This chapter explores how children and parents involved in both contested and non-contested matters viewed their own experiences of children's participation, how much say children actually had, how much they wanted, to what extent their parents wanted them to be involved, and what both saw as the benefits and risks. Topics discussed include preconditions for children's participation, children's views regarding participation, parents' views, and voice and choice in children's participation.

Keywords:   children, participation, parents, child protection, contested matters, non-contested matters
