How we understand what ‘childhood’ means in today’s society is constantly changing, and the rate of this change is unprecedented. This new edited book explores what it really means to be a child of the 21st century, and how we as professionals, researchers, parents and adults can understand an environment seemingly in constant flux.
The Poor Child chapter seeks to explore and problematise this label in an attempt to understand their contemporary experiences. The pace of change in childhood can be daunting, but this chapter helps students, practitioners and researchers to explore, problematise and understand child poverty in the UK.
