• Child abuse (S. Pfahl : «The discovery of childabuse»)
- The perception of child abuse as deviance is a recent phenomenon
Periods: Ancient to the mid 19th century
- English common law gave guardians limitless power over children
Periods: Mid 19th- 20th century
- In the USA, the House of refuge Movement sought to stem the deviant behaviour of city
dwellers by removing young people in danger of corruption
