Abstract: Researching with family members offers an unprecedented opportunity for family scholars to explore new understandings of the lived experiences and a range of other phenomena associated with young children, parents, and significant carers. However, due to the busy and very private nature of family life, being invited into these domestic spaces, and entering into dialogical relationships with others, is a privilege. This chapter contributes to this topic by drawing upon the authors’ empirical research, her collaborative research with colleagues. The intent is that by addressing such topics readers are afforded opportunities to more deeply consider the meaning of ‘participation’ in qualitative research and to critically consider how this translates to ethical, respectful, and meaningful research with young families.
