Transcript of Copy of Child Neglect: The Glass Castle

Cause of Child Neglect Solutions and prevention to Child Neglect History THE GLASS CASTLE: CHILD NEGLECT What is child neglect? How does it relate to The Glass Castle? Child neglect is the failure to provide for the shelter, safety, supervision and nutritional needs of the child. Child neglect may be physical, educational, or emotional neglect:

Physical neglect includes refusal of or delay in seeking nourishment, abandonment, expulsion from the home or refusal to allow a runaway to return home, and inadequate supervision.

Educational neglect includes the allowance of chronic truancy, failure to enroll a child of mandatory school age in school, and failure to attend to a special educational need.

Emotional neglect includes such actions as marked inattention to the child's needs for affection, refusal of or failure to provide needed psychological care, spouse abuse in the child's presence, and permission of drug or alcohol use by the child.

Medical neglect is failure to provide appropriate health care for a child (although financially able to do so), thus placing the child at risk of being seriously disabled or disfigured or dying. Of all the types of neglect, this is the trickiest to diagnose because religious or financial factors can play an adverse role in a child receiving appropriate medical care. Jeanette had an alcoholic father and a self-interested mother who cared more about her art and happiness than her children. Jeanette struggled to keep herself safe, keep her family together, and to keep her siblings nourished. Her mother, Mary Rose, always claimed mundane things were a waste of energy, such as cleaning the house and cooking a meal “that would be gone in one hour, while a painting could last forever.”

Economically, her parents were reckless; her father drinking an inheritance and her mother was too "bored" to stay in employment as a university teacher for more than a few months. The children had to support and feed one another, but, due to their tender age were familiar with hunger and poverty. How it all began The reason what cause the Parent to neglect their own children is because they were involving drugs and alcohol.
They became addicted to it and never be able to quit because the drugs took over their body, and control and the children became their target to abuse them.
Parents neglect children because of their parenting lack of skills, never watch over the children when they near around threaten object such as fire, and highway fast lane.
Sometime parents had been a bad influence from their parent before them, and it cause them to neglect their children under their influence, also never show any parent love to them at all and that what cause the children to became the bad behavior and influence.
Some Parents have been mental issue history before they became the parent because their own parent never get them any therapy help for their need, also many time the police take their children because of their parent mental issue. Consequences of the Issue Current State of the Issue Many neglected children feel unworthy to interact with peers, may isolate themselves and may encounter peer rejection .
child neglect associates with the poor academic achievement.
More children die from neglect than from abuse.
The significance of child neglect should come as no surprise, given that a lack of parental care and nurturance--hallmarks of child neglect--poses one of the greatest threats to children's healthy growth and well-being. Why should we care? Increasing services to families such as home visiting, early childhood education, parent education, and family planning.

Providing mental health services to parents who need and want suchservices, and making mental health services available to victims of child neglect as early as possible to prevent the future perpetuation of neglect.

Increasing public awareness efforts to educate the public about child neglect and how it can help to prevent it.

Increasing efforts to address social problems such as poverty, substance abuse, and family violence which are related to child neglect. Warning signs of neglect in children

Clothes are ill-fitting, filthy, or inappropriate for the weather.
Hygiene is consistently bad (unbathed, matted and unwashed hair, noticeable body odor).
Untreated illnesses and physical injuries.
Very thin, skinny.
Is frequently unsupervised or left alone or allowed to play in unsafe situations and environments.
Is frequently late or missing from school. ]

Noticing these symtoms can help prevent child neglect. Child neglect became defined as a social problem in the 1870.
But it lost its focus and declined.
It reappeared in the 1960s when finally professionals and laypeople condronted the maltreatment of children and opned the door for public education, research, and intervention in protecting the rights of children.
Because of radiology, physical abuse and child neglect were officially recognized in the 1960s, but it took another decade for sexual abuse to be acknowledged. It wasn't until the 1980s and 1990s that emotional child abuse was recognized.

So here we are, in 2011. . . the 4 types of child maltreatment are recognizable, but child neglect is not just in our history; it continues today in disturbing numbers. Child neglect and the resulting injuries that children and youth suffer are still far from understood. We have a definition to the problem, but no answers. One child advocate making strides in providing answers is the United Nations through their Convention on the Rights of the Child.
From 1963-1965, forty seven states passes child abuse reporting laws. Today child neglect continues to be an issue as it was in the past, but its consequences
and punishments are even bigger. November 11, 2011 Deltona Mother Accused Of Child Neglect
Parent neglect their children related to their history from their family and drugs related because the parent are mostly likely to be wanted on their own but sometime they dont want to have the children and never treat them as they were their family.
Most of the time children were held custody because of their parent mental illness then put the children into foster home.
Many parent take advantages using child welfare so they can use the money for the drugs, then that pretty much cause the child abuse because all they care is money and drugs they never pay attention to their children, they have been using them for the money.

From what really come to the parent neglect their children since when they never wanted to have kids for their own because they dont treat them as their family sometime they drop their children at someone else house and never see them again.
Many researcher believe that the parent neglect their own children is because of drugs related and mental issue, there are few hundred of parent was mental issue, and drugs related also many time the police took their children away from them because of their issue and anything that are bad related. Yet child neglect is still a problem today.
Globally, approximately 40 million children are subjected to child neglect each year. All States have enacted laws and policies that define State roles and responsibilities in protecting vulnerable children from abuse and neglect. Issues addressed in statute include mandatory reporting, screening reports, proper maintenance and disclosure of records, domestic violence, and other issues. Child neglect can lead to problems as an adult which may include:

Physical consequences - such as failure of the brain to develop properly due to malnutrition and other medical issues; also, poor physical health in general which can lead to an array of problems later on

Psychological consequences - low self-esteem, problems maintaining healthy relationships, depression, PTSD, eating disorders, suicide attempts, cognitive/learning disabilities, social disabilities, and other issues

Behavioral consequences - juvenile delinquency, alcohol and drug abuse, criminal or abusive behavior

The dangers of neglect can be dire for a child's healthy development. Without proper care, children are in danger of not developing properly due to malnutrition, physical injury, or illness. But the hidden danger of child neglect - the one that may not be apparent for many years but which can stick with a person for their lifetime - is the risk of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that can affect them psychologically and emotionally in the long-term. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKXvsXes8tA Statistics of Today
