Recently P2 have been sharing their experiences of losing teeth and growing new ones through stories and artwork.
The children have enjoyed a special visit from baby Oliver and his mum Sally. Our Roots of Empathy family visited us to tell us all about being a parent, how they are coping and how Oliver has two teeth. The children were able to give suggestions on how to soothe Oliver when he is teething. Sally showed us all the things needed in her change bag to care for baby Oliver and the children were delighted to see how much Oliver has grown and changed since we last saw him. He showed us he can sit up independently and enjoyed playing with the new toy. Also we had a lovely visit from Oliver’s big sister Chloe P7, she shared how she plays with her brother and helps look after him. The P2s enjoyed asking Chloe questions and seeing Oliver’s pure delight when he realised his big sister was in the room.
The theme focused on how caring and planning for baby during their first year is demanding, exciting and a challenging responsibility. In addition the more a parent can turn these routines into to opportunities for playful and loving interactions. The more a baby can achieve a secure attachment, become competent and cope positively with life.
This much anticipated resource provides information about children’s rights and introduces the United Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC is the internationally mandated children’s rights treaty which sets out the rights that all children and young people should expect and what they need to grow up happy, healthy and safe. It outlines the central role played by parents and families and also recognises that they need protection and assistance to support the rights and wellbeing of their children.
The booklet was created by the UNCRC Parents Network, made up of parenting organisations and Scottish Government policy officials, who have been meeting for over a year to look at how best to inform parents, carers and family members about the rights of their children. It conveys broad universal messaging about children’s rights and has adopted a warm and reassuring tone.
