about this item

How do children develop intimate knowledge of others, and navigate and maintain relationships through family change? How do they relate and respond to family and peer-related problems? Informed by the sociology of personal life and family and childhood studies, along with rich ethnographic data, this book presents vivid accounts from children and new insights into children's personal relationships. Through attending to children's embodied, sensory, emotional and biographical experiences, Davies argues that these experiences produce different kinds and qualities of knowledge of others. Examining approaches to researching with children and researching relationships, the book offers a methodological toolkit for researchers and students interested in examining children's personal relationships, as well as presenting clear outlines for policy and practice, valuable for researchers, practitioners and professionals alike.
