This book develops a comprehensive and foundational account of children's moral and constitutional rights in connection with state decisions to create or dissolve legal and social relationships between children and adults. The theory creates a framework for critiquing laws governing parentage (paternity, maternity, adoption), custody of children by parents and non-parents, child maltreatment intervention, and termination of parental rights.
