So, girls and boys in poor communities have been expected to take on responsibilities early in life and show relatively mature competence in the skills appropriate to their life situation; for example, as domestic workers or street traders. They may even be seen carrying the school bags belonging to older children from the middle-class homes where they work as domestic helpers. The starting point for much child research is still a very narrow range of definitions of the child, based on expectations and experiences of children 22 MARTIN WOODHEAD growing up in minority world contexts of Europe and especially North America.
These are pre-sociological theories, according to James et al. They represent ‘developmental psychology’ as being about scientific study of the naturally developing child, especially as in Jean Piaget’s genetic epistemology. So, what is the critique of developmental approaches, and if jettisoned, what are the implications for Childhood Studies? According to its critics, the developmental paradigm constructs children as in a state of ‘not yet being’. As immature learners, children are viewed a set of ‘potentials’, a ‘project in the making’, researched within an evaluative frame that is mainly interested in their position on the stage-like journey to mature, rational, responsible, autonomous, adult competence (Walkerdine 1993; Verhellen 1997).
Meanwhile, studies of the impact of early trauma draw attention to evidence of children’s coping strategies, and sometimes their remarkable resilience (Woodhead et al. 2003). Another version of this theme recurs within the sociological literature. Macro theories have emphasized the power of social structure to shape individual lives, while microanalysis of social process has revealed the ways individuals contribute to the creation of social life. g. Hutchby and Moran-Ellis 1998) as well as in mapping the ways children construct their socialization (Mayall 1994).
