Abstract [en]

This paper combines sociological perspectives on family display, internet studies on family and private photography and a child studies perspective on the display of children. The paper proposes that blogging practices related to visits to theme and amusement parks in Sweden provide a new arena for people to displayfami-ly-like relationships. In the different displays,adults mainly use pictures of chil-dren in the blogs to demonstratetheir ability to perform family-likerelationships. The paper suggests that thisform of child-centred display,a visualized child-centredness, done during the park visit as well as in the blogging, is part of the construction of contemporary childhoods and what it means to be a child today and has not been theorized in earlier research on the display of family-like rela-tions.
