1.1: Perceptions of children and childhood – Investigate

[Video of tutor]

We are going to take a close look at the cultural context of children’s lives. We all come from different cultures; every culture is different and affects our experiences, and how we react to those experiences. This exercise is designed to bring out key cultural issues which we will consider in later sessions. 

In this exercise we are going to share how our societies view childhood in their cultural contexts, and the different celebrations and rites of passage for children.
