Abstract

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses the three interrelated themes to explore how they offer possibilities with which to refine and extend knowledge about non/normative development and 'different' childhoods. It has been structured around three core themes that speak to critiques of developmental psychology. The book discloses several issues that are relevant to understanding and developing theory about non-normative or different childhoods. It discusses geographical location as it intersects with understandings of nation, childhood and gender for child migrants in a host country; gender and role models within families and other care settings; the location of the child as a vulnerable subject; and development as located within particular understandings of mothers' work, food and social class. The book highlights that the construction of a child was in relation to the duties of adults to provide for and protect children and to ensure that they develop appropriately.
