This booklet is for parents and carers. Its aim is to help them know when the law has something to say about their families’ day-to-day lives. Equally important, it helps them know the limits of the law. It is a reminder that whilst law permeates parents’ and children’s lives to an unprecedented degree, it must work alongside parents to foster healthy and effective families. It is for families who raise children, helping and guiding them to adulthood.
