Abstract

This paper explores how children’s work, in its broadest sense, and the related values and attitudes concerning childhood, have evolved in the context of rapid economic growth in South Korea. It discusses how ideas about children’s main activities, and their status and relationships within the family, have changed and how children’s roles and responsibilities are seen by members of different generations. It interrogates the changing ideas of work in contemporary children’s lives and presents data from a relatively under-researched part of the world.
