Short Stores for Children of All Ages: I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE A CHILDI HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE A CHILD

 

In 1989 the leaders of countries belonging to the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a special code of human rights for children under the age of eighteen.

I am a child with eyes, hands, a voice, heart and rights.

I have the right to have a name, a house, a family who smiles at me and a country that I can call my own.

I have the right to have enough food to eat so that I can grow healthy.

I have the right to be treated with the best medicines that were ever invented.

I have the right to go to school without having to pay so that I can learn how birds or planes or poppy seeds fly.

I have the same right whether I am a girl or a boy. Boys and girls like to sing the same songs.

I have exactly the same right to be respected whether I am black or white, small or big, rich or poor, either here or somewhere else.

I have the right to be free from any kind of violence, and no one has the right to take advantage of me because I am a child. NO ONE.

I have the right to go to school or refuse to go to work or choose a job where I learn everything I want to know.

I have the right to learn about friendship, peace and respect for our planet and for each human being who lives on it, for each animal that inhabits it, for each plant that nourishes it.

I have the right to hold all these rights just because I am a child, especially if I live on one of the 194 states in the world that have agreed to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.When will we all have won the right to be respected? Tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, in twenty years? We need our rights to be respected now, today, because it is right now, today, that we are children.
