Example text

Although I had, as discussed above, chosen to participate as a student in the class, there were situations where I again had to choose the degree of participation suitable at the time. When choosing my level of participation I would consider what would be most conducive to my research but I also considered what effect my level of participation had on the situation I participated in and how this was interpreted by the children. This sounds as if I could sit down and balance the research and ethical questions against each other before participating, but of course that was not how it worked in reality.

When speaking of a specific child I will use that child’s name except when it was not possible to note who said something or whether the speaker was a girl or a boy. I will then, without specifying, say that ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’ or ‘a child’ did or said something. In relation to calling the children ‘children’ I should, to be consistent, generally call the adults ‘adults’. As the children in this study do not generally talk of ‘adults’ as a group I only do so in relation to discussions relating to the generational order.

Mandell argues for minimising the physical differences between adults and children, and she herself became an active participant over time, joining the children in their games (Mandell 1988). This ‘least adult’ role is, on the other hand, criticised by A. James, C. Jenks and A. Prout (1998:183) who argue that since adults cannot pass unnoticed among children as age, size and authority intervenes, one should instead reflect on the significance of these differences. 49 CHAPTER THREE Graue and Walsh (1998) point out that the social, physical, cognitive, and political distance “between the adult and the child makes their relationship very different from the relationship among adults.
