Story
Introduction
These days I ply my trade as a writer but, until a year ago, I worked as editor for the British Association for Early Childhood Education, producing publications that promote good practice in early childhood care and education. Prior to that, I did the same for the National Early Years Network (now sadly defunct). I was introduced to children's rights through freelance work for Save the Children back in the 1990s and have been keenly interested ever since. In 2007 I completed an MA in childhood studies (focusing on children's rights and the sociology of childhood) at the Institute of Education in London. I now concentrate on writing about young children's rights (plus the odd piece of fluff here and there - well, gotta have some light relief). I am a core supporter of the Children Are Unbeatable! Alliance, the national coalition seeking an end to legalised physical punishment of children in the UK.
