Family Health Assessment

A health assessment is used by many individuals in understanding about their health status or lack of, as well as assisting them in making health-related decisions. Each family is very unique with different ways of life and perceptions about their health. Getting to know the family, structurally as well as functionally helps to identify health behaviors along with risk factors that may be helpful or harmful to the family. This is an extended family; consisting of grandma and grandpa, their oldest daughter who moved in two years ago, and her four children. LZA, grandma is 55, RAA, grandpa is 57, KMG, mother is 30, her daughters; KAG-8, MMG-6, RAG-3, and baby ZLG-1. This family had a very religious upbringing and is still very active in the Catholic Church, attending mass every Sunday. They strongly believe in the importance of family and religion. They value sentiments like compassion, respect and consideration of others. The family is at stage IV of the Duvall’s developmental stages of the family: (the oldest child in the household is eight) families with school-age children; children develop peer relations, and parents adjust to peer and school influences. This family’s home is situated in a nice quiet neighborhood, close to a park where the girls can play. KMG states that “very nice people live here, and we are going to live here forever.” Grandma rolled her eyes after hearing this. This is a four-bedroom, two bathroom home, with the grandparents in one room, the mother has her own room, KAG and MMG share a room and RAG and ZLG share a room. The home is clean but has many of the girls’ toys lying about. The family/living room is where the family spends most of their time inside the home. There are puzzles, books, dolls, and Legos strewn around as RAG bounces back and forth between the…...

The culture of the Filipino is close family ties that if we became unethical or doing bad in the business the family will not support you but if we choose to do good and be ethical, family will support you and will extend help when troubles came. The influence of my family is very important to me that way I showed them how much I value them in my life by not bring them disgrace of anything that will harm or threatened the family reputations. My ancestors really value the reputation that we have and what people might say in our family this influence lead me to give importance in this aspect. My family who is a devoted Christians and followers of Christ impact a lot in my ethical decisions. They taught me to follow and obey God that will gratify Him in a manner that will bring glory to His name. Offering to God all the things that I’ve done and bring sweet aroma to Him through this unethical decision is not an issue anymore. My accountability to God which my biological tree influences and instills in my heart helps me to choose to do what is right and good and pleasing to the sight of God. And whatever wrong that we done in our life will be passed to generation to generation because it will be inherited by our family members so better to choose to do the right thing. 2.

...Families and Households There is a large debate amongst many Sociologists in relation to gender divisions of labour within families and households. Factionalists such as Murdock accomplished that family is so beneficial to society that it is unavoidable and global. This view is not shared by all sociologists. Feminists would dispute what functionalist’s state. Most feminists believe family exploits and discourages women. Parsons, a functionalist argues that there is a strong detachment of work between husbands and wives based on biological changes. He claimed that these detachments are favourable to men, women, children and wider society. Parsons believes women have the sensitive role designed towards homemaking and childcare. Men hold the instrumental role designed towards work and being the breadwinner. The New Right supports Parsons, they believe that the division of gender is normal and beneficial to family and furnishes the children to integrate to modern society. However many sociologists such as Young and Willmott claim that men are now sharing domestic roles and more wives are now becoming breadwinners as well. Feminist’s sociologists disagree with Parsons they claim that this only benefits men and the division of labour is not natural. Willmott and Young conducted a study in the 1950’s with a group of working class extended families which confirmed that conjugal roles have become more segregated. However in the 1970’s they conducted another study......

...were put on top. I think the photographer was trying to show that a family can be created by not allowing boundaries to stop you. My interpretation showed a family setting, with a diverse background. While I was looking through photos for my assignment I notice a certain picture. While I was looking at the photo, it reminded me a lot of my own family. I have a very wide range of ethnicity in my family and I am very proud of all my members of my family. I was never ashamed or embarrassed of them; some had step-fathers or step-mothers. I have heard stories from some friends who talk about how they were teased and harassed because they had a white father or a Latino mother. Even when I was in the military I had friend who told me they were embarrassed of their sister or brother because they married outside of their race. It always ended the same when the apologized to me, saying they were sorry if I was offended for saying what they said. Everyone has their own views on how they feel about a diverse family. I believe each person is entitled to their own opinions. I was once confronted by an individual when I was young due to the fact my cousin was half white. I remember the look on his face when he started crying because he hated being different. I deeply value my family weather they have a mixed culture or not. I was taught; family was a very important factor in life at a very young age. As of today, my family members are a very tight-knit group and I could not be prouder.......

