These strategies are known as policies and can be inform of legal or social policies but aim at causing parity in distributing of resources in the making the conditions of life good for the residents (Dean, 2006). Social policies in a country helps people cope with different situations in the world and ensure that people are in a position. This means that social policies are in the form of guidelines, legislations, principles or activities through which people perform duties that are make their lives bearable in different situations. A social policy is one, which helps the public well-being by initiating practices that create orderliness in living. Social policies in the different countries are cover different sectors of the lives which may include, health, housing, security, justice, inequalities and education (Dean, 2006). In United States of America (USA), there are different policies that help people in country to coordinate their lives in ways that improve the lives of the people in the society. This ensures that people in the country have conducive environment for doing different activities in the society and are in a position to enhance their lives through such. There are policies in US that address health, housing, education, children protection and other areas of life of the citizen. The focus of this work is on the Child Welfare Legislation of the US, which incorporate different things that affect the children as from the effects from the adults. The Legislation came in place because of increased injustices that were happening against children who were underprivileged in different ways and could not have anyone who could support their plight (Theoklitou, Kabitisis & Kabitsi, 2011). The legislation has undergone various amendments to ensure that all the children are well addressed as per the evolving issues of life so that it can prevent any form of these issues in the US (Crosson-Tower, 2008). Child abuse happens when adults especially the parents or caretakers mistreat or neglects a child through the physical, emotional or mental actions, which lead to discomfort of such a child. For this reason, the government makes laws that regulate parents and protect the children from the violence and the violation of the rights of the children in the country of implementation. In US, there were cases of child abuse that went unreported to the federal government and these left children to suffer at the hands of those who tormented them. However, the case of an eight-year-old young girl, Mary Ellen, who suffered at the hands of her foster parents who would whip her daily, marked the end of these unreported cases. When some concerned individuals reported the case, the court charged the foster mother who tortured the child and put her in prison for a term of one year (Findlaw, 2013). In the past, there were various issues, which faced children in the society but there were no ways through which protection for the children could be achieved. To end the various issues that ended up distracting the peace of children and the many abuses that were happening to children who were not covered within the federal legislations. These abuses could happen in the families or at the community or national levels in which the affected would encounter struggles that would not be simple address with the existing laws.
