The Rights of Children and Young People
Transcript of The Rights of Children and Young People
'In respect to education, in our country we are obliged to attend school until we are 16. Education is for all and offers equal opportunity to enable us to reach our potential.'
Health and Safety
With regards to health we are also fortunate in our country to be entitled to free health care.
Our Government looks after our safety needs by providing services such as police, ambulances, fire brigade, environmental services such as food safety.
'Your future lies before you,
Like a path of untrodden snow,
Be careful how you tread it,
For every mark will show.'
All children and young people have 'rights' which are protected in law.
Children's commissioners have been appointed for this purpose of looking after the rights.
Children's conditions in the past

Respect, responsibility, restraint, obedience, discipline, kindness, attitude, behaviour, independence.

Children's Rights can be looked at in various situations.
'We should remind ourselves of Malala the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot for speaking up for her right to education.'
Prior to the 1980's it was deemed unnecessary and irrelevant for boys to study cookery and needlework.
But girls didn't study woodwork and metalwork.
Everyone has the opportunity of studying all subjects now.
It is gradually becoming increasingly more commonplace to see males working as chefs and females pursuing male careers.
We have considered issues today which are of utmost importance for the rights of children and young people to enable them to recieve the best that can be offered to them.
