Subsequently, she also founded the first official newsletter of the ASA Sociology of Children Section, CHILDNEWS, released in winter 1992. The purpose of the section was "to foster the development and dissemination of sociological perspectives on children in the areas of research, theory, policy, practice and teaching. By children, we mean every human being from infancy to the age of legal maturity."
