Workshop: After decades in which children's needs were completely subordinate to those of the parents, recent years have seen an increasing trend toward considering children's independent preferences and feelings. Many professionals agree that children's thoughts and feelings are important, but much of the agreement ends there. In our prior workshop, we presented current research and issues to consider in gathering and interpreting data from children; in this workshop, we consider the issues involved in appropriately considering children's preferences. How do we distinguish between a child's right to be heard and an adult-generated emotional burden, demanding that a child take sides? How do we distinguish between a child's realistic desire to reduce contact with a toxic parent, vs. an inappropriate desire to avoid problems rather than solving them? How do we allow children to appropriately participate in decisions, without ceding control? How does the political context of demands that we listen to the children interact with children's developmental abilities and needs? Our multidisciplinary panel will discuss these and other controversial issues related to considering children's preferences.
