This conceptual paper discusses the characteristics of an effective rehabilitation programme based on family care for children who conflict with the laws. The authors believe that it is necessary to explain the programme as it can assist members of the public, in particular, practitioners (i.e., probation officer, counsellor) who administering and conducting the programme understand the meaning, principles, approach, perspectives and methods of the program. The programme is essential to respond to the alarming increase in the number of children conflicting with the laws. Section 91 (b) of the Child Act of 2001 gazetted that children are placed under the care of a responsible family or guardian/relatives that are considered fit to perform the care. Besides, under the Section of 93 (1) the Court for Children also can supplement injunction order for full responsibility and active participation of the families in rehabilitation the child.
