Abstract: In this paper, three different circumstances of childhood are discussed through a review of pertinent literature. Cyberbullying has become more prevalent as technology has advanced, and more children are becoming victims of this new trend. It is similar to traditional forms of bullying, but there are some key differences. Homeschooling families have grown in number over the past few decades, but they are still few and far between. There are multiple reasons to homeschool, and it is up to the family to choose if it is the right method for them. In most cases, it seems that homeschoolers excel in academia as well as social activities, despite prevailing stereotypes. Transgender children are a relatively new phenomenon, or at least a newly diagnosed one. As families and doctors are becoming more knowledgeable about gender issues, children are able to express themselves more freely than in past decades. In each of these three circumstances, the role of family is crucial. Children who come from supportive families are generally healthier and happier overall. Children with unsupportive families tend to experience more conflict and may engage in high risk behaviors.
