Abstract: Child abuse and maltreatment have been described as wicked problems. A type of problem that is highly consequential, has shifting definitions, is difficult to solve, and poses risks for those who attempt. As a result, making decisions to prevent or stop child abuse and maltreatment often involves acting under uncertainties. To deal with uncertainties and to act responsibly, care workers need a reliable frame of reference. Too often these heuristics are grounded in ideologies that remain unquestioned in the everyday of care provision. The presentation acknowledges the need to act under uncertainty, spotlights the role of ideologies, and at the same time makes an appeal for a clear mandate: children need to be directly addressed if child well-being is in question.
