Children’s Development from a Cultural/Historical Approach: Children’s Activity in Everyday Local Settings
HMCA1074–90391532–7884Mind, Culture, and Activity, Vol. 16, №1, November 2008: pp. 1?34nd, Culture, and Activity as Foundation for Their Development
A central dilemma in developmental psychology has been to combine general concepts with research of the individual child in all her complexity in everyday life activities. Psychologists such as Riegel, Bronfenbrenner, Burman, Morss, Hedegaard, and Walkerdine have criticized research approaches that study child development from a functional view. Sociologists and anthropologists, such as Corsaro, James, Jenks, Prout, and Qvotrup have instead argued for childhood studies as the alternative to developmental psychology. None of these approaches is alone sufficient; instead, it is important to formulate a theoretical approach of child and youth development that combines general psychological concepts with research of children and youth in concrete settings, such as home or school.
