The model of postmodern childhood strives to overcome this historic legacy of generational separation. It tends to view children as a minority group.

In searching for characteristic features of modern childhood, we hypothesize that we will find in the everyday world of children essentially the same dimensions of modernity which constitute the everyday life of adults in developed industrialized societies (Buechner & Fuhs, 1994, p.
