A user on the Blend/SketchFlow forums asked a question where the answer is to use routed events in WPF.  Here is the trivial example for that question.

The child control that raises the event:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
using System.Windows.Navigation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace WpfApplication4
{
	/// <summary>
	/// Interaction logic for ChildControl.xaml
	/// </summary>
	public partial class ChildControl : UserControl
	{
		public ChildControl()
		{
			this.InitializeComponent();
		}

		public static readonly RoutedEvent TapEvent = EventManager.RegisterRoutedEvent(
    		"Tap", RoutingStrategy.Bubble, typeof(RoutedEventHandler), typeof(ChildControl));

		// Provide CLR accessors for the event
		public event RoutedEventHandler Tap
		{
	        add { AddHandler(TapEvent, value); }
	        remove { RemoveHandler(TapEvent, value); }
		}

		private void SignalParent(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
		{
			this.RaiseEvent(new RoutedEventArgs(TapEvent, this));
		}
	}
}
<UserControl
	xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
	xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
	xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
	xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
	mc:Ignorable="d"
	x:Class="WpfApplication4.ChildControl"
	x:Name="UserControl"
	UseLayoutRounding="True"
	d:DesignWidth="268" d:DesignHeight="143">

	<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
		<Rectangle Fill="Red" Stroke="Black"/>
		<Button Content="Button" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="62,32,0,67" Width="71" Click="SignalParent"/>
	</Grid>
</UserControl>

The parent control that consumes the event:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
using System.Windows.Navigation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace WpfApplication4
{
	/// <summary>
	/// Interaction logic for ParentControl.xaml
	/// </summary>
	public partial class ParentControl : UserControl
	{
		public ParentControl()
		{
			this.InitializeComponent();
		}

		private void HandleChildSignal(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
		{
			this.Text.Text = "The Child control made this event happen.";
		}
	}
}
<UserControl
	xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
	xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
	xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
	xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
	xmlns:local="clr-namespace:WpfApplication4"
	mc:Ignorable="d"
	x:Class="WpfApplication4.ParentControl"
	x:Name="UserControl"
	UseLayoutRounding="True"
	d:DesignWidth="437" d:DesignHeight="325">

	<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
		<Rectangle Fill="Blue" Stroke="Black"/>
		<local:ChildControl Margin="61,87,108,95" Tap="HandleChildSignal"/>
		<TextBlock x:Name="Text" Height="39" Margin="51,19,135,0" TextWrapping="Wrap" Text="This is the original text" VerticalAlignment="Top" Foreground="White" FontSize="24"/>
	</Grid>
</UserControl>

Usage of the parent class:

<Window
	xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
	xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
	xmlns:local="clr-namespace:WpfApplication4"
	x:Class="WpfApplication4.MainWindow"
	x:Name="Window"
	Title="MainWindow"
	UseLayoutRounding="True"
	Width="640" Height="480">

	<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
		<local:ParentControl Margin="30,33,157,84"/>
	</Grid>
</Window>
