If there were people offering assistance both emotionally and financially , this social issue could be prevented . this kind of solution would need to involve the whole community and even a bit of government assistance abandoned babies are often found in dustbins, toilets, on the side of roads and even rivers. If girls or women do not want to keep the child a type of safe house could be established for both the mother and baby . it should provide a safe environment for the mother while pregnant and ensuring the child is born in a safe environment. this will ensure the babies safety and ensure that the baby doesn't get hurt. After mothers give birth , the babies should stay there and be looked after . the babies should obviously be put up for adoption and will leave the safe house once adopted.
This house does not need to be entirely run by the government but their assistance would be needed to obviously build this place and supply it with its basic needs. what the community can do is provide essentials for this safe house such as baby food, clothes , nappies ect. the community cold also volunteer to work here , look after the children and assist pregnant girls or women

    Introduction: The child welfare system is a corrupt system. Many suspected cases of neglect (GRTEP defines this as “parents should have done something for the child but failed to do so,” such as denying medical care or not feeding them) or abuse (GRTEP defines this as “Abuse means that you did something to hurt your child,” such as molesting them or hitting them hard enough to break bones) are going unreported or uninvestigated, children are living in miserable conditions (even after DCS intervention or when in foster care), and are not given a smooth transition into adulthood. Perhaps a more family centered approach to ending child abuse and neglect would benefit our country the most. Discussion: With many children living in neglect and abuse…

    If parents get joint custody, children are bounced around from house to house making them feel vulnerable and unprotected because they can’t have a stable family home. Parents may also use their children to get information to see what’s happening with the other parent after a divorce. Children may also have to choose a side and hear a parent talk bad about the other. They are also harboring all kinds of feelings but afraid to speak up because the nature of the atmosphere around them is very tense. Divorce also permanently weakens the family and the relationship between the child and parents.…

    There are several ways to reduce domestic violence and its revictimization. Social service interventions refer to shelters, support groups, and advocacy services (Dewey et al., 2003). Shelters are places where women and children are safe from their intimate partner or father. It may be considered as an emergency facility to live at and build plans for a new life without being abused. Shelter staff members help victims of abuse to overcome their fears, to help make new life, achieve goals and to manage their future by finding a job and their place to live at (Dewey et al., 2003).…

    This is an ethical dilemma because there is a chance that when the social worker calls CPS they will remove Maci and neither parent will have full custody.

This is true in terms of all the measures social scientists use to assess well-being including measures of self-esteem and outcome measures related to later education, employment crime and the like. It is also true in terms of abuse and neglect rates.…
