child abduction

Child abduction is a serious problem in today's world. Abduction by strangers is not the only type of abduction. Parental abduction is a large and growing form of child abduction. The website's goal is to provide a major resource of information for parents who have been victimized by the child abductor. You may be living a parents worst nightmare, but you are not alone. Information empowers and breeds hope. Never give up.

The functioning of 17 children who had been abducted by one parent but subsequently returned was examined. The parent to whom the child was returned completed a behavior rating scale on the child for each of three time periods: pre-abduction, immediately post-abduction, and follow-up (the present time). The parents also completed a measure regarding the coping strategy they utilized while the child was missing and a measure of their own functioning at each of three times: pre-abduction, during the abduction, and follow-up.

The results indicated that the child was rated as functioning worse immediately post-abduction than at pre-abduction and at follow-up was functioning between that reported at pre-abduction and post-abduction. However, the level of maladjustment was not in the severe range at any of the assessments. Parents reported using a problem-focused or action style of coping. Parents also reported that their psychological functioning decreased during abduction and then improved at follow-up. Again, functioning was not in the severe range at any assessment. Variables such as age at the time of abduction and length of abduction were only minimumally related to parent or child functioning.

Everyone have their favourite past time like something happen about themselves in 1day, that they like most. It is also happen to me. My favourite past time is my family and i were going over sea, Italy. I was very happy because can follow my father to go to Italy for work in 2 years. We went to Italy in January 1996 and went back to Malaysia in December 1997, I was 8years old in that time. We were so excited to fly with MAS. We had a special seat that the government spent to our seat. The aeroplane was stop at Frankfurt, Germany for a few hours because we must change the flight with aeroplane from Germany. We were arriving at Rome, Italy in the morning and we went to the hotel before we got a house for living there. My mum was pregnant 5month while we were going there and my younger sister was born in Italy. At Italy, there had 4 season such as summer, autumn, spring and winter. I like when in the spring and winter season. The weather was so cold when in winter. 1day, snows were drop at my home in the town. It was so beautiful. I went to many places at Italy like PISA, Geneva, Rome, Toronto, Venice and the other beautiful place. My sibling and i were studying at school at hat the government spent for the children who follow their father going there. Our uniform was freedom and we also learn how to swim, how to play basketball and had IT class. My sibling and i were happy because met many new friends along lived at Italy. When we were already going back to Malaysia, we were upset because we want to leave Italy in that time. We felt like to live more day that. That’s my favourite past time.
