    Describe children's rights
    How can these rights help in their development?
    As teachers, how can you protect the rights of these children in order to assist them in their development?

      1.  Children have the right to be respected as children of God.
      2.  Nature is working to build a man. Children have the right to be understood in terms of their development, as guided by nature.
      3.  They have the right to be accepted 100%. We must properly guide their behavior while maintaining our acceptance and love for them.
      4.  We must properly guide our own behavior, realizing they are absorbing everything in their environment… which includes us.
      5.  Children have the right to an environment conducive to their psychological health.
      This environment includes: purity, goodness, beauty, patience, gentleness, kindness and cheerfulness.
      6.  Children have the right to nutritious foods which are conducive to their physical development.
      7.  Children have the right to an education which is conducive to what the child will require in order to become a healthy, strong and functional adult able to fit into / be able to survive in the society unto which he was born.
      8.  Children have the right to liberty within boundaries for the sake of pursing what is interesting and stimulating to them. We can facilitate their natural interests and love of learning regarding all the amazing aspects of life.
      9.  Children have the right to learn the rules of proper behavior for the sake of common courtesy,  common sense and safety.
      10. Children have the right to be protected from all that would harm them mentally, physically, psychologically and spiritually.

      We must respect the inner life of the child and not bombard him with too much outer stimulation in the form of screen technologies, and even too much conversational input from us. These influences can be addicting to the psyche of the child.

      We must not expose the child to sexual input in the form of adult themed movies. We risk sexualizing our children too early and robbing them of their innocence in childhood.  (Children who are molested are left permanently scared with devastating psychological consequences. Who knows how early exposure to provocative images in film or real life will affect them!)

    children have the right to be children..
    but they should also be afforded the same bill of right, as paying adults.
    life skills as a curriculum , at every grade level. is what i think  teachers should implement.
    empower our children with the right of personal accountability.
    its the right thing to do.
