Where the Bad Things are: The pathologising of childhood
Childhood is the location of immense anxiety for those who aren’t children. All the fears and hatreds we cannot ourselves bear as adults, we give to children. If a distressed or disturbed child is often the one calling for help for his or her family, what does that mean when childhood itself is depicted as disturbed?
Stephen Wright manages a service that intervenes with men with a history of violent and abusive behaviour. Once upon a time he worked extensively in early childhood education.
