Connecting Children focuses on children's understandings of care and their views of different family lives. It portrays the lives of children aged 11-12 and shows how families connect children in different ways both in the household but also in their wider kinship networks. The children studied reflect upon family life and especially upon situations where their own family lives change dramatically, such as when parents divorce or are unable to care for them.
This book will be of interest to those working in education, social work, child care, counselling, social policy and childhood studies.

Industry Reviews

"The reading public from outside Great Britain will find this volume helpful in understanding British family policies, law, and family welfare programs. Readers interested in how children conceptualize caring in today's diverging family environments will find this book interesting too. The study showed many convergences in children's conceptions of the importance of their birth parents and in their normative conceptions of parental caring, despite sharp differences in their life experiences.." -CHOICE, July 2001
