Introducing Liberty in Feeding Babies: No Stigma Attached After eighteen years of failed in vitro fertilization trials1 and ineffective fertility drugs, my aunt had built up a wall against the taunts of a society that measures individual success based on one’s ability to reproduce. When my aunt did give birth to a healthy baby boy, she was forced to battle a new wave of criticism. She had difficulty producing an adequate amount of breast milk and soon after her delivery, she came down with the flu. Worried that she might get the baby sick, my aunt decided not to breast feed until she was better. Unfortunately, taking a break meant she lost her ability to breast feed completely.

The doctor ran some tests and discovered that Arielle’s memory loss was caused by drug abuse when she was born.

They may also internalize their behavior by becoming depressed and showing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Child maltreatment not only affects the child that is being abused, but the family system as well. Some acts of child abuse can be prosecuted with criminal charges which could result in jail time and other serious punishments. Children show the affects of their maltreatment throughout their life through their behaviors. Child abuse is a serious problem that needs to be prohibited by all agencies.
B. Socialization is a vital role in the upbringing of children, it is up to the parents to guide the child in areas such as communication, manners etc. II. Displaying of moral values is equally important as teaching it; parents should lead by being an example to their child just as teaching it. A. Parents should be their children role model, simply because children view their parents as an inspiration to them, they do what they are told by their parents and they act upon what they see their parents do also.
When my mom twisted her ankle my Aunt Bertha faked a seizure. We could tell it was fake because Aunt Bertha would stop seizing long enough to put more food in her mouth. She has gone to three licensed doctors who all said she needed to receive psychiatric help because she was showing no signs of M.S. My Aunt Bertha then found a all natural doctor who doesn’t use modern drugs or tests who confirmed her diagnosis of M.S. The doctor then proceeded to prescribe pills to my Aunt saying that they were the cure to M.S.
Everything changed when she caught the flu and was taken to Boston's Children's Hospital. There, a young doctor decided that Justiana was not actually physically ill; he believed she was mentally ill, and was for some reason creating her own symptoms. Because of this doctor's disbelief in mitochondrial disease, a completely new treatment plan was created. Linda and Lou Pelletier were shocked that this was done without consulting Justiana's other doctors and they attempted to take their daughter home.

Does the state have the right to interfere or intervene and remove children from the home because they feel the parents are negligent in caring for the child's mental and physical health? Based on the parent’s refusal to administer prescribed medication they deemed harmful in exchange for an alternative medicine? This dilemma is discussed by Corey Williams of the Associated Press, author of “Mother battles Michigan over daughter's medication” about Maryann Godboldo who decided to discontinue medicating her daughter, Ariana, with an anti-psychotic drug Risperdal to take on a more holistic approach to her daughter's health issues. This includes her confrontation with police due to negligent actions and behavior. Williams takes into account Ariana’s past and present health problems and whether the child was properly diagnosed with a mental disorder and appropriate treatment was administered.

In conclusion, certain environments can have a negative impact on children’s subsequent psychological development. In this essay I discussed how an environment of domestic violence and inter-parental conflict and an environment of divorce or separation and the changing of the family structure can negatively affect the child’s psychological development and behaviour. Domestic abuse and inter-parental conflict, even if it is not directed at the child, have the ability of making the child become more susceptible to the same psychological trauma, in terms of development, as children who receive direct physical abuse and maltreatment from their parents. An environment where the child is exposed to conflict and aggressive behaviour from their parents or “models” can also have significant negative impacts on their psychological development.
