Good writing- especially good, modern writing, seems to demand facts. It’s as if modern readers are so unimaginative, and so devoid of the ability to reason- to read between the lines, gather clues of nuance or read emotionally- that they need the facts simply laid before them.

Factitious quibbling children are no different.

Observational studies can be done as a piece of descriptive research in its own right, as an exploratory method for quantitative research or can be used in triangulation to validate a piece of other qualitative research. (In triangulation, it provides an alternative view that can be compared with data gathered in other ways). They are also used as part of ethnography (i.e. detailed studies of small groups of people with a complex society) alongside in-depth interviews, life histories and personal document analysis.
