You'd first have to start with the idea that childhood is a social construct - Good way to begin the essay!

Aries - History of childhood

Postman - Childhood disappearing

Palmer - Toxic childhood

Firestone -Child liberationist

Opie is another sociologist and also Ruth benedict

Childhood is socially constructed because it is created by a particular society. Well there is no evidence that supports this really but a sociologist called Stephen Wagg mentioned that childhood is socially constructed as it varies by time place and culture.
