Urban Children: A Challenge and an Opportunity.
Dallape, Fabio
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v3 n2 p283-94 May 1996
Proposes four categories of children in difficult circumstances: (1) abandoned or orphaned; (2) independent, maintaining family contact; (3) working, living with families; and (4) living with economically deprived families. Suggests that rapid urbanization, family environment, global economy, and educational deprivation contribute to difficulties. Recommends an action-oriented approach to social services, requiring retraining, social welfare reorganization, and community-based services. (KDFB)
