Poverty should not be destiny….

Poverty is not destiny, but it does place children at greater risk for:

 

Physical Problems, such as substandard nutrition, poor motor skills, and more accidents and injuries.

 

Cognitive difficulties, such as poor academic performance, especially among younger children, and

Higher drop-out rates in high school.

 

Social and emotional problems, such as anxiety, difficulty getting along with peers and adults, and low self-esteem.

 

Behavioral problems, such as engagement in high-risk activities like smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, and early sexual activity, leading to higher rates of teen pregnancies.

 

Challenges in adulthood, such as poor health, lower earnings, higher poverty rates and more criminal behaviour.

 

 

 

 

This is what I need to stop, this is why I need help for my children…..
