Articles for Parents - Society for Children and Youth of BC

SCY, in partnership with UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools program, has designed a series of parent and student engagement tools for a school setting.


Many schools are teaching students about their rights, which is fantastic! But we know from parents that when their children learn about their rights, parents find it challenging to have a rights-based conversation in the home if parents themselves are not empowered with the knowledge of their children’s rights. Our articles are geared towards parents and dispel the common myths around children’s rights and in fact, empower parents as their child’s best advocate. We give suggestions for teaching and guiding children in those teachable moments so that parents do not have to be challenged by their children’s rights, but rather be their child’s ally as they learn about their rights.
