New! Week 1 Forum Peters 



Hey All! 

My title is Cassie. I at current keep in Portland, OR and work as a preschool teacher! I want to go on adventures, study, and play soccer and guitar! Solely a small little little bit of an introduction!

By the use of family protection, I really feel an vital information from the transcript is the definition of family protection and what family protection entails. As a result of the transcript states, family protection is significantly of an extension/emphasis on social protection, nonetheless as a substitute of one of the simplest ways we work collectively socially, family protection is one of the simplest ways we work collectively and work as a family (Bogenschneider & Gross, 2000). The transcript states the four family capabilities embrace family creation, monetary assist, childrearing, and family caregiving. Each of these capabilities is crucial to sustaining steadiness inside the family, or sustaining family protection. If the family won’t be involved inside the caregiving, who’s caring for the kids? Furthermore with childrearing, who’s instructing these kids one of the simplest ways to carry out inside the home, along with of their ecosystem, macro, micro, and mesosystems? Monetary assistance is one different key take into account sustaining a constructive steadiness inside the family on account of households in poverty often face greater factors than households who’ve monetary assist. In accordance with Welch (2012), census info displays that there are upwards of 15.eight million kids in America residing in poverty. Children and households in poverty often face points with psychological and bodily illness, along with a decrease of their top quality of life. 

One different key degree from the transcript is that each family creates their very personal family protection primarily based totally on their views of their family and family life. Every family has their very personal method of sustaining family steadiness primarily based totally on one of the simplest ways that they had been raised and one of the simplest ways they want to elevate kids. Based totally on which method a family performs their childrearing and caregiving, their family protection may be fully totally different from their neighbors or from the other little one of their child’s class, within the an identical facet various households may need the an identical family insurance coverage insurance policies and views and raise their households the an identical. 

The third piece of information that grabbed my consideration was the Oregon Social Learning Coronary heart’s dad or mum coaching program, primarily on account of I am a resident of Oregon, however as well as on account of I am inside the childcare self-discipline and have labored with many dad and mother who I take into account need coaching on parenting. In accordance with Bogenschneider & Gross (2000), 30-40% of youngsters who expert inconsistent parenting of their early childhood years experience anti-social behaviors and switch into violent offenders later in life. The OSLC provides trainings for people to review managing kids with anti-social habits, and stopping this habits.

Aliyah SotoNew! Aliyah Soto- Week 1

I found this to be a very fascinating study and I actually really feel I was able to research hundreds from this presentation. I’ve under no circumstances researched the topic of family protection so I wasn’t exactly sure what to anticipate. Initially, my first concepts on family protection had been just like the occasion that Karen Bogenschneider gave nonetheless I quickly found that it is so far more than that. I found that family protection contains how politics regulate and place stipulations on what insurance coverage insurance policies and purposes are made to protect, serve and revenue households. “Family insurance coverage insurance policies search to strengthen households by the use of evaluation, coaching, and civic involvement” (Welch, 2011, p. 412). Functions that revenue households are terribly important significantly for these which might be contained in the low-income socioeconomic standing. Households that keep in poverty have a necessity for purposes paying homage to Medicaid, after school purposes, childcare, and plenty of others. on account of their income would not allow for them to afford these purposes with out assist. One factor else I found is that policymakers often take care of the individual and by no means that of the family on account of they’ve a skewed view of the necessities of a family. Households are considered to be one and additional evaluation must be carried out on how individualistic views of these purposes impression the family as a complete. One different issue that I found was that the “United States is among the many solely worldwide places on the earth that does not level out households in its construction” (Bogenschneider & Gross, 2000, slide 11). I understand the thought behind not mentioning households inside the construction nonetheless I actually really feel that since households often will not be talked about it permits politicians to resolve what purposes revenue a family in any technique they see match. A terrific occasion of that’s Karen Bogenschneider mentioning the CHIP insurance coverage protection program and the way in which it protects some family members and by no means others. The CHIP program is especially designated for youths and customarily their dad and mother are eligible for purposes paying homage to Medicaid whereas totally different dad and mother might can buy insurance coverage protection by the use of an insurance coverage protection service. As any individual that works with insurance coverage protection, I’ve seen firsthand how households are financially burden when their teen has a contagious sickness they often as a result of the dad or mum aren’t lined by any insurance coverage protection nonetheless they need to be dealt with. Not on a regular basis is that this medical safety full safety and there are situations the place households have paid for a particular safety, solely to go looking out in the marketplace that it solely covers accidents or emergency room visits solely. From the presentation I’ve found that family protection needs to be positioned on the prime of priority document.

Women in the Work Force



The US Division of Labor displays that the number of women inside the labor drive has steadily elevated over the earlier four a few years.  In 1970, roughly 38 p.c of the workforce was women, and in 2012, it rose to 47 p.c (DoL, 2016).  My family background coincides with the developments.  

