MANTILLA, María Jimena. Self-Regulation and Protagonism in Parenting. The Agency in the Respectful Parenting Model in Argentina. Anthropologica [online]. 2023, vol.41, n.51, pp.213-228.  Epub 21-Dic-2023. ISSN 0254-9212.

In this paper, I interrogate the images of childhood in the model of respectful parenting from a sociological perspective. I am interested in problematizing the notion of agency in articulation with the new social studies of childhood. To this end, I describe the main characteristics that define respectful parenting from the perspective of its followers, and I focus on the example of complementary feeding where I delve into how it produces a view of babies which enhances their agency when it comes to managing the feeding process. This paper is based on previously conducted ­qualitative ethnographic research about the experiences of middle-class mothers who follow this style of parenting in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Palabras clave : respectful parenting; agency; childhood; complementary feeding; qualitative research.
