Children essentially have to fit in with these patterns and structures and thus they live in a world largely structured by forces which mostly ignore them as meaningful priorities when that world is formed and reformed. The more rigid this structuring is, the more it will constrain children’s worlds within it, and the degree of rigidity of such structures is determined in part by the extent to which the boundaries within it are permeable or impermeable. If these boundaries are to some extent permeable to children, they have a chance to build their own geographies, to reorder the space to their own desires and in effect create a dimension parallel to that of the adult space, which itself continues to function.