...The Family With its Narrow Privacy and Tawdry Secrets is the Source of all Our Discontent Edmund Leech’s statement from his Runaway World lecture in 1974 “the family with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets is the source of all our discontent” suggests that the family is a negative force within society. This essay will describe what the family is, what its main functions are and outline the different types. It will explain how the family is detrimental to its members with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets and illustrate some of the consequences that these have on society as a whole. Society has to have a means of repopulating itself. The family is an institution with the key responsibility of the reproduction and social education of society’s members. New members must be taught by the family what it means to be a member of society. Weiss defines the family as “a small kinship structured group with the key function of nurturant socialization of the new-born” (quoted in Cree 2010). There are many different types of family. The nuclear family with 2 generations of family members under the same roof are the most common in modern society. Extended families with 3 or more generations living in the same household are becoming less frequent. These families can be extended either vertically, usually involving grandparents, or horizontally, with aunts uncles and cousins. Single parent families, as the name implies, involve a single parent with dependent child or children.......

I felt like when I observed Kayleuna it went well because I was already use to seeing this individual in that particular setting at least three days out of the week. My best friend works their and it is about 20 feet from my house so I am often their observing and helping out. It was not uncomfortable for the kids in her class seeing me there because they were all use to me being in then classroom. Kayleuna was real receptive because she was already use to me because I was a familiar face she hug three days out the week since my friend began working at the facility. I think that’s kids are real receptive of people that they are familiar with and know. I know this child’s family so that was another plus form the observation when it came to getting the parents permission. The difficult part for me was having to sit back and just watch Kayleuna act like she did because I was use to intervening when she got to acting up in the classroom. But this time I could on just sit back and watch to see what might be the underline to her problem and what can I do to help her develop. The most enjoyable aspect of my observation was coming up with a solution to help Kayleuna out with her social/emotional state and her language development. Not only did I find a solution I passed it on to her parents as well and they were real receptive to all the information I had to offer. The thing that I learned from this experienced......

Procurement of Projects and Services - the Possibility of Adopting Nec3 Family of Contracts

...Procurement of Projects and Services – The possibility of adopting the NEC3 family of contracts Sustainable procurement for construction or engineering relies upon making value for money decisions over the life of the asset and not solely on capital costs. A value for money solution to meet user requirements relies upon the optimum combination of whole –life costs and quality. Any procurement strategy should identify the best way of achieving the projects objectives, taking into account the likes of key objectives, constraints, funding, risk and asset ownership. It is the optimum balance of these factors that one strives for. The procurement route is the means of achieving the procurement strategy. This will include the contract strategy that best meets the client’s needs. The contract strategy will determine the level of integration of design, construction and maintenance for a project. This should support the main project objectives in terms of the likes of risk allocation, incentivisation and delivery. There are many procurement routes available including traditional, design and build, prime contracting, management contracts and private finance initiative/public-private partnership. The NEC3 family of contracts is designed to be flexible enough to work in most currently available procurement routes. All parties involved in the project delivering process can be employed under one of the “family” of integrated NEC3 contract forms which allows the parties to......

