Disability of the Child - Factor of the Risk of Social Exclusion of Parents (Experimental Research of Constatation)

Svetlana Haraz


This research approach is based on the belief that addressing the challenges faced by parents who have children with disabilities in their care requires a thorough understanding of the attitudes that govern the daily behavior of people around them.

Parents who have a child with disabilities certainly live a multidimensional challenge that life has begun without the right to reproach. Moreover, regardless of the circumstances in which emotional suffering occurs, parents have to cope with the most difficult situations imagined. Social exclusion is not just a result of the circumstances of the moment, but also an impact on the prospective prospects of the affected person.

The phenomenon of social exclusion of parents who have children with disabilities in their care is a necessary social phenomenon to prevent, because at the moment it can not be avoided. In most cases, parents blame a great deal for their child's suffering. Self-emotional references, the need for difficult choices, and the attitude of society disfigure parents against the unknown, they use all their efforts and resources to overcome such situations. How many soul mishaps, hesitations and reconciliations with oneself and others are hiding behind this simple situation. In spite of maximal mobilization, it does so to one point.
