This chapter considers notions of ‘child, family and social well-being’ and sets out the social values and analytical approach informing the book. It argues for a combined analysis of child, adult, family, and social well-being which draws on quantitative and qualitative social research to inform social policy agendas and critical debates about parental rights and responsibilities. Adults and children experience more changes in family and living arrangements, with a higher incidence of solo living, parental separation, remarriage, re-partnering, and step-families.

Keywords:   children, well-being, social policy, qualitative social research, living arrangements, solo living, parental separation, remarriage, re-partnering, step-families
