The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the ethical complexities to be considered whilst conducting research related to adolescents. In order to facilitate the reflection, John’s model is used (John, 2000). This enables structured reflection through analysis of complex decision making to develop learning and understanding which ensures research involving adolescents is ethically sound. Critical evaluation of such ethical considerations helps provide an objective perspective of the process undertaken and the limitations and successes of facilitating children as active agents in research and clarifies the role of the researcher.
