This book challenges the ideologies and policies that presently
shape child welfare services. It argues that caring for children is
work of the highest priority. Neglect, the authors argue, should no
longer be a reason for investigating and apprehending children, and
the entire resources of child wefare agencies should be devoted to
assisting and supporting parents. Further, they propose that child
abuse be reclassified as a criminal offence and handled by the
criminal justice system. Finally the book suggests that community
ownership of child welfare is important in order to provide an
opportunity for social learning.
