American Childhood In her remembering event essay, Annie Dillard a professor of English and writer at Wesleyan College, recalls the time when her and her friends where chased by a stranger that wouldn’t give up. At the age of seven, Dillard felt that nothing girls did could compare to the trill and excitement she experienced while playing football and baseball with the boys. She was somewhat of a tomboy and had what some people like to call a boy’s arm. She loved the two sports, from the thought of new strategies whispered among one another and throwing her body mightily at someone’s legs to the concentration and courage it took for a chance at victory. Once winter arrived there wasn’t any baseball or football; however, in the winter, they made and threw snowballs at the oncoming/outgoing vehicles as they drove by. One cold and cloudy morning after Christmas, Dillard and the boys strayed away from their homes in search of potential traffic to throw snowballs at. On Reynolds Street, a black Buick was headed in their direction. They spread out quickly made snowballs, aimed, and launched at the approaching vehicle. As usual they hit their target, but this particular time was different from all the other times. The driver pulled over, jumped out, and began chasing after the young juveniles. Without saying a word they all split up, with the exception of Dillard and one of the young boys, Mike Fahey. The angry man continued the pursuit, following the two kids without any signs of giving up. Block after block, through backyards and over picket fences Dillard and Fahey fled with the man trailing closely behind. Before being caught, they ran ten blocks and were extremely exhausted. Dillard admits to being terrified, but did not want the glory to end.

To what extend have ideas about childhood changed over the centuries?
New concepts of childhood have been established to an enormous extent over the centuries. Over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries people have had different ideas of childhood and how children should be raised. On the contrary, as society has developed, perceptions about childhood have arisen. In modern society people have grown and have recognised new notions of childhood. Today, the media plays a large role in the way….
classmates. I’m here to talk about childhood.
What is childhood? According to science, childhood is “the stage before puberty” or, to be more specific, “the state of a child between infancy and adulthood.” But childhood is so much more than a concrete reality defined by literal terms. It is an abstract concept. If, right now, I say that I have never ever ever had a Tamagotchi or played Mario Brothers – now, I know that you’re all thinking, “Wow, that girl has no childhood!” And that time when you found….
Childhood happened like a blur, some instances standing out more than others. There is one place which definitely stands out from my childhood; it is in the woods, barely a mile away from my house – the place where I used to spend entire days with my friends.
I lived on the border of my town, all I needed to get to the woods was to cross the narrow road, jump off the black old fence which was too short to hold anything in – or out and walk, feet shuffling through detritus along the curved path….
