It can be hard in today’s society to grow up without being affected by it. From environmental factors to your lifestyle there’s bound to be something that will stop you from growing up the way you would without these factors. Genetic Factors: Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of children and. It is a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body breakdown and absorb food.
Physically: It may stop a student from taking part in sports and going on a night out with their friends, it will also be similar for an adult, perhaps interfere with their job and roles i. e. being a parent. Intellectually: It may stop a teenager from going to school/college and with adults it may stop them going into work for long periods of time Emotionally: if you had an illness that you knew you could only ease and not get rid of you would become fed up and depression may be as result of this in both teenagers and adults. Socially: it may stop them from things such as sports or something as simple as going shopping on the weekend.
A teenager would be largely affected by this due to them being in education. Foetal alcohol syndrome refers to growth, mental, and physical problems that may occur in a baby when a mother drinks alcohol during pregnancy. When it comes to pregnancy and biological factors affecting birth growth it can be a prolonging affect on the mother and baby (if they survive). Physically: Drinking whilst pregnant will make a woman ill no matter the age. Heavy drinking can cause problems with pregnancy, such as miscarriage and premature birth. This then goes on to the emotional side of things.
Intellectually: If a mother is drinking during pregnancy they won’t be doing well in work or education, an adult has more responsibility Emotionally: It can emotionally scar a woman to loose a baby for the rest of their life, which will then affect her moods towards herself and other people. Socially: When it comes to teenagers they’re seen as irresponsible adults, but it’s shown that adults and teenagers will drink and smoke whilst pregnant which can severely disrupt a baby’s growth. Bullying can happen whilst you’re an adult but it’s more likely to happen when you’re younger; Bullying is very common and probably happens in all schools.
Recent surveys in the UK have shown that one in four primary school pupils and one in 10 secondary school pupils are being bullied. Physically: They will have scars, bruises, that they will cover up and not show anyone. Intellectually it may stop them going to school or work, children wont be telling their parents making it worse for themselves. Intellectually: Being bullied will slow down someone’s aspirations, with children it may stop them going to school and with adults they may not go to work due to embarrassment.
Adults are more likely to overcome bullying rather than children. Emotionally: Bullying can lower self esteem and can lead to depression and anxiety. These emotions then lead to suicide; it shows that over 5000 people committed suicide in 2008 which is a large percentage along side murders. Socially: It may stop that person wanting to make friends or even talk to anyone, including their own parents. Most people who are bullied prefer to not tell anyone which we all know isn’t the right choice.
