What do I have to do?

We all know children should be respected as children and as human beings. However this does not always happen as expected.

To perform this activity you are invited to watch two videos on children’s rights, each of them focusing on different issues and connecting with different feelings:

After watching both videos you should identify:

What both videos have in common.

Which children’s rights each one is focusing on.

The consequences for children -advantages and disadvantages-, when those rights are respected and when they are not.

Your feelings and reactions. How do you feel about, what would you like to do and what do you think you can do to respect children’s rights better yourself and to help others to do so as well? You might want to share your ideas at school, in the neighbourhood or with friends to put them into practice!