...ntroduction Family is the basic components of the society. And the researcher believes that the number one ingredients on youth’s happy life are their family, that the parents are the most important source of youth’s behavior, which effect to their outlook in life. So if the parents are separated, how does it affect the youth and what can they do about it? When parents split up, there can be many emotions that a youth may have to deal with. These feelings, internalized or expressed, will result in certain behavior that will possibly affect to the youth’s outlook in life. Being a broken hurts! It is the collapse of a God intended design. Children can get robbed of a special experience and protection called "Family". They move on in their lives as individuals without the understanding of what familial security and bond is. They look out into the world and wonder why it has dealt them a cruel card in life. "Why me? Why can't it be Pedro, the big bully? Surely he deserves it more than I do?!" Having to deal with separated parents can sometimes also be much harder than if one were to grieve their loss through death. Some people, however, swing to the opposite end by denying that it affects them. They try to go on merrily in their lives projecting an image that they are handling it well. The truth is, there is a world of difference between what one experiences in a healthy family versus one that is broken. It does not, however, spell condemnation or doom in your life. You can do......

...Roevee Tisoy HCOM 320 Research Paper Topic: Comparing High Context (Asian) and Low Context (Western/American) cultures' emphasis on family. The word 'family' holds a different meaning for everyone and depending on how they were raised, some people may put more of an emphasis on family than others. Another factor that contributes to how people feel about family and how much emphasis they place on things such as respect, familial roles, and family duties is their culture. Different cultures emphasize the importance of different things in society, family matters, and personal affairs. The purpose of this research paper is to compare the idea of family between a high context and a low context culture, particularly the Asian Cultures and Western Culture. Topics that will be covered include a brief overview of family, the types of family systems, family roles, parent-children relationships, and communication in between family members. Family is defined in the course textbook as "the fundamental communication system in all cultures"(Ting-Toomey & Chung, 2005, p. 87). From a very early age, children learn to look up to their adult role models (ie. Parents, Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents), and in doing so they learn what to value and appreciate. The course textbook briefly describes a "family socialization process" (Ting-Toomey & Chung, 2005, p. 88) through which children learn to understand issues such as boundaries, power dynamics, and authority issues. In the high...

Family to Family

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY Family to Family Submitted to Dr. Gene Jefferies in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of EVAN 525 Contemporary Evangelism by Shawn T. Hunt October 4, 2014 Abstract The book Family to Family is a concrete guide for the family that has lost connection with itself. The very purpose of the book as stated by the authors is to “discover God’s purpose for your family, develop a family mission statement, establish core values, make time for quality and quantity family time centered around God’s purposes, and equip you to lead your children to Christ and mentor them spiritually.” As the authors Pipes and Lee walk the readers though these areas they show us how to raise families that are centered on Christ and how parents can pass on their faith to their children and reverse the trend of them leaving the church upon turning eighteen. Family to Family begins with the life of the typical church going family that tries to do too much and is not connected to each other through Christ. The authors give the reader a weekly rundown of all the activities that this typical family has and shows how this is the cause of their disconnection with Christ. Pipes and Lee use data from the American Family Association to show that “Only 34 percent of America’s families eat one meal together each day.  The average father spends only eight to 10 minutes a day with his children, this includes meal......

...Many of today’s families are constantly on the go. Therefore, finding time for family style meals that are also healthy can be a difficult task. To assure that families, especially children, eat healthy there are some very simple steps that parents can take. Studies have shown that taking these steps to promote healthful eating habits in children can have long lasting benefits. “Some past studies have suggested that when parents and children regularly connect over dinner, children are less likely to take up habits like smoking and drinking”. (Norton, 2007). To help busy families eat healthier, it is up to parents to lead the way. “Sometimes, this requires parents to act as a united front. This means that one parent cannot offer vegetables as a snack and the other parent makes regular trips to the ice cream store. By doing these, the children will often receive mixed messages and will likely make decisions on their own”. (Lair, 2000). Often times the decision they make may not be the best for their health. Therefore, parents who are good role models with their eating habits have a much easier time convincing their children to eat better. If parents are eating vital, wholesome foods like whole grains, beans, fresh vegetables and fruit, and healthy animal products children will be more likely to follow suit. (Lair, 2000). Children who are introduced to healthy eating habits at an early age have a better chance of eating right when they are adults....
