Why a separate convention for children

The UNCRC does not have anything different than the UDHR but it was agreed that Children being children were not able to access these rights and so there needed to be separate legislation. It is up the Government, Parents and Adults everywhere to make sure Children can access their rights. We are the custodians of Children’s rights

Why a separate convention for children?


What s in the uncrc

Decide in small groups if the cards are representing articles in the UNCRC

What’s in the UNCRC?


The uncrc in practice

The UNCRC in Practice


Why won t the usa sign up to the uncrc

Parents see it as interfering – mistrust of the UN (Europeans telling us what do to !)

It would over ride American Law

Children would have a choice to “opt in” to sex education and “alternative world views”

Children would have a right to choose their own religion and Children should believe what their parents believe

Why won’t the USA sign up to the UNCRC?
