“Children’s views should be listened to when developing a child friendly society. By encouraging this simple form of participation, one can enable children to contribute actively to the world beyond the family- school, leisure activities, the local community”.

“Reconciling working and family life should revalue and restructure work practices, upgrade health care and family life and generally help to improve the quality of life”.

They recognised State responsibility in this respect and decided to take some further step with a view to preventing any form of violence within the family”
