Bringing up children: your views

Key messages received from engagement with those with a parenting role, to help shape the development of the national parenting strategy.

Have you seen this?

This is what we want for all our children and young people.

The wellbeing of children and young people is at the heart of Getting it Right for Every Child. The approach uses eight areas of wellbeing in which children and young people need to progress in order to do well now and in the future. These eight areas are set in the context of the 'four capacities', which are at the heart of Curriculum for Excellence.

The four capacities aim to enable every child and young person to be a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor.

The eight indicators of wellbeing:

  • Safe
  • Active
  • Healthy
  • Respected
  • Achieving
  • Responsible
  • Nurtured
  • Included

These are the basic requirements for all children and young people to grow, develop and reach their full potential. They are shown in this diagram which
we call the 'Wellbeing Wheel':
