Advocating for Your Child

What does it mean to advocate for your child? It means to speak, plead or argue in favor of and to support them. Kids’ voices aren’t always heard, and sometimes they need our help to speak up for them.

At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we ask parents to speak up. Parents know their children best, and we consider patients and families critical members of our care team. Parents can advocate and speak up for their children in many areas of life, including school, in politics, in healthcare and with other parents and kids.

Parents have many questions about how to best support their kids, and our pediatric experts have the answers.
