Poverty and Children in the United States

The children of the United States should not have to worry about where their next meal is going to come from or worried if they will have a nice warm bed to sleep in for the night. There are so many children that are born into the United States that do not ask to have to live in poverty each and every day. There are many of us that have been at a stop light and seen the people that are wearing the dirty torn clothes asking for help because they are hungry and have no money. Most of these people are homeless or live in poverty. There are ...view middle of the document...

5 million children each year (Kabler, Weinstein, 2009). This is very sad to see that there are this many children that do not have a warm bed to lay their head every night. So let us look at it this way if you took a school that only had 650 students and you have 1 in every 50 that are homeless that would equal to 13 students that are attending this school is homeless. The numbers that are real shocking would have to be that there are 58% of the children that are homeless are above the age of 6. Of that 77% are children in grades of kindergarten through eighth grade, and then you have 23% are in grades ninth through twelfth. Children without homes are twice as likely as other children to experience hunger and more than one third of homeless children have been forced to skip meals (Kabler, Weinstein, 2009). There has to be more that can be done to get help to these homeless children and the parents.
Weak and poorly designed government antipoverty policies play a major role in the high U.S. child poverty rate (Sherman, 1999). Within the United States the government has been slow to give access to any type of assistants to some families that are homeless and have no money to provide food for their family. Over 15 million American children live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level, which is $22,050 a year for a family of four (National Center for Children in Poverty, 2010). The request for help for food has risen 20% in 2008. There are many times that most food programs have not had the food to help all the people that are hungry and have had to turn them away without helping them. In 2009 the people that had health insurance decreased 1.5 million people from 2008. The children that are in poverty have little to no healthcare at all. This is the time that the children really need the type of healthcare that the government can provide. In 2009, 10.0 percent (7.5 million) of children under 18 were without health insurance, while the uninsured rate for children in poverty (15.1 percent) was greater than the rate for all children (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). But the waiting list for government healthcare assistance is high and the government does not have the manpower to be able to interview the children and parents. As there are many health problems that homeless children have because of not have the right nutrition that is needed for their body’s to grow.
Poverty can and most of the time plays a major role in a child’s learning capabilities and also contribute to the emotional and social problems. Children are not supposed to be under the emotional and social stress that is caused by living in poverty, as they are to be able to play and learn without any distractions and worrying about where their next meal is going to come from. The poverty stricken families do not get to pick where they live, as if they could pick I am sure it would be a nice house with a white picket fence. Many of the families that...
