I think many who suffer with downs syndrome can become sad or depressed because they are picked on and become to feel as if they are outsiders. Also they may be100% happy because they do not understand what is going on. As long as they are well cared for it is possible for them to live a long happy life :) Downs Syndrome can also have an emotional effect on parents. Theycan become very emotionally distraught. All parents want is their child to be able to live a normal life, messing around and playing with the other kids. Knowing that this won't happen can make them very sad, and also very angry. Parents are protective over their children, and when they see them being picked on it does NOT sit well. I could go on and on about how this but i won't.... but yeah, Downs Syndrome has quite a few emotional effects
Thank you for your answer. I see that you meant bullying "haloyeah". I shall include this. Do you think that someone who knows that they have downs syndrome would have low self esteem because they believe they aren't as good as everybody else? Equally what do you think their confidence levels would be like knowing that they have special needs? Or do you think this would have no affect at all?
That's a cause you're suggesting there. An emotional effect would be developing PTSD because you fought in a war or feeling insecure about yourself because you're gay.
I'm sorry I'm not trying to pick a fight I'm just struggling with a tough assignment.
I don't know the effects, but I know that it is caused by abnormal chromosomal count. If you do not inherit all 23 pairs of chromosomes you are nearly 100% likely to have down syndrome.
Alright then, let me be clear with everyone, please stop arguing or take your arguments off the board.
I would say how discriminated they get.
That's not an emotional effect.
It is because he or she feels
Yea thanks I know that too
