems, this will stress the single parent and then the child once again may be optionally or forced to be put into care. • Suspected abuse- if there are signs that the parents are abusing the child this can be from physical, emotional, social and intellectual abuse then this would be another reason for the child to have a care order put in

Poverty usually results from a low income. Lack of funds can result in poor nutrition from a bad diet, lack of adequate clothing and unsuitable housing. Separately or collectively these aspects are likely to impact negatively within the education environment as the child is: unlikely to own the latest 'must-have' accessories; unlikely to attend trips or be involved in extra-curricular activities; possible to be under stress and experience depression; likely to have low self-esteem or sense of well-being as a result of bullying or low expectations from teachers and parents.
Plus, a stressful family environment may cause a child to experience learning disabilities and possibly be of a high risk of a stress related illness. At the same time, various other elements within a child’s background may affect behaviour and development, these being; divorce, a new baby, diet, poverty and media to mention a few. 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.
P1 Outline why children and young people may need to be looked after away from their families Interviewer: Why do you think some children need to be looked after by the state?

In these days, the affairs of child abuse have been often reported by several media.
(Sun,2001) This could be because the parents are so stressed out with the marital problems leading to their divorce that they neglect the academic needs of their children such as helping with homework and supporting their self confidence. “Often it is not the divorce itself but parental attitudes during and after the divorce that affect children's behavior and perceptions about family life.”p.476(Amato and Afifi,2006). Parental conflict and hostility play a major roles in how children are affected during and after a divorce. “...divorces that dissolve low-conflict marriages may have negative effects on children”(p.476 Amato and
It is often at this point that they become labelled as troublemakers. They get excluded from schools which can further encourage negative behaviours and so the circle continues. This can often affect the young persons ability to form and maintain relationships and can even ultimately have an impact on their mental health. Many young people don’t understand themselves what help they need, that coupled with possible communication
