REVAH, Daniel. The cultural ideal in childhood definition. Estilos clin. [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 348-367. ISSN 1415-7128.

At academic debates many think that the issues related to these changes, at times separating, at times bringing adults and children closer, not paying attention to what operates as a cultural ideal: the significant young/youth. This article points out a certain way of  significant and what it determines as a cultural ideal, having the speculative devices in mind, that currently define the place of childhood, as the Barbie device analised at the end of this article.
