Abstract

This article critiques the rise of parenting orders in Scotland within New Labour’s self-styled model of 'respect' and 'responsibility'. It examines the emergence of parenting orders in Scotland, which became available in April 2005, and argues that Scottish local authorities are sceptical of an approach they perceive as an ideological and legislative mix premised on punitive notions of individual responsibility and justice.
