This article explores some of the main cruxes in the medical field that Childhood studies scholars have highlighted concerning the relationships between generations. If we intend to implement children’s and adolescents’ right to participate in decisions about health and illness, these are central issues to understanding our society: the distribution of responsibility burdens between adults and children, the recognition and promotion of children’s autonomy, the con-tradictions between the representations used to identify ‘adequate parenting’, and the redefini-tion of power balance in therapeutic relationships.
