Therefore, it is also possible to say that a child’s life that is integrated with the mother’s is not necessarily ‘childish’, and autonomy at a younger age need not make children into (premature) adults; both autonomy and integration are social constructions (cf. Solberg 1990 and 1994). There is, however, a slight gender difference as the ‘autonomous’ children turned out more often to be boys than girls. Yet, again, this does not mean that an integrated life is a ‘girl-life’, for half of all the children whose everyday life is integrated with that of their mothers’ are in fact boys.

Such work has exposed sociological (or any) knowledge as ideological, culturally constructed, contextual and in this sense political: a perspective from one or another structured location is contained within it. Perspectivism is inherent in all knowing, therefore it should also be the starting point of all knowledge production and systematically built into its strategies.
