"This book explores the values, ideas and structures that promote justice for children and families, and it does so from a developmental perspective. This is because, children come into the world completely helpless, and only very gradually develop the capacity to look after themselves. For at least a quarter of their natural lifespan, they depend on families and communities to meet their needs, protect their interests and nurture their potential"--Provided by publisher.
