Children’s Rights


Children are human beings who are between the developmental stages of infancy and puberty. Children have fewer rights than adults and are classified as minors by law. They are unable to make serious decisions. However, there are many issues that children are facing. For example, there is a large number of children suffering from violence in the community.

As parents, we can help our children develop healthy behaviors. In addition, there are several programs and initiatives that support children’s rights. In the Council of Europe, children are protected under various human rights treaties. In 2006, the European Commission published a document that aims to promote children’s rights in Europe. In addition, the Commission has elaborated action plans for children, including a plan for unaccompanied minors.

Children’s bodies are different from adults’, which makes them more susceptible to disease and injury. Children breathe in more air per pound of body weight, and their skin is thinner. As a result, they lose body heat more easily and need more water to stay healthy. Children also spend more time outdoors and on the ground than adults. Furthermore, they put their hands in their mouths more often than adults, which can lead to injuries.

Whether children are born into a family or live on the streets, each one of them has the right to live. The right to live is a fundamental human right that governments must guarantee. Children must be registered, given an official name and be looked after by their parents. Their right to an identity is another fundamental right. It is important to protect children from sexual exploitation and harmful drugs.

Parents should be empathetic to their children and be able to identify their emotions. They should listen to their children and take note of non-verbal signals to express their feelings. They should also give their children the space and time to express their feelings. It is important to be the kind of role model that you want your child to be.

Children’s rights are protected by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The UN estimates that one billion children suffer some form of violence every year. In fact, one child dies every seven minutes. Children are also entitled to education and health care. This means that UNICEF is doing its part to make the world a better place for children.

UNICEF’s work is guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). The Convention changed the way children are treated as human beings. The United Nations’ Secretary-General strongly encourages countries to protect the rights of children in conflict zones. The Convention has made significant progress in this area, but there are still many challenges to overcome.

Children have the right to live a healthy and happy life. They should not suffer because of their age. It is also important to remember that children have the right to be treated equally.
