These Are Your Rights!

The Book of Children’s Rights

Do I have to help out at home? Do I have the right to have my own room and pocket money? What can I do when my rights are infringed on? Only 16% of the children in Germany know their rights according to the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child. Yet these deal with urgent topics such as equality, inclusion, flight or separation from one’s parents. The most important rights are clearly described in this book. With lots of everyday examples, experience reports and exercises. The book invites children to confront all the exciting, unfair and contradictory topics that come up in their lives.

Children have the right to personal privacy.
