Historical and International Perspectives of Childhood

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

    Abstract

    We all see children in different ways. Our ideas are shaped by our culture, by tradition, philosophical invention, religious innovation, scientific discovery and/or cultural colonisation. Our views affect the way we treat children and the way in which children are treated shapes the way children behave, so our views are self-reinforcing. They also tend to be reinforced as we are surrounded by people with similar views, so we tend not to analyse, reflect about, or question them.This chapter is intended as an aid to reflecting on how you and your clients view children. The most basic variables are whether people see the child as the agent and inheritor of its own development or as an object to be shaped for defined purposes and whether the child is trusted or mistrusted as the agent of its destiny.
