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

Recommended Posts

Guest Debs UK

We could start by educating about what human and children rights are - and then we need to make sure that governments are exemplary in passing laws that protect rather than abuse our rights.

I worry that human rights are just an idea we keep in books and people are not truly committed to achieving them. Otherwise, why would we have anyone living on the streets, let alone children?

Communities should join hands together with police so as to protect street children at night.

I ask the police kindly to get to know the reasons as to why that child had left home.

A child should be accepted in the family and given opportunities to participate in discussions and decisions. They are part of the family.

Treat him like your brother. Instead of chasing him just help him because you don’t know what brought him to the street.

I think local councillors should take more of an interest in sharing with the community about children's rights. In the UK, I think many people assume that all children access their rights, however this is not the case, which is why more education is needed.

I think if children attend  given chance to participate in all community meetings it would be a nice idea to help make people understand children's rights

Government should consider having children also represented at parliament such that they also talk about their challenges

Having community centers where children easily go to and have fun activities and adults arrive also invited to learn more

So many good ideas - how do we get them to happen.  We need to be vocal in our passion for human rights - for all people young and old.  Young people are our future - we need to value their input.
