The Children's Home by Charles Lambert Book Summary:
In a sprawling estate Morgan Fletcher, the disfigured heir to a fortune of mysterious origins, spends his days in quiet study, avoiding his reflection in mirrors and the lake at the end of his garden. Two children, Moira and David, appear, and Morgan gives them free reign of the mansion he shares with his housekeeper Engel. Then more children begin to show up. They make bizarre discoveries in the mansion attics, and seem to disappear into the hidden rooms of the estate-- and perhaps into the hidden corners of Morgan's mind.

House of Commons - Education Committee: Residential Childrens' Homes - HC 716 by Great Britain: Parliament: House of Commons: Education Committee Book Summary:
In this report the Education Committee recommends that children in care should be found residential homes in their own areas and local authorities should ensure that they have enough suitable placements to make this possible. The Committee was concerned at the number of children being placed in homes far from their own communities and families, and the Government should look at the impact of introducing a 20 mile limit on placements to increase incentives on local authorities to develop more facilities. It is also a matter of great concern that children are being placed in homes located in unsuitable and dangerous areas. The Government must act if its latest reforms do not adequately address this problem. The report also calls for: better training and development of the workforce in children's homes to ensure that staff and managers have the skills and outlook to create a culture which promotes the safety and welfare of children living in them; a national protocol that allows children's homes to deal with incidents of challenging behaviour to avoid the over-criminalisation of children; children to be given a greater role in selecting residential care workers.
Working in Children's Homes by Dorothy Whitaker,Lesley Archer,Leslie Hicks Book Summary:
Working in Children s Homes is one of an important series of books on residential care based on research sponsored by the Department of Health. This book draws on extensive research conducted over a three-year period. The authors address the challenges and complexities facing those who work with and in children s homes.

Characteristics of good practice are named, and factors which facilitate good practice and good outcomes are identified. Valuable recommendations are made for * implementing and modifying procedures to improve working practices * staff selection and training * support required by staff groups * procedures and communication channels in the larger organisation and surrounding networks Working in Children s Homes provides a comprehensive commentary on the nature of care and working practices related to children s homes.It is essential reading for all those concerned with the care of children and young people in residential settings.
Cincinnati's General Protestant Orphan Home by Christine Hall,Natasha Rezaian Book Summary:
In 1849, a cholera epidemic devastated Cincinnati, taking the lives of 4,114 residents. The First German Protestant Aid Association proposed creating a home for the orphaned children and established the German General Protestant Orphan Asylum in Mount Auburn. In 1851, the annual Orphan Feast and parade began and was one of the largest one-day festivals in Cincinnati for 137 years. In 1949, the desire to move the children from the city to the country drove the purchase of 60 acres in Anderson. The orphanage's name changed to Beech Acres after the beech trees lining the property. In the 1980s, with the need to serve children in a community setting, Beech Acres Parenting Center closed its residential services and expanded into the community and schools with parenting programs, classes, mental health services, foster care, and parent coaching to strengthen families for children.

Parents' Jobs and Children's Lives by Toby Lee Parcel,Elizabeth G. Menaghan Book Summary:
Parents' Jobs and Children's Lives considers the effects of parental working conditions on children's cognition and social development. It also investigates how parental work affects the home environments that parents create for their children, and how these home environments influence the children directly. The theoretical underpinnings of the book draw from both sociology and economics; in addition, the authors make use of literature derived from developmental psychology. Theoretically eclectic, they rely on the personality and social structure framework developed by Melvin Kohn and his colleagues, on arguments regarding the importance of family social capital developed by James Coleman, as well as on ideas from Gary Becker's "new home economics" as guides to model specification. The empirical basis for Parcel and Menaghan's study is a series of multivariate analyses using data drawn from the 1986 and 1988 waves of the National Longitudinal Survey's Child-Mother data set. This data set matches longitudinal data on mothers, derived from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, with data on the children of these mothers born as of 1986. Children aged 3 to 6 were given age-appropriate developmental assessments every two years in order to assess the influence of parental work on short-term changes in their cognition and social behavior. The authors also devote considerable attention to the effects of fathers' work and family structure on the well-being of their children. Parcel and Menaghan's work brings evidence to bear on both the theoretical perspectives guiding the analyses and on current policy debates regarding the nexus of work and family.
Children's Human Rights by Mark Ensalaco,Linda C. Majka Book Summary:
Children's human rights are regularly violated around the world. We hear about graphic examples including child soldiers, child prostitutes, and children sold into slavery, but hungry, sick, and orphaned children are equally at risk and more prevalent. In the United States, children suffer similar abuses, but some are unique to the U.S. justice system. Unlike most of the rest of the world, the U.S. is a well-developed western nation in which juvenile offenders can be tried as adults and sentenced to death. This book brings together a wide array of original essays from a variety of academic and practitioner perspectives on human rights and the status of children. The details are disturbing; the message, powerful: We must vigorously extend the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to the most vulnerable humans of all--the children of the world, starting at home in the United States.

