These reflections are based on my role as a family sociologist for over 40 years whose work has consistently included children in its gaze and has embraced families as wider social networks and intergenerational relations. It discusses the rise of childhood studies as a distinctive field and how it engages, and needs to engage, with other social domains and fields of research.
