Adults beware! Children will take your place

Published: 06 December 2010

In the audience, a man in a green jumper asked this question. ‘Adults usually don’t listen to children, because they are older and “wiser”. Children aren’t taken seriously. How can children make adults listen to their needs?’

Shirin Aumeeruddy – Cziffra, Ombudsperson for Children and also former Minister for Women’s Rights and Family Affairs comments that adults get old and have to make room for the children, so it’s better to hear their opinions and ideas. Listen to her advice for children who face a politician that doesn’t want listen.
