Scottish Parents' Survey 2021 - children's rights: results
Findings on children’s rights from Scottish Parents’ omnibus survey children and families analysis 2021.
5. Understanding of children’s rights
Parents were asked about their understanding of children’s rights. Almost three-quarters (72%) agreed that they had a good understanding of the rights of their child or children, including 34% who strongly agreed. 16% disagreed.
Parents with qualifications at degree level or above were more likely to agree that they had a good understanding of the rights of their child or children than those with other qualifications (77% compared with 68%). There were limited gender differences in agreement, although women were more likely than men to strongly agree that they had a good understanding (37% compared with 28%), while men were more likely than women to disagree that they had a good understanding (21% compared with 13%).
When asked whether parents had a good understanding of the rights of their children, this generally corresponded to how much they said they knew about the UNCRC.
