LAGUNAS, David. Biological origins of power, domestication and normalization of childhood. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.1, pp.111-122. ISSN 1692-715X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11600/1692715x.1315070414.

This article begins with the idea that it is not known what is natural in human beings, but it is known that cultural criteria act as the determinants for what is natural. Humans obtain their rationality from unknown conditions and are inspired to exercise this rationality in domestic conditions. The category of age, along with sex and race, are the areas most subject to normalization in the field of human domestication. Human biology, domestication and the exercising of power, as well as the cultural processes of normalization, are mutually clarified through comparisons of different cultures. It is through this process that the multiple dimensions of the social construction of childhood emerge.
