Guide to Creating Child-friendly Versions of Written Documents

Children gave us the following reasons why documents, laws and policies should be child-friendly:

If it’s friendly for the adults, it should be friendly for the kids. And if it’s friendly for the kids, it will also be more friendly for the adults.

Children are EU citizens too.

Children will be more likely to accept and obey laws if they understand them.

How else can children know what their government is supposed to be doing?

All documents should be understandable to children because children deserve to know what their rights are, in a way that is suitable for them.

Because understanding the world around you, and protecting yourself, is never a bad thing.
