Childcare issues continue to occupy space in our national papers. Some of the concerns raised can be viewed as having a negative focus in that they describe situations in which a child has suffered death, injury or abuse. It is also debated as to whether or not judicial responses to such cases are "out of step" with expressed natural feeling about such cases.
