Dr. Hitaishi Singh, Dr. Jaya Bharti
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR & ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, A.N.D.N.N.M.M. KANPUR
Child Rights are fundamental freedoms and the inherent rights of all human beings below the age of 18. These rights apply to every child, irrespective of the childâ€™s parentâ€™s legal guardianâ€™s race, color, sex, creed or other status. Children and young people have the same general human rights as adults and also specific rights that recognize their special needs. Children are neither the property of their parents nor are they helpless objects of charity. They are human beings and are the subject of their own rights. The Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out the rights that must be realized for children to develop to their full potential. The Convention offers a vision of the child as an individual and as a member of a family and community, with rights and responsibilities appropriate to his or her age and stage of development. By recognizing childrenâ€™s rights in this way, the Convention firmly sets the focus on the whole child.
