Mainstream discussions about child abuse and neglect remain disconnected from wider appreciation of what harms children and how such issues are related to wider social and economic forces. This paper draws from on-going work on framing and the role of stories in rendering poverty and inequality either irrelevant or invisible and offers some thoughts on how an alternative story needs to be developed and fought for in order to improve children’s welfare and safety.
