Children’s rights: Every day and everywhere is focused on the concept of children’s rights and how these rights are promoted and protected, with a particular focus on two important United Nations (UN) Conventions: the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006). As parents/carers and educators, becoming more familiar with these UN Conventions is a suitable beginning for increasing understanding about the nature of children’s rights and their practical implications. Book 1 of this Everyday Learning Series title explores topics such as:
- setting the context for children’s rights in Australia
- the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
- guiding documents
- children’s right to play
- teaching and learning with children about rights and responsibilities.