In accordance with The State of Our Unions, 2008, the number of marriages drastically decreased from 77 p.c in 1970 to 39 p.c in 2007 (Carlson, 2009).   These numbers coincide immediately with the rise of women inside the workforce.  I do not assume that it is coincidental that an growing variety of women are working as compared with three a few years up to now.  Girls didn’t ought to work once more then.  Now, they just about ought to each be married to any individual that is working, or work themselves with the intention to get by.

My maternal grandmother lived on a farm with my grandfather, who was a farmer.  She saved the books for the farm, nonetheless under no circumstances labored outside of the home.  That that they had 9 kids, thought of considered one of whom died all through infancy, nonetheless the rest of the kids helped out on the farm from a youthful age.  My mother had three kids, and labored full- time at a neighborhood retailer for nearly all of my youthful years.  My family struggled with money, so after I used to be just a little bit older, spherical age 11 or 12, she went once more to varsity to get a degree, and shortly after, she was working full time for a hospital as an MRI technician, which paid considerably higher than her minimal wage retailer clerk job.  Now in my period, I acquired my first half time job after I used to be 15, at a grocery retailer, then at a daycare coronary heart, McDonald’s, Arby’s, Blockbuster, then I joined the Navy.  I on a regular basis wished to have my very personal money so I was wanting to work.  So over the generations, my grandmother did not work outside the home, nonetheless every my mother and I did.  For my grandmother, the housekeeping and childcare nonetheless was solely as a lot as her.  Until in the present day, she has dinner on the desk by 5 P.M. for my 90 yr outdated grandfather, and does all of the household chores.  My mom and pop share duties, significantly now that there will not be any kids residing at home.  Nonetheless even when there have been kids at home, they generally shared all household duties.  

My family is just a little bit untraditional.  I am energetic accountability navy, and my husband is a preserve at home dad.  We nonetheless share a whole lot of the household obligations, nonetheless he does all of the childcare all through the week after I’m at work.

Elevating a family is refined in proper now’s society.  There are so many further environmental issues lately.  We don’t want them to walk to the park or to the bus stop on their very personal, we have to watch what they’re watching on TV, and on the laptop, and what they be all ears to on the radio.

New! Women in the Work Force – Chelsey A



     Hiya everyone,

This week is about women inside the work drive. Girls and their correct to work has grown rather a lot beforehand years and a few years. “At the moment, women make up virtually half of our workforce, and many girls are the primary breadwinners for his or her households. The reality is, higher than 75 p.c of single mothers are the one provider for his or her family. The elevated number of women inside the labor drive has every mirrored and contributed to a severe social transformation over the earlier various a few years. Girls’s notable progress over time is mirrored of their elevated tutorial attainment, bigger earnings, higher occupational selection, and a much bigger presence in administration positions and entrepreneurial fields.” (USDL). I am glad to see numbers up for this on account of the reality that further households inside the modern-day are broken up households and have single dad and mother. Some questions that must  be answered are such:

How has your family members modified over the earlier three generations in regard to women’s involvement inside the workforce?                   

My family really hasn’t modified that rather a lot on account of work drive altering. My good grandmother on a regular basis labored laborious and handed that on to my grandma. My mom was a single mom so she labored whereas I was watched by my grandma or at a daycare.  

What female family members labored or are working outside the home?

My good grandma, my grandma, and my mom all labored inside and out. My grandma labored in a home enterprise whereas my mom labored outside the home. Each taught me that you just work laborious to get the place you want to be.  

How is that fully totally different from the workforce involvement of current female family members?

It is not fully totally different.

Due to this, how has childcare and housekeeping modified in your family members?

In my case nothing modified on account of it is what I grew up with and was accustomed too. I under no circumstances observed a girl in my family not work laborious to raised herself or her family.

With numbers paying homage to so rising purposes are being made to help households and single moms, married women and so forth with problems with their life. There are non-profit organizations proper now as successfully. All of the items that is achieved will help kids and their future. Duke really made a program for points like this. “The Coronary heart for Teenager and Family Protection formally opened on July 1, 1999, guided by Bill Chafe’s broad and daring value: “Make a distinction!” At the moment the Coronary heart does merely that, with higher than $7 million in yearly grant funding, 70 employees and higher than 40 affiliated faculty fellows. Faculty and staff work collectively to seek out and take into account strategies for bettering kids’s lives, and to share their discoveries with policymakers and public corporations.” ( duke).

Everyone have a stupendous week,

Artianna SingletonNew! Juvenile Justice- Artianna Singleton

Ultimate Edited By Artianna Singleton on Jul 7, 2016 12:36 AM 

“Our youth often will not be failing the system; the system is failing our youth. Satirically, the very youth who’re being dealt with the worst are the youthful individuals who discover themselves going to steer us out of this nightmare.” — Rachel Jackson

The above quote by Rachel Jackson highlights a very pertinent topic on the treatment of juveniles.  The easiest way the justice system is treating our youth won’t be environment friendly in decreasing delinquency or jail habits.  In proper now’s day and age, the smallest crimes devoted by juveniles might find yourself in wrongful incarceration or wrongful deaths.  In accordance with the Gottesman and Schwarz (2011), over two million juveniles had been arrested in 2008 and 95% of these arrested had been non-violent crimes.  Easier purposes and reform insurance coverage insurance policies needs to be carried out all through the nation to forestall juvenile delinquency and offers juveniles a further directive path of steering. 

