I would like to add an additional concern. While nutrition, education, safety are certainly important issues, one that rarely gets serious attention is the issue of emotional neglect/abuse. Because the scars are invisible this form of suffering largely goes unaddressed. I would like to see people concerned about children being put in long hours of daycare -- sometimes over 50 hours a week. I would like to see people as concerned about children's emotional needs and mental health as they are with their educational and physical needs.
Sasha, you're right - emotional abuse is a very serious and often invisible issue. Have you looked at causes.com/discover for related campaigns? If you can't find a campaign raising awareness about emotional abuse, you can also start one: causes.com/causes/new!
Thank you Emily -- I will look.
asylum seeker and refugee children, their exposure to trauma and torture, their lack of stability and safety, their constant fear.
You're right - refugee children undergo huge trauma... What do you think that countries that offer asylum can do to help those children?
Right to childhood... Every child should experience the joy of exploring, reasoning, creativity & amazement.
Give them the right to childhood... Every child should experience the joy of exploring, reasoning, creativity & amazement.
Now a days another problem is that, children are not getting nutritious food which will cause malnutrition. Increase in addition of food additives and lowering the quality of food.
I agree with you. Malnutrition not only decreases health, but then the children can't focus as well in school! There are a number of campaigns about improving school food programs, and you can find them at causes.com/discover.
Discrimination against girl child and female feticide is one of the most critical problems of child rights in India.
This is definitely a huge issue. If you haven't seen it already, take a look at causes.com/itsagirl -- they're running a huge campaign against gendercide!
i, dislike it too much when i hear a person saying there is no God, especially a child, due to what he or she might have gone through
i just hate child abuse and the person related to this if i have a power then i should punish them and strictly band this types of work
children not having access to proper nutrition or adequate food. goes for their families too. also educating parents of children in the US about nutrition for their families.
children begging in road, working in small scale companies, children sent by their own parent for money ,,, should be strictly banned.,
