Abstract/Summary This chapter explores the intersection between the development of ideas for reforming childhood offenders and the removal of Aboriginal children in colonial Australia. It argues that significant numbers of Aboriginal children were separated from their family groups as a result of this ideology. While European children who were subjected to reforming efforts usually had to be demarcated as vulnerable by meeting a number of criteria that stressed their vulnerability and the likelihood of them becoming criminals, Aboriginal children were subjected to reformatory efforts solely as a result of their Aboriginality.
