  1. Toward a reorientation of values and practice in child welfare.

    Article - En anglais

    The failure of the child welfare system to adequately protect and promote the best interests of children stems from social and cultural values over-emphasizing parental rights and devaluing children.

    This is the result of longstanding cultural norms aided by post-modernist trends.

    Greater emphasis on the best interests of the child and practical measures in dependency proceedings will improve case outcomes, and indirectly contribute toward a shift in cultural values.

    However, only effective prevention measures aimed at enhancing the crucial role of parents will have a widespread effect in reducing child abuse and neglect.

    The enunciation of basic parental standards through parental licensure and national economic policies favoring parental commitment to children are such measures.
