eBook - 2005
Rate this:
For millennia children have been valued as possessions - valued by their parents as 'my' child and valued by communities and cultures as 'belonging' to them. Recently, a new way of valuing children has emerged ' valuing them as people in possession of themselves, as people who have rights. This has led to fears that rights will erode love between parents and children, and separate children from their communities and cultures. Childhood and Human Value explains why people feel this way and argues that they are mistaken. Adults in modern societies have separation anxieties about children's right.
