within the context of alternative positions, (laissez-faire, state paternalism and
child protection,
defence of birth family and parent rights, children’s rights and child liberation)
and what personal knowledge, values and ideas have shaped your decision?

practice insights, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon, New York, NY : Routledge)

(1991) – you may need to read beyond your text to understand the differences.

about children, families, human rights and the safety of children. You might
want to use the critical reflection model to help you (What? So What? What
now?)

about this topic CRITICALLY. – This is an individual reflection so you can include
