Male Child

In this study, we developed a structured risk checklist, the Child Pornography Offender Risk Tool (CPORT), to predict any sexual recidivism among adult male offenders with a conviction for child pornography offenses. We identified predictors of sexual recidivism using a 5-year fixed follow-up analysis from a police case file sample of 266 adult male child pornography offenders in the community after their index offense. In our 5-year follow-up, 29% committed a new offense, and 11% committed a new sexual offense, with 3% committing a new contact sexual offense against a child and 9% committing a new child pornography offense. The CPORT items comprised younger offender age, any prior criminal history, any contact sexual offending, any failure on conditional release, indication of sexual interest in child pornography material or prepubescent or pubescent children, more boy than girl content in child pornography, and more boy than girl content in other child depictions. The CPORT was significantly associated with any sexual recidivism, with moderate predictive accuracy, and thus has promise in the risk assessment of adult male child pornography offenders with further cross-validation.

Sex differences in child well-being develop before birth; boys are more likely to be born prematurely than girls (which can lead to infant death or lasting disability), and male sex is associated with a number of other negative pregnancy outcomes. As they grow up, boys are more likely than girls to have moderate-to-severe developmental delays, and more likely to have a special health care need.1 Over the life course, a number of health and developmental concerns are more prevalent in boys than in girls. For example, the prevalence of autism is four times higher in boys than in girls. Males are diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)more than twice as frequently as females, and generally have poorer self-regulation skills than females of comparable age.

Among black students, the gender gaps in sports participation (favoring males), and in caring about doing well in school (favoring females), are significantly greater than they are within the overall sample. Among Hispanic students, the gender gap in caring about doing well in school is significantly smaller than in the overall sample. Among white students, the gender gap in participation in after-school activities (favoring females) is even greater than it is in the overall sample, and the gender gap in sports participation is smaller (favoring males).

This article explores the diversity in the disclosure process of male survivors of child sexual abuse. Disclosure is a complex process for victims of both genders, however masculine norms and stereotypes have contributed to an environment that often negates the experiences of men. The disclosure process of 17 adult male survivors of child sexual abuse was explored using transcripts of telephone interviews. A combination of two qualitative methodologies, the phenomenological method and interpretive description approach, was used to analyze this secondary data. The results indicated that the majority of the men in the study waited until adulthood to disclose their abuse, with negative stereotypes contributing to their delayed disclosures. In terms of specific experiences with disclosure, the participants found they received both positive and negative responses. These results were consistent with the literature.

This calculator provides body mass index (BMI) and the corresponding BMI-for-age percentile based on CDC growth charts for children and teens ages 2 through 19 years. Because of possible rounding errors in age, weight, and height, the results from this calculator may differ slightly from BMI-for-age percentiles calculated by other programs.

Add this widget to your website to let your audience calculate BMI for children and teens. It will also show the corresponding BMI-for-age percentile on a CDC BMI-for-age growth chart. This calculator is for people 2 through 19 years old. BMI is a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. It is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.

Primary hypothyroidism in the juvenile population generally leads to retardation of linear growth and delay or even arrest of puberty. However, in rare conditions, children with long-standing hypothyroidism present with signs of Van Wyk-Grumbach's syndrome (VWGS) which include juvenile hypothyroidism, delayed bone age, and pseudoprecocious puberty. We report a rare case of prepubertal male child from Asian origin, presented with long-standing untreated hypothyroidism complicated with VWGS and other complications including obesity, short stature, hepatomegaly, asymptomatic mild pericardial effusion, and pituitary hyperplasia.

Hypothyroidism is among the most common endocrine disorders in children. In most of the hypothyroid children sexual development is delayed. However, children with severe long-standing hypothyroidism rarely present with signs of precocious puberty, the Van Wyk-Grumbach syndrome (VWGS) [1, 2]. Sexual precocity is always isosexual, characterized by breast enlargement, multicystic ovaries, and menstrual bleeding in girls and testicular enlargement with minimal penile enlargement in boys [3].

