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. Participation are all activities that are involved in the developing of opportunities to express a view influence certain diction that is made or achieve change that is desired. Participation and involvement of children should be one that is informed and willing including the presence of marginalized children and those with different ages and abilities (Foley and Leverett 2008).
Some of the key child services include family care and this is the care given to children such as day care services for children aged five years and under, practical home help or services offered by health or education authorities. Child protection is a service offered to young children who are at high risks of undergoing significant risks, therefore, the child's situation is looked into and necessary action is taken to keep the child safe and promote their welfare.

[...] According to Treseder's model, there are those children who often wish to participate at levels that reflect on their abilities, resources that are available and ambitions.

With peer support, children are able to be encouraged to take responsibility for each other and participate actively in the development of positive relationships as well as the community wellbeing.

[...] Interprofessional education is able to bring students from different disciplines together during their training session and this provides an ideal opportunity for establishing a way of thinking in a practitioner's career outset. Practitioners are required to be empowered so that they are in a position of asking what they know and who they are collectively (Zaghlawan and Ostrosky 2011).
