Question and answer
6. explain the importance of active participation of children and young people in decisions affecting their lives (unit 7)
Children need to actively participate in decisions that will affect their life. [ Children that are young need to make simple choices that enables them to find out their likes and dislikes, it can be as simple as having a choice between an apple and a pear. This will enable them to express their needs and wishes. Letting the children make choices builds a child’s confidence, self esteem and their social skills. In our setting the children make choices all the time, this will be when a child makes a choice on what they want to do or who they want to do it with, these are simple choices that a
child of pre-school age can make for themselves. This will enable the child to develop more and make choices later on in life that are more important such as, relationships, whether to gain a qualification?, when to get married?, when to have children?, what course at college? or what job they may undertake?, these will all be big decisions that could affect the rest of their life. We as practitioners need to actively listen to the child’s choices and other ways that they may be able to communicate their wishes such as pointing, pictures, signing (non verbal). We need to understand that children have voices and they should be heard and providing that they or others are not in any significant harm, then their wishes should be listened to and followed. ]
