What is it about?

Our study is about parental efforts to make their children's participation in the protests meaningful and enriching. They talked to us about it during the street protest. We are also looking at the theory's recommendations. We show the results on a simple model.

Why is it important?

We show how parents of young children prepare them to understand complex political issues, how they communicate values and support their children in learning and voicing dissent. Collecting this into one model will help adults who don't know how to do it yet.


As a parent of three boys, whom I sometimes take to demonstrations, conversations with other parents turned out to be inspiring and up-building, because they shared how they practice civic education in their families.
