Abstract
This paper aims to explore how children use the limited playing area in a densely populated area in Bandung. Based on three weeks focused ethnography study, this paper attempts to see how the children use the playing area and to what extent the playing becomes gendered. The information was collected through participatory observation by the first author. The information was then analyzed the information using grounded theory. Using a post-developmentalism approach, the findings of this study reveals that they segregate the playing area based on the children’s gender. Some playing is dominated by the boys, and it excludes most of the time the girls from playing. It imposes the girls’ greater control that prevents them to engage in some playing.
