Synopsis

-- Research developed from recent children's acts

-- Challenges conventional idea of children as 'lesser' adults.

Contesting Childhood draws on work from within the developing field of childhood studies in examining theoretical and policy driven understandings of the current position of children in society. Through an analysis of policy reforms and professional initiatives within educational child care and legal contexts, the author examines different, potentially competing viewpoints of childrens social position. Chapters are devoted to a number related themes, including child policy and moral ambiguity, the limits to child protection, the individualisation of schooling and childhood and citizenship.
