The Guardian on the History of Worrying about Children

In case you missed it via ARCH Blog, go check out this one out. Any article that concludes that

"we perhaps need to go further in rethinking what childhood might be like. The first step should be to listen to what children say..."

can't be all bad, though there are some fairly disturbing inferences along the way, since the author doesn't clearly assign the role of tertiary responsibility to the state.

(Why tertiary? Well, if children are making the first call about their own lives, then parents would rightfully come second.)
