Gonna no say that…
Has anyone ever said something to you because you are young, that made you angry, upset or just annoyed?
We want to know what things people shouldn’t say to a young person so we can put a stop to young people being stereotyped, and help everyone realise that sometimes, even if we don’t mean it, our words can stick.
Here’s some examples (from our own experiences):
1. You’ll learn
2. You’re too young to understand
3. You MUST do this…
So you want to get involved? Simply fill in the form below and let us know a word or phrase that shouldn’t be said to a young person or that someone has said to you JUST because you are young.
Is there a story behind why this person said what they did? You can be completely honest with us, no judgements here, we would love for you to share your story with us. By the end of the year, we will showcase the most said word(s) or phrase that shouldn’t be said to a young person.
PS. We may get back in touch with you if we want to know more about your story, so keep an eye on your inbox!
