Family Relationship · Non-fiction
Statistics show that nearly half the children who are killed by their parents each year are killed after having come to the attention of child welfare agencies. The protection of these children demands moving them out of harm's way.
Using the true story of a murdered child as a point of departure, a leading expert on family violence argues that society's first priority must be protecting children rather than preserving families which calls for a radically new child welfare system.
