|Samenvatting||The author is Regional Child Development Adviser (Asia) for Save the Children (USA and Norway). In this article she takes the long term view of bringing about child participation, showing how parents and communities can support greater participation by young children in many aspects of their everyday lives, even when cultural norms and local contexts pose challenges. The point is to start from where children, families and communities are, look for naturally occurring opportunities, and build towards what parents and communities decide is better. She shows how positive experiences in the early years both encourage and enable young children to participate during that time, and help to ensure that they will naturally and confidently grow into participatory roles in the future. She also considers how to work with some of the challenges.|
