Effects of Broken Homes

...The effect of a broken home on the child Posted on August 24, 2010 by soulsista704@yahoo.com There is no disputing the fact that the home or the conditions in which a child grows up in determine the eventual outcome of that child. The home is the first school of life the child is enrolled in and where that home fails to provide lessons that would mould and keep the child grounded, such individual ends up exhibiting some questionable personality traits or character flaws. The role of both parents can, therefore not be overemphasized. The presence of the father as breadwinner, authority figure and role model should instil in the child the discipline and focus required to succeed in life. Consequently, the presence of the mother as care giver, support system (both morally and spiritually) and disciplinarian is needed to guide the child through the right paths in life. One should also note that other members of the family at large have their distinct roles to play in ensuring that the child is brought up properly where he does not end up becoming a menace to the society. The parents are the primary authority figures in the child’s life and their attitude or actions in the home towards the child, with each other and with others, could make or mar the child depending on the level of influence or quality of value instilled in the child. Where at an early age, the child is exposed to circumstance that contradicts the normal status quo in the family, that child is bound to pick......

Children from Broken Homes

...Children From Broken Homes Jessica D King Park University Abstract All of us come from different backgrounds, two parent homes, single parent homes, raised by grandparents ect. However, there are also those that come from homes that never really existed. These children grew up mostly on the street, sometimes with a parent or both, and sometimes they grew up mostly by themselves, with no one to comfort them, to teach them right from wrong, to love them when they needed it the most. Do these children have less of a chance than those who came from a ‘stable home’ or are they destined to be condemned to a life of crime? I will talk about the difference between ‘broken homes’ and ‘stable homes,’ how they differ in parental situations and economic outcomes/status, and the problems that society most closely associates with children from ‘broken homes’ compared to those from ‘stable homes.’ Growing up in a ‘broken home’ may be different than growing up in a ‘stable home,’ however, that does not mean children from ‘broken homes’ will turn out any differently than those from ‘stable homes.’ They may be from different backgrounds, but each can make their way in the world, for good or for bad. What exactly is the difference between a ‘broken home’ and a ‘stable home’? I suppose that in most cases that is a matter of opinion. However, the term ‘broken home’ is described by Oxford Dictionaries as “a family in which the parents are divorced or separated” (Oxford Dictionary,......

Broken Home

...“BROKEN HOME” I looked around the house; the walls seemed strong and they were holding together. I couldn’t seem to find any holes. Where were they? I knew they had to be somewhere, but my search for a gap or even a crack became hopeless. Maybe it was Mom’s house that was punctured, but when I looked around her place, I was equally disappointed. Yet, people insisted that I came from a broken home. That was fourteen years ago, and now that I’m much older, I know that they didn’t mean “broken” in the literal sense. I can still remember the confusion, that burning question inside of me; if my home is as sturdy as everyone else’s, then why am I labeled as different? It’s a painful reality that has taken me all these years to accept being different, being broken. I used to wonder; if it’s bad to break things, is it bad to be broken too? I can see there is something broken about my family. Instead of being one supportive unit, our home has been one of constant fighting and worrying. Instead of following my parent’s directives, I am forced to decide which parent to listen to. And I hate it. I hate being stuck in the middle of two sides, trapped in the center of the conflict, with no place to turn. I’m not on one side and I’m not on the other. I’m just lost in the middle with my sister and three brothers. When I closed my eyes, I imagined that it’s all a game of tug-of-war. I am the rope that both my parent so desperate to gain. They both pull without......

Broken Homes

...Abstract Living in a broken home will affect more than fifty percent of children born this year alone as they will have to endure the divorce of their parents before they’re of age ceremony; turning 18. Not only that, but children whom experience such a thing are more than likely to need psychological help. A broken household is the result from one’s parents divorcing, sometimes certain parents to never be seen again or even the start of abuse. The purpose of this study is to provide a systematic review of the evidence-based literature concerning broken homes, illness, behavior and delinquency. It is hoped that this study will inform those studying human development. Keywords: Broken, Home, Relationship, Bonding, Development, Action, Emotion. The Effects of Living in Broken Homes It is time, at last, to speak the truth about broken homes and the how they affect the psychological development of children. Problematic behavior in children up to adulthood goes hand in hand with how they were raised and what setting their childhood took place in. Depression, separation issues, anxiety, relationship problems, disorderly conduct and delinquency or even little emotional reaction could all be factors of living in a broken home. Not only is there a possibility of these actions, but relationships and bonding could also be put to a halt. Children can hardly control their emotions let alone actions upon having little to no structure. As Oxford points out, “it is not the actual......

...of teachers, problems of inadequate facilities in the schools, problem traceable to students, problems caused by parents and society at large and problems of government policies and funding of education (Ajila and Olutola, 2000). Reviewed literature indicated that there is an awareness of the importance of the home environment or family on pupil's/student's academic performance. The home has a great influence on the students' psychological, emotional, social and economic state. In the view of Ajila and Olutola (2000), the state of the home affects the individual since the parents are the first socializing agents in an individual's life. This is because the family background and context of a child affect his reaction to life situations and his level of performance. Although, the school is responsible for the experiences that make up the individual's life during school periods, yet parents and the individual's experiences at home play tremendous roles in building the personality of the child and making the child what he is. Thus, Ichado (1998) concluded that the environment in which the student comes from can greatly influence his performance in school. Although, the home environment or family has been recognized as having a lot of influence on the academic performance of students (Nzewuawah, 1995; Ajila & Olutola, 2000). Previous studies have been concentrated on the area of socio-economic status of parents. Other aspects of parental environment such as the structure of the......

An example of a long-term goal for the client with a cerebrovascular accident (stroke) is the return of full or partial function to a paralyzed limb.

If a client achieves short-term goals in the hospital, however, he or she is more likely to achieve long-term goals during home care or in other community settings. GOALS FOR COLLABORATIVE PROBLEMS. Goals for collaborative problems are written from a nursing rather than from a client perspective. They focus on what the nurse will monitor, report, record, or do to promote early detection and treatment (Alfaro-LeFevre, 2002). The format for writing a nursing goal is, “The nurse will manage and minimize (identify complication) by (insert evidence of assessment, communication, and treatment activities),” or “(identify complication) will be managed and minimized......
