Name:State of the World's Children Report 2011: Factsheet on Young People and Participation
Description:
  • Today’s young people are more formally educated, more empowered, more globally integratedand more consumer-minded than previous generations. Yet they also have a need for constructive outlets for self-expressionand participation and engagement in political, social and economic life.
  • The 2006 Family Survey indicates that although the traditional norm of respect for elders is still present in Viet Nam, families are becoming more democratic, with more dialogue between young people and their parents. This may indicate that parents are becoming more willing and capable of listening to young people. It may also be caused by the smaller size of families, within which there is a potentially greater role for each member of the family, especially in urban areas. Nonetheless, the Family Survey indicates that some children would not “dare to say directly” if they thought their parents were unfair.
