This chapter draws together themes from all the preceding contributions in order to ask some questions about child-adult relationships, questions of theoretical interest that are also salient for practitioners and policy makers. It observes that political and social theories are beginning to engage, from different directions, with questions about how communities of meaning and action are constructed when communicative styles and competencies are divergent. It attempts to explore the nature of this engagement, and point to some future directions, both for research and for social action in communities.

Keywords:   child-adult relationships, social theories, autonomy, communicative styles, dialogue, communities, research, social action
