    The Terror of Explicitness: Philosophical Remarks on the Idea of a Parenting Contract.Stefan Ramaekers & Bert Lambeir - 2007 - Ethics and Education 2 (2):95-107.
    The new idea of a 'parenting contract', explicitly taking as its point of reference the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, is meant primarily to protect children's rights, and specifically the right to a proper upbringing. The nature of the parent-child relationship is thus drawn into the discourse of rights and duties. Although there is much to be said for parents explicitly attending to their children's upbringing, something of the uniqueness of the parent-child relationship seems to be (...)

    What All Parents Need to Know? Exploring the Hidden Normativity of the Language of Developmental Psychology in Parenting.Stefan Ramaekers & Judith Suissa - 2012 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 46 (3):352-369.
    In this article we focus on how the language of developmental psychology shapes our conceptualisations and understandings of childrearing and of the parent-child relationship. By analysing some examples of contemporary research, policy and popular literature on parenting and parenting support in the UK and Flanders, we explore some of the ways in which normative assumptions about parenthood and upbringing are imported into these areas through the language of developmental psychology. We go on to address the particular attraction of developmental psychology (...)

    Infants, Childhood and Language in Agamben and Cavell: Education as Transformation.Stefan Ramaekers & Joris Vlieghe - 2014 - Ethics and Education 9 (3):292-304.
    In this paper we explore a new way to deal with social inequality and injustice in an educational way. We do so by offering a particular reading of a scene taken from Minnelli's film The Band Wagon which is often regarded as overly western-centred and racist. We argue, however, that the way in which words and movements in this scene function are expressive of an event that can be read as a new beginning and that it is for this reason (...)

    Figures of Disengagement: Charles Taylor, Scientific Parenting, and the Paradox of Late Modernity.Luc Van den Berge & Stefan Ramaekers - 2014 - Educational Theory 64 (6):607-625.
    In this essay Luc Van den Berge and Stefan Ramaekers take the idea of “scientific parenting” as an example of ambiguities that are typical of our late-modern condition. On the one hand, parenting seems like a natural thing to do, which makes “scientific parenting” sound like an oxymoron; on the other hand, a disengaged stance informed by the latest scientific findings is uncritically demanded of parents, as such an approach is conceived of as a panacea. Instead of taking sides in (...)

    Parents as 'Educators': Languages of Education, Pedagogy and 'Parenting'.Stefan Ramaekers & Judith Suissa - 2011 - Ethics and Education 6 (2):197-212.
    In this article, we explore to what extent parents should be ?educators? of their children. In the course of this exploration, we offer some examples of these practices and ways of speaking and thinking, indicate some of the problems and limitations they import into our understanding of the parent?child relationship, and make some tentative suggestions towards an alternative way of thinking about this relationship.

    Child Rearing: Passivity and Being Able to Go On. Wittgenstein on Shared Practices and Seeing Aspects.Stefan Ramaekers & Paul Smeyers - 2008 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 40 (5):638-651.
    It is not uncommon to hear parents say in discussions they have with their children 'Look at it this way'. And called upon for their advice, counsellors too say something to adults with the significance of 'Try to see it like this'. The change of someone's perspective in the context of child rearing is the focus of this paper. Our interest in this lies not so much in giving an answer to the practical problems that are at stake, but at (...)

    Digitisation, Securitisation, and Upbringing: Interrelations and Emerging Questions.Naomi Hodgson & Stefan Ramaekers - 2020 - Ethics and Education 15 (4):391-412.
    ABSTRACT In recent years a tightening of safeguarding legislation and protocols that overlap with anti-terror legislation have given particular shape to discourses and practices of risk management and early intervention, particularly in early childhood education and parenting. Such developments have taken place in a context in which digital technology has become ubiquitous, enabling the role of surveillance in modes of governing to take on new forms. Here as well as giving an overview of literature on the digital in general, we (...)

    But Everything is Against Us Here': Some Thoughts on Noddings and on Exposing Our Educational Present.Stefan Ramaekers - 2013 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 45 (5):494-497.
    Noddings’s radical choice for a particular stance in life is both what makes Happiness and Education a thought-provoking book and what also leads me to have some reservations. First, I briefly outline some of these reservations and focus on what I think are two important difficulties Happiness and Education faces: firstly, the fact that Noddings’s choice for a particular conception of the good is likely to run into resistance and even incomprehension, and secondly, the observation that Noddings seems to be (...)

    Multicultural Education: Embeddedness, Voice and Change.Stefan Ramaekers - 2010 - Ethics and Education 5 (1):55-66.
    This article is a discussion of a dominant (and mostly taken-for-granted) discourse of multicultural education (the phrase 'intercultural education' is sometimes used). My aim is, simply, to highlight two issues which, I think, are insufficiently dealt with in relation to multicultural education: the observation that differences can be irreconcilable and the idea of change. In the first part of this article, I try to sketch this discourse by giving some examples in which some characteristic markers of this discourse are illustrated (...)

    ‘Parents Need to Become Independent Problem Solvers’: A Critical Reading of the Current Parenting Culture Through the Case of Triple P.Stefan Ramaekers & Annabel Vandezande - 2013 - Ethics and Education 8 (1):77 - 88.
    This paper aims to contribute to recent critical work on the current parenting culture. It does so by a critical reading of the individual words/parts of the sentence ?Parents need to become independent problem solvers? ? a characteristic phrase of ?Triple P?, a parenting programme that has recently been implemented as a form of parenting support in a number of countries. The paper aims (1) to bring out and expose some of the worrying features of the current parenting culture, (2) (...)
