Child vs Minor[edit]

The term "child" does not necessarily mean minor but can include adult children as well as adult nondependent children

Does this mean we could distinguish between a children's rights article and a minors' rights article? Ranze (talk) 19:33, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Child's Right to Genital Integrity[edit]

Why does this article make no mention of children's right to genital integrity. This issue is getting a lot of attention in the news lately.DavidHGrateful (talk) 08:46, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

There is a need for a section on recent developments. Sugarcube73 (talk) 11:39, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

There is already a section "physical rights". JopV (talk) 17:41, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Convention on Human Rights and Bioethics[edit]

This convention is a treaty to which 28 of the 47 European member-nations have ratified. There is no reason to believe that removal of healthy tissue the treaty permits removal of healthy tissue with parental consent. It regulates only medical practice. It does not regulate lay person who might perform surgery on a child.

It is unlikely to be completely complied with, especially in nations like Turkey that have a long tradition of circumcision.

However, in nations like Finland, it is likely to be complied with.

It is an important document in Europe and deserves to be mentioned, perhaps with an explanatory note. Sugarcube73 (talk) 13:07, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Your personal views on this are immaterial. You need to cite independent reliable secondary sources to make any of the connections you are claiming, or any of the predictions you are claiming. Many of your recent edits to this article are problematic and need to be reviewed. Zad68 04:26, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Section Types of Rights[edit]

Under the Section of Types of Rights, I recommend an edit about saying that Humans Rights Watch does not include them in it's goals, as they do not want it to happen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gingeroscar (talkcontribs) 19:56, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Do you have a reliably sourced quote from the HRC claiming the HRC's mission intentionally excludes the rights of children? The page at directly contradicts what you're saying. Wikipedia is not a soapbox. As the article indicates, the definition of children's rights varies between individuals. TricksterWolf (talk) 17:11, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Mother's who have a breakdown and when fully recovered want there children returned.!!![edit]

A young mother of two very young children and (through no fault of her own)had a complete breakdown.Her mother and grandmother stepped in to look after her children,and, now after 3 years is fully recovered and an A*grade student with a nice home her children want to live with there "Mammy" again This could not have come at a better time as, a month earlier her elderly grandparents looking after her little boy had rang to say he needed to come back to her as they could no longer manage.All was arranged and put in place, then 3days before they were due to go back to their Mammy their Auntie (who works at social services)and uncle applied to a family court to have him stay with her because,unknown to his mother he had been living with them for 3 weeks and going back to his grandparents on weekends when his mammy was comming up. The mother had to go to a family court and was told she needed to travel up from south every weekend to see her son for 3 hours Saturday and Sunday for 12 weeks.Then the Judge would decide if this little boy could live with his Mother and siblings,Oh they also appointed a court social worker to liaise with the interested parties.THAT was 4 weeks ago and the child's mammy is still waiting to be contacted.WHY ????? In my opinion this should never have got as far as it has!!.IS THIS COMMON SENSE GONE MAD.!!!!. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:41, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 November 2017[edit]

Include text to the section regarding "Convention on the Rights of the Child": These protections are grouped into four main themes, that include survival rights, development rights, protection rights, and participation rights (Children's Rights Alliance). The survival rights include the right to life and the basic needs for existence, such as shelter, nutrition, an adequate standard of living, and access to medical services (Children's Rights Alliance). The development rights include the right to play, leisure, education, cultural activities, freedom of religion, freedom of thought, and freedom of conscience, and access to information. The protection rights include safeguards from abuse, exploitation, and neglect (Children's Rights Alliance). These include refugees, children in the justice system, children in employment, and children in rehabilitation. The participation rights include the freedom to express their opinions, to have a say in things that affect their own lives, and to assemble peacefully (Children's Rights Alliance).

Baby baptism[edit]

Babies don't exhibit theory of mind, neither the law accepts they are already consciously self-aware and able for critical decisions. The modern humans baptize into religions, baby humans how aren't mentally ready. This is an action against the rights of the child! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2149:823B:1B00:7835:D0E0:4068:2D65 (talk) 00:45, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
