Abstract

This Open Space commentary will offer a response to the SI paper by Ana Vergara Del Solar, shedding light on global linkages and discontinuities in childhood and parenting in two national contexts which sit at the heart of the neoliberal project (Chile and the UK). In particular it explores how social investment rationales have worked to instrumentalise parent child relationships, enforcing a stifling intensification parenting.
