Foundation for Social Welfare Services marks Child Protection Day

News added: 15th May, 2013

On the third anniversary from the launch of the first Positive Parenting Campaign by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services, the main theme for this year is effective communication with children. The Foundation marks Child Protection Day through an informative campaign and the blue ribbon which symbolises commitment in preventing child abuse.

Effective communication helps children to improve their self esteem, learn to communicate, listen to others, and also to foster a sense of respect and responsibility. This is achieved if parents and carers every day dedicate some time to listen to children; involve them in decision making when it is possible; show children that they are being understood and how they feel; criticise the wrong actions children do and not them as a person; be willing to listen to problems that children have and help them overcome difficulties.

Positive parenting is a style of parenting which keeps away any type of abuse and respects children’s right. Children have the right to grow surrounded by respect and loving care. Their rights have to be safeguarded; children need to be guided when taking a decision; need the necessary support to grow up without unnecessary pressures, whilst developing their personality.

Positive parenting includes different important aspects which parents and carers need to consider during their children’s upbringing – provide parenting with a positive approach, based on love, encouragement, discipline, care and positive environment; instead of abuse and violence which lead children to grow up insecure, undisciplined and lacking confidence and self-esteem.
