Childhood in "Crisis"? By Phil Scraton. Childhood in "Crisis"? By Phil Scraton. Childhood’ is in ‘crisis’, children lack appropriate discipline, parental control or professional guidance. The political message, broadly consensual across the main parties, is that we (meaning the collective of responsible adulthood) have become too soft, too understanding and too tolerant.

Childhood' in 'Crisis'. This timely collection of essays raises not just one, but many question marks, about the supposed crisis in British childhood which has been widely held to characterise the end of the twentieth century. Following the murder of little James Bulger in 1993 by two 10 year old children there was a groundswell of political and populist concern about the state of the nation's children and their loss of 'natural' innocence.

Based on multi-disciplinary academic research and professional practice, 'Childhood' in 'Crisis'? is conceived as a response to the current political and policy debates which maintain: that 'childhood' is in a state of 'crisis'; that there is a breakdown in discipline, parental or professional guidance; and that children and young people lack any sense of social responsibility. On the one hand, there is the reaffirmation of 'the family', a commitment to harsher policies and tougher legislation; on the other, children and young people are systematically denied rights and are increasingly marginalized and alienated. Providing the central historical and theoretical foundations of contemporary definitions of 'childhood', the authors trace the background to, and justifications of, institutionalised responses. They also examine in detail the expansive media coverage and popular discourses which collectively contextualise legal and policy responses, identifying the James Bulger case as a watershed in UK media coverage
