Geographers have contributed to the development of concepts in a number of ways, as are clearly summarized by Holloway and Valentine (2000). First, they have added to explorations of varying childhoods by examining a key factor: place. In particular, they have described how childhoods in many majority world societies, in contrast to childhoods in minority world societies, are structured by ideas of children as workers, contributors, and carers. Second, geographers, among others, have focused on the everyday spaces of childhoods: the home, the school, and the city, and have explored how each, through varying measures, controls and regulates children’s bodies and minds.
