Children's Rights Alliance for England

New child friendly resources on children's rights

 

Children's Rights Alliance for England has launched two publications for children and young people on how well the UK is respecting children’s rights.

 

Funded by the UK Department for Education, the two pamphlets summarise the Concluding Observations – the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child’s verdict on how well the UK is respecting children’s rights - in child-friendly language.  One is aimed at younger children aged between 7 and 11 years and the other for children aged between 12 and 17 years.  The new UK Minister for Children and Families, Robert Goodwill has written a foreword.

 

Children’s Rights Alliance for England worked with children at Hove Junior School and the Change it! steering group to co-produce the summaries to ensure they are accessible to children of different age groups.  Children and young people can use the resources to find out how well the UK Government is doing on a range of issues relating to children’s rights including making sure that children have a decent place to live, are kept safe, have a good education and are listened to.

Help is at hand with the Positive Parenting Campaign

It’s normal for children to go through tricky periods and to display signs of unwanted behaviours, so it’s important for parents and other carers to feel that they are not alone and know where to find support when they need it.

Through the ‘Parenting. Give it time’ website, you can find a range of hints and tips which support parents, and those who care for children, through the early years. There’s advice on tantrums, bed time routines, potty training, mealtimes and everything in between!

We have developed a number of helpful and fun resources including a ‘Scavenger hunt’ to play at the park, a game of ‘What can I see?’ for car journeys and a ‘Placemat’ to colour and personalise. The resources are all free to download  Positive Parenting
