important rights list of children’s
In most developing countries rights of children are being neglected. Rights may be described as legally recognised privileges that are granted to a person for his proper physical, mental and spiritual growth and development towards realisation of his best self. The Geneva Convention of the United Nations have identified some basic rights for the children. These are…
- Right to protection from all kinds of threats.
- Right to live and survive.
- Right to education.
- Right to healthy physical and mental development.
- Right to health and hygiene.
- Right not to be forced into labour. and more….
Thus the children should be protected from all kinds of threats. The society should ensure and maintain such conditions as would safe-guard them against all situations that might endanger their life and survival. They should be provided with food, clothing, shelter, education, and health care. At the time they should be given opportunities to cultivate virtues and imbibe good thoughts. in fact, adequate care should be taken in all respects so that the children can enjoy their Rights and grow up to useful citizens and worthy men.
