characteristics that increase the likelihood parents will physically abuse their children and
why they are linked to physical abuse.
Teen parents- teenage mothers tend to demonstrate an increased rate of child abuse than in older
mothers. This is due to the lack of social support, high stress levels and lower economic status.
Domestic violence- in families where couple abuse happens, child maltreatment also takes place.
Children in violent homes may be victims of physical abuse and those not physically abused may
have emotional consequences from the violence they watch.
Substance abuse- parents who use drugs are likely to be violent. This is as a result of the
increased substance abuse.
Poverty and unemployment- poverty can increase the likelihood of abuse. This is specifically
when it interacts with other risk factors such as substance abuse and depression.
Social isolation and support- parents who tend to maltreat their kids indicate loneliness,
isolation and diminished social support.
Violence in communities- kids living in violent communities are at an increased exposure to
neglect, physical abuse as well as sexual victimization.

types of psychological maltreatment and the underlying child rearing issue under each.
Terrorizing- the adult orally assaults the child, develops a climate of fear, bullies and scares the
kid, and makes the child suppose the world is erratic and antagonistic.
Ignoring- the parent robs the child off important incentive and responsiveness, suffocating
emotional growth and intellectual development.
Verbal assault- repeated criticizing, name-calling, and threatening a child ruins the child’s sense
Isolating- the child is blocked from creating friendships, and makes the child suppose that they
are alone in the world.
Rejection- the parents denies recognizing the child’s value and validity of the child’s wants.

problems that foster parents experience when they care for a previously maltreated child
and examples of particular type of maltreatment the child experienced affects the
difficulties the foster parent may face
foster and adoptive parents may not know of the child’s past traumas or the magnitude of the
neglect or abuse. Though they have acquired coaching to get the ready to take care of the child,
they may not be fully ready for the exceptional situation of a certain child. The child welfare
agencies are to offer all feasible information on a child but some information is may not be
acquirable whereas, some kids are not okay with revealing their past abuse and traumas.
If a child faces trauma issues it might affect the whole family. Parents may get drawn into
negative patterns of behavior and response. Thus bringing about a feeling of maybe you not
doing enough and feeling guilty as well as angry.
Looking after a traumatized child is really tiresome and debilitating. The child greatly pursues
safety and security in what looks like a perilous world.

Is the American family in decline as reflected by changes in the family structure?
I agree with the statement above. Two-parent homes are in the slump in the US as divorce,
remarriage and consummation are on the climb. Families are smaller today, as a result of the
single-parent homes, and decrease in fertility. Americans are not just having less kids but also,
the environs surrounding parenthood have altered. In the earlier years, babies came as a result of
marriage but recently, births are indicated from women who are single or living with non marital
partners. As a consequence, there do not exist prevalent family form in America. Parents are now
bringing up their children against a scrim of progressively different and for many regularly
developing family forms.
