[Autom. eng. transl.] In his essay the English historian Hugh Cunningham retraces the steps that characterized the history of childhood in the UK of the twentieth century. Only after 1945, Cunningham points out, the country has become aware of childhood, so much so that the approval of various laws protecting it dates back to this era. The last part of the century, on the other hand, was characterized by divergent attitudes: while on the one hand there was a greater care given by the parents to the offspring, on the other hand the parental figures lived their role with more anxiety. Alongside this there was also a general manipulation of childhood by economic and commercial realities.
