This chapter considers how families and the state interact in facilitating human development across childhood, with a particular focus on health, education and social development. Being healthy and educated, having the personal and social skills for mutually caring relationships, and playing a satisfying and useful role in society are all essential aspects of human development. Poverty, low education, ill-health, limited access to services and a lack of civil and political freedoms undermine human freedom, dignity and development.
