Abstract

This thesis speculates on the relationship between adults’ perceptions of children and the types of environments adults have traditionally provided for children. Its examination includes the ramifications of human perceptions on the environment. This study places special emphasis upon those ramifications in regard to their effects on the environment’s ability to fulfill children’s developmental needs. The outcome of the study is the proposal of new attitudes and perceptions by which the environment could be more responsive to and respectful of children.