In association with our case, primary hypothyroidism in boys is associated with isosexual incomplete precocious puberty with testicular enlargement but without virilization [14]. The etiology of this unique sexual precocity remains uncertain; Jannini et al. reported direct effect of severe hypothyroidism on the pre-pubertal testis which leads to overproliferation of Sertoli cells and is responsible for the testicular enlargement in males, meanwhile the longer hypothyroidism persists, the greater is the degree of testicular damage [15].

Pituitary enlargement secondary to hypothyroidism is a known but uncommon occurrence, with long-standing hypothyroidism; thyrotroph hyperplasia can result in the expansion of the sella turcica and the enlargement of the pituitary gland [20]. Unlike adults, children rarely have neurologic presentations secondary to sellar expansion [21]. The lack of thyroxine feedback found in uncontrolled primary hypothyroidism leads to elevated levels of TRH which causes both pituitary thyrotroph and lactotroph hypertrophy, increasing the secretion of both TSH and prolactin [22].

5 She gave birth to a male child, who is destined to rule the nations with an iron scepter. Before the dragon could bite and devour her son, the child was whisked away and brought to God and His throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where God had prepared a place of refuge and safety where she could find sustenance for 1,260 days.

In many Asian countries, deeply rooted traditions and a cultural preference for male children, but also discriminatory family and property laws have led to harmful practices which ensure the birth of a male child. These practices include sex selective abortions but also the post-natal killing or neglect of girl babies. Today, because of the deliberate elimination of girls, more than 160 million women are missing on the Asian continent. In India, where the gender ratio is particularly imbalanced, the distorted masculinization of the society accentuates a climate of violence and discrimination against women and girls.

The annihilation of baby girls has additionally been exacerbated with a modern desire for smaller families and new technologies that identify the sex of a fetus. The development of prenatal diagnosis technology has made it even easier to select the sex of the unborn child through the systematic abortion of female fetuses, whilst the desire for smaller families combined with the traditional son preference has steadily increased the demand for prenatal sex selection.

The male reproductive system makes, stores and moves sperm. Testicles produce sperm. Fluid from the seminal vesicles and prostate gland combine with sperm to make semen. The penis ejaculates semen during sexual intercourse.

If the body doesn't produce enough testosterone during fetal development, the result may be impaired growth of the external sex organs. Depending on when hypogonadism develops and how much testosterone is present, a child who is genetically male may be born with:

Klinefelter syndrome. This condition results from a congenital abnormality of the sex chromosomes, X and Y. A male normally has one X and one Y chromosome. In Klinefelter syndrome, two or more X chromosomes are present in addition to one Y chromosome.

The Y chromosome contains the genetic material that determines the sex of a child and related development. The extra X chromosome that occurs in Klinefelter syndrome causes abnormal development of the testicles, which in turn results in underproduction of testosterone.

This condition often corrects itself within the first few years of life without treatment. If not corrected in early childhood, it can lead to malfunction of the testicles and reduced production of testosterone.

Children should drink one cup of water (equal to eight ounces) for each year they are old. For example, if a child is 4 years old, he should drink four cups of water each day. Once a child reaches 8 years old, he should be drinking close to two liters (a little over eight cups) per day and stay at this amount into adulthood. Increasing water dilutes the urine, making it more difficult for bacteria to grow. Monitoring the color of urine in the toilet is a good way to ensure good water intake. Urine should be clear to very pale yellow at each void. Darker urine tells us that the child needs more water.

If the child is uncircumcised, he should practice proper genital hygiene. This means pushing his foreskin back, so he can clean the head of the penis when he is in the shower or bath, just like he would clean any other part of his body. He must also return the foreskin back over the head of the penis once cleaning is complete. It is also important that he pulls his foreskin all the way back before urinating and then pulls it back over when he is done. Not doing this could allow urine to get stuck under the foreskin. When urine gets trapped under the foreskin, bacteria can form and eventually get into the urethra and bladder. 041b061a72
