This chapter provides valuable strategies for writing an Institutional Review Board (IRB) proposal that honors children's rights and satisfies institutional concerns about work with human subjects. It discusses ways to integrate child-centered protocols into one's research, and also offers creative suggestions to help scholars translate their projects into the language of the IRB, thus overcoming one of the most frequently cited obstacles to doing research with children. As children are capable both of actively making sense of religion and of impacting others in religious matters, the trick in being a researcher of children and religion is not to lose sight of children's distinctive, fully active constructions of meaning.
