Article of the Week – Article 5 & 18
In addition to rights that belong to children, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child also talks about rights for parents and carers. These include Article 5 (parental guidance) and Article 18 (parental responsibilities and state assistance).
Article 5 says that governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents and carers to provide guidance and direction to their child as they grow up. Article 18 states that parents share responsibility for bringing up their child and should always consider what is best for the child. It also talks about government support for children and parents.
Article of the Week will be taking a small break and will be back on 14 April.
