If a primary caretaker has a negative attitude toward their child it increases the risk that their child will grow up hostile towards others. And it’s not just aggression toward others that results from child abuse; a large amount of children raised by abusive parents also harm themselves. The reason for this negative behavior is the children don’t learn appropriate techniques for handling life’s disappointments. If you aren’t raised with coping skills, you’re much more likely to act “inappropriately,” then if you have developed more reasonable approaches. The affect of poor parenting as reported by Dr. Geoffrey Dahmer in “The Bully Papers,” is that everyone gets the child they deserve.

    The primary caretaker is singular, but their child is plural. Not grammatical.

    There can never be an amount of children because children are not sold by the pound.

    It’s not grammatically to address readers as YOU, but it’s not permitted in academic writing. Purge all YOU. Also, the word for all comparisons is THAN.

    Affect is a verb; you’ve used it as a noun. Everyone is singular but THEY is plural. Not grammatical.
