Black and Busch open a thoughtful dialogue about research with children, research relationships and the status and location of children in research. Particular attention is given to ethical motivations and considerations and children’s visibility in research and broader society. The chapter explores how researcher values and ethical commitments position children, determine their visibility and influence wider cultures of listening to children. The challenges and fruitfulness of research with children are discussed alongside researcher experiences and highlight the importance of ongoing conversations within research communities.
