The second chapter of Part Four of the book considers a case in which a fire broke out in the public housing apartment of a woman who had locked her children in when she left for work. Is this the story of a neglectful mother? What is the connection between the fire and poverty? What does a practice of standing by service users look like in such a case? Responding to this incident by means of community development takes into consideration the structural barriers that parents face and challenges the automatic response that blames mothers for acting neglectfully.
