Example text

Increasingly, however, and particularly with the development and influence of postmodernist theory, some historians have become interested in what children and childhood have meant to adults, how those attitudes changed and developed, and ways in which they can be analysed, particularly drawing on representations of childhood over time. It is this aspect I want to focus on primarily here, while at the same time acknowledging that all the categories outlined above are to a great extent interrelated in any discussion.

Not surprisingly, these new religious beliefs brought about a shift in attitudes to child-rearing and, by implication, to the importance of childhood generally. Arguably, childhood during this period became a battleground where parents fought to inculcate morality and good behaviour in a committed struggle to save the souls of their children (Demos 1970; Greven 1970). These fundamental changes in religious belief and their impact on behaviour and child-rearing undoubtedly had a considerable effect on the nascent bourgeoisie from the time of the Reformation onwards.

Incorporating adulthood within the study of childhood helps puncture the myths surrounding maturity. It encourages a more subtle and nuanced view of the many roles and identities humans adopt during a lifespan in work, in school, in family and in play. In each of these activities and settings, children’s lives are largely regulated by adults. Childhood Studies can help breakdown some of the boundaries between various academic and professional constructions of adult–child relationships, for example, in terms of care and nurture, or dialogue and communication, or learning and teaching, or conflict and defiance, or control and power.
