Children hold a special place in our society. They evoke in us our most basic instincts to nurture and protect. We want them to grow up healthy, happy and safe and emerge from childhood as confident young adults who will, in turn, nurture their own children.
Our society takes seriously the need to have systems and institutions in place that will promote the development and well‐being of children. At the heart of these structures lie the family and the community. Families are supported by more formal systems and structures – schools, health care and recreation. Organizations that safeguard children from abuse and neglect are at the outermost edge of the spectrum.
