This chapter continues the theme of chapter one in examining the changing nature of the adult-child relationship as it helped to underpin the post-war social democratic family ideal. The chapter focuses on the social-psycho impact of the evacuation, the influence of the debate around the 'problem family' in relation to social democracy, and the Children Act, 1948, for the care of children in care. These topics are discussed in relation to the lessons they provided for policy developments concerning the post-war family and the parent-child relations that were seen to be integral to the psychological health of the family as a social institution and to that of its individual members.

Keywords:   evacuation, problem family, Children Act 1948, social democracy, social-psycho
