1. Children: Our Most Important Resource A Brief History of Child Welfare Concept of “childhood” relatively new; at one time children were given similar responsibilities that adults had but very few of the rights. A. Abortion, Infanticide and Abandonment 1. Abortion widely accepted in ancient societies 2. If abortion failed, many would resort to infanticide a. Some would kill their child if they could not afford needs for the baby b. Some would kill their child when they had too many female children c. Some would kill the child if they were sickly d. Some societies would kill children to maintain a manageable population 3. If a parent did not want to murder their child, they would abandon the child a. Basically abandonment would cause death because no one else would take the child in b. Even in the late 1800s in NY, parents would leave their children on the streets B. Child Labor and Education 1. Children expected to work for their parents and carry on the parents’ trade a. Usually they were not given a choice in the matter b. Usually worked for free because parents felt like their kids owed them 2. Late 1800s and early 1900s child labor was finally starting to be addressed a. Reformers tried to change the way people treated children b. Thought it was okay for them to work for their parents, but free from:  Unsuitable wages  Unreasonable hours  Unhealthy and hazardous conditions C. Responsibility for Children 1. Children considered as their parents’ property 2. Out-of-Home Care a. Institutions created so that children would have a place to go when their parents were not fit b. Orphanages were not always the most suitable place for a child c. Orphanages fell out of favor and Foster Homes started to become popular; research about child development brought about the recognition that a family environment was necessary 3. Day-care a. Parents could no longer leave their child unattended D. Modern Day Services 1. Priorities a. Family preservation - keeping families intact b. Permanency planning – finding permanent arrangements as early as possible for children with absent or unsuitable parents 2. Issues and Criticisms a. Receiving enough funding has always been an issue b. Critics say child services are missing a personal touch in their efforts 3. “Children are the most valuable resource!” a. Children truly are our future, they must grow into healthy adults for the sake of the future
