The language we use about children in care

Word of Mouth

2022

There's an excellent discussion in this Word of Mouth podcast about how children in statutory care are talked about (in the UK but applicable in Australia) in records kept about them, by meeting minute takers, and even in the wider community.

For example, why is it said that children have 'challenging' behaviours when its adults who feel challenged by children's behaviour? What could the child's behaviour be trying to convey to adults that adults are refusing to listening to?
