We all live in a rapidly changing world where, arguably, children are at the forefront of technological developments. It is imperative for marketers to understand the behaviour, attitudes and motivations of this ever-evolving and often elusive target group. However, this requires an understanding of how children develop and their abilities at each age.Children present unique challenges to researchers.
