|Samenvatting||David Tolfree is a freelance consultant with a particular interest in children in difficult circumstances. Martin Woodhead is a developmental psychologist at the Open University, United Kingdom, and coordinator of the MA course in Child Development. His recent work has concentrated on cultural aspects of child development and children’s rights. In this article they argue for practitioners, researchers and policy makers in|
early childhood development (ECD) to listen to children. They then discuss processes of working with children that acknowledge the extraordinary capacity that children have for trying to make sense of their situation and find ways of dealing with it. For clarity, the article is set out in three sections: ‘We should listen to children because ...’; ‘How to do it’ and ‘Special factors’.
