Children’s Bureau. For children refusing more benevolent forms of child saving, however, a reforming institution of a legal nature was instituted. 43 But the juvenile court failed to produce the reduction in delinquency for which its founders, including Julia Lathrop, first chief of the Children’s Bureau, had hoped. Turning to science for help, progressives hoped to solve the most difficult child cases. The “scientific” approach to children’s problems was not altogether new in the early years of the twentieth century when reformers became disappointed with the juvenile court system and, at the outset, science and social reform mingled well.

This treatment modality, Healy believed, would unearth deeply buried emotions that offered explanations for delinquent behavior. Each child had a unique “story”; by exposing it, behavior would change, and juvenile delinquency could be prevented. 46 Thus, by the early twentieth century, psychiatry not only began paying more attention to children but also shifted its focus from institutional to outpatient care, from curative to preventive treatment modalities. These changes were particularly critical as the search for workable solutions to juvenile delinquency proceeded.

37 Adults should therefore resist the temptation to impose uniformity on educational requirements and goals. Through his lectures to diverse audiences, including schoolteachers, Hall’s “scientific” pedagogy became enormously popular. His views, however, as they related to education, rested more on the intellectual tradition of romanticism than on either older precepts of intellectual development or science. Child study organizations, in fact, were suspected by some, including John Dewey, of promoting little more than sentimentality about children under the guise of science.
