          While working in the life-space of children and youth it is hard to imagine an interaction that does not contain some level of caring or love that guides interventions and interactions while being governed by professional boundaries. Caring and love in practice requires a level of reflection that acts as a check to ensure these boundaries are adhered to. This article is a reflexive moment in an experienced Child and Youth Care Practitioner’s career when a youth who she had cared for was involved in a motor vehicle accident and died.
