This paper examines some of the methodological issues and ethical considerations in researching children. Collecting data from children raises issues of informed consent, establishing rapport, and privacy and confidentiality. Children's consent to research remains a contentious issue that requires further deliberations. Researchers need to be flexible in their research with children and be cognisant of the strategies that can be used to enhance the quality of responses from children.
