Kids of all ages around our country, have some difficulty to concentrate in school and get their task done. Some children start in an early age which develops a bad habit later on in life. Reason why this occurs in children and some adults is result of ADHD, a disorder that creates lack of concentration and lack of controlling energetic behavior. It can also mean that it’s hard for the person to be organized with their life and turns it into a habit. Children with poor concentration in school and educational work, can affect them later on in life if not treated or start to be organized in their own time.
Not all children are fortunate enough to have the luxury of a loving, and emotional supportive household. Emotional neglect, typically defined by the characteristics of ignorance on the parents’ part, include, and are not limited to: withholding love and affection, ignoring the need for comfort and attention, and showing rejection of the child (Child Welfare Information Gateway). Such actions pertaining to emotional neglect can result in very significant and negative effects later on in the child’s life, particularly implicating the development of social anxiety. Children who have experienced emotional neglect may or may not have also experienced some sort of physical neglect, as well as emotional and physical abuse. While these different subjects have been known to be correlated, emotional neglect can stand alone.

Children who experienced abuse are also more impulsive, disorganized and districtabilie which affects their ability to perform at school. They are also lacking needed social and work skills that are necessary for age-appropriate adjustment in their designated class. Nearly half of all physically abused youth were assigned to special education by the time they were ready to leave kindergarten, not necessarily because of lacking intelligence, but rather by the negative environment in which... ... middle of paper ... ...buse, may suggest that the forms of abuse interconnect with each other. Victims may experience multiple types of abuse such as a combination of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse, and neglect. Two of the leading studies conducted on the subject compared characteristics of sexually abuse, physically abused, and neglected school-age children (Kurtz,Gaudin, Wodarski,&Howing, 1993;Eckenrode,Laird,&Doris, 1993).
They do not maintain eye contact and seem barely able to distinguish their parents from strangers. They ignore other children and prefer repetitious, solitary play, such as staring at revolving objects. Their air of detachment and drive for solitude sometimes create the impression that they come from or live in a world not ours, and it has been suggested that autism is the source of stories about children who are fairy changelings (Harrison, 1996). There are many questions as to what exactly causes autism. Prospective studies of young children (18-24 months) have highlighted the importance of social-communicative functions as early predictors of a later, more reliable diagnosis of autism (Baron-Cohen et al.,
The lack of attention is not completely obvious until the child faces certain situations, such as school work.

Is ADHD a real diagnosis? “Some say that this explosion of childhood ADHD is indicative of what’s wrong with our society and education system. They blame parents and an educator for choosing quick fixes for what they say is a behavioral problem, not a brain-based disorder.” Regardless of all the research that supports that ADHD is a brain-based disorder, the dramatic rise that still keeps developing is causing people to doubt the reality of ADHD.
“The main symptom, (among the three main symptoms) of ADHD is the inability to pay attention. Kids may have trouble listening to a speaker, following directions, finishing tasks, or keeping track of personal items. They may daydream often and make careless mistakes” (WebMD). These characteristics belong to all children which ask the question, emphatically, is childhood ADHD over diagnosed? Pertaining to children, the inability to pay attention is followed by hyperactivity and impulsiveness.
In knowing that the theory was excluded. Because children with ADHD often struggle in their schoolwork, peer relations, and ability to follow rules at home and at school, it is reasonable to hypothesize that their feelings of capability suffer as a result. Thus, the self-image of children with ADHD were lower than those of other children with regards to their feelings about their behavior, their ability to get along with others, and their ability to succeed in school. The parents need to pay attention to the feelings that a child with ADHD has about him or herself. In many instances, particularly when parents are struggling to manage their child's difficult behavior, it can be easy to lose sight of the effects that ADHD can have on some children's self-esteem.
Common signs of autism include; that the child may develop abnormally or be even be unresponsive to certain things, some might even have very bad tantrums or might have violent outbreaks. Most autistic children do not speak until the age of two or even longer, some never talk which lead to them using sign language or some other form of communication again this communication can be bad or good it just depends on the child. This can sometimes lead to the child being socially impaired, or unable to make friends easily or interact with the public as well. It makes it very hard for the child to make friends or even learn to socialize correctly which can lead to the child feeling different and distancing themselves from the outside world. People have often suggested that baby shots were a cause for autism; however, this was proven wrong.
The Linger Effects of Children Who Were Emotional Neglected Childhood emotional neglect (CEN) is defined as a type of neglect that is caused by parental invalidation of a child’s emotional needs. Children that are not getting enough love, warmth, and affection by their primary caregiver will have a negatively impacted psychological development (Ibrahim et al., 2015). These children will find it difficult to maintain a healthy relationship with family and friends, including their own children. Statistics show that CEN is an ongoing pattern in which 63% of children in the United States experience CEN (Hildyard, et al., 2002). Children growing up with CEN are oblivious in recognizing ones own emotions.
