Teenager at risk
Case Study Assignment
Anayah is 14 years old. She is Black British, born to Caribbean parents, Yusef and Shenaz. Yusef (father) and Shenaz (mother) converted from Jehovah’s Witnesses to Islam when Anayah was 11 years old. They have one other child, their son Karim who is 9 years old.
Until recently Anayah was a very outgoing and sociable girl who was excelling in her studies at school. In the last three months her teachers have noticed that she has become defiant and will not comply with what is asked of her. She has also had periods of non-attendance and they have noticed that her absence is always on a Thursday. As a result, her grades have fallen.
Her parents contacted the school as they were becoming concerned about her behaviour at home and wondered if she was mixing with what they called “bad company”. They were not aware that she had not been attending school on Thursdays. Anayah is refusing to dress modestly or to wear her hijab and spends much of her time on her laptop or phone. In a recent incident, Shenaz took Anayah’s phone from her which resulted in a big argument and when she swore at her mother, Yusef slapped Anayah across her face. Anayah went missing last Friday. The police located her at a known flat that is used to buy and sell drugs and returned her home the next day. Anayah admitted to being in love with a 30 year old man, Ben and said that she wanted to be with him as he loved her but she refused to give any details about him. She shared with her family support worker that she has been sexually active with Ben and wants to have a baby for him.
