Helping Children Comment on Contact

A new leaflet designed to help children comment on both positive and negative apects of contact with the parent they don't live with has been developed by the Scottish Child Law Centre.

Launched at the recent SCLC conference on Listening To Children in Contested Actions and supported by the Family Law Group of the Murray Stable, the leaflet is filled in by a child or young person with assistance from an independent adult helper.

The form has space for the child to note things that make contact good and also things that make it hard, using a "helping hand" design to collect up to five positive and five negative comment.  The form could be used in court proceedings, and could also be used to make comments to the parent they live with or the parent with whom they are having contact.
