The constitutional parent :rights, responsibilities, and the enfranchisement of the child

In this book, the author challenges the notion that parental rights have a long-standing legal pedigree. What is deeply rooted in our legal tradition and social conscience is the idea that the state entrusts parents with custody of the child, and it does so only as long as parents meet their fiduciary duty to serve the developmental needs of the child.
