What do we lose when we lose children?

Re-childing the COVID-19 pandemic; and what we lose from the un-childed public

“As the pandemic has shown, when children are neither seen nor heard they are easily forgotten from the imaginary “public” in public health […] Thus marginalized, children have much to lose, including health policy that effectively considers their needs or provides opportunities to participate, access information and build relationships with non-parenting adults. But we, adults, have much to lose from society’s un-childing, too.”
