Abstract

Several models of child exist, each maintaining child as something other to adult. Stables asserts: “…how we think about [children] does affect how we deal with them” (2008: 1). Seeing children as becomings is a problem. Here, I would like to consider the recommendations from the most recent United Nations’ report card on the implementation of the UNCRC in the UK and place these against the question of how society ‘deals with’ children and whether a report that is more positive than ‘must do better’ is likely to take us beyond seeing the child as different, as other, as becoming.
