Example text

In the past, children with various mental health and educational needs were too often described in global terms such as maladjusted, because assessment devices were not sensitive to different syndromes and diagnostic clusters of symptoms (Achenbach & Rescorla, 2007).

This has given rise to increased and earlier recognition of previously poorly understood or undetected problems— learning disorders, depression, teen suicide, eating disorders, conduct disorders, and problems stemming from chronic health conditions and from abuse and neglect.

By the time they were 10 years old they were both familiar with domestic and community violence, and each lived with his mother and an older sibling after his parents divorced. The boys rarely saw their fathers, and when they did it usually wasn’t a pleasant experience. By the time they reached grade 6 they were falling behind at school, and started to get into trouble with the police for staying out too late, hassling kids at school, and breaking into cars.

Nevertheless, the greater the degree of inequality, powerlessness, and lack of control over their lives, the more children’s physical and mental health are undermined (Aber, Jones, & Raver, 2007). Poverty has a significant, yet indirect, effect on children’s adjustment, most likely because of its association with negative influences—particularly harsh, inconsistent parenting and elevated exposure to acute and chronic stressors—that define the day-to-day experiences of children in poverty.
