Family Function And Its Affect Upon Adolescence: Comparison Of Two Articles
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. There can be no argument surrounding the fact that family dynamics -- that is the interaction patterns between members, as well as the manner in which the family functions together -- are influential with regard to adolescent psychological development. Two articles clearly depict the association between family life and how a child's psychopathology inevitably develops: "Parental Conflict And Self Esteem: The Rest Of The Story" by Pawlak and Klein, and Shek's "The Relation Of Family Functioning To Adolescent Psychological Well-Being, School Adjustment, And Problem Behavior." While both articles address the inherent importance of bringing children up in a loving, healthy environment, they each bring to light the consequences of what occurs when such a home life is not the case. The writer discusses how adolescent children who spend their formative years within the confines of a hostile or dysfunctional family setting are significantly more prone to detrimental psychological development. No additional sources cited.

Illiteracy And Juvenile Delinquency
[ send me this paper ]
10 pages in length. The notion that illiteracy is directly associated with the incidence of juvenile delinquency has received significant consideration within the psychological and educational communities. Clearly, if an individual does not possess the ability to read or write, the mere act of obtaining much less advancing in a good job is out of reach. Additionally, the basics of life represent the utmost frustration and anger, such as understanding simple directions or being self-motivated, which ultimately leads to a significant sense of failure. Combine that with the social stigma inherently associated with illiteracy, and this creates one considerably maladjusted youth whose inability to read and write breeds hopelessness and juvenile delinquency. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
