WHEN IS CHILDREN’S RIGHTS DAY CELEBRATED?

When is Children’s Rights Day celebrated? Words and messages of the World Children’s Rights Day 2021. It is curious when it is World Children’s Rights Day, which is celebrated around the world to protect the innate rights of our children, to whom we entrust our future. We are sharing the most special messages of Children’s Rights Day on this special day and the date of World Children’s Rights Day, which aims to protect children’s rights for a more livable world.

World Children’s Rights Day, which is a representative day for children to be happy, peaceful and friendly in order for the world to become more livable, has been celebrated all over the world since 1989.

WHEN IS WORLD CHILDREN’S RIGHTS DAY?

On November 20, 1989, the ‘Convention on the Rights of the Child’ was signed by the United Nations General Assembly in order to protect children and improve their living conditions, and from then on, November 20 has been declared ‘World Children’s Rights Day’.

Children’s rights are a universal concept used to define all the rights of all children on Earth, both legally and morally, such as education, health, life, housing, protection against physical, psychological or sexual exploitation, which they have from birth.

THERE ARE ALSO CHILDREN’S RIGHTS IN THE DIGITAL WORLD

Today is World Children’s Rights Day. Every parent should definitely read the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In addition to these basic rights, there is also a concept called ‘children’s rights in the digital world’. As parents, we need to try to raise awareness about this issue as well.

Today is a very important day for our children. November 20 is World Children’s Rights Day. Of course, this is a special day, which is mainly intended to protect children who are struggling for a living in geographies where there is war and poverty. Or, for example, my children are rather at the stage of learning that not all the rights in the world belong to them right now! But I have read the Convention on the Rights of the Child, there are very important articles.

Children’s rights have been talked about for about 10 years, and even babies as young as hand have been approached as individuals for several years. So, what are really the rights of children?

Children’s rights are a universal concept used to define all the rights that all children on Earth have from birth, such as education, health, life, housing, protection against physical, psychological or sexual exploitation. I was particularly interested in the articles of the contract. “Every child has the right to explain his feelings and thoughts as he wants,” he says, for example, in an article. This is very important. However, we don’t really listen to our children in this society who say ”Children are as big as legs”. More precisely, this is how we grew up. We had the right to ’slippers’ the most!

But it’s not like that anymore. The new generation of parents pays much attention to the ideas and feelings of their children. There are even those who exaggerate this situation and turn from a parent-child relationship to a friend relationship. However, ”Mother is mother, child is child, you can’t be friends,” Lorin’s child psychologist had said. The boundaries are actually very clear… Of course, we will pay attention to your ideas, but the family should make the final decision, taking into account the child’s benefit.

“What are the rights of children in the digital world, I can’t get the boy out of the computer. Shouldn’t I try to lift it or not,” I asked! My understanding is that digitalization is the reality of our day. We can’t raise kids like that doesn’t exist. But we also have responsibilities as parents.

Probably, as they will blame us for many things! Teacher explained article by article how it would be for parents to implement a rights-based approach…

– To know that children have the right to education, access to information, expression and participation in online environments and to introduce them to safe platforms and media suitable for their age to exercise these rights.

– To know that children have the right to socialize in digital environments and to allow them to socialize, for example, with well-chosen, age-appropriate, online games.

– To be a guide for them to manage their screen time, to enable them to balance screen and non-screen activities in daily life, to set rules and draw boundaries by reconciling with children.

– To be informed about personal data privacy, internet security and online privacy issues and to talk to them at every opportunity to inform the children about these issues as well.

– To provide children with media and information literacy skills, to be a guide for quality content and game choices, to spend time online together.
