The period of life prior to adulthood is one of dramatic change and development of physical, intellectual, psychological, and many other types of characteristics.

  • Definitions of Childhood;

  • Children and Relationships;
  • Perceptions and Depictions of Childhood;
  • Other Issues of Childhood.
