What could your community do differently to make sure everyone understands children’s rights?

Recommended Posts

Guest Amanda, Japan

We can start from the compulsory education that everyone can learn basic knowledge and what those rights mean. Also, people in a community communicate often and keep eyes on/take care of children in community as a community, so that children can grow up safely in a community.

Did you ever think that human and children's rights might be too ambitious?  Maybe we need to start smaller and work our way up to this level? It just feels like no one takes them seriously and don't mind failing them at the moment so what's the point?

The problem is Amanda who gets to decide what is in the education syllabus? This has a HUGE effect on what community means in the education!

Education for the wider community is key to engage both the adult population and the children of the area. Making each party aware of the others issues. This would provide the platform for children’s rights to be raised.

I think the key would definitely be to promote this more through education

We should always remember that extra steps/action might be needed to support girls & young women in voicing their points of view. They often face additional barriers which limit & hinder their potential.

A very practical suggestion: holding regular public sessions which are co-led by the children and discuss challenges children face & facilitate mutual understanding. Communication is key!

Here in the UK, Children are expected to have rights and to be treated in a certain way. Although this is not always the case, the law gives children rights and more importantly the law enforcement will act upon it if there is an injustice. Therefore, I think encouraging children within their own communities and doing youth led events will go alongside standing up for children's rights.  Youth are the way forward.

The community has to advise all children to go to school or technical studies to get skills which can help them to succeed in future

My experience is limited to research on missing migrant children. There are people far more qualified than I to talk on this issue but, nonetheless, here are my thoughts.  In Germany, I think the wider community considers widespread child rights abuses to be something that occurs in other countries. I think they trust that German institutions will, for the most part, get it right and that cases of children not accessing their rights are extreme outliers. There also appears to be a lack of appreciation Europe-wide for just how much danger a child who cannot access or his or her rights faces. Public education should not only focus on what the rights of the children are, but also the possible consequences of them not being accessed. Education of police departments in this regard is also important.

Some community members need to be given authority to act to those people that abuse children's rights

 its the goverment's responsibility/role to remind the community with iron hand of children's rights and responsibilities

Parents/guardians should sensitize their children about their rights such that they get to know them and by so doing, it will lead to understand children rights.
