How can parents support their child to learn about the Convention at home:
- Take the time to ask your child what he/she has learnt recently regarding children’s rights and responsibilities
- Discuss the ideas learned in class, and try to think of examples from your own experiences, or from the media, of rights being respected or denied
- Discuss how your child or your family can promote respect for rights, or help those whose rights have been violated
- Model using rights and responsibility language with your children
- Ask your child’s opinion on children’s rights
