"All children deserve the opportunity to achieve their full potential... If they are denied the opportunity and support they need to achieve these outcomes, children are at an increased risk ... not only an impoverished childhood but also of disadvantage and social exclusion in adulthood. Abuse and neglect pose particular problems."
