Just imagine having to sell a home that one had put so much thought and work into, made so many memories with ones children, held so many family gatherings and holidays, all because of a divorce. That takes a psychological toll on a person. The thing that would more than likely impact a person is the fact that they can not spend as much time with their children as they did before. This leads to kids resenting their parents because they are not their for the children like the children wishes they would be. The financial aspect of a divorce is also major.
Ashby Have your parents made you move in the middle of high school? You get all the anger built up inside and hate them for making you move as if your life is going to end. You try everything in your power to change their mind and they still end up moving, whether you like it or not. Being the new kid isn’t easy for most teens, just as in the movie Ashby, when Ed Wallis, high school student, moves to a new town. This movie is filled with great aspects of pathos that draw you into your own life perspectives on bullying, death, love, determination, friendships, and denial.
All these changes have resulted in a good amount of money spent redoing everything to prevent skateboarding, but nothing is being done to give skateboarders a safe place to skate. For young teens whose only transportation is a skateboard, they can only travel so far, and skateparks are not close enough. To eliminate the amount of skateboarders in heavily populated areas, I propose that cities invest more money into building skateparks so skateboarders have a safe place to practice the sport. It is very hard to perform at the best of your ability with only being able to practice in your front yard. Skateboarders try to find a new place to skate, but come across a sign that reads “No Skateboarding” and get the cops called because they are on private property.
Be it road trips, camping trips, playing pool—he was just always out. If he was ever home at all, I can only recall him either sprawled out on the couch in from of the TV or on the phone with his friends or his girlfriend. When I was younger, it didn’t take me long to see all of this as unfair treatment. For me, it was very difficult to have any freedom with my social life. I had a 9’o clock curfew and could only go out with friends whose parents my parents had to know personally.
In short order I find myself doing time behind the netted walls of my play penitentiary, my senses still reeling from the heady intoxication of a job well done. Let Mom and Dad tromp back to their game. Once I bust out of the stir, no get-together in town will be safe from my naked abandon. Whatever happened to the carefree days when we were young and didn't care what other people thought of us? When I was a little kid I wore absurdly generic clothes, shed them whenever my parents had company, scratched myself whenever I had an itch, and generally worked all manner of tomfoolery without any care as to what others would think.
Some children will place the blame entirely on themselves, while others who witness divorce will be more prone to look for love in strange places and develop violence in their own relationships. Another affect that divorce has on children is that it makes the child more likely to have troubles staying in long term relationships (Wallerstein, 1989). Young children especially, are unable to cope with the stress and drama of divorce and custody battles, leaving these children who experience divorce first hand, affected the worst (Whitehead.1998). When young people are exposed to the disturbance of divorce the psychological, emotional, and physical damages they endure remain with them for their entire lives and affect them negatively. Children and adults tend to view things that happen in their surroundings very differently.
Introduction: In the last two decades divorce has increased substantially leaving couples single and families broken. Divorce is the reality for many families as there is an increase in divorce rates, cohabitation rates, and the number of children raised in step and single marital families. Divorce cannot be overlooked as it negatively affects and impacts youngsters for the rest of their lives. Although it is the decision between two parents’s children are hurt the most in the process. The concept of divorce is extremely difficult for children to understand as there are many unanswered questions and uncertainties.
Another example of this is when Billy Deel is forced to take care of himself while his father is passed out and constantly drinking, “Billy had a lot of unsupervised time on his hands” (Walls 82). Billy was greatly affected by his father’s alcohol abuse his personality didn’t maturely develop like other children. This is shown when he sexually assaults Jeanette and doesn’t see anything wrong with it, he yells on page 87 “Guess what? I raped you!” (Walls). This statement proves that parents make a huge impact on children, and when children don’t have that, they suffer.
Moving from the poorest town to now living in the richest town was something Jacinto had a hard time adapting to. Jacinto missed his friends and family. The kids in the new town often laughed at him and frequently called him names. Jacinto started to hate Carlos and blamed him for everything, which included, making his mother sin and taking him from his friends and family. When Jacinto was thirteen he got into an altercation with kids from school that was again, making fun of him.
They get raped by relatives or people that are close to them and it leaves them in psychological anarchy, and by the time they are teens they are so used to being mistreated that they start doing it to other people as well. Sometimes they get bullied at school and don't do anything about it because they don't want to be called a "tattletale" or "snitch." Without loving parents the child may grow up to be an alcoholic, dropout, criminal, or even suicide. Why should children who grew up in turmoil be given long sentences that one judge decides upon. More factors should be accounted for such as where the child grew, was he or she neglected, was he or she beat, or even was he or she raised in proper conditions.The judge should review the childs or teens history before making their final judgment, because what if the child has already had a tough childhood.
