[Xmca-l] Re: units of analysis?

Oh come, on Andy!  Where is this "adult world" that apparently children do not live in? Do they live, then, in a separate "child world"? If so, in which of these worlds do parents become alcoholics? Here in Bogotá there are children living in the streets. In Western Africa there are children dying of ebola. Which world do they live in, exactly?

In the context of child-and-carers, I think "attitude" is just as good as "interpretation", "significance", etc., the various words Vygotsky uses to indicate the relation relevant at the child's stage of development.
