Summary

Summary

Gain insight into the practical realities and theoretical conflicts of ensuring a safe childhood for all!

This comprehensive appraisal of children's rights encompasses legal, psychological, sociological, policy, and child advocacy issues. Children's Rights: Policy and Practice addresses the situation of minors at home, at school, in foster care, and in residential facilities. Throughout the book, the author clearly presents the practical and ethical dilemmas inherent in balancing a child's right to self-determination against the same child's need to be protected.

Children's Rights begins with a concise history of the children's liberation and child protective movements and the legislation and court decisions they spawned. It analyzes how these rights compete with parents'rights, legitimate government concerns, and socioeconomic realities. The chapter on advocacy offers effective new strategies and little-known legal precedents that give a much-needed advantage to parents battling to ensure the educational rights of children with special needs.

Children's Rights offers in-depth discussion of the essential issues, including: the causes of abuse and neglect help for families at risk techniques for case and cause advocacy children's rights in schools and day care the role and function of child protective services and the juvenile justice system family and individual therapy effective social policy to protect and care for children Balancing theoretical considerations, solid information, and practical advice, Children's Rights is an essential resource for child welfare workers, attorneys, academicians, parents, and social workers.
