To help the researcher understand why and how children react to adults who are doing ethnographic research, Fine and Sandstrom explore the methodological and ethical problems of qualitative research with minors.The authors correct numerous fallacies held by researchers that children think like adults and that they cannot hide their thoughts and feelings from adults, especially strangers. Recognizing that age is an important determinant of children's response, they discuss problems and present strategies for conducting research with three age groups of children: preschool children (4 to 6 year olds), preadolescents (10 to 12) and middle adolescents (14 to 16). Illustrating their discussion are case studies from their own work and that of other scholars.This is the first major methodological statement on doing participant observation work with children, and will be of interest to a wide variety of applied researchers in child development, education and other human services as well as those in more traditional ethnographic fields.
