Universal Children's Day - Tuesday, 20 November
ACEI’s Love Me, Teach Me brief aims to provide insight into how to better support children's rights, both in school and through a child’s experience in surrounding community life:
Cornerstone 1. See Me: The Child’s Right to Identity
Every child has the right to be seen, the right to have a name, and the right to a nationality—that is, the right to an identity. In some nations, this right may involve ensuring that children are named and registered at birth. This officially recorded document is crucial for establishing a child’s nationality.
Cornerstone 2. Hear Me: The Child’s Right to Participation
Children should be provided opportunities to participate, whether voicing their opinions and ideas or being provided access to necessary services.
Cornerstone 3. Love Me: The Child’s Right to Security, Stability, and Protection
Children should be loved. Parents are the primary caregivers of their children. They undertake a range of responsibilities and duties in order to foster and facilitate their children’s overall physical, emotional, social, moral, and spiritual development.
Cornerstone 4. Teach Me: The Child’s Right to Education
Education is fundamental to a child’s development. Children should have access to quality educational materials and experiences that engage their full potential.
