Free text Presents the ten basic principles that guide Norwegian child welfare practice in the planning for permanent placement of children removed from their families of origin : the right of children to continuity and stability; basing services to children and adolescents on their needs; not their symptomatic behaviour; the right of children to receive assistance when they need it - despite parental wishes or opposition; setting limits to children or adolescent's behaviour in their own or other people's interests; offering children in care a better environment than they had at home; the right of the child to maintain contact with relatives or other secure and significant members of their original environment - cultural, religious, etc; accepting the need and right of the child to participate and share in the formulation of a plan for provisional or permanent arrangements; the child should be able to expect assistance from his/her parents in correcting, within a reasonable time frame, the conditions which resulted in his/her placement; the child should be able to expect to be reintegrated within his family, as soon as possible, when this has not been ruled out; permanent decisions about the child in placement should be taken within as short a time as possible, and at the latest, within two years.
