(A) Background. Family Dynamics Family dynamics can have a positive effect on child’s development because the child will feel settle and have a positive input into their lives and good support to help them develop and achieve what they want to achieve, this has a positive effect on their behaviour to. If family dynamics are negative then this have a negative affect on their developments such as divorce because the child may be spending time at different house and having one parent missing so they will feel unsettled and not able to concentrate on things. They may also experience missing one of their parents of relatives being in prison.
Growing up in the household under substances influence can cause severe damage to the child. Parental substance abuse has a significant impact on family function, and it may also contribute to child maltreatment. It heightens the risks to both of the physical and emotional safety of the children, and it generates children’s problematic outcomes. Children who grow up in such families may also experience mental health issues, social isolation, financial difficulties, and exposure to stressful life events and so on.
Another considerable factor of this problem is the influence these substances have on children. Alcoholism in the home is an extremely hard issue to cope with as a child. Domestic violence, which is often worsened by alcohol abuse, causes a lot of mental issues that affect children permanently. Many kids do not have a stable home and are forced to see their parents and loved ones struggle with drinking (Hopkins 7). Suffering through the effects of drugs and alcohol also make education a challenge. Children often times stay home from school or are inattentive during class due to lack of sleep from late-night parties or rowdiness at home.This makes it almost impossible to succeed later in life and lets the problem continue onto the next generation.

Section 1 Substance abuse, the abuse of drugs or alcohol, is known to have a lasting impact on members of the abuser’s family (Crosson-Tower, 2013). Ultimately there are two ways in which a family can experience the detrimental effects of substance abuse within the family system itself, and those ways are through either substance abuse on the parent’s behalf or substance abuse by the adolescents or children in the family unit (Crosson-Tower, 2013). Substance abuse can have many negative impacts on a family unit; the negative impacts are known to be emotionally, physically, and mentally damaging (Gruber & Taylor, 2006).
They can have a positive effect or they can have an extremely negative effect. This could range from constantly pressuring a child to do something or always holding the highest of expectations for their children. This can easily cause problems within a mother-child relationship. In addition, lack of communication between mother and child can also cause a very distant relationship between the two. This is because each person finds it hard to express how he or she is feeling or what he or she is thinking to the other. Essentially, communication is the foundation of any relationship and without it there will be issues that
The whole family can get shattered into pieces due to the teenagers substance abuse problem. Parents fall out with each other over how to handle the situation, while other children are blamed for being a bad example. The teenager with the drug problem get so much attention that the other children get neglected.
Relationship between substance use and family conflict Many studies that have been conducted show a correlation between family conflicts when one or more parent is using substances (alcohol or other drugs). Rothenberg et al. (2016) showed a correlation between reported marital dissatisfaction when a spouse was using alcohol. Kelley et al. (2016) found that children had increased worry and anxiety in regards to their father’s hostility when a parent was using substances and inter-parental conflict was present in the home. Kachadourian, Eiden, and Leonard (2009) researched how marital satisfaction and parenting roles were impacted by paternal alcoholism. Their study indicated that paternal alcoholism taking place for 12 months or more had an impact on the father’s parenting role and increased marital dissatisfaction amongst the mother’s in the study.
Victor Henson from the Center for According to the chapter, family conflict is a risk that could cause unhealthy development where parental support and monitoring, and positive relationships with adults promote healthy development (Broderick, & Blewitt, 2014). A healthy family system promotes healthy development however there are many things that could upset the balance of the family system. Henson described an unhealthy family system as dysfunctional (Family Systems, 2017). He uses his own life story by describing how his mother left him and his father. This would make a family unbalanced as the role of the mother is no longer in the picture. With his father’s several remarriages, it caused him to carry anxiety into his adulthood. Anxiety can affect a child’s social development. A child that doesn’t have a stable mother figure could possibly grow up fearing women or may make their own relationships with women difficult. If a family is living in an abusive situation, that could affect the victim's emotional, spiritual, physical and social development. A child who gets abused by a parent could become more isolated. It could affect their self-esteem. Abuse can physically affect the development of a mother's unborn child. Another thing that could affect a family's spiritual development is the loss of a family member, or a home itself. Pain from a sudden loss doesn’t go away fast. It is something that can keep the family unbalanced for a long
The major experiences and patterns of interaction in my family include family strengths, substance and alcohol abuse, parent child relations, physical and mental disorders (Gehart, 2014, p. 239). The strengths of my family are: strong independent individuals who despite their medical and mental drawbacks are able to fight against these issues. The genogram showed alcohol and substance abuse on just my paternal side, however if you go back one more generation on my maternal side there would be more alcohol abuse. My dad and his brothers began drinking at a young age after their parents divorced. When my grandfather had the boys he would leave a case of beer to babysit while he went to the bar. As the boys grew up they continued to drink and
First, the family gives its individuals a social identity which is primary for our life. Youngsters are naturally introduced to their parents' social class, race and ethnicity, religion, and so on. A few people have favorable circumstances all through life due to the social identity they gain from their parents, while others confront numerous impediments as the social class or race and ethnicity they have is at the bottom of the social hierarchy. (Barkan, 2005) Family helps in socialization, as it is the first place to teach the norms of the society. Family helps in increasing the population, but this might cause over-population. Moreover, if children are born in low-income families, they might be vulnerable to being street children. Also, this might reduce their chances in having a job in the future which might increase the crime rates. To sum it up, families can be a burden on the society, but they also can be contributors in the society to help it grow and
Bailey et al. (2009) and Ehrensaft and Cohen (2012) both performed longitudinal studies that took place over more than a 20 year time period. Both found that intergenerational transmission does occur, but each examined something different that could affect the transmission (Bailey et al., 2009; Ehrensaft and Cohen, 2012). Bailey et al. (2009) examined the effects of parenting, while Ehrensaft and Cohen (2012) examined the effects of the child’s exposure to multiple sources of violence within the family. In examining two different moderators in the intergenerational transmission of externalizing problem behaviors, Bailey et al. (2009) and Ehrensaft and Cohen (2012) both found that intergenerational transmission does not just occur, but there could be many factors that play a role into the actual transmission. Both studies contributed unique results to the overall findings of intergenerational transmission. Although different effects on intergenerational transmission of externalizing problem behaviors were being examined, both sets of results showed that intergenerational transmission does occur.
Adult children are created by what the adult has experienced within their children hood. A dysfunctional family denies a child to grow as a person in a safe happy environment. It effects both their emotional, physical and intellectual well-being and forces the child to find adulthood an emotional and upsetting transition. The lack of

Increased Defiant Behavior Among Children & Teens In today’s world, it appears to me that defiant behavior among children and teens has increased. There are quite a few causes that could be the reason behind such an effect on our young society. These causes can range from the parenting to phycological