Welcome Home, Forever Child by Christine Mitchell Book Summary:
Finally....a book that genuinely celebrates a young child joining their forever family past infancy. With its touching message of love and reassurance, and whimsical illustrations, Welcome Home, Forever Child is sure to be cherished by children and parents alike. While best suited to children ages two to eight, this gem will undoubtedly be enjoyed by older children as well. Most children’s adoption books reflect infant adoptions, and may not be appropriate for the older child who spent their early years in foster care or an orphanage. Welcome Home, Forever Child is a much needed book that social workers and therapists will want to recommend to families who adopted their child past the age of two. The book helps parents reassure children of their permanent place in the new family, and of how much they are wanted and loved. It will also make a very special and meaningful keepsake gift for a child upon joining his or her new family, upon finalizing the adoption, or upon the anniversary of either event. READ WHAT TOP ADOPTION AND PARENTING EXPERTS ARE SAYING ABOUT WELCOME HOME, FOREVER CHILD: “I truly enjoyed reading this book. Children will love the pictures and delightful rhymes. This book helps adopted kids to celebrate life and activities in their adoptive home while providing a framework to understand their infancy in another place. This book will be useful in helping children bond to adoptive parents.” – Foster Cline, M.D., co-author with Jim Fay – Parenting with Love and Logic and Parenting Teens with Love and Logic “A great way to help young children to understand what adoption and forever means in their lives. Parents and children will love to see the many firsts they will share while grieving the ones they missed. Fun illustrations and the rhyming cadence are sure to delight the preschool set.” - Regina M. Kupecky, LSW - co-author with Gregory Keck - Adopting the Hurt Child and Parenting the Hurt Child “This book provides reassurance to children and parents that a lifetime of important memories can be created regardless of the age at which a child joins his or her forever family. The rhymes and delightful illustrations will appeal to children from toddler age through middle childhood.” – Mary Hopkins-Best – Toddler Adoption: The Weaver’s Craft
Children at Home and in Day Care by Alison Clarke-Stewart,Christian P. Gruber,Linda May Fitzgerald Book Summary:
Psychologists have always been interested in how children's development is related to their early experience. From their first studies of "maternal deprivation" to their latest investigations of "within-family variance," psychologists have probed the effects of children's early lives. While researchers have been tracking down answers to questions about early experience, however, the questions have kept one step ahead of them. In the beginning, it seemed enough to ask about the mother's influence on the child. Later, it was found necessary to include the father, and still later, siblings. But even as psychologists broadened their search to include the entire family, the ecology of early childhood shifted to include those outside the family -- in nursery school and day care, with nannies and peers. Today, in this society, even the youngest children live in complex worlds of home and beyond. Taking a look at the complex worlds of contemporary preschoolers, the authors question how the components of these worlds contribute to children's development. Some of the questions they pose include: * Do mothers have as significant an influence on children who spend time every day with another caregiver as they do on children who are home all day? * How predictive of development are children's experiences in nonfamilial caregiving environments? * Do experiences in these other environments have the same links to development as similar experiences at home? * Does knowing about children's experiences in both home and daycare environments increase our ability to predict their development? The answers to these questions are not readily available in the existing research literature. Nevertheless, they are important to those who would understand the context of child development, either as a window into human development or as a reflection of contemporary childhood.

Child Welfare: Child placement and children away from home by Nick Frost Book Summary:
This collection focuses on child welfare in its specific sense: welfare and social interventions with children and young people undertaken by State bodies or NGO's. The term 'child welfare' is deployed differently in diverse international settings. In the United Kingdom child welfare tends to refer to individualised programmes for children who have experienced problems in their lives. In India, to take a contrasting example, it can also refer to major housing and nutrition programmes. This collection takes an inclusive approach to international perspectives.The collection is completed by a new general introduction by the editor, individual volume introductions, and a full index.Titles also available in this series include, Medical Sociology (November 2004, 4 Volumes, 495) and the forthcoming collection Health Care Systems (2005, 3 Volumes, c.395).
