India has about 440 million children 0-18 years of age. They constitute about 40 percent of the population. These children are a demographic dividend and a big asset for the country. Children due to their tender age and developing mind are dependent on adults for their nurturing and therefore, need special care and protection. Socially and physically children are the weakest member of society.
Children grow and develop well when they have secure and positive relationships with caregivers who have knowledge and skills about how to raise children.
However, many children in India do not reach their full potential because of many reasons like poverty, disability, discrimination due to gender, race, caste and geographical location, and unfavorable environments like conflict, abuse, and violence. They do not receive adequate nutrition, health and care, and lack opportunities in life. These children and their families can be helped.
Children need to be protected from all forms of violence, abuse, and exploitation. They also need to be protected from disease, poor nutrition, and poor health. This means preventing what might happen to damage and hurt a child which will impact his/her physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development.
Children have certain rights like the right to life, right to health, right to education, and right against exploitation. Failure to ensure children’s right to protection adversely affects all rights.
Many children often have their rights violated. Care and Educational professionals working with children play an important role in ensuring that the rights of children in their care are fulfilled. They have certain obligations to ensure that children's rights are not violated.
