This chapter examines the status of child welfare from 1918 to 1945, which was known to be a period of economic and political crises. Similar to Chapter 2, this chapter provides a brief background of child welfare, where most of the sources were the annual reports of the School Medical Service and the Ministry of Health. The health of school children during this time is scrutinized, and the Child Guidance Movement is introduced. One section focuses on the changing perspectives on juvenile delinquency, where the 1933 Children and Young Persons Act is introduced. The chapter ends with a section on child welfare during the war.

Keywords:   annual reports, School Medical Service, Ministry of Health, health, Child Guidance Movement, juvenile delinquency
