Togetherness and Play under the Same Roof: Children's Perceptions about Families
Oliveira-Formosinho, Julia
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v17 n2 p233-248 Jun 2009
The purpose of the research study presented in this article is to look at the ways that a specific group of children think about their families and to develop contextualized methods for listening to children's perspectives about their families. It starts with a brief presentation of the theoretical and pedagogical context where the study has been developed. It follows a review of relevant research on children's perceptions about families. The presentation of the empirical study encompasses the methodology, data analysis and data interpretation. Final comments highlight some shared saliences in the thinking of the children of this group about family concepts and emphasise children's desire, expectations and pleasure on parent-child play situations. (Contains 1 figure and 12 notes.)
