Crandell - Chapter 08 #71 72. Define and discuss sexual abuse of children. Sexual abuse of children is sexual behavior between a child and an older person that is brought about through force, coercion, or deceit on the part of the adult. Sexual abusers can be the parent, guardian, relative, a neighbor, a friend of the family, teacher, coach, or anyone with access to children. In 80 to 95 percent of the cases the abuser is male. Girls are more likely to report sexual abuse than are boys and are three times more likely than boys to suffer abuse. Federal law established identification standards, reporting policies, and management policies regarding child sexual abuse. Crandell - Chapter 08 #72

73. Briefly discuss the impact of divorce on children. Usually, after a divorce the children live with the mother and may have limited contact with their father. Although the impact of divorce is often felt prior to the actual split, the first year after the divorce was found to be most stressful for the parent and children. It may involve adjustment to new surroundings and new schedules and a decrease in disposable income. Divorced mothers may need to work outside the home or may need to work longer hours and may not be as available to their children. The children often must shoulder more responsibility in the household and with caring for younger siblings. The effects may be positive in the sense that children are no longer living with the stress of parents who are arguing or fighting. Crandell - Chapter 08 #73

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
