Children, Family Responsibilities and the State by Craig Lind

Book Description

This book explores the growing interest in the way in which the state polices, and ought to police, families failing in their responsibilities. Reflects on the increasing social science research and growing legal system involvement in the 'problem' of failing families particularly where children are involved Considers topics ranging from the state's attempts to promote responsible parenting by training parents and by punishing them and their children for their children's antisocial behaviour through to its enthusiasm for creating frameworks for better substituted parenting (through fostering and adoption) Evaluates problems from the perspective of both empirical evidence and the practical and ideological ambitions that government policy is attempting to pursue Brings together commentators from a variety of disciplines who all offer a fresh critique on these matters

Regulating Family Responsibilities by Craig Lind Regulating Family Responsibilities, Hardback (June 2011)

Examines understandings of the day to day responsibilities which people undertake within families and the role of the law in the construction of those understandings. This title intends to advance our understanding of the attempts of the law, and its limits, in regulating the responsibilities which family members take for each other.

Taking Responsibility, Law and the Changing Family by Craig Lind Taking Responsibility, Law and the Changing Family, Hardback (December 2010)

Considers the impact that changing family norms has had on the responsibility that the law allocates to people in family relationships. This book explores these social changes and considers the extent to which the law should reflect and direct the changes that have occurred in the family responsibilities that people have undertaken.

Responsibility, Law and the Family by Craig Lind Responsibility, Law and the Family, Hardback (August 2008)

Explores the concept of responsibility in family life, law and practice. This work examines the distinctions between rights, obligations and responsibilities in their moral, social and legal forms. Suitable for researchers and practitioners working in this field, it focuses upon the criminal law relating to children both as offenders and victims.
