Children, Education, communities
Children often ask adults for guidance, respect and patience and this should include the right to hear the voice of children. The various contexts of decision making include participation in the process of individual decision making, service development, research, participation in communities and the ability to influence public awareness and policy. Children are have the will of participating in decision making which often extends beyond their immediate needs and their personal individual interests but in reflection to other contexts. For participation to be effective there should be the presence of required skills and knowledge and a critical reflection and evaluation of the participation process and outcomes.
