From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Children in school
A child (plural: children) is a human between the stages of birth and puberty. The legal definition of "child" generally refers to a minor, otherwise known as a person younger than the age of majority. "Child" may also describe a relationship with a parent or authority figure, or signify group membership in a clan, tribe, or religion; it can also signify being strongly affected by a specific time, place, or circumstance, as in "a child of nature" or "a child of the Sixties."[1]

Legal definitions

Population aged under 15 years in 2005
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child defines a child as "a human being below the age of 18 years unless under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier."[2] Ratified by 192 of 194 member countries. Biologically, a child is anyone in the developmental stage of childhood, between infancy and adulthood.

Attitudes toward children

Social attitudes toward children differ around the world in various cultures. These attitudes have changed over time. .A 1988 study on European attitudes toward the centrality of children found that Italy was more child-centric and Holland less child-centric, with other countries, such as Austria, Great Britain, Ireland and West Germany falling in between.^ Twins receive a great deal of admiration and attention from outsiders, they take more of their parent’s time, and they are so often so devoted to each other that they shun other children.

^ The toy and small breeds such as Chihuahuas, Yorkshire Terriers, Boston Terriers, and other similar sized breeds are perfect for children.

^ This meningitis is more common in children two to six years old who are exposed to a number of other children, such as in day care centers, or who stay with babysitters who care for four or more children.

Age of responsibility

Children in Jerusalem
The age at which children are considered responsible for their own actions (e.g., marriage, voting, etc.) has also changed over time, and this is reflected in the way they are treated in courts of law. In Roman times, children were regarded as not culpable for crimes, a position later adopted by the Church. In the nineteenth century, children younger than seven years old were believed incapable of crime. Children from the age of seven were considered responsible for their actions. Therefore, they could face criminal charges, be sent to adult prison, and be punished like adults by whipping, branding or hanging.[4]
Surveys have found that at least 25 countries around the world have no specified age for compulsory education. Minimum employment age and marriage age also vary. In at least 125 countries, children aged 7-15 may be taken to court and risk imprisonment for criminal acts. .In some countries, children are legally obliged to go to school until they are 14 or 15 years old, but may also work before that age.^ Never go out and just buy a puppy for your child because just like humans, they have their own personalities and may not be the right match for your child.

^ For example, if you feel your child is going to need some medicine, don’t wait to call until all the local drugstores are closed.

^ Consider how many children will be there during the day, large groups may not work well for a shy, easily “lost” child.

A child's right to education is threatened by early marriage, child labour and imprisonment. [5]

Socialization of the child

Children in Namibia
All children go through stages of social development. An infant or very young child will play alone happily. If another child wanders onto the scene, he or she may be physically attacked or pushed out of the way. Next, the child is able to play with another child, gradually learning to share and takes turns. Eventually the group grows larger, to three or four children. .By the time a child enters kindergarten, he or she is usually able to join in and enjoy group experiences.^ Live Experiences by tristan.koreya The Live Experience by psychonausea Scrap_Iron's all-time favourite artists by Scrap_Iron Artists, DJ:s & Groups I've seen live by Stormbringer edit YouTube Videos .

[6]
Children with ADHD and learning disabilities may need extra help in developing social skills. .The impulsive characteristics of an ADHD child may lead to poor peer relationships.^ If you have strong feelings about your child’s care, such an approach may lead to conflict.

Children with poor attention spans may not tune in to social cues in their environment, making it difficult for them to learn social skills through experience.[6]
