Study urges kids to have wee blether

Have your say

NURSERY workers, parents and carers across Edinburgh are giving young children the chance to inform the work of Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People.

Billed as a “creative conversation” with very young children, Tam Baillie, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, will launch A Right Wee Blether Scotland-wide.

Running from September 12 to October 31, the programme builds on the Commissioner’s 2010 national consultation which saw 74,000 school-age children and young people taking part in a national vote.

Mr Baillie said: “A Right Wee Blether will allow the very youngest children across Scotland to express their thoughts and ideas.

“This can be done in many creative and playful ways and children can respond in whatever way suits them.”
