There had been others who believed that children could be studied historically,
but no one before Aries had made the study of childhood an essential component
for understanding modern western development. And no one else had provided
such a good story. Centuries of Childhood was fertile in controversy at the time.
More significantly it showed scholars that raising pointed questions about
childhood in order to imagine the earliest (and least historically accessible) stage
of life, ...

Margaret Robertson Introduction Normally, we imagine childhood dependency
on family, school, and some form of religion. Put simplistically childhood is the
period of our lives that is largely free of life sustaining responsibilities. Indeed, we
could describe childhood lived experiences (in most of the world's countries) as
part of an age of unchartered innocence. Play, exploration and curiosity of the
mind help children discover the outside world (Cotterell, 1995; Holloway and
Valentine, ...

By looking at American society in this wider context, I began to reflect on the
nature of childhood in a global future. This forced me to think about our
commitments to a certain kind of childhood, how potentially fragile those
commitments really are, and to assess their vulnerability to economic pressures
generally. The question of our ... Nevertheless, in all three essays, I am trying to
imagine childhood in a world context, not governed only by local conditions. I am
also trying to understand ...

“Dr. Leman,” I imagine some of you women are saying, “I would love to talk with
the man in my life about his childhood memories, but I just can't imagine him
being interested in talking about what his life was like when he was a little boy. I
can barely get him to open up about what happened today at work.” Here's a
great way to do it. Share a memory about your childhood and don't tell him up
front the significance of what childhood memories mean. Then ask him if he
remembers an ...

... the way they imagine it. Parents, as well as early childhood educators, need
more training in the ways that children's asynchronous development affects their
growth and achievement. Often times, teachers and parents have unreasonable
expectations of young children because they see one area of growth so far
ahead of another. Standardized Testing Research supports that parents who
suspect their child is gifted often do have children who perform well on
intelligence tests.

For instance, when trying to obtain a confession, law officers may ask a suspect
to imagine having participated in a criminal act. Some mental health
professionals encourage patients to imagine childhood events as a way of
recovering supposedly hidden memories. Surveys of clinical psychologists reveal
that 1 1 percent instruct their clients to "let the imagination run wild," and 22
percent tell their clients to "give free rein to the imagination." Therapist Wendy

New Materialisms and Play Childhood Studies and Play. INTRODUCTION
Imagine a sandbox full of sand and a very young child standing there in front of a
red plastic bucket. The child's hand is grabbing a handful of sand and then slowly
letting it go above the bucket. The light wind carries the grains, spreading them
out across the surface of the sandbox in a wider area: the child's eyes closely
observing the glittering flow of sand, swirling in the wind and catching rays of sun:

... remote unknowability, enviable for their lack of schooling in a culture
dominated by hyperliterate rationalist adults, and in turn idealized as flexible sites
of possible resistance to rationalism (dependence upon systematized thought)
and ideology (thought-systems themselves). Pressing for this idealized position,
we imagine liberating childhood spaces for “children” while at the same time
maintaining limits by controlling approaches to the institutionalized process that
defines children, ...
