Changes in the concept of Childhood: Implications on Children in Ghana


Author(s): Agya BOAKYE-BOATEN

The concept of childhood continues to undergo tremendous transformation especially in Africa and particular in Ghana. Some of the most influential factors responsible for this change among other things include economic, socio-cultural and political dynamics. This paper examines the traditional concept of childhood in Africa in general and particularly in Ghana, the factors that have affected the transformations, and its implications on children. I conclude that these changes have redefined what childhood is in Ghana, and thus have negatively impacted the society's obligations to its children.
