Principle 3

Use communication children can understand

“Use clear and understandable pictures and sentences. Let me answer in a way that suits me.”
(Mark and Gerben, 11 years old, Netherlands)

  • Make sure that children understand all the information that could have an impact on them. This includes providing terms and conditions and marketing messages in easy-to-understand language.
  • Consider multiple forms of communication (pictures, video, text, sound etc.) on multiple platforms to make information understandable and accessible to all.
  • Keep in mind that age, developmental stages, ability, culture and language impact children’s understanding.
