Children\'s aren\'t always Rights
But These Are
The historical aspects of Children\'s rights are not a topic of typical discussions. In the past children were treated terribly in the US compared to now. Religious leaders thought that children were inherently evil, because of this people thought children needed to be raised in a strict, punitive way. But this view started to change during the enlightenment period during the 18th century, and the American Revolution because our country didn\'t want to be under the tyranny of Great Britain so children shouldn\'t be under tyranny either. This view continued throughout the industrial revolution.
Children\'s rights today are a very controversial topic. This is because there are a lot of things today that people say violate children\'s rights. Most of the places in the world like Africa, Asia, and South America have implemented little to no children\'s rights at all. Children\'s rights have received a lot of scrutiny, and has been debated a lot because people think that children have to listen to their parents and shouldn\'t really have a say in what happens in their lives. This has caused for us to pass laws restricting the physical strain of a child. Also because of this children have been left to die in many different places.
In 1796 a man named Thomas Spence published a book called "Rights of infants". He was one of the first people to really take a big step towards children\'s right. Also in 1927 a book called "A Child\'s Right to Respect" was published by a man named Janusz Korczak he was the second person to really step up for this. Since then there have been many people to undertake this burden. There are a lot of things that need to do to help make this situation better. We could create other laws protecting children from abuse and sexual assault even laws for parents/care givers based on specific needs of that child or children. But there are a lot of different things we could do to help protect the children of the world. We just have to make them a reality.
