Forum discussion

We will now discuss what you read in the previous exercise about perceptions of children and childhood.

  • What do you notice about the words under each heading?
  • Do they reflect negative /positive images?
  • What might this suggest about the community /culture’s beliefs about children?
  • How do the words emphasise the different experiences for children, perhaps because of their race, gender or faith?
  • Why is it important to consider these differences when thinking about child safeguarding?
