A Comparison of Free Time Activity Choices of Third Culture Kids in Albania and Children in the UK
Purdon, Anne
Education 3-13, v46 n2 p218-236 2018
This study aims to consider children's perspectives about free time activity choices. Through the use of drawings, favourite free time activities of third culture kids in Albania are compared with those of children in the UK. The sample comprises four boys and three girls from four to eight years from each country. Further conversations reveal that children mainly initiated the activities themselves and yet often chose activities involving their parents. This study adds to the debate about hearing and responding to children's voices to support them effectively through activity choices. Implications for parents and carers are highlighted.
