In other words, the child is a young person either male or female who is growing up into adulthood in a certain environment (Alaimo & Brian, 34). In essence, the social space allows the child to fantasize through childhood and eventually act out as an adult. This is because child developmentis centered on capacities and the principle that the child's rights to grow up are correspond to his or her evolving capacities within a specific social space (Alaimo & Brian, 28). With this, the social space such as The Neverland as depicted through Peter Pan and Wendy enable the child to experience optimal childhood since this space provides a safe environment for the child to have fun with his or her peers.
