Child rights video: 'Because it's our right'

This video from Children of Prisoners Europe is for caregivers, teachers, and service providers who are supporting children during the difficult time when their parent is in prison.

The video is based on Article 9 of the UNCRC which states that children have the right to be in contact with their parents, unless this is contrary to the child's best interests. Often, children are unaware of this right. To help them understand their right, as well as ways to connect with a parent who is far away, professionals can watch this video with the child, and use the discussion prompts provided to help begin a discussion about keeping in touch.
