Abstract

Taking the starting point in theories on children as competent, in carrying out research and as rational consumers (James, Jenks & Prout 1998/2002, Buckingham 2011), this paper examines what a competent child is and whether it’s a theoretical concept that enriches the analysis of children as co-researchers, or if it is a pitfall. Adequate examples will be presented from a study about children's research on food, and situations and events where children's different competences are illustrated will be discussed. Could it be the case that competent means a number of things?