Juveniles are youthful and their errors are inevitable. This assertion is not simply an opinion, however as well as a scientific proven fact. In accordance with Reyna and Farley (2006), “thoughts maturation in adolescence is incomplete.” Adolescents have the potential to know correct from mistaken, nonetheless, they tend to behave sooner than they assume and are strongly influenced by mates. The premise of unhealthy selections made by juveniles won’t be on account of unhealthy character, nonetheless comparatively immaturity.  Subsequently, reforms are needed to remind adolescents that their current actions should not must be their future.  

Many reforms uncover one of the best, most fairly priced reply comparatively than specializing within the reply that ends within the efficacy of adolescence. In a journal article about Oklahoma’s juvenile system, Jeremy Mason explores the injustice of the juvenile system and the way in which the courts fail to guage the variations between juveniles and adults. Mason (2015) states that Oklahoma has been labeled as “considered one of many world’s worst juvenile justice methods inside the nation.” He provides a solution saying, “the first step in the direction of fixing the problems with the juvenile justice system is to grasp the impracticality of sustaining a costly system that fails to supply the very benefits it claims to generate” (Mason 2015).

One factor fascinating I acquired right here all through in my evaluation is that juveniles are 4.6 events higher to commit suicide than the general inhabitants (Stokes et al. 2015).  It has been discovered the first motive for this statistic is expounded to the psychological nicely being of juveniles.  A reality sheet from The Nationwide Coronary heart of Teenager Poverty (NCCP), states that 27% of incarcerated youth bear from excessive psychological sicknesses (2011).  No matter many juvenile facilities having therapist, the NCCP moreover opinions that many facilities do not show display screen for psychological sicknesses. I uncover this to be an injustice to the youth in these facilities. Juvenile reforms wish to consider the illness juveniles face with the intention to acquire constructive outcomes and cut back the amount of suicides. 

With the intention to decrease crimes devoted by juveniles, I take into account courts ought to take a look at each adolescent individually for what they’re; adolescents crying out for help.  I am not saying that there must be no consequence for juveniles’ actions, nonetheless, juveniles must be guided down one of the best path comparatively than be suggested they’re nothing nonetheless criminals.  The easiest way juveniles are dealt with by the justice system will contribute as as to whether they could commit in opposition to the legislation as soon as extra or flip into model residents of society.

Can you take into account it, there are solely three worldwide places inside the complete world that do not promise paid maternity, and positive, you guessed it, america is taken into account considered one of them. The Family and Medical Go away Act was launched in 1993 nonetheless solely applies to companies with higher than fifty employees and solely comprises twelve weeks of UNPAID day off (Professionals and cons of paid paternal depart, 2015). Companies are allowed to off further day off and even paid day off nonetheless are accountable for the price. In accordance with the Bureau of Labor Statistics there are solely twelve p.c of employees in American that will receives a fee paternal depart (Professionals and cons of paid paternal depart, 2015).  

As a part of the White House Summit on Working Households, the Obama Administration is engaged on a 2.2 billion buck effort to start out out paid paternal depart insurance coverage insurance policies (Professionals and cons of paid paternal depart, 2015). Sadly, it has gone nowhere thus far on the federal diploma and probably isn’t going to anytime shortly. The supervisor division has granted federal employees six weeks of paid paternal depart, which was one profit I really appreciated whereas I was inside the navy, if I wanted to go on six weeks of unpaid depart inside the civilian world I am not sure how my family would survive with me being the primary breadwinner. There are moreover for states that offer paid parental depart being California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island (Professionals and cons of paid paternal depart, 2015).  

Like many others you would ask your self, is there really any impression as far as nicely being within the case of children and mothers, and the reply is bound! In accordance with a study achieved in 2011, paid paternal depart can really cut back toddler mortality value by as a lot as ten p.c (Wallace & Christensen, 2015). The likelihood of infants getting well-baby care visits and vaccinations will also be elevated when dad and mother are equipped paid paternity depart. 

There are moreover long term outcomes of paid paternity depart. In accordance with one story, women who took higher than 12 weeks of maternity had fewer indicators of melancholy, a decrease in excessive melancholy, and their complete psychological nicely being improved (Wallace & Christensen, 2015). One different study found that ladies who had the different to have a further generous maternity depart had been eighteen p.c a lot much less liable to bear from melancholy 30 years later once they’re fifty or older (Wallace & Christensen, 2015). There was moreover a study that confirmed males who took 10 days or longer of paternity depart had been further involved with their kids along with teen care actions as compared with indicate who did not take any depart the least bit (Wallace & Christensen, 2015).
