Some wise words from Ireland’s Children’s Minister

The Irish Times quotes Ireland’s Minister for Children, Frances Fitzgerald, as saying:

“In finalising the children’s rights amendment, the first significant challenge is finding a wording that will find balance, finding the blend that allows the essential quiet revolution in child protection without creating constitutional hostages to fortune.”

“The second major challenge will be one of communication, as most people are not immersed in the realities of childcare and child protection.”

Spot on Frances.
